How Chicago's Hottest Neighborhood Is Booming Like Never Before

By  Stephanie Lulay and Tanveer Ali | August 12, 2016 8:07am 

CHICAGO — From luxury high-rise apartment buildings to McDonald's corporate headquarters, a boom of new development in the West Loop is rapidly changing the face of the neighborhood. 

If approved, the nearly 20 residential projects proposed or under construction in the neighborhood would bring more than 5,000 new units of housing to the West Loop. 

To track the progress, DNAinfo compiled a list of major projects that have recently been completed, are under construction or have been proposed on this interactive map. 

As new developments are proposed and new projects break ground, we'll update this map accordingly. 

Want more information on a specific project? Simply click the project's photo for details and our past coverage of the development.

This map will be updated regularly.
