Otherwise, it's Comcast, restaurant depot, warehouses, auto services... those just aren't gonna stick around once the city stops pretending that this will be a manufacturing hub again
Goose Island itself is still reserved for low-scale industrial development, except the Greyhound site. The PMD is still in force there.

Past that, it's got awful transit connections so the city needs to build that transitway up the middle of the island...
