Amazing vantage and also an excellent shot of that L shaped parking lot apparently owned by Loyola next to Lawson House that was previously discussed.

That's the only surface lot I can see in that pic. Hopefully Loyola builds something nice.

Photos: Urbanize tours the nearly complete One Chicago development
The mixed-use complex includes two towers and reaches 971 feet in height
FEBRUARY 03, 2022, 7:00AM LUKAS KUGLER

Quote:
The expansive One Chicago development is nearly complete and Urbanize got an inside look at the construction. Planned to deliver 735 rental apartments and 77 for-sale condominiums, the two-tower plan is a venture of JDL Development. Located in the heart of River North, the design is a product of collaboration between Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture and Goettsch Partners. Since Urbanize’s last tour, the tower crane is down, glass is up, and the construction hoist has been removed.

I like how this building fuses old and new architectural styles and I like how it has an elevated park and I like how there is a setback from the street, allowing the street to be more open.

The hobos & crackheads around the McD's would destroy the fountain, probably a good move liability wise.

I said this before and i'm going to say it again, that red line mcdonalds next to this building is a stain on our city. Not only is it a crime magnet, its a fucking suburban fast food joint with a drive thru literally right next to a subway stop.

Prime spot for a massive mixed use project. Mcdonalds will pay for cursing our city with so many suburban buildings through out our city and refusing to sell lol.

Can't disagree. It won't last forever, but it will probably last a pretty long time. But I definitely see that location going before the one next to Portillo's.

A bit over the top (“stain on our city”?)

But yeah, it’s a poor use of land and full of rather shady people, but isn’t that what cities are about? We can’t have everything be sterile playgrounds for rich assholes like you and me, we need a place for crack dealers to do their thing too.

Best solution is to have the site redeveloped into a highrise while McDonald’s continues to occupy the base. Then everybody wins

Definitely a huge downgrade for the ground/street level design between removal of the fountain, greenery moat, and awning removal.

No. Why take the trees that were nicely separating the street from pedestrians and move them in order to separate pedestrians from the nice ground floor windows. I'd guess to impede future mobs/rioters? but from a design perspective, I think it a loss.

That sucks. Chicago and NY are leaders with nice water features.

^ Chicago a leader in water features?...sorry wish that was true...name me some nice water features that have been built in this city in the last 20 years (outside of grant park)?...its a shame this was removed because these type of creative fountains/water pools could add to the street level landscape of this city.

Not necessarily new ones but Buckingham Fountain, the Centennial Fountain, the water feature at the Hancock Center, and the fountains by the Art Institute.

Of course Crowne Fountain, Daley Plaza Fountain, Vietnam Veterans Fountain on Riverwalk, that big fountain at the entrance of Navy Pier, the Aon Plaza fountain!

The AON fountains were incredible, but weren't they dismantled?

Oh I don't know how I missed that. That's why I enjoy this forum

The results are maybe a bit underwhelming but the street appeal for the entrance of Aon was really bad prior to this so I think it had to be done. https://hga.com/newly-remodeled-aon-...to-the-public/

Especially for the upcoming the exterior/elevator attraction for Aon - which is apparently still on and is supposed to start this summer. I'm extremely excited for that and I think it would be one of the best new attractions in the city in a long time (since the riverwalk).

Very Instagrammable which I think is a good thing for the city. Looks amazing: http://aoncenterobservatory.com/wp-c...line_Final.pdf - hopefully will have it's own thread soon.

It sucks that they demolished that fountain though. It was amazing. They also demolished a really nice fountain at the old Citicorp Center on Lex in NY.

These were amazing.





The new plaza is beautiful, but I preferred the fountains.
