You need to train your dog better ;-)

Dee used to love the Alta Grand Central site when it was all fenced off - her own private running area.

Just read an article that Lendlease has refinanced some of its recent developments, including its projects here, and it plans to use the capital towards new construction.

So I expect them to keep plodding along

The plot next to Harrison is the prestige site, though because of the visibility from Congress... they've talked about doing something very tall there, possibly even a mass timber skyscraper (although that seemed more like a thought exercise than a real proposal).

I doubt they would push a project forward on this site in the middle of a recession when they have several other parcels on which to build first. Wherever the next phase will go, I hope they start soon!

Bkl has also recently been working on a design for this 'tallest' site.

South Bank Phase II won't break ground before spring, at the earliest, according to someone in the know.

This doesn't inspire confidence considering bkL's own designs are boring and derivative AF.

I see the little fenced-off area (purple square) lines up with Franklin Street, and I think it's most likely for access to grout the old freight tunnels running through where the Building E foundations will be sunk further south.

Given the skepticism that a lot of industry leaders are showing for multifamily in the next year or so, this might be jumping the gun a bit ... but it's "news" nonetheless:

Why? The original skyscrapers were only 100-200 feet tall. This will be over 400.

As some fear downturn in downtown real estate due to pandemic, Southbank developer doubles down with luxury condos at The Reed

By ARIEL CHEUNG
CHICAGO TRIBUNE |
DEC 15, 2020 AT 5:00 AM

"Word around Chicago real estate circles is that COVID-19 has slowed residential sales downtown, as more people work remotely and seek out larger homes with more elbow room and outdoor space in outer neighborhoods and suburbs.
Lendlease Chicago’s executive general manager of development Ted Weldon, however, sees nothing but promise for downtown home sales in the coming years — which is fortunate, as his company is readying for its next phase of the Southbank development on the edge of the Chicago River."

"Set to open in 2023, The Reed will be set on the South Branch of the river, with 216 condominiums and 224 apartments spread across 41 floors at 234 W. Polk St. in the South Loop."

One-, two- and three-bedroom condos will be sold starting at $390,000 and will range from 630 to 1,670 square feet. Located on floors 23 to 41, the condos will have views that can reach as far as Lake Michigan, Weldon said.


Apartments will be located on floors 9 to 22. Below them, a 12,000-square-foot outdoor deck is among building amenities that also include a demo kitchen and a private lounge exclusively for condo owners.
