Daily Real Estate Updates

sudler-sothebys-logo25 August 2009 ? Recent changes to the City’s Olympic plans to level all but one building of the near-south Michael Reese campus include reusing additional buildings that were designed by architect Walter Gropius. After voting down a proposal to place the entire campus on the National Registry of Historic Places, the City’s landmarks commission suggested that a compromise saving a limited number of specific buildings might earn their support. In response, both advocacy group Landmarks Illinois and architects DeStefano Partners submitted proposals that save significant buildings and create a more livable, unique community less reminiscent of the City’s previous urban renewal projects. These two plans, while not yet final, combine functionality for the City’s Olympic bid with exciting and appropriate long-term development for the neighborhood.
