South Loop grows with planned community

Rising up along Roosevelt
12-acre project will add high-rise and loft condos, smaller retail spaces in South Loop, where residential development is surging

A major property acquisition will close early next year and a major development will rise in the the South Loop. The twist here that it's built around a center... kind of like what has developed at Hasted and the old Maxwell Street area. Looks like a mall.

I guess this is what people want coming to the city... a place that looks like the suburb they came form? Okay, I'm not being sincere here. I promote any development that will add housing options near the Loop and is more than just a highrise. Let's just pray it doesn't look and feel like Woodfield Mall with condos.
