RIVER NORTH—The former Gino's East flagship restaurant with giant pizza slices outside, vacant since the end of 2013, will be demolished, according to Curbed Chicago. They're making room for a 444-unit rental tower at Wells and Ontario. The site was also home to Planet Hollywood, which closed in 1999. [CCHI]
