If this was built on the 711 W Fulton parking lot along the highway, I can't imagine anyone complaining.

I asked about plan commission... there was a bit of push back, so hopefully in the next few months.


That's all's I know...
I've always wondered, why are developers so secretive about these things? Does releasing information to the public well before breaking ground hurt them in some way?

Let it happen and settle down, people will be in and out, rentals are fine.

This will happen.

This tower is incredible for everyone who wants fine grain development in the WL.
Look at that block, how it can fill in.

It's crazy how a tower this big can be this far west and we have empirical evidence that it won't stick out like a sore thumb a la University Hall at UIC (not calling UH ugly btw... personally love it, although I know some here don't)

From a second source...

Didn't get the exact height or floor count, but they confirmed what I posted on 10/03.

Was again told this tower will be closer to 500'...

It will be rental...

Related is looking to do 20% affordable on site.

Interesting. So Related may be boosting both this and 725 W. Randolph. That indicates they're still very bullish on this market cycle, especially for the West Loop.

Excellent. And a 1/4 parking ratio is great. I hope this gets off to a fast start.

But how is the project address on Randolph when all the frontage is on Peoria? Is the property an “L” shape, wrapping around the building at NW Randolph/Peoria?

They previously had it at 170 North Peoria. I think the 906 Randolph mention was more Randolph-ish.

Which is why the CTA needs to get moving with more stations.

^ outstanding!!!

Your model keeps getting better and better.

One small constructive criticism: I think you've got 725 W Randolph too tall. Bvic has reported that it's now 550', not 680'.

As long as you're updating the model for 725 W Randolph, you should probably also show the proposed 250' tall office tower that will replace the stupid BofA branch on that block that is now a part of the overall project.

Read all about it on page 12 of the 725 W Randolph thread: https://forum.skyscraperpage.com/sho...230232&page=12

Scroll down to Bvictor's post, #234 and check out the link he posted. The PDF contains dimensioned black and white renderings of both towers.
