Sorry, couldn't find another image of that drawing off of google.

Oof, Grant Park 3 is one ugly design. Also that one was designed for the site already being built on sooooo....

Anyway, definitely hope they don't revert to that design

It's like a cartoonish One57. Would make more sense as a sculpture in Grant Park than a tower, honestly.

Why are you so sure?

I've heard something similar.

He was referring to Grant 3 proposal, not this tower...

Whoosh, my bad! Completely misread that.

Haha. Why's everyone hating on Three Grant Park? I guess I'm rolling solo on that idea haha. I just think its unique, maybe better fit for Miami but I still like it. That and Canyon Ranch were two of my favorite recent fall-throughs. Except of course for Waldorf, Maderin Oriental, and Waterview.

Has there been any resurgence in the Intercontinental north tower or is that entire idea just dead.

I don't hate the old GP3 design, but I definitely don't think it belongs along the south wall of Grant Park. Put it somewhere in River North instead.

Lol it actually would look good there, like right next to grand plaza. it could be its ugly glass cousin.

^ TBH, anything would look good next to Grand Plaza. That is one of the fugliest developments that has ever graced God's green earth. The design is absolute shit and the Loewenburg should feel like shit for letting that happen.

Notyrview Feb 23, 2018 6:13 PM

Not to get too off topic but grand plaza is probably the ugliest building i've seen in the US, not as ugly as some stuff in Russia, but...

KWillChicago Feb 23, 2018 6:20 PM

Maybe ass ugly exterior but the penthouse views are siiiiiiiiiiiiick!!!

The old GP3 scimitower design is/was straight trash. Thank God that wasn't built.
As for the pair to OGP I hope it is a new design. I like OGP but was never a big fan of it having a 'twin'

Agreed. Twin towers only work in certain situations/locations and this definitely wasn't one of them. Maybe if it was in more central part of the city and a little more spacing in between. Twin towers are great but not necessarily conjoined twins.

Are the phase two entitlements already in place?

Mr Downtown Feb 27, 2018 10:02 PM

Yes.

Looking with binoculars on a very clear day, I still can’t pick out OGP’s tower crane. It just blends into the OMPs.
But Essex stands out very well now.
