They're calling her "Millie on Michigan" (mild cringe), which is assume is a play on Millennium Mile?

I imagine it'll also get a little confusing, given that MILA is just down the block.

I wonder if it will become another de facto Booth dorm (the worst is when I catch a train full of Boothies heading back home from Hyde Park).

That mural on the underside is a pretty cool touch.

CitizenM is pretty hip. I think this project does a great job at both modernizing and activating this part of Michigan Ave.

interesting marketing strategy (admitting to being a less desirable WPE?):

I don't see it so much as "less desirable" and more "overlooked in the shadow of a much higher-profile building."

Maybe that's the same thing, but think it works. Money talks and if I could pay half WPE rates and still live with a similarly beautiful view (a westward one too that won't turn your unit into a greenhouse in August), then I'd consider it.

I take it to mean that the realtor is suggesting WPE is overpriced. Also, that is a hell of a deal for that view in a brand new building.

A 2-bedroom with comparable views is going for ~$4400, which is a steal relative to Chicago's peers.

And best of all, you don't have to see the gaudy signage on 401 N Wabash, which is the challenge that LondonHouse has to face daily.

I would say WPE is a much better location for actual living.

these rates are likely the "lease up" incentives only which WPE does not have since it's already lease up.

They always say the rooftop is the "5th facade" of a building, this must be the 6th facade. I think there is 1 or 2 proposal in Fulton Market that would have something similar as well.

I even agree with this.

Reposting from HighRise Projs, forgot this had it's own thread:

If anyone is looking for an amazing view of the Carbide Building, 'The Millie' has got you covered.

PS - This is my favorite angle of NEMA. Looking tall and skinny here.

Just did a little investigative work on hotels.com and see that the CitizenM hotel in the building looks like it is opening in late September. Just in time for the marathon.
