Chicago’s Fulton Market has transformed from a meatpacking district into the city’s fastest growing office submarket. Since 2014 more than $1.5B has fueled construction of 1.47M of Class A Office space, 380,000SF of retail product and 200 hotel keys in Fulton Market, and attracted global tenants such as McDonalds, Dyson, and Mondelez International. JLL estimates that 4.525 MSF of new development is predicted to come online between 2019 and 2022.

This virtual tour takes a closer look at some of the recent developments, and how sustainable features and placemaking strategies were incorporated within them.
