  • The new New Era baseball cap store at 201 South State Street will have its grand opening celebration Saturday, November 12th (see photo below).
  • It is now possible to walk across the Madison Street Bridge once again.  The north side sidewalk is open as Revive Wacker Drive construction moves further south.
  • If you’re green-minded and getting married or planning another big event, Chicagoist points out that Greenhouse Loft (2545 West Diversey Avenue) has been certified LEED Platinum.
  • Curbed Chicago has dug up a revised rendering of the now 52-story Waterview Tower. Strangely, people are worried about the stability of its cantilevered design, even though there are dozens of similar towers around the world that have been standing for decades.
