A global initiative for innovative living. A catalyst for a “New Chicago.” A powerful beginning. Lakeside presents a game-changing urban ideal for not just Chicago’s Southeast lakefront, but for the entire region. With visions for a new, dynamic and diverse community, the site that was once America’s largest steel mill will transform into a compelling model for a green, 21st century lifestyle.
As a joint venture between McCaffery Interests and United States Steel Corporation, the Lakeside idea is centered around a design for living differently. Lakeside’s vision for the nearly 600-acre site includes plans for a connected and accessible community, next generation infrastructure, innovative architecture and lakefront access, all surrounded by a vibrant mix of residential, retail and commercial space, a new high school and a 1,500 slip marina. The project, which will take an estimated 25-45 years to reach completion, will create the ultimate urban experience.
