The Department of Planning and Development (DPD) has started a process to establish guidelines that will foster excellence in design within the West Loop. As the West Loop has evolved, the City of Chicago has undertaken planning efforts to encourage the thoughtful re-development of this area.
Public input will be a key step in that process. On April 22, DPD will host a Community Visioning Workshop to solicit public feedback. The meeting will be a highly-interactive, creative experience. Participants will be engaged to help the City identify how design can address challenges and support opportunities in anticipation of the West Loop’s continuing development.
Workshop activities will cover best practices from building design around the world, prioritization of design ideas that are most suited to the West Loop, and a discussion of community amenities that would be most beneficial to local residents.
