Sterling Bay Falls Short In Attempt To Build Community Support For Lincoln Yards

Written by Bisnow/Brian Rogal

Sterling Bay's development team faced a full house Nov. 29.

The developers had already publicized their revised outline for the former Finkl Steelsite along the Chicago River, first unveiled in July, so there were no real surprises. Sterling Bay boosted the amount of park space, removed two buildings from the proposal, and cut down the high-rises from 800 feet to a maximum of 650 feet.
