The Urban Land Institute, a real estate think tank whose studies helped frame the historic preservation and modernization of Uptown Square, the Wilson Station/Broadway and Wilson area, and Argyle Street, held its Fall 2021 meeting in Uptown and made a bite-size video about the participants' experiences.
In its publication, Urbanland, it said:
"Voted one of TimeOut magazine’s 'Coolest 40 Neighborhoods in the World,' Uptown is a diverse community on the North Side of Chicago. ULI Fall Meeting attendees got the opportunity to tour the neighborhood, which offers spectacular lakeside views, a growing entertainment district, and a thriving food and cultural scene.
Led by members of the local economic development group, the tour saw street art installations and historic theaters, plus a unique adaptive re-use of a mid-century office building into market rate apartments and retail, and ending at Asia on Argyle with an overview of the Asian-American owned businesses that call Uptown home."
