Zarlengo's Italian Ice and Gelato has been a fixture of the Chicago Height community for decades. The new manufacturing facility adjacent to the retail store is designed to have a pedestrian and an inviting presence. It incorporates landscape walls, outdoor seating, and green areas to define an outdoor room for the patrons of the retail facility. The manufacturing portion of the facility is used as a backdrop to the retail and offices.
The 8000 sq. ft. facility includes 2000 sq. ft. of office and 6000 sq. ft. of manufacturing. The renovated existing retail facility is 1000 sq. ft. The site includes 36 parking spaces and a loading dock.
