Glad to see the giant NEMA has been removed from the amenity floor. I wonder if it was to block views of construction so that the dramatic wall-to-ceiling lights could be unveiled in grand fashion.

Are they finished painting this thing? The vertical white lines seem to vary quite a bit. Maybe just the angle??

No, there are definitely spots that need to be painted still

I spent last weekend at a townhouse a block from this building (a family member ran the triathlon).

Passed by this building maybe a dozen times, and there were furniture moving trucks idling every single time. Building definitely getting tons of move-ins. I thought about visiting the lobby and rental office, but was carting around a toddler who wanted the playground.

Neighborhood is hard to characterize. You have these gigantic megatowers on Roosevelt, but a block away it's super-quiet residential, with no passing cars, even.

I really love this building, for most people it just seemed to sneak in there, I hear a lot about Vista and this one is totally off the radar.

Any word at all on the the sister building? I would love if they tear into that one quick, but I assumed there will be a few years between them? AKA next cycle if ever.

That neighborhood is the product of some intense NIMBYism, it was probably an accomplishment alone that some highrises even got built east of Michigan Avenue. Everybody there wants townhouses and small condo buildings, etc.

Ultimately, over the course of decades, waves of construction will continue to canyonize Michigan Ave through E. State St, but the neighborhoods east of that will forever remain quiet and residential

Not really, Central Station is a deliberate product of a 1990s urban planning strategy to mix towers with townhomes. Developers liked it because they could diversify their product offerings and keep building different phases even as the demand for rentals, condos, and townhouses fluctuated at different times. The NIMBYism only came after the homes were built, since homeowners always and everywhere are NIMBYs.

The market's a little different now, a lot of near-downtown land is too expensive to build townhomes (except in small quantities as liner units on parking garages) and there's not much demand from Millennials for townhouses or other for-sale products compared to Gen X before them, for various complicated reasons. So the megadevelopments we're seeing now are more highrise and midrise focused, since that's more efficient for the rentals and office space that's in demand.

Does anyone know when they are going to start planting the random trees on every other setback?

Heh you were probably two blocks from my apartment then (I live at Michigan and Roosevelt). East of Michigan is an island of quiet, at least until you get closer to McCormick place.

Most excellent shots, Harry. The last one made my laptop sputter.

What an amazing cycle. Ferris Bueller would need two days off.

Hahaha, that got me to chuckle.

Seriously though, that last shot is really crisp!
