O yes...

Remember that rather blocky (Destefano?) building proposed for this site? Another case where the bust may have actually led to a better result. Can't wait to see the actual renderings and details of this Jahn supertall (finally he gets one in his hometown). Also interesting to see the mix of condos/apartments.

I don't believe what is happening to the South Loop this past week. This has to be a dream. Are we in The Matrix?

Wow. It appears as if the entire top of the tower is slightly rotated... AND cantilevered over the building to the south...

Jibba Sep 23, 2015 10:42 PM

Damn, SUPER excited about this.

Domer2019 Sep 23, 2015 10:51 PM

Has this been officially announced to any degree yet? Was it mentioned at the meeting?

munchymunch Sep 23, 2015 10:54 PM

Dear all other developers stop proposing so the ones coming now can be built. :tup:

Wow any links [info] on this one?

If the Calatrava and multiple failed projects of the last decade taught us anything it's I'LL BELIEVE WHEN I SEE IT. :uhh:

Just saying. I mean, 1,000 feet... in the South Loop? No way. I foresee drastic scaling back on this one after massive opposition.

Far less units, 600 feet, and more parking. Mark my words.

^^^At least it has apartments all the way down to the second floor on Michigan. If they are going for the high end residential market, most of those people will expect at least one parking space. That's probably just reality.

OMG!! Totally missed this one!!!! What the what??!!

Christmas came early

wrab Sep 23, 2015 11:24 PM

Oh, sweet!

rlw777 Sep 23, 2015 11:31 PM

Can't wait for the renders on this one

UrbanLibertine Sep 24, 2015 12:25 AM

This is crazy. Who the hell are all these people moving into these thousands of new units in all these new buildings? Seriously? I love new skyscrapers as much as the next guy but I get worried about the surplus on the market (not necessarily with the starchitect skyscrapers, but with the mediocre midrises).

Glad to see that the entire Michigan Ave facade is activated with residences, at first glance of the silhouette that was my biggest concern. I am also pleased to see that it is not a block-through design, leaving the door open for a building to go up on Wabash to completely obscure the huge 130' parking podium.

Quite the times for the South Loop. Ralph Johnson at River South, Vinoly at 1200 S Mich, Jahn at 1000 S Mich, B+L at 1300 S Wabash, and a few big SCB turds floating around.

All times are GMT. The time now is 6:51 AM.
