There’s 2 lots here with W. Court Pl cutting thru the middle of the site. Hoping with a new plan we’ll see the smaller, north lot go residential/hotel >1000’ and the south lot along Washington can be your 800’ office building.

Always seemed like an odd site to combine for one fat ass tower IMO. Maybe as demand creeps up like we’re seeing, someone could see my vision thru.

Woah! Looks like they were granted a 1 year extension to find an anchor tenant. JP Morgan Chase anyone?

Nice. I like the interchanging terraces. It'll bring some variety to the loop. I kinda wish there were more of them, however then it would start to look like those Aqua copycats in Toronto.

Still too short. Needs to be 900 feet or taller to stand out...

if there was a west loop-esque boom happening downtown I would say that, but its been quiet as hell development wise over there so we better just take what we can get...

if this was any other city, a 700 footer would be skyline changing. But here it's just infill. Either way, hope to see this massive vacant lot bite the dust

If that does happen I hope they go much taller. 730' in the middle of the Chicago loop is so underwhelming. Insofar that a 12 - 1,300 footer would really be more ideal.


The terraces do look cool though, other than that it's just a blue box. Way too many blue boxes in this area.

Is there any info on square footage? I didn't see any in the pdf. I'm gonna guess 1.3 million as those bottom floor plates are very bulky. I would love to see a hotel component on this site but I'll take this any day.

730' at this location is so meh. The terraces and sky garden are cool at least, hopefully it won't be dumbed down if they find a tenant.

Still hoping JP Morgan Chase chooses this location and gives us a 900' signature Tower...one can hope.

That big terrace is pretty cool, but the rest of it reminds me of a regular glass box apartment or condo building.

That’s my sentiment. I need to see renderings of the other side. The flat facade comes off as extremely boring. I almost hope Related/WL lands Chase, but we’ll see.

The new design looks promising, but as someone else mentioned, it looks ripe for the VE hatchet.

The middle design was super boring, glad that's no longer a thing.

The balconies of the new one kind of remind me of something out of Singapore, they're pretty cool and I hope they remain untouched.

It's sad how negative everything is surrounding development is these days. A semi decent proposal arises and the immediate (yet unfortunately realistic) reaction is that it must be too good to be true and we'll be VE'd to death.

Given their baller NYC tower, they go big, and have deep pockets.

900' is also meh and really is not much on the global stage these days, or in Chicago.

Yeah for sure. I think for JPMC, it would be somewhat of a statement piece. Probably not as good as the under construction new NYC HQ building, but it has to be visible. Word on the street is that Dimon wanted to compete with the new B of A and BMO buildings right? So why would JPMC abandon their 850 foot tower for a 730 foot one that's even less visible? The West Loop space makes more sense from that specific to be honest, unless they want to add about 300 more feet onto this one.

And yeah the top portion is incredibly boxy and boring. The bottom portion is only cool because of that cool terrace portion. And the terraces up from an office perspective aren't even practical for a lot. In one of my company's buildings in NYC, there's a big terrace on the 16th floor but we never once used it out of abundance of caution/danger. They refused any of us to step out there.

Yea it's a total waste of a site, but it's not known whether Chase will anchor it. If they do, hopefully they'll want a signature tower in the area, being Chase.

They'll probably put a logo on it though (which I personally wouldn't mind).

Was there ever an impression that there would be an 800' or higher skyscraper here? From what I've seen all of the proposals from the past 10 or so years have always been around the same height.

No, people on the forum just wished it would be taller
