Sterling Bay would replace its plan for a rejected 20,000-seat soccer stadium in Lincoln Yards with more parks under revised plans released over the weekend.

The Chicago developer resubmitted its proposal after Alderman Brian Hopkins last week rejected the stadium and a series of other entertainment venues that were to be operated in partnership with Live Nation, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The new plans show a total of 6.2 acres of parkland in the southern portion of the 54-acre, $5 billion project. But the total amount of open space in the development would remain roughly the same as in previous proposals due to the elimination of outdoor plazas around the former stadium.

Lincoln Yards will get its first formal city review before the Chicago Plan Commission on Jan. 24.

The overall project could include more than 12 million square feet of residential, office and recreational space, including some 3,500 residential units. [Chicago Tribune] — John O’Brien
