Edit: Nevermind, I didn't realize that was the 711 W FM lot along the Kennedy. Too noisy for a park, I though this was in the interior.
Yeah, I think this needs to be a midrise at least. Surprising we haven't seen any whispers of development here when literally every other empty lot in a 1/4 mile radius has been developed or there are plans.

IDOT is also planning to rebuild the Fulton Market bridge over the Kennedy in the next few years, so hopefully they take the opportunity to put in wider sidewalks, maybe some decorative stuff. I'd love to see tree planters but I doubt IDOT would allow it on the bridge deck. The bridges they rebuilt for Jane Addams (Harrison, Halsted, Van Buren, Peoria, Racine, Jackson, Adams) were such a missed opportunity.

Yup, I remember seeing those Kidult videos years ago and thinking how crazy it was. But drones would be pretty funny!

I spotted the core from River North on Orleans the other day. Will get a pic sometime. It's going to make Fulton Market feel a lot closer.

They're working on this, bit by bit. When I worked in the area the Shapack building (167 Green) was under construction and they spent millions to re-route and bury power lines. Our power in the office was cut several times, sometimes intentionally and sometimes by accident.

When Shapack builds 170 N Green, the power lines on that block will be buried as well.
