Peter Karl Productions expands from Elmhurst studios to its own 8,000-sq. ft. Chicago building

After 14 years at the same Elmhurst location, Peter Karl Productions decided to move into the city to be closer to their clients.

As they searched in an ever-widening arc from downtown, they ultimately bought a building at 1743 N. Harlem with the added plus of more than doubling their previous space.

Karl’s new 8,000-sq. ft. headquarters? nearly a $1 million investment?”is a whole new ballgame,” said partner/vice president David Beedy. “It gives us a chance to do things we couldn’t do before.”

Fifteen-year old Peter Karl Productions produces a number of city and police-sponsored TV shows, such as long-running “Crime Watch” that airs on Ch. 5 and various cable outlets. A podcast of the show launched a few weeks ago.
