As facade work continues to progress for CA6 Condominiums, developer Belgravia Group has reported sales surpassing the 80 percent mark for this new West Loop edifice. Located at 305-323 S Racine Avenue, the seven-story residential building will house 72 for-sale units.
New details and renderings have been revealed for the upcoming expansions to the Shedd Aquarium at 1200 S DuSable Lake Shore Drive in Museum Campus. The efforts are part of the larger $500 million Centennial Commitment Program culminating in 2030, led by president and CEO Bridget Coughlin who is working with the local office of Valerio Dewalt Train on the design of the new structures. The additions along with internal renovations will bring the core 1930’s building up-to-par for the aquarium’s 21st century needs.
