That parcel is prime real estate, if the current developer can't do anything with it I'm sure another will step in soon.

I love these mid-block infill, where the existing building at the corner creates a nice big setback from the street. It will create very nice sidewalk experiences.

Agreed. May Randolph St never change. I love towering, shadow producing, NIMBY-conniption-fit-inducing skyscrapers and canyon-ized city streets, but neighborhoods that are chock full of restaurants and sidewalk cafes benefit from this mid block set up, I dig it. Chicago has both. I love this city.

It's so crazy.... In any part of downtown, this building wouldn't stand out. But here, it looks massive.

Well, location location location right?! This thing is going to have great views for a while. One of my favorite projects going up in the city right now.

Interesting, considering that some construction "insiders" on here kept implying the GC lacked the chops to pull this off.

That's right I forgot about that. Should be quick since most if not all of the floor plates are the same/square and relatively small.

The city should buy that parking lot for a park. Respect the step down.

Edit: Nevermind, I didn't realize that was the 711 W FM lot along the Kennedy. Too noisy for a park, I though this was in the interior.

Unfortunately I've seen some massive destructive tags like this popping up around the city in unusual places. Often 20 ft+ high letters, hard to reach places and messy letters. Specifically the empty Office Depot on Grand/Orleans but they've already power washed most of it off - though it still looks like crap.

Is this drone grafitti?

It's really a shame.

It’s probably a paint sprayer. You can see how it gets messier and more spread out at the top so it’s being sprayed from below. That’s usually what it looks like.

^^ I believe they use fire extinguishers too. If you look up "fire extinguisher graffiti" on Youtube, you can see how people do it.

Yes the fire estinguisher seems like it. Definitely not drones ha.
