The city has given producers of MTV's Real World the thumbs up to go ahead with its plan of filming the reality show's next season in Chicago. Just a few short weeks after it was first announced that the long running TV show could be returning to the Windy City, the producers have scored the special use permit needed to transform a former Randolph Street bar/nightclub into a temporary living space for seven people, DNAinfo reports. The show's executive producer hosted a meeting last week to ease concerns and ensure West Loopers that the cast would be monitored 24/7. The two level property, which has no first floor windows, will begin its transformation into the next Real World house this August and filming will take place for 12 weeks. Bunim/Murray Productions plans to lease the space out for a total of five months.
