Curbed Chicago Previews Some Big Development Stories for 2017

A look at a rendering of how Jahn's 1000 S. Michigan could alter our skyline
One of our go to sites for development news - Curbed Chicago - takes a peak at the top 5 development stories to watch in 2017.  Naturally the Sloop gets some attention:
From an architectural standpoint, 2017 could be an especially exciting time for Chicago’s South Loop. The downtown neighborhood is poised to see construction commence on a 76-story skyscraper from architect Rafael Viñoly in the coming weeks. With Helmut Jahn’s glassy 836-foot building at 1000 S. Michigan Avenue on deck, another high-profile ground-breaking very well may be in the cards in 2017. Will some of these projects ever rise over the city’s skyline? We’ll have to wait and see how the rental and condo market continue to perform over the next year.
Also worth reading in the article is the blurb about the activity happening around McCormick Place (we'll spend some time on that later next week).
