rgarri, you are super quick on the draw!!!

Seeing 'Design Study' on the renderings is a lil bit of a 'thing' because that usually means that's not the final design of the project...although I hope I'm wrong because I really like how this looks right now.

Thanks. I should get Shapack to just higher my studio to do the photoreal marketing renderings.

I was just going to write the same thing. Well done!
Although the model for 640 W. Washington needs to updated with the new crappier design...

good height (of course wish it were taller), nice coloring in contrast to the surrounding buildings, but goddamn I wish this alternating panels thing wasn't such a ubiquitous way this city dresses up glass boxes. You don't need to "break up the massing" of a building. It's a building, let it be there!

Well, every building doesn't need to be a large, hulking block. There are plenty of reasons to 'break up the massing', not just aesthetic ones either.

I am super excited to wander around the West Loop now when it gets warm and take all of this in. Having been there last Summer, you could sense the change, but I feel like this Summer will be even crazier.

From the ground the West Loop has its thriving areas, but it’s still very much lacking.

It has a long way to go

I think the SOM-Shapack tower at 1353 Fulton still needs zoning?
They submitted that 6 months ago https://urbanize.city/chicago/post/f...ck-development

Don't really know how to check on the status. Then they released renderings a couple months after that. With soil testing now I just assumed they were good to go. Would they do soil testing without approval?

The west side of this thing is a hulking block ...the south side of it overwhelms the small buildings on Randolph. Sorry, not really liking how it fits that area.

It'll be more in line with its neighbors in a half decade.

It's no more hulking than 167 N. Green to the east across the street.
