My City Filled In A Freeway and Revitalized Our Downtown

It took years to make it happen but once it did, everything changed

A call for filling in The Loop

The rise of downtown residential living

Meanwhile the dump trucks were rolling in and the bridges being taken down

In about a square mile of center city we have added thousands of apartments and lofts

Reconnecting all the residents, not just the affluent white ones

The job is half done
