Kennedys seek buyer for Wolf Point apartment tower from Crain's

Quote:
The developers are selling the building mainly to focus on their next project on the site, a 66-story, $360-million tower called Wolf Point East, said Greg Van Schaack, senior managing director in the Chicago office of Houston-based Hines. They've almost lined up their construction financing for that high-rise, which will have 707 apartments, and plan to break ground in May, he said.

It'll be interesting to see if the Kennedy's hold on to the land beneath the tower.

If they are going to cram all these units into that area are they planning to upgrade the road (Mart Center Dr) there? I was over there not long ago and that road is a clusterfuck. It is not wide enough to support 1 or 2 more towers in my opinion. It is jammed up now with cabs waiting and or picking up people. Hard to make the U turn to get to that garage there too.

Upgrade it how? It really can't be widened.

It's going to have to support what's been approved.

Not sure, is there garage access from underneath there? I didn't see any when i parked there. If that is where people living there are going to park I would have started with that. New rules fro the cabs there....maybe they cant Q up on that section. All i am saying is it was really bad with just what is there now. I guess it is good they don't have much parking there for the units...cause it will really be congested. Oh well...not much they can do now.

There's a hotel there, so having a cab queue there is somewhat needed. It is what it is.

There is the possibility of lower level access.

Not a bad free endorsement for those new office towers either. Not that the really need it.

So what's the current design on this one? Are they still going with this design?

If I'm not mistaken that looks like a new one, and I love it!

Looks to be about 1000 or so to the roof.

That is not a new design. That rendering was revealed last year and represents the final design for the East tower (the one on the right) that is moving forward, but not necessarily the final design for the South tower. The height and programming of the South tower have not yet been determined.

A super tall is not impossible but it has never been the intention of the developers to build one here. We reached that conclusion based on enthusiatic speculation.

I SPECULATE that we end up with something in the low to mid 800' range.

Which would be a shame. I've said it before that Wolf Point would be an incredible stage to show off a supertall. And there's a historical factor there too.. with it being one of the oldest European building sites in the city.

True, but the renderings have constantly shown a 950-1000 foot building. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
