City planning officials are scheduled on Thursday to review plans for the first phase of construction at the 55-acre Lincoln Yards site, two years after the City Council blessed the overall project amid a storm of controversy and criticism.
Representatives of developer Sterling Bay will make a “courtesy presentation" to the Chicago Plan Commission during a 10 p.m. meeting on their plan to build a 9-story office building on “Parcel G.1” of the campus, but the commission will not take a vote on the matter. Department of Planning and Development staffers will decide whether to approve the sub-site plan after taking “comments from plan commissioners and the public into consideration,” a department spokesperson wrote in an email on Tuesday.
