In addition to doing daily quick hits and updates on new developments, we often reflect on major events, changes and happenings through maps, feature posts and tours. And while a map of highrises currently under construction may not get as many views as say photos of Jonathan Toews' new Lincoln Park home, these items are crucial for anyone looking to get the bigger picture of the Chicago real estate scene.
