March Member Meeting — Presentations on “The 78” and  LakeShore East

Come to our March Meeting and learn more about “The 78” and LakeShore East.

The 78 is modern placemaking in action and will transform the largest parcel of undeveloped land in downtown Chicago into the city's 78th
 neighborhood.  It will be a vibrant, unique, mixed-use community that will include residences, boutique retail options, curated restaurant offerings, cultural institutions and office space that will be home to major companies and organizations. The 78 will feature more than 11 acres of publicly accessible green and open space reserved for year-round programming and design features that draw people to a uniquely programmed riverfront with restaurants and entertainment. The 78 will knit together the surrounding neighborhoods of the South Loop, Chinatown, Bronzeville and Pilsen by creating new bike lanes, walking paths and waterfront access, helping to build a connection between downtown Chicago and Chicago's South Side.  Representatives from Related Midwest will be on hand to let attendees know how they can do business with “The 78.”

LendLease Representatives will present
Lakeshore EastSet at the intersection of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan, Lendlease and Magellan bring you the crown jewel of Lakeshore East. Comprised of one rental and two condominium buildings, the project will be delivered across two phases and will include +38,000 SF of publicly accessible open space that connects the site to the lakefront and the Chicago Riverwalk. With Phase-I hard costs that exceed $330M, this project represents an important opportunity for subcontractor participation from across the Chicago construction industry

A buffet lunch will be served.  A sell-out crowd is expected so make your reservation early.

(*Non-members may only attend two events before they must join as a member).
