They haven't submitted a formal proposal for Parcel I quite yet, correct?

I believe Parcl I is zoned and ready to go, pending permits. The developer said it won't start work on I until the JKL towers are finished.

Like completely finished, or topped out and mainly full of glass but still doing interior buildout?

Started shooting some updates for bKL. Stopped by the Pier yesterday AM before they close for the season after Monday. Wild times.

Is that pool deck really just 1 story above LSD?

That'll be enjoyable in the summer... listening to loud motorcycles and inhaling fumes all day, yikes.

Sure, because the roof deck at Lake Point Tower is such a miserable failure...

People don't care about the noise so much and the fumes are not a huge issue with the breeze off the lake.

It also seems they have installed a glass sound-deadening wall which should muffle the noise somewhat.

Yea it'd be better at least 10 or so stories up, perhaps there will be a large glass screen? It would help but not be perfect.

From the renderings is looks like the final tallest tower (Parcel I) would take after the blue facade and not copper, kind of a relief. The copper is okay but I don't think it would look as good on a 1K foot building.

Really?...i think the copper looks great and would look great on 1000k building too....how many freakin blue shades of skyscrapers does this city need!?..nothing wrong with some variety in colors...took long enough

Could look pretty cool when the east side gets hit with a lot of sun early in the day.

The lake front path is pretty busy - and there is also a lot of people on LSD at that time of the morning.

Maybe I've lost my sense of time from being in quarantine, but I feel like these towers and One Chicago are finishing much faster than other skyscrapers in the city

pianowizard Oct 10, 2020 8:30 PM

^ Cirrus & Cascade broke ground in late Aug 2019, so they have indeed been rising fast. It's great that the pandemic did not slow them down.

On a side note, but man, that's a big parking deck.

^ There is so much activity on the site for Parcel I. Perhaps construction is imminent? Cirrus & Cascade will top out soon.

So that isn't staging?

I am skeptical that Parcel I would suddenly be starting

It's absolutely staging. They will start the next tower when they no longer need that space to expedite the current projects and no sooner...

Right, that could be within the next year though hopefully. Cirrus & Cascade will be done before we know it.

This is assuming that starting the big one right after is still the plan...

I can just hear Tom Kerwin saying "Nick, I really want this vantage ... but make sure you make One Bennett Park look stumpy and inconsequential."

harryc Oct 21, 2020 9:53 PM

^^ That is one WIDE angle lens.

Thankfully, the close proximity to Cascade and a wide-angle makes that an easy request to accomplish :haha:

There's A LOT of in-camera & post-processing perspective work going on here.

First, I shot it with my tilt-shift lens panned up. I can rotate the front element of the lens 45° then shift. In effect, I can move the lens in an "X" pattern without having to actually move the camera, so the stitch is seamless. Then, of course, I had to digitally perspective control the panorama to get nice and straight vertical lines.

I knew that these towers would be beautiful but they are BEAUUUTIFUL. Befitting of the lakefront and bodes well for Parcel I! :tup:

Agree, and that copper is :cheers:. Site I is one of my favorite designs of this cycle, hoping it gets built like the renders.

Yeah, assuming Site I is built, it'll hide Cascade quite a bit, blocking some of the views. Might as well build the taller one with unobstructed views too ommand more cash. At least from inside LSE, you make be able to see them sort of spiral/stack-up from short to tall.

Yes! Really digging the copper. Need to time my next visit to get more light onto the S/W sided of Cascade, but then you don't get that nice AM sun on the East facade. Good problem to have I guess.

Unfortunately, these two little filler turds would fit better in Greek town along the Kennedy Expy instead of such a prominent location.

Gloomy Chicago 10-26-20 (69) by BartShore, on Flickr


Quick question on a side note, but what are they doing to the South of the Chicago Spire hole? Past the overhead highway closest to the water?

An environmentally remediated DuSable Park which should be completed when 400 N Lakeshore goes up. Also the notorious Lakefront trail project (along LSD)

EDIT: DuSable Park is east of the hole. But I think what you're referring to the Lakefront trail project which is south-east.

chris08876 Nov 3, 2020 2:31 AM

Thanks Fvn. :cheers:

Hopefully they can finish it soon. Such an eyesore. And finally remove that hole in the ground too.

The square area is DuSable park - the white windy strip is the new bikeway - the latest section is the gray part along the closer side of the bridge.

This is not Site I - it's on the SW side of the site. My bet is on Site I will break ground next year.

Yep, same stuff used for Maggie Daley Park
