In September of 2013, NBW was approached by Leonard Hollander and Chad Little, two ambitious entrepreneurs that were interested in starting a restaurant at the Green Exchange building on 2545 W. Diversey.  Through our partnership with David Baum of Baum Development, North Branch Works was able obtain a $575,000 grant from the US Department of Health and Human Services Office of Community Service to assist Baum Development in attracting green (environmentally sustainable businesses) to the Green Exchange.

On September 29th, 2016, we celebrated the final loan payment with Leonard and Chad by having dinner there.  The journey to become Arbor passed through North Branch Works and for that we are proud to have been part of their success story.
