Infrastructure work is well underway for The 78, a 62-acre megadevelopment planned by Related Midwest for the South Loop area. Set to eventually house more than 13 million square feet of building space and cost $7 billion in total, the vast riverside project is being divided into separate phases, the first of which has been dubbed The 78 North.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a two-building mixed-use development located at 1131 and 1135 W Winona Street in Uptown. Located on an L-shaped site, the project is bound by W Winona Street to the north, N Broadway to the west, the CTA L tracks to the east, and two existing buildings to the south.
Construction is nearing the vertical halfway mark for the 50-story BMO Tower, set to extend the Chicago skyline further southwest into West Loop Gate. Located at 320 S Canal Street, the 727-foot-tall edifice ranks ninth in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown of tallest new developments.
