Updated details has been released for a mixed-use development at 170 N Green Street in the West Loop. Located just north of W Randolph Street, the multi-structure project will replace the old Bridgford Foods plant which was vacated in 2020 and is currently being demolished. The joint venture developers of St. Louis-based Clayco’s real estate division CRG and West Loop native Shapack Partners, have tapped the Chicago-based architecture firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative on the new design.
With final touches now underway for River North’s six-story 61 W Erie Street, it has been reported that the former condominium development by LG Development will switch in function to a boutique Sonder venue for medium-term stays. The news comes as a bounce back for the hotel industry, with a demand for hospitality-oriented companies like Sonder helping to lead this resurgence.
Site prep is now in full swing for the second phase of a three-part development known as The Shops at Big Deahl, located adjacent to Clybourn Corridor. Planned by Structured Development, the completed first phase is a four-story rock climbing gym called Movement Lincoln Park, which wrapped up construction last year. The second stage of the vision, meanwhile, broke ground this past December, and will consist of two mid-rise buildings. Located at 1450 N Dayton Street, this pair of edifices will be 10 and four stories, measuring 117 and 64 feet respectively.
The iconic Morton Salt branding and logo has re-emerged at the former Morton Salt Factory in West Town.

These plans at 1357 N Elston Avenue involve the conversion of the facility into a new entertainment and office venue.
Further details and initial floor plans have been revealed for the next phase of Lincoln Yards near Goose Island.
