/\ That looks like a mighty proposal for the site. Incredible that it's been a decade since the spire has been dead.

While I was really excited for the Spire if they could build those there that would be a really nice addition.

not that this makes it any more of an inevitability, but at the Dept. of Planning in City Hall (10th floor) there is a large model of the city in the elevator lobby, and these two towers are already plugged into it.

Plans change, especially in volatile and uncertain times.

Chicago has built a lot this cycle, so it's hard to imagine enough demand for 800-1000 foot buildings until 5-10 years from now or whenever the next one is.

Hopefully developers like Related, Magellan and CIM Group will shelf the currently proposed projects and hold onto the sites until better times.

Seems like the demand for housing is here right now.

This site is an eyesore. Related should be forced to do something with the site if they do not plan on building for the next 5 years. I used to live in the townhouses right next to the site. Our association would complain incessantly to the city and Related to cover the hole. It's on our front door step.

^^ At this point they should just make it a park...

If that were true you'd think they'd build.

The other condo sales seem to be doing well but maybe their thinking is that those buildings have partially saturated the market already and satisfied the demand.

How is it that the West Loop has thousands of units under construction, meanwhile this location literally in the best location in the city can't get under way?

West Loop is also hipper than Streeterville and has more stuff from that angle to do. So there's that as well. But that shouldn't stop this thing from happening anyway.

Also, don't forget that this is Related Midwest we're talking about. They'll sit years on a project before they start construction.

I wish Onni or Crescent Heights would take over.

For how much longer is Reilley the Alderman? I know it probably won't happen but it'd be nice if another developer got approval for something better.

It's a decent project as is but could be much more.

^Reilly is running unopposed. . . and besides, he literally has nothing to do with the timeline of this development. . .

I know he doesn't have to do with the timeline, but he's the reason the height was chopped.

If someone else took over the site, the building would need to be reapproved and it'd be better if there were a different alderman, that's why I asked.

Sucks he's running unopposed.

I think the height chop was because he fought for the parking to be underground and not have an ugly podium. I support that decision even if it means it comes with a height chop.

Reilly also rejected the hotel component which taken together with the podium elimination seem to be the main reasons for the height reduction. I actually liked the previous podium design and how it shielded LSD from this project and "lifted" the buildings above LSD.

agreed... one podium that actually worked because it solved other issues besides car storage.
