Everything else is already a large highrise or protected historical buildings.

River North has seen a ton of construction this cycle and a large portion of the remaining vacant lots have been eviscerated with plans in place for a good deal more. They are about to break ground on an entire city block which will feature two towers including one over 950' tall in River North:

Just go to the first page of this thread to see all of the proposals and buildings under construction right now.
Plenty of sites in the Loop and River North: under underutilized older structures, surface parking lots and dated smaller buildings. Near main library: some surface lots and couple of sites along the river.

On the contrary: downtown is far from being built out and what about gateway to Navy Pier? Is the huge vacant parcel still there? Anyway, another example of available sites for development: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl...act=mrc&uact=8
