CHICAGO — The city's Plan Commission voted to approve the ambitious and controversial Lincoln Yards development plan.

It will now move to the whole city council for a vote.

The 55-acre development calls for building 6,000 residential units.

Plans to build a soccer stadium and concert venue were scrapped.

Ald. Brian Hopkins, whose 2nd Ward encompasses the proposed development, supports the changes.

Some critics are concerned the city is trying to ram through the proposal without giving the public enough time to look at the latest version of the plan.
