^ Was there ever anything planned to go in to that corner at the street level, like townhomes? Or is that just open space against the concrete wall?

Anyone think it's weird that the taller tower is the one adjacent to the water? You'd think the smaller one would be to not be totally blocked view-wise.

Turned out great otherwise.

There is a vague plan to put a public school there, but CPS needs to pay for it.

In the meantime Magellan recruited GEMS to open a private school in the neighborhood, but this does not absolve them of the requirement for a public school as well.

^ I sort of wonder if, eventually, some very expensive townhomes will get built there

My guess is Magellan will complete the last phases of LSE (Sites I and O) and will donate the parcel to CPS so they can close out their obligations.

CPS will continue to be broke and will not want to spend the limited funds they do have on building a new school for rich highrise-dwelling kids, so they will eventually sell it back to a developer and net a handsome profit. Eventually, townhomes but with several extra steps.

If Rahm was still mayor he would probably find funds to build that school out of some TIF pot somewhere. Lightfoot doesn't really seem interested in building much of anything in terms of public works or infrastructure, and she doesn't connect the dots of "building a new school" with "attracting and retaining middle-income families downtown".

What's going on with GEMS II. Still stalled?

I'm not aware of any plans/rumors that the public school was supposed to go into that unused corner where the Cirrus sales center resides between the Shoreham and Lancaster buildings, but rather the only place I've ever seen it was as a placeholder in the north/east corner of the park itself. . .

Short, stubby generic filler. At least we get another 500 footer out of this I suppose.

Great shot jc!

Chicago has a knack at making certain 500ft plus buldings look short and stubby... just like lakepoint tower is shortest looking 70 story building you will see

That's because it's literally the shortest 70 floor building on earth. Chicago actually holds the record for shortest X floor building in several size ranges.

Really? That's hilariously unfortunate. I wish the opposite were true

Well, when they finally start building some towers in the Shire those will take our inglorious titles away.
