Chicago-based developer Draper & Kramer has officially started work on a new 24-story, 275-unit apartment tower at 2111 S. Wabash Avenue. Despite securing City Council approval back in 2016, the firm was apparently waiting on other development near McCormick Place to happen before starting construction for their latest South Loop project.

The new Wintrust Arena project and a number of hotels have recently been added to the area’s landscape, and high-profile projects like NEMA, Essex on the Park, and 1326 S. Michigan are also getting closer to being finished as well.
