My money is on "The Grant."

Can't be done. That's what Related's building at 1201 S. Prairie has been called since 2013 (the former One Museum Park West). 113 E. Roosevelt will be directly across Indiana from that one.

I want to say how much I love that ground-level rendering... It's like the bad old days of the 70s along LSD, before developers felt they had to slather everything in cornices and finials! Everything is so rectilinear...

Yes of course. Duh. :doh:

I totally missed that this already had financing. That's Huge sounds like this one is a done deal barring another recession.

It looks ok while it is just 1 tower, but am I the only person who thinks when both are built, the bases together are going to be (for lack of better wording) overwhelming? It is basicly 1 massive podium.

No worries the second tower will almost certainly be redesigned.

Wow, sometimes when I look at renders and pre production drawings and then compare them with the finished product, I feel the drawing was misleading. But, with this one I feel the statement it'll make on the outline of the park will be inline with the drawings/rendering. This will be a statement building! Something I show my friends when they visit Chicago. Very excited if this comes to fruition!

Just thought I'd share some elevations, dated 10/21. Looks like the "crown" is gone and replaced by actual floor space. Height still reads 887'-2"

^ good to see the height remained unchanged.

Was the crown originally meant to be a rooftop deck to anyone's knowledge? If it was simply for decoration I prefer the update with floor space. I didn't like the appearance of the crown much anyway.

May I ask where you got this drawing?

ChickeNES Dec 31, 2015 8:57 AM

^Seconded. I'd love to have it as a poster for my apartment.

Thanks for posting the elevations. Sort of reminds me of a flipped Torre Verre:

^And only 200' shorter.

sentinel Dec 31, 2015 9:20 PM

Skyguy_7, do you have permission to post these working drawings? Renderings are one thing, but I'm always concerned when I see detailed working drawings posted on here..

Skyguy_7 Jan 1, 2016 12:48 AM

^They're from a public FTP site, used to post bid docs for sub-contractors. So, nothing unethical here. I've also got elevation dwgs for the new spire site proposal. Looks like they're keeping with the 2,000' figure.











Jk. Happy new year, all :cheers:

I also didn't realize the second floor was coworking office space (WeWork).

This rendering definitely makes it easier to swallow the ugly pill that was the height reduction on Medium Jahn.

Viñoly really did well on this one
