The entrepreneurial hub is expected to open in June 2024 with a business incubator, local café, and a shared commercial kitchen

Chicago, Dec. 5, 2023 – Today, the Foundation of Little Village, a nonprofit focused on building community wealth, cultural preservation, and corridor revitalization in Little Village, broke ground on its highly anticipated commercial and cultural amenity: Xquina Incubator and Café. The 13,000 square foot space is located in an 1880s-era building on the 26th Street Corridor, and the project will restore, modernize, and reintroduce the historic building as a spacious business incubator and inclusive community hub.

“The Foundation of Little Village was built on the concept that by working together with the Little Village community, entrepreneurs, local leaders, and partners, we can achieve economic advancement while preserving the rich culture of and revitalizing the iconic 26th Street Corridor in Little Village,” said Dan Arce, Board president of the Foundation of Little Village. “The Xquina Incubator and Café ties directly into this concept, and we’re thrilled to be here today taking the next step as we create new opportunities for our neighbors.”
