Despite objections from many local property owners and residents, the city of Chicago is considering landmark status for the Fulton-Randolph Market District along the west bank of the Chicago River.
Business owners in the city’s trendy Fulton Market area were urging the Emanuel administration to drop plans to designate the district as a city landmark, and turn the wholesale market into a tourist-oriented farmers market like Pike Place in Seattle.
Google Inc. said Thursday it will relocate its Chicago office to the Fulton Market district in the West Loop.
It was the hottest ticket in town last night – the opening of a new restaurant by acclaimed Chicago chef Grant Achatz.
Red Light, a mainstay pan-Asian restaurant in the West Loop, is for sale after having suffered a 35 to 40-percent sales decline since the recession began.
