There's a pending permit for it - 4 stories, 9 units, 9 parking spaces, and a private rooftop deck.

Hyde Park is getting the best architecture in the city right now. Hands down

It has been for a while.

The Regenstein Library expansion—that glass dome—is jaw dropping.

The truth is, nothing noteworthy that’s not a highrise is being built in Chicago outside of Hyde Park

^Well that's totally false, just on the South Side alone theres the Chinatown Library, several JGMA designed institutional buildings, at least one or two Ronan Buildings, and a Studio Gang boathouse. And that's literally just rattling off what comes to the top of my mind for the side of the city with the least private construction going on...

I like Solstice for the most part, but I don't understand the praise it receives here. The east/west sides of the building are atrocious, and overall it's a pretty clunky design. It's a neat concept with mediocre execution

I'd agree, but at this point I'm withholding judgement since all the cladding isn't up. You can clearly see it on the front view where all those white bits are just building wrap, but there also seem to be huge stretches of rawness on the East and West facade. My problem is with the North facade, which is mostly bland nothingness.

This Solstice living room is drool worthy. Crazy to think how long this one was in the pipeline in one form or another, but thrilled it finally got through.

Went down to Jackson Park yesterday evening and while driving back, I noticed how big of an impact that the apartment tower on 53rd will have. The skyline for Hyde Park is starting to get some bulk to it

Both University of Chicago projects, the dorm complex and the tower are under construction.

Does the top of Solstice say www.SOLSTICE.com? because that is a technology consulting firm lol. The correct web address is www.solsticechicago.com

I also can't believe these are rentals and not condos. Does unique design generally allow for higher rental prices or a premium in ownership pricing?

That's awesome, I lived in the Piccadilly for a year and it sucked that the ballroom was closed off.

I'm sure this has a lot to do with Hyde Park basically being a college town. I think there's a unique, reliable need for luxury rentals here.
