Peppercorn Capital, LLC is a Chicago-based commercial real estate development firm exclusively focused on Chicago's West Loop/Fulton Market neighborhood. For nearly two decades Peppercorn Capital has remained an advocate for the preservation and adaptive-reuse of factories and warehouses that contribute to the rich character and history of this unique neighborhood.
Examples of Peppercorn Capital's development philosophy include the Cameron Can Company building, the 7-story clock-tower of which marks the gateway to Fulton Market Street from the west. Also significant is the Schukraft Carriage Company building at 1201 W. Washington Boulevard where truck chassis were designed and built for the Chicago Fire Department over a hundred years ago.
Founded by Philip Denny in 2000, the company currently owns and manages over 30 properties in the West Loop/Fulton Market neighborhood, and remains the largest wholly-owned commercial real estate development and investment company in the neighborhood.
A few of the company's more notable developments are the Crate & Barrel Downtown Headquarters at 240 N. Ashland Avenue, Oprah Winfrey's Angel Network and Basecamp at 30 N. Racine Avenue, Minimal Design at 939 W. Lake Street and McKinsey Consulting/Lunar Design at 1229 W. Washington Boulevard. Other tenants, past and present, include IDEO, InBev, Goose Island Beer Company, Binny's Beverage Depot, Van's Shoes, Adidas, The Hand Cos., Sprout Social and Paramount Events.
