That area looks prime for tons of infill. Will be nice going forward as the area fills up, further elongating the skyscraper mass.

The big open area on the river on the right is the site of the 78. See the thread for that. There's also a few high rises (30 story range) in this view that just started construction in the last few weeks or month.

They need a big one on that Jewel lot.

Yes it needs the Clark/Division Jewel treatment. Also the TJ's lot should be built on and TJ's should reorient itself to the street. I hate having to walk through alley by the dumpster to buy groceries.

Still wish this stadium faced towards the skyline... ugh

I may have missed this earlier in the discussion but assuming that NEMA sign on the building is sales related and temporary?

Mr Downtown May 4, 2019 4:23 AM

^Yes, just paper taped to the inside of the windows.

maru2501 May 4, 2019 2:26 PM

the 78 really needs to fill in from that angle

SIGSEGV May 4, 2019 6:55 PM

DP2 will look ridiculous when the 78 starts filling in. I guess DP1 is already ridiculous although it's not quite as lowrise.

Got some good shots of NEMA last week between a bike ride, a scout visit, and a foggy summit of Essex (link to those shots at the end of this thread)

last couple are insane, the green grass, sky/fog..whoa

Looking at that picture of the crown close up, I wonder what they are going to do with the lighting? If they just light the glass up into a solid cube it's going to look funky. I hope they at least do some fading in and out or changing colors. Somthing.

And if you really want to stretch it a bit further, OMP and 311 W Wacker have a little dance going on the more I look at them.

Also, amazing photos today on all your posts, but I think these ones were my favs. This tower makes me want a few more Vinoly's before he retires.

SIGSEGV May 8, 2019 4:48 AM

OMP actually looks ok from that angle.

bnk May 8, 2019 4:59 AM

I personally ever wanted or asked for its taller twin. But the last photo session as alleviated my fears. Build it up strong. If there are askers than take them.


I was never a fan of dual towers but this one seems legit and might fill more south loop with masses more than the other ones stuck in the dirt.



So if the demand is there than I will accept it and get my special approval.


Its my personal aldermanic prerogative privilege to say so.
