The part of River North I was comparing to the W Loop is the southern portion Ardecila brought up. River North lost almost all of its warehouses. If River North still had the vibe of Ontario west of Orleans, it’d be a much nicer neighborhoods.

The West Loop generally has a finer grain of urbanism and isn’t dominated by towers on a podium. This is also true of west River North in more recent years. Until the West Loop boom, we lacked a neighborhood of mid-rises. I think it’ll look great once a few taller, slender towers start breaking through, but I don’t want to see it overrun with glassy high rises on top of podiums.
