Yesterday, reps from developer CIM Group along with Alderman Brendan Reilly and Mayor Rahm Emanuel officially “broke ground” on Block 37’s new apartment tower, which will fit right on top of the existing five story shopping center. By sheer numbers, the 34 story tower will become the largest apartment project in the Loop in decades when it delivers the 690 apartment units planned for the site. The very first signs of construction appeared a couple of weeks ago when some equipment and a lone piece of steel frame appeared on Block 37’s roof. However, it is very clear at this point that something is coming up as the project’s construction moves into full gear.
