what we're getting: "oh........ :uhh:" <sad trombone sound>

Not sure if this was discussed before, but it seems that there are 4 more floors on the newer/current version of this building. Seems that this one should be topped out pretty soon if not already.

Thanks for all these beautiful pictures SolarWind!

Yeah I just don't get why they got rid of the low-rise townhome component on the north end. Parking podium would be digestible if they stuck with that plan. Unless the plan was for a separate structure all along and they're still going to add a low rise along the park space.

Fingers crossed that's the case... though I doubt it.

Reed is T/O, reported YIMBY:

Apparently it is 447 ft, which does not match any of the heights in this thread's title "600FT - 500FT(X2) - 380FT(X2) - 242FT(X2) - 300FT". And since it does not have a twin, I am guessing this height was either reduced from 600 ft, or increased from 300ft?

If I am interpreting the images correctly - and I may not be - it appears the podium extends into the area where the liner units would have been

Really the whole thread should be dissolved after the REED completes construction.. A lot has changed since this was announced. It has been broken down into two separate developments and the placeholder designs are obsolete. Updated massing models now show two instead of three remaining towers on this plot and both appear to be less than 500'

Or maybe change the title and move it into general developments for park and riverwalk updates

Yeah, from the pictures on YIMBY Chicago today, I lost all hope of there being room for liner units. :surrender:

Yea, it was established a few pages back the the title was incorrect.

Where did you get the 447 figure? How many towers will accompany this one?

After clicking "Southbank", I was led to this page:

Hopefully the 598 footer will still happen.

CTBUH has much less info on Riverline:

That sign is going to be featured in many a skateboarding video I imagine

This is on the top of a school. I'm sure the parents love it and the kids are indifferent. I know it's not Chicago's style to be cutesy, but there are worse things.

I have a better idea....

"Make No Small Plans"

I would throw my kid into any school that would put that in big letters on top. Just my 2 cents.......

The reality is that it is chicago's style to be cutesy, given the apparent love for Matthew Hoffman: http://www.heyitsmatthew.com/. Somebody should put up a sign in cursive saying "insipid".
