In a memo to his constituents, 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly conveyed the news that the developer of 525 South Wabash Avenue, e-Terra+, has decided to pull its project from the log flume of City Hall approval.  The project was designed by Minneapolis-based BKV Group.

Mr. Reilly says the north suburban developer wants to revise the plan and try again.

Location: 525 South Wabash Avenue, South Loop
