Nature’s Care Company - Case Study
Harbour recently completed Phase I of II for Nature’s Care Co. (NCC) in Chicago’s Downtown Loop. NCC is the first adult use cannabis dispensary in Chicago, and the first dispensary built in the Loop. Harbour was instrumental in this project’s success by assisting in:
- The facilitation in the Department of Building permitting process, including the Commission on Chicago Landmarks
- The acquisition of Chicago Department of Transportation street, alley, and temporary drive permits
- Assistance with ensuring guidelines were met per the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) to attain a Cannabis Dispensary License
- Client support during the Chicago Zoning Board of Appeals and Cannabis Special Use Permitting
- Public relations with the local West Loop Community Organizations
- Developing and managing an expedited phased construction schedule to ensure license acquisition per dispensary proximity guidelines
- Consultation and installation of high-tech security systems with deterrence measures
