The intersection of Clark and 15th streets will form a gateway to The 78. Note how 15th dips under the enclosed Metra tracks.

The U of I’s Discovery Partners Institute will anchor the development’s “education hub.”

The 78’s building are oriented around the Crescent Park that follows the former bend of the Chicago River.

So it looks like they’ve begun to do a little work but nothing too dramatic?

What are you rendering on? Zen 3 threadripper? What’s your ram? Etc. Also good stuff as always. Pretty sure there was a whole thing about how this would interact with the traffic on a particular street.

I use Unreal Engine 4 so everything is in real-time. Still image needs no rendering and is as easy as taking a screenshot. My RTX 8000 graphics cards helps out quite a bit as well lol.
