This site is located in Chicago’s downtown, and is next to Pritzker Park, the State Street historic retail corridor, the City’s main public library branch, multiple higher education institutions, and several transit stations. The City is seeking redevelopment of this site to build upon the growth trend of its urban core, which has had the fastest growing population of any U.S. city, increasing 50% since 2000.

This site is located in Chicago’s downtown, and is next to Pritzker Park, the State Street historic retail corridor, the City’s main public library branch, multiple higher education institutions, and several transit stations. The City is seeking redevelopment of this site to build upon the growth trend of its urban core, which has had the fastest growing population of any U.S. city, increasing 50% since 2000.

The site includes four City-owned parcels for sale, one of which has a 4-level garage structure at 331 S. Plymouth Court that would need to be demolished. The Cityowned parcels are next to Pritzker Park, which was initially established in 1991 when the Harold Washington Library was completed. Several higher education institutions are located near the site including the University of Illinois at Chicago’s John Marshall Law School, DePaul University, Columbia College, School of the Art Institute, Roosevelt University, and Robert Morris University. The parcels are also next to the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) elevated train station which serves the Orange, Brown, Pink, and Purple lines. There are also underground CTA stations for the Red and Blue lines at State Street and Dearborn Street.
