Already planned by the same developers are 2,700 homes just north of River City on a riverfront site that’s now being called “River South.” If both developments move forward, the entire South Loop landscape could be dramatically different by the time construction wraps up, and that’s a good thing for a downtown neighborhood that was arguably impacted the most by the recent housing crash that started back in ’09.
