It could turn out well when actually built, of course, but something feels off about the rendered concept.

I can't imagine that the landmarks guidelines are so onerous as to limit creative interpretations to...

... that.

YES!! Not sure it was meant as a positive, but I love it. Another way to describe this institutional, austere (as the W Loop neighborhood artist described) aesthetic. Maybe I'm just not the warm, fuzzy, let's-humanize-everything type. At any rate, more of this, please.

Next month's Plan Commission agenda is up and spotted the affordable housing development planned for the SE corner of Lake & Damen has grown from 10 stories to 12 stories, 136 ft. The other high rise on the agenda is 160 N Elizabeth.

It was talked about awhile ago in the General Discussions thread. It's supposed to be 106K sq ft with room for 800 people

160 N Elizabeth

Thought I'd drop in some renderings for 160 N Elizabeth on the Plan Commission agenda for March. Think they were revealed on YIMBY first. https://chicagoyimby.com/2021/01/ren...west-loop.html

more recently also seen on chicagoarchitecture.org

Marquette is planning a 24 story highrise, 280 units, for Damen & Harrison. They then want to build a 9 story midrise, with 120 units, just south of the highrise. These plots are a part of the IMD Planned Development, so they likely won't need a zoning change. Marquette hopes to start construction in July

True - I live right by the site though and walk by on a daily basis with my dog and this is the first time (in a long time) there's been any activity.

YIMBY reported that this was a 4/1 construction start.
