Chicago's old Main Post Office may finally be coming back to life.
On Thursday, the city's Plan Commission approved a redevelopment project for the building. The Chicago Sun-Times reports agents for the British investor behind the project say work could begin as early as September if the City Council approves it.
The plan would turn the massive building that thousands of commuters drive beneath on their way in and out of the city into the site of as many as 2,150 residential units. It would create retail space nearly as massive as Water Tower Place, Chicago's famous shopping center. Parking is included in the plan.
Architect Joseph Antunovich says the first phase would include a 1,000-foot tall tower that could take as long as a decade to complete.
