How are they going to keep birds from shitting all over the top of that Applestore. I've already seen seagulls and pigeons chilling up there in the evenings the last couple weeks. Seems like it'll be a nightmare to keep clean. In fact even in one of those pictures it looks like you can see bird crap all over the roof!

Thanks to Friends of the Parks, a 400-foot strip along the lake edge are already under the control of the Park District.

Unfortunately, because the land is made from slag, it can't easily be dredged for lagoons or plantings needing deep roots. And because it's a 10-foot drop into 40-foot-deep water, it won't easily be turned into bathing beaches, either. Maybe that's where Tiger Woods should put his new golf course.

^^^ Thanks for FOTP? Or do you mean "thanks to the fact that there is no way in hell the city would approve any new use for this land without reasonable lakefront park/access concessions"?

A time-lapse video of the construction of that building can be found here. It wouldn't embed in the post.

I'm curious as to the foundation system used on these buildings. It consists of a series of 6 - 7 foot micropiles(?) that are driven into the ground. A steel grid frame is fastened onto the micropiles and that serves as the foundation.

Has this been done in Chicago before?

One of the micropiles - looks like an overgrown deck screw...

Thanks to FotP, it's 400 feet rather than 250 (IIRC), and owned by the Park District for a decade now rather than a vague promise to maybe do something in the future—like we got in the North Branch plan.

except Harborside is basically right there. honestly not seeing where all this demand for more high priced golf courses is going to come from, esp with the glut the chicago region has and the decrease in play coming off the 90s/00s boom

The BHS methods don't appear to differ significantly from the prefab panel systems used on many TOD projects like the L, the Western or that one on Haddon. They come in panels and are slapped up by cranes. Then interior and exterior fit out occurs. It just appears that the BHS buildings have significantly lower quality of materials. Also I know the Haddon project doesn't even require cassions and sits directly on spread footings which would seem even cheaper than those giant screws.

Sure, but my point is that specifically with regard to land use, it was economically very easy to disregard large swaths of land. Such factors have varied greatly between markets.

^ wow, that's some decent density. Will replace a 1-story building sold by city colleges because of consolidations.

I'm counting 12 floors, so looks like this building is a high rise (and a pretty dope one)

Wow, that's pretty cool! I do wonder about the impending Belmont Flyover of the Brown Line. I recall reading that several buildings along the tracks would need to be torn down as a result of that project. Does this thing have to wait for the CTA to get its ducks in order before it gets approved?
