Some poet­ry.…

Giant steel beams frame vin­tage met­al sheds.

Sun pours thru bro­ken roofs and shat­tered panes to spot­light art.

Kel­ly-green grass sprouts over puz­zled rails that once fueled indus­try. 


For decades she has sat idle… 

her song muf­fled from neglect, her soul hid­den from view. 

A mys­te­ri­ous shell used only for the occa­sion­al film back­drop or graf­fi­ti can­vas.


What is that place?” They ask dri­ving by on Dekalb.

I won­der what’s inside”, they say walk­ing by along the path.


Lit­tle do they know she is yearn­ing to pull the cur­tain.

Wait­ing to be re-pur­posed. Wish­ing to be seen. Ready to be reborn. 


And now des­tiny calls. 

The winds of the Phoenix are align­ing to birth new life at Pull­man Yard.


On the hori­zon, a fresh vision ascends. A dynam­ic plan charts trans­for­ma­tion…


His­toric preser­va­tion. 

Sports and fit­ness. 

Arts, games and per­for­mances. 

Healthy foods and nutri­tion. 

Fun by design. Col­lab­o­ra­tive by default. Com­mu­ni­ty hub for play and well­ness.


A gem for the city. In Kirkwood’s front yard. 


If you stand just so, at her core  …and look and lis­ten deeply, you can see the grand aes­thet­ics tak­ing shape. You can hear the thrills of tomor­row. 


But today she awaits the oppor­tu­ni­ty. 


Fences line the prop­er­ty, but they can’t con­tain its promise.

Grime cov­ers her relics, but it can’t mask her beau­ty.

Hun­gry vines grow thru twist­ed met­al and splin­tered brick prov­ing life unde­terred, …fore­shad­ow­ing tri­umph. 


And so she will.


A new day is dawn­ing at Pull­man Yard. Come join us as we plant the seed!
