The building that would help the gap is something right on 290 or Congress, preferably on the South side of the street. Something like the Old Post Office tower.

What do we think the Odds of 601 cos moving on a proposal there at some point in the near future? Given how the OPO is leasing I can't help but think they are considering how they will use up all that FAR Davies got approved...

Honestly, given the trajectory of OPO, I think that might be our dark horse next supertall proposal. Could see them doing a 1,000-1,200' tower there.

Nice bro , very nice

Is 1000M really going to flare out that much?

The parking lot is closing on September 30, paving the way for demo and bananarama.

No

The building is not straight on in the rendering above. What you are seeing is the added width from the north facing wall.

That gap between Van Buren and Roosevelt is easily my biggest gripe with our skyline.

Guessing this may have been addressed/discussed (I looked back a few pages but not all 30+ of the thread), but do we know if there will be space reserved at basement level to eventually continue the existing ped tunnel from Union Station to the transit center further southward to connect to the Old Post Office and Blue Line? I would like to assume this as a given but figured better to ask...

Just walked by site - demo of garage already underway! Pretty quick given that garage just closed a week ago. Sidewalks on Canal and Clinton sides (E&W) now blocked with barriers. Heneghan crew has a couple big rigs actively chewing into West side of garage; already making progress; lots of noise, etc. Sorry no pix.

Yeah, I walk by this site every day. They've been going at it for a week now, with the parking garage having closed on September 30. It'll be fun to watch this grow bit by bit during my commute.

Between the Tribune Annex building, 300 Michigan, and the US parking garage this has to be the best two weeks for demolition contractors in Chicago.

I think that is typical - Demo started fast after the lot closed prior at One Chicago Square as well. Based on this and a couple other lots my observation have been when the parking lot closes it's game on! :)

I love parking garages getting ripped down. Almost as much as I love surface parking lots get ripped up.

I need to start a daily photo of this thing rising. I am so excited for this one going up right outside my desk.

Daily photos could be put together in a video or a gif. Do it! :cheers:

And to think that the last high rise proposal for this site (1990s?) had put the tower on the site of the bus transit center and was adding several floors to this parking garage. Positive change in attitudes on parking.

There is a construction cam for this one (320 S. Canal St.) at https://app.oxblue.com/open/clarkcon...erconstruction.

Looks like the cam got knocked out of position in the last 24hrs.
