Awesome. Not really old news. I reported a week or so ago that they received a new construction permit for phase 3. Glad to see it moving!

There's plenty of large potential sites in the Near West Side where you could shift events around. Windy City Smokeout moved to the United Center parking lots this year - should be an even better location once the new Damen stop opens. They could also hold festivals on some of the huge tracts of vacant land in the IMD, or at Addams Park like Spring Awakening or Ruido Fest.

TBH, this is a weird complaint from Burnett given that he has approved several new low-income buildings around Union Park in the past (including Heartland Alliance's buildings just to the south), and this new development would contain more than the required amount of affordable housing.
Also these are rentals which surely can't generate equal or more complaints than condos. He's been somewhat tougher on residential proposals in the past so it's not entirely out of character and he doesn't seem opposed to the taller building. He's green lit bascially every commercial proposal to cross his desk though even if west loop condo owners would like him not to.

I doubt the hospitals in the IMD would be overly excited about live events on their doorstep.

Demo building permit issued for 1043 W Fulton Market which is the (proposed) future home of a 147 foot tall hotel part of the whole Hartshorne Plunkard HQ build. This is just a few hundred feet from the Google/SRAM building.

^ That’s pretty cool looking. More variety for the West Loop!
