Crain's has some interesting facts and figures regarding the rate of condo sales at St. Regis and Trib.

As of Nov 11:

St. Regis 42% closed according to deeds, developer claims 60% closed or under contract (under contract not easily verified).

For Tribune, respective numbers are 33% and 50%.

It's nothing compared to the number of condos selling during the boom, but this is about as quick as you can expect to sell out a condo tower downtown Chicago these days.

I just went to the official site and scrolled down to the "A View to Inspire" section near the bottom. It's a stunning view, but unfortunately Sears Tower is completely blocked by Aon. This image shows the view from the 61st floor, but considering Aon's comparable height, I am fairly certain that even the highest penthouse still can't see Sears. Bummer!

Being further to the east, Lakeshore East Site I may have better luck.

A rather big loss on the restuarant front for St. Regis

Maybe the condo owners will sue (again)?

Damn.... I was really excited about that. Hopefully they can find a good alternative.

As stated in the article:

"A memo sent to the building’s investors on Tuesday from Magellan Development Group states that Alinea’s decision was “due to the impacts of COVID on staffing shortages and supply chain issues” and that the group has “determined that now is not the right time for them to take on the project.” Instead, the company will focus attention on its three restaurants and two bars — Alinea, Next Restaurant, Roister, Aviary, and the Office..

...In April 2020, Alinea confirmed the New York outposts of the Aviary and the Office would not reopen inside the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Kokonas told Eater NY that the closure wasn’t pandemic related."

It's a blow for sure, but Magellan will not let this prime restaurant location sit vacant. They will undoubtedly find another restaurant partner, it's just a matter of how quickly.

Yeah, like the heartbreak of psoriasis. The treatment of those blow-through floors is a major design fail. Ditto for those louvers on the south side of the building. Jeanne Gang is turning out to be a true successor to Helmut Jahn: looks great on paper, but not so much when executed.

appropriate.
"Thrilling" may not be your choice of words, but it hardly seems a reason to accuse him of being "less than trustworthy" and having ulterior motives.

More likely that he hasn't followed the progress of the building over the last few years in the way many of us have, and comes to it with a fresh set of eyes and may indeed find it thrilling.

It's just one man's opinion. And his resume is impressive.

he seems more overtly suspect.

Yes, this is all opinion and that is why Mr. Lewis' patina as a determiner of cultural tastes is not trustworthy. Blair Kamin was way better at presenting a

balanced analysis (Not that he was perfect) and that comparison alone leaves Mr. Lewis looking like a manipulative salesman.
Does your nose bleed all the way up there in your ivory tower? It must have amazing views of the clouds making their slow progress.

You don't like the tower. You think that anyone that does is dim or ill-informed. Reposting the same thoughts again and again with more SAT words isn't helping the discourse.

Blair Kamin had a lot of positive things to say about this tower as well.

I wonder who paid him off.
