3) With the inflows of tenants clear, how are developers repositioning assets to meet the needs of the community which already calls these neighborhoods home?

4) Having been given the title of one of the world's coolest neighborhood's Pilsen is under more pressure than ever to defend against the loss of  community and culture it has fought so hard to preserve. How are developers partnering in the community with the goal of development without displacement?

5) With the proposed towers in Lakeshore East bringing 1000's of units to market, what innovative strategies are developers using to balance demand with a need for open space?
