>>1853357>Do you see a decent amount of new construction around Chicago?
I noticed a few towers going up next to the river but didn’t explore other areas.
Yes, lots, albeit small-scale. Chicago is exceptionally dense for an American city and every lot supports at a minimum 2-3 units, so most construction is on small-scale multifamily. Larger, especially TOD projects are common.
Larger-scale projects to look at for the next few years>Lincoln Yards
Redeveloping several hundred acres of formerly industrial land along the Chicago River between Lincoln Park and Wicker Park >The 78
Similar high-rise development on formerly industrial land in South Loop(pic rel)>>1853357>Btw what is the west side like? Everyone only talks about north, south and the Loop.
Bad. Really bad.
The west side - Garfield Park, Humboldt Park, Austin, Cicero - extremely dangerous. Possibly worse than the South Side.
West loop, due west of the loop, is a very nice area though.
