The Next Big Plan
The 78 is Related Midwest’s visionary new neighborhood in downtown Chicago. Spanning a massive 62-acre site, the development is envisioned as a diverse mixed-use precinct to live, work, play, learn, and discover.
Along the riverfront we envisioned buildings that programmatically relate to each other. These connections shape public space and are programmed with diverse activities to bring tenants, neighbors, and Chicagoans together. The buildings are a series of individual shapes that together visually surprise the viewer.
