Here Now, Curbed Chi's Very First Development Map

View as Map

Good day, development hawks! 'Tis the season for all-out escalation of building construction. There's a couple good months left before the winter slowdown for developers to realize significant progress on their projects, and so it's a fine time to catch up with what's going down in the city. But first, we had to decide where to draw the line. If you included every 5-story construction and retail cluster, it'd make for an awfully busy map. Thus, we chose to plot only those under-construction, near-construction, or recently completed buildings that noticeably alter the streetscape and/or community. We landed on 25, listed below. Most of the developments are at a measurable stage. A few are so big and disruptive that we couldn't pass them up. And it's likely that several more ought to be included, which we'll be tending to in the coming weeks. On with the show!
