TIL! Thanks.

Construction sites at night are my favorite when they have the flood lights on. Will always remember the Vista crew drilling caisson holes under those lights deep into the evening, snow whipping around, 20 degree wether, etc. Badass.

That site is a monster.

Nice shots Solar.

Bonsai Tree Jan 8, 2020 4:01 AM

So I have a question about the current site. What is with the columns going up around the area for building I? There are clearly a few columns being constructed there as can be seen in a few of Solar's photos. Also, if you look on the Vista webcam (https://www.vistatowerchicago.com/webcam/), columns can clearly be seen in the lower left hand corner of View 3. I know that building I is not schedule to be built now, nor has it received permits but what is with the column work on that site? :shrug:

Here's another view.

KWillChicago Jan 8, 2020 6:08 AM

Thats got to be just some combined park space where the the base floors will eventuall combine. Kind of like WPE is built out on the river waiting on WPS's riverwalk to be built.

How many parking spaces are there in LSE?

lol i was going to add them all up instead of hitting with some snarky comment like "enough".. but too much work. here's a map of the garages that are partnered with spothero. some are missing. add vista, cirrus, and cascade.

https://i.imgur.com/h7nA0jh.png

in my fantasy LSE the cta has an electric shuttle to state/lake & clark/lake utilizing lower randolph.. turn that gated lot behind the east elevator into an awesome bus hub serving entire lakeshore east. lines 4, 6, 20, 60, etc. send some of the packed express busses straight east into the bus only lanes of lakeshore drive... ok sorry getting carried away with my transit fantasy.

theres enough parking.

Such a cool project to watch. A couple questions. Is the far south of this going to be an alley for loading docks and what not? Not sure why they arent meeting the wall. Also is the pool deck really going to be level with lsd? I thought I saw that in a picture. I think it would be cool but im not paying the big bucks to live there.

Bonsai Tree Jan 19, 2020 2:43 AM

The far south "alley" is an at-grade walkway from LSE park to the lakefront (it crosses beneath LSD). The pool deck is probably about 20 feet above LSD but still close enough that I'd be uncomfortable hanging out there.

God damn! That shot plus 1000M and grant park 4. Vista almost looks fake in that shot.

Grant park 4?

Also if Parcel I were built, that would also appear in the shot I believe

The latest renderings show that those walls will remain uncovered, as the stairs will drop down there.
Once this is all done, they need to paint a mural, or something. Anything.

Chi-Sky21 Jan 28, 2020 2:38 PM

Redo the bird mural 1000M is covering up.. i kinda liked that one

That's currently an alley (Harbor Service Dr), which links the Park at LE with some of the parking garages I believe.

^So there's going to be an entrance from lower wacker as well? Is that temporary until the corner lot gets developed?

Zapatan Feb 10, 2020 2:46 AM

Nice pictures, what a massive site. Am I correct in assuming the taller 950+ Parcel I tower would rise right next to these? If that thing ever gets built it would be epic :yes:

Not sure what you were expecting from relatively short towers in LSE. Look at what's around them.

EDIT: I should also point out that the landscape architecture on these is pretty fantastic and will really improve connectivity with the lakefront.

Considering residents of these two buildings will have some incredible views of both the lake and the surrounding neighborhoods, as well as envious amenities and high-end interiors, and as gandalf612 mentioned, new, gorgeous landscape features as well as access to the Lakeshore East park, doubtful the exterior facade design is of critical significance for potential residents of these two addresses. Average layfolk who happen to have a lot of money are not as obsessed with exterior appearances, compared to us design nerds. Maybe not ALL people who have lots of money and can afford to live here, but I think in this situation, location, location, location.
