Related Midwest's 500 Lake Shore Drive in ChicagoIt's December, guys. Time for a trend report! One such probe, a PR-tinged document billed as a "Midwest Residential Real Estate Trend Report", taps the clairvoyance of Chicago industry experts for the year ahead. In brief, the top market trends in 2014 will be amenity-drenched apartments; high-design interiors; big lots; demand for town homes; "a la carte" single-fam construction; the harnessing of mobile devices; and, dog-friendly buildings. Yep, we're seeing evidence of all this. And of course, much of what's already trendy will continue to be so— like armies of service staff waiting on your dog and Ferrari.
