If I were to plan it, I would get rid of, well, almost all the ramps, and build surface streets on the sides to handle most of the circulation. This is similar in concept to the Rose Kennedy Greenway over the Central Artery (Big Dig) in Boston. I would call it Union Avenue, which is the street that belongs at this point in the grid - but prior to construction of the Kennedy, only ever existed north of Madison and south of Roosevelt.

The park would basically be a 250 foot wide median, clear from Van Buren to Hubbard's Cave: eight and a half glorious blocks.
To do it right, you'd probably need this to be at least four lanes in each direction. If they're split into two roadways with a park in the middle, maybe that's okay... call it Union Boulevard and get the AFLCIO support, put in a proper Haymarket memorial at Randolph.

The main issue I see is the approach from the south... I don't see how you can make this tie into the Circle Interchange without adding a whole mess of new ramps, which there may not even be room for.

It’s looking like this site will become a shipping-container market (“Crate by Related”) this summer.

Since it’s only seasonal, I don’t expect it to be as elaborate as the Boxpark type stuff, but I would love something like the food-cart lots in Portland. They could invite food trucks onto this lot to avoid restrictions on street selling. Would be a great fast-service addition to Restaurant Row, especially for all the new office workers in the area (can’t eat at Girl and the Goat everyday lol)

Two 50-story residential towers could weigh on Fulton Market infrastructure, residents worry

Ally Marotti
Chicago Tribune
January 31, 2018

Quote:
In an area rich with meatpacking history that unfolded in squat brick buildings, Fulton Market district residents have apprehensions about two proposed residential towers that each could rise more than 50 stories.

It’s not the height that concerns neighborhood groups the most. It’s the new people the projects would bring to an area already crowded with employees at companies like Google, co-working space WeWork and investment fund and incubator Sandbox Industries.

But all those people working and dining in the neighborhood is just what's attracting apartment and condominium developers.

“We think it’s a very attractive place to live and we wanted to design the nicest buildings both for sale and for rent,” said Curt Bailey, president of Related Midwest, the company behind both buildings.

This one is pretty nice though I have to admit I like 900 W Randolph more, but neither are boring. Fuck it - build them both at the heights they are proposed at.

Neighbors can worry all they want, but this one is getting approved as is, almost guaranteed. The other one, while I want to get built has its work cut out for it. Here's to the future of the West Loop Ladies and Gents.
