I think that’s the office. When’s the last time a parking garage had floor to ceiling bay windows.

750 is a lot of parking, but when you factor in a million office square feet, it’s probably about a .5:1 ratio. I’m not sure this is even TOD so they may not have an option.

They could always wait 25 years for the new Metra station to be built.

Indeed, that's why I was confused...but then where's the parking?

Absolutely incredible.... The West Loop continues to impress. That sleek rendering is the 500 footer, yes? I am assuming the 400 footer will look similar?

Office component is a seperate subarea. That's the parking.

Remember, we're talking two buildings.

The Applicant requests a rezoning of the subject property from the M2-3 Neighborhood Commercial District to the DX-7 Downtown Mixed-Use District then to a Residential-Business Planned Development to create a two-subarea planned development. Subarea A, located on the eastern portion ofthe property, would permit the construction of a 418'0" foot tall building with 338 residential units above 460 vehicular parking spaces, 204.780 square feet of office space, and ground floor commercial uses, together with accessory and incidental uses. Subarea B, located on the western portion of the property, would permit the construction of a 515'0" foot tall building with either 633 residential units or 569,657 square feet of office space (or a mixed-use development of the two foregoing uses) above 255 vehicular parking spaces and ground-floor commercial uses, together with accessory and incidental uses.

The rendering is of Building A, so the shorter 418' building.

No the phase 1 eastern portion is res AND office. 204k office and the tower is above parking so I’m assuming the portion of the tower next to the office component will contain parking. Essentially the bottom third of the res tower.

I see that now

It's crazy our meatpacking district is getting taller buildings than the downtowns of fast growing cities like Houston, Dallas, or Atlanta.

But regarding the parking, the amount is a negative, but if its all underground, then it's cool I guess. Above ground parking absolutely kills street activity.

If that's the case, then it seems the podium is facing the train tracks (so not really so detrimental to street activity), and perhaps there are plans to make some of the parking accessible to Metra riders?

The site it too far from a CTA station to qualify for TOD, so they likely have that many parking spots because of zoning

^incredible, thank you! If even 60% of this gets built, we'll need some major infrastructure improvements like a circle line or Western Ave subway to keep people moving. A hub & spoke system worked fine when work & entertainment was centered in the Loop, but that's changed.

I snorted.

Maybe build a new infill CTA station at Elizabeth to tide us over for the next few decades.

that would seem logical but the next city transit priority seems to be extending the red line down to 138th street into what look to be continually depopulating areas

the chance of a new subway line or elevated line (really any heavy rail) is close to zero I would say

at least we have been making logical investments in upgrading the existing infrastructure

A high-quality BRT on Damen and Western would be a great start. Relatively cheap and quick to do, too. Heck, I bet they could partner with Rivian to build electric busses to attract both federal and private investment.

340 North Canal??

Soil testing crew hard at work near Clinton and Kinzie this morning. Sorry couldn't grab a photo from my bike.

They were very close to the Cassidy Tire building, so I couldn't tell which site they were there for:

The Circle Line is needed now more than ever, especially with the growth of West Loop, the IMD, and Lincoln Yards. The North/Elston stop would have provided direct connection to Lincoln Yards and really helped facilitate the North Branch's growth. BRT is definitely needed in the near-term, especially with rising transit construction costs.
