Major Redevelopment Project on Chicago's Lakefront
The $4 billion project is expected to be built over 30 years, and will include 17.5 million square feet of retail and commercial space.
Robert Sharoff reports:
"The development incorporates significant aspects of New Urbanist and sustainable planning guidelines by extending the city's existing street grid and emphasizing smaller blocks, narrower streets and access to mass transit.
'I think this will be the new downtown for the South Side of Chicago,' said Philip Enquist, a principal at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill."
