CHICAGO—The CBD and its surrounding neighborhoods will see thousands of new apartment units come online over the next two years, and some fear that developers have started too many projects for the market to absorb efficiently. But Steve Fifield of Fifield Cos. tells that has no worries about eventually filling up the company’s giant new apartment project at 727 W. Madison St. in the West Loop. The developers recently secured financing for the 46-story, 492-unit project, and their conservative plan gives them the luxury of time.
