  • As it prepares to welcome tenants to the Old Post Office after an $800 million-plus overhaul, developer 601W has lined up another big project just a block away.
  • Farther down the river from the Northern Trust building, developer Related Midwest is hunting for tenants to anchor the 78, its $7 billion vision to turn a vacant 62-acre site between Roosevelt Road and Chinatown into a mixed-use campus.
  • 601W’s deal adds to a recent run of pending transactions for big downtown office buildings after sales were hard to come by during the first half of the year.
