110 N. Wacker ChicagoChicago’s latest building boom along the riverfront is about to enter its next phase, as long as a new high-profile project that’s being discussed gets approval from the Chicago Plan Commission next month. Being proposed is a massive 52-story tower that, if built, would be situated at 110 N. Wacker right alongside the South Branch of the Chicago River. 

Although the new tower will house offices rather than residential living spaces, 110 N. Wacker would still be a prominent addition to the Loop, which has seen a high concentration of large-scale development over the last couple years. 

In fact, several other major developments are already in the works just down the street from 110 N. Wacker, most notably Riverline, which is occupies one of the last

Chicago’s Fulton Market has seen all sorts of new development in recent months, including everything from major commercial projects to boutique-style hotels that are completely transforming this part of the city into a trendy place to live, work, or simply visit.  

Along with many who already call Fulton Market home, the city of Chicago has also taken notice in the neighborhood’s ongoing transformation, which is why it’s planning to invest nearly $20 million into a streetscape project that should help boost the area’s already rapidly growing appeal.  

According to a release, the project would involve adding new pavement and cobblestone to select intersections, as well as improving street lighting and adding more pedestrian-friendly upgrades all

West Loop residents who are less-than-thrilled with how dense the neighborhood is becoming were recently presented with a revised plan to redevelop a site at 845 W. Madison. And while the original plan called for 627 units, the new version would still add 586 luxury rentals to the West Loop landscape, as well as 14 townhouse, 293 parking spaces, and about 10,000 square feet of retail space. 

Developers are also saying the revised version also greatly reduces its visual impact at street level, most notably when viewed from Adams & Sangamon Park, which sits directly across the street. 

In addition, the new design also includes a number of setbacks, which should help minimize shadows and still allow for the park to enjoy plenty of natural sunlight. If
