Thanks for the photos, BVic! Just over a third of the way up and it's already such a presence on the south end of Grant Park!

When its complete, that huge injection of residents (~800 units) is really going to add to the liveliness of Michigan Ave south of Roosevelt, and the neighborhood as a whole.

Let's hope this gives that area a big bar and restaurant boom. Not much night life or good bars around there.

The shorter tower crane used for the garage was removed this weekend.

There is a decent selection on Wabash, but I agree we could use more options in that neighborhood. The influx of residents is sure to attract further commercial investment. It would be nice to tie in with the Motor Row/DePaul Arena area to create one continuous nightlife district along the Michigan/Wabash corridor. Lot of brewers on that corridor as well (Baderbrau, Vice District, Motor Row Brewing, etc.) between 14th and 25th. Would be neat to have a south side version of Malt Row.

1201 S Prairie photos of One Grant Park
 
Does anyone have any pictures from the units in 1201 S Prairie? I would like to see how this building is blocking the views. If you could, please post. Thanks

1201 is the greenish building in the center - across the street from 1200 S Prarie (the real address of "One Grant Park"). Can't see how this would block any view except those on the SW corner of the building, who had only a sliver of a view before.

Now the folks in the red building to the South - particularly those on the NE corner - they just got hosed.

One Grant Park would be 1200 S. Indiana, not 1200 S. Prairie. Not sure if they'll use that, or 113 E. Roosevelt.

Purchasers in the various Central Station buildings (maybe not all buildings) were given promises at purchase about what view angles—primarily those over the park—would never be blocked. Purchasers in The Grant (née One Museum Park West) always knew a building would be built west of them.

thank you. (Google places it - and it is - at what SHOULD be 1201 S Indiana, but you know, real estate agents)

Who could promise "view angles" ?

The entire western view will be blocked. I was hoping someone could take some pictures inside 1201 Prairie facing west. I want pictures from those units of the Grant. Thank you.

But the western view is NOT of the park - not even a parking lot - was just a vacant lot.

So what is the enforcement; The developer-seller gives you your money back, or does this deed restrict what is done on other peoples - or public - property ?

Technically four:

One Grant Park, Essex on the Park, the Homewood Suites, and Paragon (you can sort of almost barely see it in the shot)
