Related Midwest Releases White Sox New Stadium Renderings

Related Midwest has released renderings of The 78, a proposed development for a new White Sox stadium and ballpark in the South Loop area. The new ballpark would move the team from their longtime Guaranteed Rate Field in Bridgeport home to a 60-acre site known as “The 78.”

“The development would be a catalyst for the creation of Chicago’s next great neighborhood, create tens of thousands of permanent and construction jobs and bring a state-of-the-art White Sox ballpark to the South Loop riverfront,” said Related Midwest in a statement.

The renderings also offer conceptual ideas for the redevelopment of the surrounding neighborhood, with a reimagined campus, new housing opportunities, and the current Guaranteed Rate Field potentially converted into a soccer stadium. The team’s current lease at the field, which is owned by the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority, expires after the 2029 season.
