Planning & Development
No Casino for the South Loop
Mayor Lori Lightfoot's City Council committee has chosen Ballys at the former Tribune printing plant (Halsted & Chicago) as the site of Chicago's casino. City Council action this week should make it official. A temporary casino is to operate at Medinah Temple in River North while the riverside casino—and a new Chicago Avenue bridge—are being built.
Streets Under Construction
Sidewalk reconstruction adjacent to the Old Post Office on Harrison has closed the bike lanes in that area.
Ida B. Wells Drive is being resurfaced between Congress Plaza and Columbus. Work should be finished by May 31.
A roundup of what's proposed and underway for the South Loop was the program at our annual meeting in January. You can watch it on YouTube.
Parking restrictions are in place for the South Loop from Roosevelt Road to Cermak Rd. from Lake Shore Drive to Clark St. during all Chicago Bears football games and many other Soldier Field events. Wintrust Arena events have been removed from the parking restrictions. Vehicles parked in the South Loop without a valid South Loop Event Parking Pass, South Loop Event Guest Pass or Residential Permit Parking pass (for Residential Permit Parking Streets ONLY) are subject to ticketing or towing.
