    Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) Commissioner Jamie Rhee (pictured left) manages one of the world’s busiest airport systems, comprised of O’Hare and Midway International Airports, which serves more than 100 million passengers each year and propels Chicago as a global leader for air cargo activity. Chicago’s airports are also among the most connected in the world, serving more than 260 locations via 50 different commercial carriers to 46 countries worldwide.

    Join FWC as we welcome Jamie Rhee, Commissioner of the Chicago Department of Aviation, who will present an update to FWC members on the O'Hare Modernization Project.   

    Representatives from Power Construction will also be on hand to present One Chicago Square (artist rendering, pictured left), a new magnificent amenity for River North by JDL Development. With a radius spanning an entire city block, One Chicago Square will be the 6th largest building in the City of Chicago. Located directly across the street from Holy Name Cathedral, the site is generally bound by West Chicago Avenue, West Superior Street, North State Street and North Dearborn Street. The development is demarcated by two residential towers that are connected with a 9-story Podium with 4 additional levels of underground parking (approximately 820,000 GSF).  The 9-story base is comprised of retail, office, event space and residential units that wrap the parking garage. Additionally, a large setback on State Street allows for an urban park. 

    Come to our May meeting and learn about these exciting projects.  A buffet lunch will be served.
