Really amazing amount of development that has pushed west on Chicago. NW corner Chicago and State and that parking lot to the west are screaming for something. That parking lot goes back far.

My friend used to own an eatery in a building that touched the parking lot there. I remember him telling me a handful of years ago that something was in the works...but haven't heard anything in that amount of time.

That is a tank for the polymer slurry for the top of rock caissons. If you drive through the spaghetti exchange, you will see the same tank that Stalworth has next to the bridge piers. If they have no place to pump the polymer slurry, they pump it into the tank. When they are done with it, they add chemicals to dissipate the polymer to return the water to normal and dispose of it.

Loyola owns all that land. They will likely continue to expand their downtown campus onto that land. I heard rumors about them taking down the beautiful corner buildings as part of their plans, so let's hope they have a more sensitive plan now.

Thanks for posting. Said CASE Foundations will finish up "13th to 14th of September." Quick work.

Also makes me wonder if now we'll see groundbreaking on some other imminent projects now that CASE has finished up here, eg 800 W Fulton and others.

I thought LU only owned that parking lot. I thought someone else owned that building on the corner of Chi and State. I used to live in that building and never heard anything of it being owned by LU from anyone i dealt with. But maybe they were just a management company.
