Developer smackdown, round VII: parks, family housing in West Loop vs. South Loop

The neighborhoods now known as the South Loop and the West Loop were once upon a time centers of industry, full of manufacturing buildings and their attendant infrastructure. Parks were not a priority and neither was housing, certainly not housing suitable for families. How have the areas changed and which scores better in these key categories?

Click on the video above and hear two of the neighborhoods’ top developers on the subject as you make your own judgements.

David Chase, of The Thrush Companies, developer of 740 Fulton, represents the West Loop. Keith Giles, a principal in Kargil Development, which is building X/O Condominiums, represents the South Loop. Yo’s truly is the tirelessly instigating moderator.
