Chicago 2025 | JLL

What will Chicago look like in 2025?

​Chicago is one of the most active commercial real estate investment markets in the country today, fueled by healthy demand and excellent value relative to the coasts.  For the past 100 years, the Loop has been the epicenter of both domestic and foreign investment activity, and new development has been focused on the towering Chicago skyline.  

Yet Chicago may change more in the n​ext ten years than it has in the past century, as investors and occupiers look outside the traditional Loop.  When we look to the future of investment and development in Chicago, we see a city that is expanding into new submarkets, drawing new occupiers and attracting a new set of global investors.  We see a city that is redefining the core.



Look beyond the CBD, River North and West Loop to see where Chicago will be in one short decade. Learn about the evolving trends that are driving development in top submarkets such as the Clybourn Corridor, Fulton Market, Goose Island and River West.
