  • TinaR 10 year Gold Coast neighbor

    These crimes are reported almost daily in the same exact area.. 1st block of W Divison AND 1100 block of State. The bars at 7 W Division need to be held partially responsible What will it take for the city and Alderman Hopkins to resolve these crimes, large, drunk crowds, that are loud and breaking the law almost every night! Let's not forget the shootings that occurred in this area a couple of months ago!

  • JD Gold Coast Neighbor

    I agree. I never worried about where I lived before in Chicago but now I take cabs home at night even if I am 3-4 blocks away as I feel safer. That is pretty sad. Division and Clark are just as bad. I see drug deals going on there at the red line.

Visualizing The Carillon in River North

The backers of the new mixed-use skyscraper proposed just off Michigan Avenue are trying to drum up support.  To that end, they’re letting the public in on more details of their plans for a 60-story building at 40 East Superior Street.

The Carillon’s podium is being billed as a community amenity, “activating” the streetscape at the corner of Superior and Wabash, which is currently pretty dank.

SafeHouse Goes All In on Its Spy Theme

If nothing else, SafeHouse (60 E. Ontario St., River North) deserves points for really leaning into its spy-hideaway theme. There is Bond-level kitsch everywhere. You have to know a password to get in. Every single staffer will refer to you as “Agent.” A low-key corner bar this is not.

Great rental values where River North meets the Gold Coast
