Chicago's is undergoing a seemingly inexhaustable multi-family construction boom. Industry professionals in Ohio and Indiana are the beneficiaries of continuing – and in some cases significant -- industrial investment. Stadium construction – or reconstruction – is giving builders a boost to builders in Chicago, Detroit and Notre Dame, Ind. Road and bridge work across the Midwest continues, though the region saw few major start ups last year. Passenger rail, meantime, is gaining momentum in the region. These are among the conclusions to be drawn by ENR Midwest's annual canvassing of the region's largest projects, in this case projects that broke ground during calendar 2014.
ENR Midwest will publish a ranked listing of the Midwests Top Construction Starts in its March 30 edition. To compile the list, we've not only referenced information from Dodge Data & Analytics, but our ongoing coverage of projects in the region.
To ensure the list is as complete as possible, we invite you to submit notable regional projects that broke ground last year to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're particularly interested in projects in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. In addition to the project's name, please indicate its location, construction cost, construction start date (month/year), owner and builder, as well as the project's projected finish date. Please submit the information no later than March 1.
Herewith is an alphabetical listing of the the projects we've compiled to date, along with their locations and owners/developers.
