OUR NEXT GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD

What You Need to Know

The 78 represents the largest undeveloped parcel of land in downtown — at Roosevelt and the River, it is a jewel hidden in plain site. It will be built by men and women from across Chicago, and will forever stand as a future-forward riverfront innovation district that will enrich a city that already has so much to offer.
