New construction building permit issued for a surface parking lot at Madison & Bishop, a block east of Ogden and just south of Union Park. Total of 32 units in 5 stories with ground floor retail. The owner on the permit is listed as the same address for the Pipefitters Local 597, which is right north of this on Washington/Ogden. Not sure if they're developing it or someone else.

Tribune Media puts land along the river up for sale

Chicago Tribune StaffContact Reporter

February 15, 2019

Tribune Media could sell the 37-acre tract of land it owns along the Chicago River that had been slated for redevelopment.

The broadcast company confirmed Friday that it has contracted with Eastdil Secured, a real estate brokerage, to list the property for sale. Eastdil Secured did not immediately return a call for comment.

In October, Tribune Media's plan to build more offices, a hotel and more than 4,000 residential units on the site along the river was approved by the City Council. Tribune Media called the project River District.

Tribune Media is looking to cash out on a massive stretch of land it owns along the Chicago River after winning city approval to build a sprawling mixed-use campus on the site.

In a move that paves the way for the redevelopment of a high-profile chunk of downtown, the broadcast company confirmed it has hired the Chicago office of brokerage Eastdil Secured to sell its 30 acres along the North Branch of the river, where it won zoning approval last fall to develop an 8.5 million-square-foot megaproject it has dubbed "the River District."

The site, now home to the Chicago Tribune's Freedom Center printing plant, was one of the options the city of Chicago presented to Amazon in 2017 as the Seattle-based e-commerce giant began its search for a second headquarters location.
Quote:
"The site presents a qualified investor with the opportunity to develop a cutting-edge, skyline-defining mixed-use neighborhood located at the nexus of Chicago's densest office, residential and entertainment districts," the flyer says.

Yes, it is different. O'Donnell and Riverside control the site north of Chicago Ave which is a separate development. Seems like Riverside's attention is focused more on BofA Tower these days.
