This is awesome but are these the latest renderings? I've also seen renderings showing a ho-hum 8-story version, I assumed this was a VE move.

Buildings are significantly cheaper if less than 80' since certain highrise requirements do not apply. 8 stories is the max you can fit in an 80' building so architects/developers often aim to come in just below this threshold where the cost/SF jumps up.

Those renderings are from the plan commission meeting today, so they should be the latest. They increased the height of the building to 10 stories (~106 ft)

Got the images from the planning department's Twitter page and this is what was presented/approved by the city.

OK that's good to hear. I think this will be the tallest building on the South Side (apart from Hyde Park) to go up in awhile. There are a few highrises scattered along King Drive and Cottage Grove, some on Drexel but nothing since the 1980s I think.

The Forum is basically across the street from this. I know there was a group or 2 trying to renovate it back into its old glory. Any word on luck for them? I believe it was added to the National Register of Historic Places around a year ago.

I’m definitely encouraged by the development we are seeing in Bronzeville. I hope the momentum continues.

I’m also glad that they don’t have the same hyped up “keep out the gentrifiers!” attitude that East Woodlawn seems to have.
