Numerous parking lots bit the dust.

A healthy amount of architectural variety.

I mean, c’mon.
I'm very satisfied with the way River North is developing, especially the Wells corridor. Compare that to the awful 2000s-era corridors on State or Wabash. Just explaining why developers in River North haven't pushed for serious height...
