    Chicago men should pamper themselves with a visit to the Spa at Dana
    For years, I have heard friends praise the joys of "spa days" and never really thought it would be "my thing." Until now. A recent visit to the Spa at Dana for an evening of pampering has convinced me that my friends have been right all along.

Gold Coast Tower Already Under Construction Asks to Grow Taller — Again

That’s what’s happening over at No. 9 Walton, where JDL Development wants to add an additional two stories to its 35-story residential tower going up at 9 West Walton Street.

    Gold Coast Tower Already Under Construction Asks to Grow Taller - Again
    It's not unheard of for the developer of a Chicago skyscraper to ask the city for permission to build a little taller after the plans have already been filed and approved. It is unusual, however, for a developer to ask for more height after the building is already substantially under construction.
