Cedar Street is proposing a 15 story building with up to 110 units just north of the Bush Temple of Music on Chicago & Clark, which they're currently renovating to have about the same number of units. The two buildings just north of it would be demolished for this. I think one has empty retail/commercial space while the other is a bar/lounge

Also mentioned in this article: the developer of the Ed Debevic's tower plans to break ground in 5 weeks.

That was fast, wonder if Gino's will also be breaking ground around then? Wells and Chicago Ave corridors are just scorching hot right now.

I think he also brought up the church on Huron too. I don't know who he is, but he gets some great scoops.

Just returned from a meeting where a developer is proposing the demo of two vintage buildings at 450-454 W Belmont and replacing it with an 18 story tower including 90 units. Base has lobby and three levels of parking. Love the density, hate the loss of historic streetscape. New building nothing special...Architect is Antunovich. They had full renderings, ill see if I can get my hands on them.

London House, Hampton, Chicago Motor Club

This triangle block has become one of my favorite groupings of buildings on earth. No single building is perfect, but it's nearly every style of the last 100+ years. And, most importantly, not one sq foot of land is wasted.

I felt the same way looking at streetview, but I walked over there this morning to take a look and the current buildings are in rough shape, not particularly attractive and don't contribute a whole lot to the streetscape since they're set back and have a driveway separating them. After seeing the site in person, I'm good with higher density redevelopment. Mitigating the parking deck on the first 3 stories will be the key to this one. Unfortunately there is no alley so a garage door takes up about 40% of the front facade.

Look out: The Clybourn Corridor is about to get more crowded

Deerfield developer Chuck Malk has proposed a two-tower residential project with 407 units at the southwest corner of Weed and Fremont streets.
The taller of the two towers is about 340 feet.

there are lots of houses in chicago that are set back from the street, i dont think that means they need to be demolished tho. things in rough shape can be restored.

with what youre describing (giant garage door fronting the sidewalk) i dont see how thats an improvement over something existing and rather handsome.

moderator note:

i moved all of the condo vs. SFH discussion to the chicago general development thread since it was getting way off topic for the highrise thread.

^ Thanks for those detailed shots. It's a nice tower that treats the Chicago Ave side quite well. But there is really nothing positive I can say about that blank wall along LaSalle.

At least in the prewar era blank walls had some interesting ornamentation. But now....blah

You know, it's a simple, textured, nicely proportioned little box. For what it is, it's not making itself out to be anything other than what it is, and I appreciate that. It allows for a seamless coupling of the building with the sidewalk at Chicago, too. It's not unpleasant to walk by, either (though, the spectre of exhaust fumes as you walk by, whether they're present or not, is unnerving). It blows Flair tower or the Fordham or the new Jones Chicago (or whatever that's called) out of the water. Superseded only by Contemporaine, for my own tastes.

^ I see your point, and being on these Chicago forums for 11 years now I get the whole Chicago mantra of "buildings must be themselves".

I respect that.

But a blank wall at street level is a blank fucking wall at street level. I don't want blank walls to "be themselves" when we are trying to build an interesting, pedestrian-friendly environment. I guess I'll never be able to accept that.

Perhaps the "New York" in me is still residing in there somewhere. I'd rather have some kind of activity--even artwork, bilboards, or graffiti--some sign of life, facing the sidewalk than swaths of pale concrete.

^I definitely understand that. The minimalist in me likes the way they treated this one, and they're not bullshitting me, which I like.

I actually really liked the plain, blank concrete of the elevator core for the Division/Ashland tower, and I was disappointed when they covered it up with whatever mural/advertisement they put up.
