SW corner of State and Chicago

Hey guys, I've noticed that the SW portion of State and Chicago, as well as places even slightely west and east of that, are still either vacant or occupied by ugly 1970's-style parking garages.

They seem like prime real estate to me--all of them!

Interestingly, developers are more eager to tear down old buildings and build highrises instead of developing out some of these prime parking lots. I could be wrong, though.

According to the Central Area Plan, Chicago Avenue is supposed to have high density up through LaSalle St, along with ground level commercial. Other than the Bernardin, though, we're not seeing a whole lot.

Does anybody know of any proposals for those sites?
