In addition to railroad infrastructure, Chicago’s South Loop historically was home to warehouses, entertainment venues, hotels, printing plants and other manufacturing. Included in this presentation are many little-known images of South State Street and the South Loop, such as built and unbuilt plans to revitalize this area. This presentation will also discuss the completion in 1991 of the Harold Washington Library Center and additional development over the past 30 years.
We hope you are able to join us at this virtual presentation!
Thursday, January 28, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. Central.
There is no charge to attend this virtual event and advance registration is required on the Chaddick website.
