The 2 buildings along the river north of Concord Place are not part of this next phase. I'd be surprised to see them completed by 2026. The bridge too, they're talking about 2030 for that.

I wish they'd complete things like the bridge and metra station first vs a bunch of boring infill buildings. Things that will actually make the place different.

Those projects are huge expenses that bring in no income for the developer. I would argue the next phase of development with a pedestrian alley, bars/restaurants, 2 concert venues, and a huge public park will certainly "make the place different". That's not even including the upper floors that will contain offices and hundreds of apartments.

I'm guessing the end result in 2026 or whenever will feel a lot like Gallagher Plaza in Wrigleyville. That will likely make some people shudder, but for many others it will be a place to seek out. It will put the area on the mental map for Chicagoans beyond just the grimy area behind Home Depot (all credit to Hideout of course, but only a small slice of the city goes there).

BTW, the Metra stop isn't even included in the RDA/TIF infrastructure plan for Lincoln Yards, so any reconstruction would have to be funded by the city and/or Metra itself.

Page 12 of the presentation says 2025 for the bridge. Is this the same bridge? https://www.chicago.gov/content/dam/...R6_reduced.pdf

It's the same bridge, but I interpreted that as "2025 and onward", not "all of this will happen in 2025".

I swear I saw a 2030 date somewhere for the bridge, but this article from last September (semi-recent) says construction will begin "within 24 months".

Infrastructure in this country seems to be cursed though, and in Chicago especially, so I'll believe it when I see it. The bridge, and other infrastructure components like the 606 extension, have already been pushed back several times. I don't blame SB for focusing on the buildings, which don't require years of reviews from every alphabet agency under the sun.

Yeah I hear ya. This is more of a 'no earlier than 2025' than a 'scheduled for 2025.'

It'll still take awhile to actually complete just due to the nature of the use of the building. But it's shot up pretty quickly which is nice.

The next few buildings are supposed to start in the next few months (Q2 or maybe Q3 - hopefully Q2). I believe that's the 2 parcels just north of the Home Depot on North Ave, near The Hideout - office/entertainment and residential.

In all honesty it's going to be weird with a giant suburban Home Depot right there. It reminds me more of stuff that was happening in Queens and Brooklyn in the years I lived there (i.e. not long ago) where developers would throw stuff up in really "MEH" areas and basically try and organically develop it into something better over the future years.

North Avenue near there though has objectively pretty bad traffic at times. I know they will offer shuttle service to both the Brown and Red lines from here but it would be cool to build a subway extension for a new line off of the Red Line to this area and then down to Goose Island for that very near future other large scale residential development too.

Driving on the inbound Kennedy, I was really surprised at how visible this building was! Even the shorter buildings in this project are going to really have an impact!

Lincoln Yards will be what downtown Brooklyn/LIC is to Manhattan. Or the 78. Either way, I'm glad to see the city transforming with multiple CBD's and skylines like New York/Toronto. There's also several other megaprojects in the pipeline.

Lincoln Yards needs a new CTA stop like the 78. Metra is cool and all but CTA is key. Same with Goose Island.

That whole clybourn/elston area by the river is an urban planning disaster. It's like someone dropped DFW suburbia into our city.

Luckily I think with Lincoln Yards and similar projects, the real estate will skyrocket and redevelopment will be inevitable.

It's a really weird area. All those industrial areas there are just strange IMO. Since moving back to town, we've had to go near that area a bunch of times and I just kind of cringe at it (plus the entire North Ave area up til Old Town).

I do think though if this is successful, we'll probably see that area blow up. I think some of the people who have purchased property or even opened up eateries up there are smart if they can sustain it until the area gets a lot more people.


But the entire transit thing there is just a big blah. I know there's a Metra stop there (convenient for those who work downtown, I guess) and they'll have shuttles to and from the L. The place we lived in at LIC Queens had that which came in handy. Although the walk in the last few years was nicer than what this in Chicago will be right now. That took a number of years in LIC to get to that point though so we'll see.

I'm excited for all these projects in like 6+ years to see the impacts. But the transit planning of some of them is pretty terrible in certain aspects.

I could see the Home Deport get redeveloped. However, if they manage to stay put over the 20 years there will be 6,000+ new residential units right next door. I would imagine some of those residents will have a need for a home improvement store like Home Depot.

Obviously. But for something potentially that dense it's not exactly attractive to be living next to a gigantic parking lot..

Except there is literally another Home Depot right up the Kennedy off Fullerton....

I think the area will be fine with just one Home Depot instead of two.
