Olympic Dreams
Kris Hudson


Among those pulling for Chicago on Friday to win the nod to host the 2016 Olympic Games will be developers Fogelson Properties and Forest City Enterprises Inc.

The two are planning a 25-acre mixed-use development along Chicago's lakefront that sits adjacent to possible Olympic venues such as Soldier Field and the McCormick Place convention center. The developers haven't started installing infrastructure for the $4 billion project, called Gateway, which will include 5,000 residential and hotel units, 500,000 square feet of shops and 2 million square feet of office space.

"All of the things that have to happen, including the hotels, would be on a more accelerated basis" if Chicago is named host of the Games, Fogelson Chairman Jerry Fogelson said.

Fogelson and Forest City are seeking tax-increment financing from the city to help cover the cost of Gateway's new infrastructure. City Alderman Robert Fioretti notes that even with Olympic momentum, Gateway would still have to undergo a thorough review.

The Olympics could also salvage Waterveiw, and perhaps even the Spire.

^Maybe. And I'd really like for Park Michigan to be resurrected, but I'd prefer Grant Park Towers 3 and 4 be completed before that one..

Amazing towers. I can't believe this cluster doesn't get more attention.

I can't for the life of me figure out why so many people hate this building's crown.

Because it's quite different from what was shown in all previous renderings, and maybe not as elegant.

They haven't even started sales on the next two towers so 4Q is probably too optimistic.

I like the developments at the southern end of Grant Park. It's now like Central Park with skyscrapers on three sides.
