Among URW’s achievements since 2011 are exceeding diversity goals: URW surpassed the City’s goals in MBE, WBE, and ACDBE in concessions and contracting opportunities. Through the re-development, URW also created 300 construction jobs and nearly doubled the full-time workforce. More than 75% of full-time employees are Chicago residents.

Demonstrating our ongoing commitment to continuously innovating in the customer experience, URW is partnering with the CDA and Servy on a mobile ordering pilot that debuted in Fall 2020.
