Nice Reilly, I love statements like this.

^ Yeah, because a project that size in the Loop on top of one of the nation's busiest rail terminals needs you to approve the zoning.

SB obviously didn't kiss his ring before going public, like he actually cares what replaces the Amtrak garage. It's not going to matter here since there is no way that Rahm will let him screw over SB and put the Union Statiom redevelopment and an enormous potential property tax stream at risk. He may be able to fuck over other developers if they don't play by the usual rules but not these guys.

So this is just the first of 4 proposals to be announced. The winner will be announced Q1 2017.

Quote:

The four teams of finalists include Chicago-based development firms John Buck, Riverside Investment & Development, Golub and Sterling Bay, acclaimed architecture firms Studio Gang, Pelli Clarke Pelli, Skidmore Owings & Merrill and Gensler, and the world's second-largest commercial real estate brokerage: Jones Lang LaSalle.

Golub's team includes investors Macquarie Corporate Holdings, a subsidiary of Sydney, Australia-based financial services firm Macquarie Capital Group, and an affiliate of Walsh Construction. The architect is Gensler.

The JLL consortium includes John Buck and LaSalle Investment Management, the real estate investment arm of JLL. The design is by the firms of Jeanne Gang and Cesar Pelli.

Information from Amtrak on the Riverside venture, led by former John Buck executive John O'Donnell, does not include investment partners or architects.

The Sterling Bay group's architect is Skidmore Owings & Merrill.

I'd love to see the renderings of the other proposals, I think we all would.

Steely Dan Sep 12, 2016 2:40 PM

now that we have more info about what's going on, i've edited the thread title.

this thread will be the place to discuss all of the competing proposals as they are released.

hopefully we don't have to wait too much longer to seem them.

Agreed :tup:

And seeing as this has to do with a financial benefit to a company dealing with national transportation, I wouldn't mind seeing the mayor stand behind the project and in front of the alderman regarding these RFP's.

(yelling) SPYGUY!!!

2017 is when a developer will be chosen.

Randomguy34 Sep 12, 2016 3:00 PM

I'm curious seeing how much weight JLL plans to throw around with the help of Jeanne Gang and Cesar Pelli.

Pioneer Sep 12, 2016 4:59 PM

I absolutely ***love*** the fact that something of this height and presence will be on the west side of the river.

How about we scrap this plan and build all four proposals surrounding whatever building Reilly lives in to block out the sun at all times. Of course, the only problem with this plot is the children.

How about his voter base finally dies and he goes away.

Just about the only thing I'll miss from this sight is the Dunkin' Donuts at the corner of Canal and Van Buren...at least there's another one about 700' from where this picture was taken on Jackson. :haha:
