    About Lincoln Yards
    Lincoln Yards is a $5B mixed-use development project located along the North Branch of the Chicago River between the Lincoln Park and Bucktown communities. The Plans include 13M s/f of office space, 6,000 residential units with affordable housing, hotel and 100,000 s/f retail space and 21 acres of green space, including an 11 acre park with sports fields. Significant infrastructure improvements are to be made including a revised street grid, new bridges and parking garages, and relocating the Clyborne Metra station.

    About SouthBridge
    Formerly the site of the Harold Ickes Homes, a CHA public housing property demolished in 2010, McCaffery Interests and The Community Builders have been chosen by the Chicago Housing Authority to develop the 11-acre Southbridge. Located at the major arterial intersection of Cermak and State Street in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood across from the Green line CTA station, this mixed-income, mixed-use development will revitalize the budding community with multiple retail and residential options. Southbridge will include rental and for-sale housing across a broad spectrum of affordability. The development is adjacent to important community amenities, including recreational playing fields and the National Teacher’s Academy. 

    Come to this afternoon of networking and learn how you can do business with these fantastic projects in Chicago!   A buffet lunch will be served.
