    Market Conditions: No End in Sight to Chicago's Luxury Housing Boom
    Remember all those apartments they've been building downtown? We've chattered several times about whether or not they could be absorbed, especially at the record high rents most of the buildings were commanding. Well, apparently, we were worried for no reason as much of the new inventory that came on the market last year, appears to be leasing.

    @Steven - And how, exactly, does Rahm “profit” by getting voted out of office? McCarthy will run as a law-and-order candidate, which is great, and I really like the guy. But Rahm has been great at bringing big business to Chicago, and the momentum we’ve gained as a fast-growing tech sector / business incubator has been phenomenal under his watch. Despite the media narrative and what the haters would have you believe, businesses ARE flocking to the city. Despite the overall population loss, educated young professionals ARE flocking to the city for jobs. And 100k-plus earners are one of our fastest growing demographics. With the crime, I agree, Rahm is playing to his lib base and pandering much too much. But Chicago at large (even a lot of those libs) are finally waking up and realizing this violence is killing our city. Rahm can still turn things around, and he better, or he’s out.

Criminal activity

Residents are not being notified of neighborhood criminal activity in a timely manner.
If residents and guests are not notified by the city or association management companies, the criminals are free to attack again until they are caught.
There must be a better notification system sent immediately once an attack is reported by a victim.

  • JL

    John Adams III
    will be in prison for quite a while.So what your saying is he will get out
    How about this. Bring back the death penalty so people like this will not be getting out of jail. Instead be carry out of jail
    Also your words not mine.
    In a perfect world, not in Chicago. He'll sadly receive a slap on the wrist and be let back out sooner than you think.

  • This guy isn't going to receive a slap on the wrist, he killed a cop, it's game over for him this time. It's the slap on the wrists for his previous (non-homicide) violent crimes that need to be the focal here, and what judges let this filth back out on the streets before he finally hit the murder lottery. These liberal judges need to be publicly shamed and outed.

Another 7,000 apartments expected in downtown Chicago within 2 years

    Another 7,000 apartments expected in downtown Chicago within 2 years
    After setting a record for apartment construction in 2017, downtown Chicago will take a breather - but not for long. While only about 3,000 apartment units are expected to be completed this year, developers next year could challenge the record number of downtown apartments - 4,350 units - built in 2017, Integra Realty Resources executives said Tuesday during the firm's annual apartment and condominium forecast luncheon.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com

  • Great to see demand is (for the most part) keeping up with inventory ... here's to hoping that trend continues. Chicago has such great momentum on the business/development front, another crash would be devastatingly disappointing in the coming years.

Work About to Start on Columbia College’s New Student Center

Three months after the ceremonial groundbreaking, construction crews have finally been given the giddy-up to start work on Columbia College’s new student center at 754 South Wabash Avenue.

Music fans will recognize the address as the former location of Buddy Guy’s Legends — one of the few blues clubs left in a city that was once internationally famous for its blues clubs.  Legends opened at this location in 1989, and moved to 700 South Wabash two decades later.

I wish her well and thank her for the years of providing this unique spot as well as creating jobs for local residents.Sure hope we don't get another bar.
