Hello architects-
Can someone please share a dwg file of downtown Chicago with me? I am a thesis student in Boston at the BAC and am seeking a 3D sketchup massing or 2d line drawing of the streets and building footprints around Michigan Ave/Columbus Ave. and the river. I've been tracing a map in AutoCAD line by line and its driving me nuts. I know many firms have developed projects downtown and was hoping someone would be kind enough to send me a decent dwg or other CAD format to use as a base map. This is in no way going to be used for commercial purposes, just for my own academic investigation. E-mail me if you want to talk in person about it.
Thanks.

PS. rumor has it there is a fantastic 3D sketchup model of Chicago produced by SOM floating around out there. If anyone has access to this data can you please share it with me. Much love in advance.

I just sent you a 3D CAD file that should be easy for you to export to whatever program you're using. If the file is too large let me know if you have a gmail account or something else I can upload it to.

Lucky for you it's such a nice day here in New York, clear blue skies and more importantly just got a pain in the ass project out the door an hour ago and I'm in a great mood now. Enjoy.

Hello there,

My studio this semester at Virginia Tech has our site in the Financial District of Chicago off of Congress Parkway. Would it be possible to have these files as well. Any dwg or 3ds files would be great and/ or diagrams. Thank you.

Hi, I am an architecture student as well and would like the Chicago CAD file, too. Specifially one that has the Uptown/Edgewater neighborhoods (northern Chicago) on it. If anyone has this please send it to me!

Thanks!

Hi,  

Would anyone be able to pass the Chicago CAD file to me as well?  Specifically looking for the area surrounding Grant Park with a focus on the South End.

Thanks.

Hi! I would love to have a 3d model of downtown to help as well - I've been trying to build a downtown city model in sketchup using building maker but find it frustrating as lack of detail... thanks! jeremynye@gmail.com

Hello, I'm doing my thesis based in Chicago, I haven't found a decent plan or model of it that is easily obtainable. I'd greatly appreciate if someone could provide me both a CAD plan and 3D model! Or one or the other, but I really need something. Thanks so much. cjp5214@gmail.com

Wondering if this post is still alive, If so, any site/massing files anyone has of Chicago, particularly South Side, would be most appreciated

Studio project involves a site located at E 63rd St and S Cottage Grove Ave (Where green line terminates) (41.782641,-87.606103).

If anyone can help an arch student out, it would be much appreciated. I emailed a contact from CMAP and I will continue to follow that lead aswell.

If anyone wants any further information on the project or to send files please email me at elliott302@gmail.com

Thanks

Lazy students

Yeah. Lazy. You all should be taking time out of your day (and night) that could be used to design your project to scour the internet for a cad file (or better yet build one from scratch to learn your place, you future worthless intern peons) instead of asking on a website. You might save a day or two if it pans out, you lazy bastards.
