Here's a rendering of it. It'll be 12 stories with 96 total units (63 of them affordable). Great added density in this area for sure, especially because it's mainly open (at least nice grass there) land:

I'm trying to update a listing of all Chicago highrises (I have one that goes up through 2009). I can't figure out how to get addresses or architects from the SSP "Database" except to query one building page at a time. Is there some way to download the data for Chicago buildings—with all fields?

OCS isn't tall enough?! jk...

Yeah, the post office selling that site next to the old Rainforest Cafe has always been my dream. Someday that hole in RN (McDonald's, Hard Rock, Post Office, BP, Walgreens) will get eaten up and then RN will finally feel more like Midtown. I think it would take a bit of a housing boom for that to transpire though.

North Union is planning to build 600-700 footer towers as last phase of the plan and I believe those will be built given JDL's frenetic delivery track record (more Near North but pretty similar). Those are phase to break ground ~ 2024 I believe which isn't that far away. These are going to seem absolutely massive in their surrounding area.

Also the Salvation Army development - has some 600'+ towers planned which is almost River North.

But I don't really see any 'surprise' tall towers popping up in RN. They would need a huge lot like OCS. But yeah it'd have to be on the McDonal'd lot or post office. Can't think of anywhere else one would really fit - and I don't see any NY superskinny's being supported by prices in RN.

I really dislike that part of river north. the area with the bp gas station, suburban walgreens with a parking lot, suburban drive thru mcdonalds with a parking lot, the drive thru portillos, just kills the whole vibrancy of the area.

Yeah I think this is the consensus view.

The only potential development progress has been the closing of Rainforest Cafe.

Replacing the aging facade — which features a tree canopy, giant mushrooms and swinging monkeys — would be “welcomed by the neighborhood,” Riordan said.
Every vacant building seems to have had it's run as a 'potential cannabis' dispensary. I don't think this one panned out.

Quote:
One potential challenge facing the deal is a state law that prohibits dispensaries from locating within 1,500 feet of each other. At least two other dispensaries appear to be within that range of the former Rainforest Cafe.
I'm not sure about formal approval/denial of the dispensary. But maybe if it has been denied Conlon will move on to look for another opportunity for the property.

I'll never get the walgreens. Maybe in 1989 but not now

having development "jump over" those things with towers west of LaSalle has helped some, making the BP feel like it's in a bowl, but the whole area needs a re-imagining

I'm not sure when McDonald's would be willing to give up that parking lot or if HardRock Cafe will ever leave that location but I can see the BP and Walgreen's being replaced with high rises in the next few decades

Live a few blocks from that area... seems like the Weedforest Cafe is happening. They are taking lots of parking from the surrounding buildings too. I guess something is better than nothing. Currently it's a hangout (and smokeout) for delivery cyclists.

That Walgreens is rough, mostly due to the crackheads that harass you. I only go to the CVS a bit east, so much nicer/safer.

McD & Hardrock should sell those parking lots. One tower can have enough for both (like what One Chicago did for Holy Name).

Also still waiting on new about the fire station redevelopment. Seems like they have not secured an anchor tenant yet?

Not any more, construction fences are up.
Here's what is planned: https://drive.google.com/file/d/13u5...80Xll7Uqt/view

I believe it went to the ZBA last week without the alderman's support. Not sure if it was approved or not...

Not sure if this was posted on here already, by the Shapack/CRG project at 170 N. Green will officially be called "One Fulton Market."

It's shy of 500 feet, but still might benefit from it's own thread like 900 Randolph...

I am very surprised that the Fire Dept/CDOT will let them call it "One Fulton Market" when it is not on Fulton Market and it is not at 1 N/S or 1 E/W. The first time there is a 9-1-1 call, first responders will be very confused.

Then again, they have David Reifman listed as the project contact so I guess they can get whatever they want from city agencies...

All the development on wells has helped tremendously. Wells is kind of cute now. Just need that vector to continue to push east. However, LaSalle is such an unpleasant street to live on and McDonald's will never sell that land ever. It might take a while.

Maaaaaybe a supertall could go on on of the lots flanking NBC tower.

But is this just a name of the development (as opposed to a 'vanity' address....I think there's another word for this type of address)? In other words, just like calling 233 S Wacker Willis Tower (but this marketing name happens to sound like an address)? So different than, for example, Riverside Dr addresses. Just a question.........I don't know the answer....but if this is the case, what input would Fire Dept/CDOT have in how real estate developments are marketed?
