Cool CHICAGO | Hyde Park Development

I thought it was about time to finally start a separate thread for all of the projects going in Hyde Park. It's hard to really understand the changes in this area without looking at the whole picture.

So this thread is focused primarily on the transformation of 53rd Street. Feel free to add anything you think is relevant. I will definitely be adding construction photos, new retail tenants, and projects/ renderings in the near future.

Mixed-use development with office, retail, residential

Phase 1:
Retail podium with structured parking - LA Fitness, Chipotle

Office tower - 150,000 square feet leased to the University of Chicago, retail on first two floors

Future phases: residential tower and mid-rises

Retail tenants: Whole Foods, Chase bank, Original Pancake House
