Looks like the Onni project on Grand recently topped off the core.
I assume there's more of the crown left to build--it has that funky superstructure up top.

The Nobu rooftop bar opens today... I know they were doing work on it recently but this is definitely a surprise to me.

This article also has some pictures of the rooftop, seems pretty nice.

New proposal for 601 S. Dearborn (at Harrison). Looks like 14 floors, 462 units (most studios), 5500 sf retail, 25 parking stalls (required by the Transportation Building PD from 1981). Architect is FitzGerald:

^for Fitzgerald, it's not TOO bad... my biggest beef, why can't they take the base all the way south to meet the 3-story neighbor instead of insisting on symmetry and what will be a few awkward balconies butting up against the party wall...

Doesn't look that great, but I like the density. How likely is it that NIMBYs will block this though?

^ Great density and filler, the problem is that Loop/near Loop rents are facing some strong downward forces due to the current job/pandemic situation.

If/when this gets approved, starts construction, etc that might be years off so perhaps by then things will be much stronger. But right now, I don't think we are going to see much new residential construction in the area.

Didn't you suggest to the alderman at some point that a developer should mirror the Transportation Building on that lot, and you got laughed out of the room?

My how the times change...

Um, I'm not sure what you're thinking of. Which alderman? I've always supported new tall narrow buildings in a district of tall narrow buildings. I want them to use the massing, materials, and design vocabulary of Printing House Row, though.

Twenty years ago, as neighbors were making a big stink about a new building adjoining the Trans Bldg to the south, demanding a park, I commented that this parking lot on the east side of Dearborn would actually be the much better place for an urban plaza, since it has the solar exposure, and it could even have one or two levels of subterranean parking beneath, much like San Francisco's Union Square, to help pay for it. But I was never in a setting to suggest that seriously to anyone.

Better to put that blah building there where nobody would notice it than at 601 S State.

601 S Dearborn looks like a great proposal to me. My criteria for great is that it replaces a surface parking lot, it doesn't have a huge parking podium, and it has ground floor retail. For that location, the only thing better would be something 500 ft or taller. This is a perfectly good urban proposal for Printer's Row/South Loop. The amount of griping over good proposals on this board is something else.

My problem is it really doesn't mesh with its neighbors all that well.

Not sure why I thought that.

Anyway, I understand why hand-laid brick is probably not cost-effective for a highrise like this - nor would it look historic, with a flashing at every floor. But there are certainly materials out there that can evoke the colors and textures of brick at a lower cost. Facade depth is a trickier one, but ideally you'd want some relief at the windows as well so the whole thing doesn't look too slick.

And at 462 units it's adding a good amount of density to the area

I can't really tell from the rendering if they plan hand-laid brick, or even if they plan brick, all the way up, on all the walls. Landmarks apparently hasn't yet even had a discussion with the developer.

I fear the large number of studio units will be what concerns the neighbors most, and I think the Transportation Building Condo Assn will have to consent to the amendment of their PD to allow this—indeed to allow anything on this parcel. As I read PD 206, only 104 du's are unused, and almost no FAR is unused.
