18 buildings, new riverfront park planned for Chicago Tribune printing plant site

As the City continues to work behind the scenes to lure Amazon’s lucrative second headquarters to the Windy City, a third potential Chicago site for the tech campus has officially broken cover. Today, Tribune Media has released new renderings and details regarding its plan to redevelop its 30-acre Freedom Center printing plant property on the west bank of the Chicago River’s North Branch between Grand and Chicago avenues.

Previously understood to be in play for redevelopment, the valuable riverfront parcel flanks both sides of the Ohio Street bridge at the intersection of the neighborhoods of River North, River West, Goose Island, and Fulton River District. The mega-project would take advantage of revised zoning rules for the North Branch that have opened the area to new kinds of mixed, non-industrial use.

More weirdly shaped glass boxes, never seen that before really unique! I hope they change the design no offense so it looks more Chicagoan. Can't tell whether if I'm in New York, or Dubai?
