^^^ I am torn between agreeing with Ardcelia that IF McCaffery actually gets these tenants into RC then he will have done his job and also remaining a skeptic until I actually see something open in that building. Developers keep announcing new tenants for the retail white elephants like B37 and RC and yet no construction actually commences on the properties.

So until RC is a bustling retail environment I say "I'll believe it when I see it"...

Yeah, I didn't realize until just now that he was talking about the tracks NORTH of Roosevelt, not the skinny little section by OMP. For some reason I thought that's what he was proposing at first and thought "yeah, good idea, but kinda way too skinny". Now that I got my head out of my ass I agree that this is the best site. I just hope they don't try to do any neo-traditional garbage should we actually steal the museum from SF. Hopefully they can commission someone like Ronan or K+S to create a kickass addition to our museum campus!

The Polk pedestrian experience could certainly be improved. I'm hoping it gets a little better with the AMLI Lofts project, but that won't move the barriers from in front of Folio.

I think the south loop, which I tend to defend just because I live there (Stockholm syndrome maybe), could be an example of how things can go wrong when development is left up to a few megaprojects of huge parcels being traded at once. Compare that to the other neighborhoods which are made mostly of subdivisions of blocks where multiple stakeholders vie for the same streetfront. Those are the neighborhoods that feel like they have character.

Appears they might be doing soil testing at State/Harrison large parking lot? Anyone know of anything?

I wonder if they would still put in that skate park if they build the museum over the metra tracks? Would it need to use the land next to the tracks, or just cover the tracks? I was looking forward to the skate park, but a new museum would be a fair trade off.
