The climbing core has been jumped above the adjacent East-West University building to the south. I believe the top of the core is about the elevation of the winter garden right now. This is starting to really take off.

This may or may not have been answered but are they going to upgrade the Essex Hotel?

SteelMonkey Sep 26, 2017 6:46 PM

Yes it will. Some excerpts from previous articles

The soon-to-be-landmarked midcentury modern hotel will be expanded from 254 to 271 guest rooms and repositioned as the ‘Hotel Essex.’ Shared amenities include a new chef-driven three-meal restaurant, a bi-level sky bar named ‘SX,’ and a multi-story indoor winter garden with pool and spa.

The hotel renovations, slated to start in late 2018, will be completed at the same time as the Essex on the Park apartment building opens.

Nice shot Bvic! The top framed floor in that photo was poured yesterday. It is the 7th floor which is the winter garden and amenities. Now they will start the high shoring for the slab above the winter garden (floor 11) and simultaneously floors 8, 9, and 10 on the west side of the building. The building steps in above this floor, so it will really take off moving into winter.

Were it not for the height caps thanks to the South Michigan historic district, that lot could feature something like this:

I believe that lot is owned by the Pritzker's.

Another article on that project says it actually died before the great recession (in 2005). Not sure which architecture blog is correct.. For those interested, the one I found includes a good bit of the site's history:
