With $20B in megadevelopments in the construction pipeline, the excitement surrounding the projects changing Chicago is building. In addition to the skyscrapers that will undoubtedly transform the skyline, mixed-use projects like the 6-acre Lincoln Common project and the South Side development are set to have a lasting impact.
As we enter the final stages of the construction boom, join Bisnow and the team as we examine the awe-inspiring efforts made by those driving beneficial impact on an unprecedented scale and tackle pertinent local issues such as how best to ensure that we are developing to serve the entire spectrum of the community. Also, we will tackle the recent reports of the city's heightened flood risk and how best mitigate these concerns considering investor appetite has remained strong in disaster-prone areas such as Texas.
