"Obtaining all of the information needed to compel investors would have been impossible without Chicago Cityscape: GIS is too esoteric and idiosyncratic, and frankly intimidating to a non-initiated viewer. Having a simple, clean, and clear source of primary information about the built environment and local context made this entire project possible. Paid for itself a thousand times over."

Chicago adopts a new building code
by Steven Vance
On Wednesday, April 10, 2019, Chicago adopted the first comprehensive update of its building code in over 70 years. The update modernizes the Chicago Building Code and incorporates parts of the International Building Code (IBC), which architects from around the country and around the world are more familiar with.
The code allows for more flexible building systems, giving architects and contractors more options on how to construct buildings. Aligning it with model codes also makes it easier to update the Chicago Building Code when those model codes are updated.
