How prophetic your words were . . . Only now to find out the residents are pushing back against the proposed casino being built on the riverfront. Sometimes residents ruin economic progression simply because they don't want to lose a view.

Southbank (The Reed, Cooper) is the Lendlease portion. I think you meant CMK.

Am I looking at that right? I'm just wondering if, in a future time when the Wells-Wentworth connector is finally complete and "The 78" and other nearby developments finally happen, those retail bays have the potential to be converted into active usage?

Interesting. Either never realized or long ago had forgotten about that. Right now it's part of the garage, right? My guess is it will never be converted if still a possibility. Hopefully that proves incorrect.

Are those liner units or how they are hiding the parking podium? Either way, it's not bad as far as these things go. If they do have liner units, it's a shame they don't go all the way around like in the original version of this tower.

^^ That's the Cooper (720 S Wells) in the foreground before the Reed. Those are two entirely different projects and what you see are glass panels hiding the Coopers parking podium.

I was referring to the glass panels being installed around the exterior of the parking podium for the Reed, the building in the center of the last photo that is under construction.

that area needs some retail/vibrancy. The south loop in general is very lacking compared to the west loop/river north/shit even lakeshore east.

No, that's Cooper. The Reed is behind it. It's a bit hard to see in the photo but no glass has been installed on Reed's podium yet.

Here's the exact same street view from before Reed was under construction

Well the Cooper's retail space is leased out now – there's a taco spot, boba tea/coffee shop and wine/liquor store all being built there right now – and the Vetro space at Harrison/Wells was just leased out, so this stretch is finally making some progress. Unfortunately a lot of the older loft buildings west of Clark don't even have retail space at street level, since that pocket of Printers Row was pretty much a no-man's land until the last five years or so.

The number of boba options has really exploded downtown. At one point there was only Vivi... now we have Vivi, Bubbleicious, Tea Monster (highly recommend... though hours can be tricky), Tea% and a new place? Not to mention the Boba vending machine in Block 37, and Teamo just across the river at Northbridge...

Views have never once been mentioned by any of the residents opposing casino locations.
