The River North neighborhood has gone from industrial corridor to hipster magnet, full of bars, restaurants and apartment buildings. And this week, developers of the area released a rendering of what the neighborhood will look like in four years (see the image above), when at least fifteen projects currently in the works are complete or will be near completion.

The WTC will be located along 38th Street between Walnut and Blake streets. According to its website, OZ "will develop the master plan for the extensive campus, to be anchored by a flagship hotel. The development will also include approximately 250,000 square feet of best-in-class office space for both large and small businesses from around the world, an international business and conference center, a flex-work environment, an array of multicultural restaurants, diverse retail, an art gallery and a parking structure."

The DriveTrain will consist of a hotel, condos, office space and retail and restaurant locations.

The highlights of this expansive project include a boutique hotel, 220 residential condominiums, an incubator office space, and plenty of retail and restaurant locations on the ground floor."
