Chicago Architecture Blog Provides Must Read Post on McPiers Plans for the South Loop

There has been a ton of information flying around about McPiers plans for development around the "motor row" area.  We feel like we've read most of the articles and frankly it's been tough to follow.

The fine folks at The Chicago Architecture Blog have a must read post that lays out the plans with neighborhood objections and McPier rationale points.  It's a great read and definitely something we highly suggest clicking on to read the full post.

It starts off with the following paragraph.  If you can identify with this sentiment, then you should take 5 minutes and read the post:
The latest plans for a new hotel and arena for the McCormick Place Convention Center are so far-reaching and so entangled with other nearby developments that many otherwise sensible neighborhood residents aren’t sure what to think.
