The group behind this new development, 16 on Center, is no newbie at creating popular Chicago venues, with Thalia Hall, Revival Food Hall, Lou’s Assembly, Longman and Eagle, The Good Ambler, Space, and more all on their roster. While 16 on Center plans to spruce up and modernize the former salt plant, the historic site will keep its original character and iconic signage. The property also sits along a portion of the river that, until now, hasn’t been used as a public amenity.
