Most Popular Friday Photos Articles

Readers love downtown projects, and one still unconfirmed HQ move tops the list.

From small apartment buildings to a new corporate headquarters, Friday Photos covered it all this year.

One interesting takeaway? Five of the 10 articles capture projects located within three blocks of the busy intersection of N. Water St. and E. Wisconsin Ave. Add three more blocks to that radius and that number rises to eight. Real estate is all about location, location, location, and apparently Friday Photos is, too.
