Related Midwest has released renderings of The 78, a proposed development for a new White Sox stadium and ballpark in the South Loop area. The new ballpark would move the team from their longtime Guaranteed Rate Field in Bridgeport home to a 60-acre site known as “The 78.”
“The development would be a catalyst for the creation of Chicago’s next great neighborhood, create tens of thousands of permanent and construction jobs and bring a state-of-the-art White Sox ballpark to the South Loop riverfront,” said Related Midwest in a statement.
The renderings also offer conceptual ideas for the redevelopment of the surrounding neighborhood, with a reimagined campus, new housing opportunities, and the current Guaranteed Rate Field potentially converted into a soccer stadium. The team’s current lease at the field, which is owned by the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority, expires after the 2029 season.
Connect Industrial Midwest 2024 will take place on March 5, 2024, at Joe’s Live in Rosemont, Illinois. Click here for more information and to register.
