Looking down on South Loop development sites

by Joe Zekas on 9/25/12

The yellow and white tower cranes in the above photo mark the sites, respectively, of the new Jones College Prep building and a new dorm under construction for East-West University.

The car-filled vacant lot just east of the tracks at the lower left of the photo is the site of a proposed two-tower 398-unit apartment development by AMLI Residential. The parking lot just west of the El tracks in the lower right of the photo is where Golub & Company has proposed a 39-story, 392-unit apartment tower.

Sloopin, which was recently voted one of the city’s top neighborhood sites by YoChicago and the Community Media Workshop, posted yesterday that a new Mariano’s is scheduled to break ground at the southeast corner of 16th and Clark. That’s the void-of-cars vacant lot east of the tracks in the following photo.

As (almost) always at YoChicago you can click the images for a much larger version.

You can see a growing number of aerial images from YoChicago’s recent helicopter trip in an album at Flickr.
