I'm not comfortable yet with that 6-ish story IBC wood thing in Oak Park. Looks too fire-y to me.

This, while a beautiful design, looks like a death trap. Until I understand the engineering more, I am afraid of wood.

Well, not that wood. Some wood is pure Sunday morning magic.

It's not the wood per se, that I'm concerned with, it's the multitude of implied functionality/uses, that seem even more dream-like...

My uncle runs a business that fire proofs, mold proofs, termite proofs and laminates wood for structural applications. This would be a dream job. Certainly would be expensive to render that would non-combustible and structurally capable of supporting all that load.

Ralph presented it at the Cliff Dwellers event in August, and yesterday I saw the model of it being glued together in the Perkins + Will model shop. I suspect it will be on display this weekend during Open House Chicago. It's more in the realm of research P+W is doing for an eco-do-gooder group, rather than a building for a client with a program.

You can protect wood structures from fire in three ways:
1) cover the wood in fire resistant materials like doubled-up drywall, etc
2) make the wood so massive that the fire will only char the outside of the structure and doesn't cause failure (this is how timber lofts are built, and some new experimental wood high rises out of CLT)
3) install a sprinkler system to put out or control fires after they form

I'd be far more worried about fire in a wood 3-flat in Lakeview or single-family
home (which have none of these protections in place) than in a newly-built wood midrise.

Great progress shots! I think we can safely say that with this project which moves the downtown density in a totally new direction physically, that this boom is now bigger than the last one and the early 90s as well.

I'll be coming at the end of the month for the Bears game on Halloween and can't wait to see all the sites!

I signed up on the website a few times over the last 6 months and I still have not received any emails. Does it take a while for someone to contact you about condo sales?

I signed up as well and have heard nothing, but since the sales office also isn't yet open I've been assuming that there's nothing to send a message about?

I assume you are right and glad to hear I am not the only one.

Any chance they will start more than one building at the same time?

Assuming they still follow the 2023 completion timeline I would expect at least one of the phases to have a multi-skyscraper phase, but I haven't read the plan for a while, I thought someone had posted it in here somewhere

Seeing some tangible results on this site has me excited for how these whole area will look different in just a few years!
