This might be a bit OT, but since it involves south loop development, hopefully it's worth a comment:

I feel like Chicago needs to demo the circular on ramps for the Ike east of the river. Since there is a stop light about 200 meters from where these ramps are, it makes absolutely no sense why valuable real estate should be wasted on infrastructure for high speed merging . There is no reason why anyone getting on or off the IKE couldn't just turn on/from Clark St. at the stoplight. Like a fart at the dinner table, those stupid access ramps stop the flow of the city dead in its tracks. I am almost willing to guarantee that if you built up those blocks, the "Riverside Whatever" development to the south would become significantly more valuable.
