@properties spoke with developers, bankers and related professionals to gauge the local conditions of the construction industry in Chicago
  • 75 percent of developers believe their for-sale construction activity will increase in the next two years
  • The most common concerns for developers are rising construction costs, politics and the local economy
  • @properties conducted research by surveying bankers, developers, architects, general contractors and more

The Chicago skyline is dotted with cranes. Streets are lined with new construction, some actively in the process of being turned into inventory for buyers and renters, and others sitting untouched for months or even years.
