SOUTH LOOP— As part of the "Curbed Futures" series, we interview young architect Eric Cheng on his senior thesis "Cemetery for the Unclaimed", which grants dignity to the city's daily dozens of unspoken-for deceased.

LAKEVIEW—Come scope this contempo rental in the Ravenswood Corridor. The stats: 2BR, 2BA, 2,200 sq. ft., with 16-foot ceilings and exposed brick and timber. The building steps up to a rear deck, set in the tree tops. Going for $3,500/mo., with serious early interest.

FULTON RIVER DISTRICT— It's full steam ahead for K Station's swan song: a 33-story tower at 365 N Halsted. As usual, Curbed has the renderings and construction shots you need.

KENWOOD— On the Market: A misplaced contemporary limestone for $799K. In this piece, we do a little architectural policing, because when a crime is committed to the block, it cannot be ignored.
