I wish they could've gone with SOM's design. That was a really cool looking building.

Have they truly cornered the market on designing an attractive mix of efficiency, tech & amenities? No, of course not. Salesmanship is definitely a driver.

Yeah i'm disappointed, but i do love the riverwalk design. Sloping tiers work so well along the river.

Not mutually exclusive. In cre, it’s still a not insignificant amount of sizzle that plays a part in decision-making....incrementally shifting to more steak over time, thankfully, however in this industry relationships and schmoozing and slick salesmanship still play an outsized role, relative to the superior merits of data-driven decisions and strategy.

Exhibit A would be the continuing wild overcompensation of commercial brokers.

^ You guessed it.

BMO Harris is in talks to anchor the new office tower. Just in from the Tribune:

Quote:
BMO Harris Bank is in advanced negotiations to anchor a new office tower in Union Station’s $1 billion-plus redevelopment, a project that’s been revamped after the original plan met with widespread criticism.

The exact size of the lease for the bank’s new U.S. headquarters could not be determined, but it’s believed to be about 500,000 square feet in a new office tower that’s proposed just south of the railway station, sources said. That amount of space could accommodate thousands of workers.

If finalized, BMO Harris’ lease would be large enough to kick off construction of yet another a major new office building downtown. The building, which would require zoning approval from the City Council, is part of a multiphase redevelopment proposed by Chicago developers Riverside Investment & Development and Convexity Properties.

Under the new plan, set to be unveiled at a public meeting Tuesday night, the 715-foot-tall proposed office tower would have 1.5 million square feet of space atop 400 below-ground parking spaces, according to the city’s Department of Planning and Development.

From the Trib story above.




Safe design. Wonder how much of an expansion this is vs. consolidation for BMO (if it is them). Could leave some pretty big openings in the Loop.

They just copy-pasted the original design for 110 N Wacker.

I guess the one thing it has going for it is that it’s far enough from the wacker towers to look different in its surroundings

Yeah, this thing is just office filler. But at least it replaces a fugly garage and will be part of a development that rehabs Union Station, at long last!

Not the most original design, but it's not ugly, and it will really impact the skyline from almost all angles. Good thing it is BMO and not a Salesforce competition tower. All of a sudden, lots of big office towers coming from this boom. Now if only 130N franklin could get built...

I was thinking about 1330 n Franklin and that it would be ok if the current plan falls through and gets reworked into something taller in the next cycle, after all there aren't alot of lots like that left in the CBD.

in terms of having empty lot or parking lot where you dont need to tear down any existing buildings.

I like the park. Otherwise, this is boring.

So disappointed. I hope the design will be refined some more.
