THE LOOP— Earlier this week, to great fanfare, Mayor Emanuel unveiled conceptual designs for a six-block extension of downtown's Riverwalk. The segment, organized by activity nodes, will stretch westward from State & Lake around to the South Branch. The unfunded plan has a projected cost of $100M.

KENWOOD— A pair of side-by-side Frank Lloyd Wright "bootleg" homes listed this week for $1.48M apiece. Built as Wright was skirting his contractual obligations to Adler & Sullivan, these 1892 houses are quite different from one another. Come see the variation and the genesis of Wright's Prairie trademarks.

GREEKTOWN— Don't fear the skyscraper curtain, it'll soon be a fact of life for Greektown and West Loop residents. A huge step in that direction took place a couple days ago when 46-story, 492-unit One South Halsted was approved by the city's zoning committee. Revisit the renderings and the debate at Curbed!

FLOSSMOOR— One of the best Keck + Keck residences we've ever laid eyes on hit the market in May in the South suburbs. Dennis Rodkin recently shot a video of the place, now asking $425K, and we followed suit with a photo gallery and listing summary. It deserves the attention.
