Aye aye, and there hasn't been too much news from what I've seen. Hope it gets built though, another booster to the South loop/near southside

No real news since late 2015. Here's the Curbed article from March: http://chicago.curbed.com/2016/3/8/1...hrise-projects

^ No. This has been in the news recently - when it was revealed that CIM Group is delivering the equity for this project - and that John Murphy was expecting to wrap up financing before the end of the year. Very encouraging news for a near-term construction start.

This is the most recent one I could find. I don't think those are the correct renderings though... IIRC the project has changed height at least once.

^

Link below to the Crain's article that curbed post was actually based on, with Murphy's reference to construction loan close timing, as well as a rendering:

Horrible street interface and base design. Symetrical? Are they trying to make it look like cocknballs?

I'm concerned what genitalia you have been looking at in your life if you think this building looks like cocknballs

I'm concerned that you don't think a center shaft flanked by two little nodules doesn't resemble cocknballs.

I don't need you to agree with me to confirm my opinion. The base of this building is balls.

Groundbreaking within next few months

In a Trib article last week running through several major South Loop projects kicking-off or in the works, 1326 developer John Murphy confirmed this project is on-track (if perhaps delayed by 2-3 months, I'll add), as he stated construction will begin within a few months.

Link to Murphy Development Group's page for the project below.

It's as though they were trying for that. How else do you end up with those symmetrical bustles entirely different from the tower's design language? Normally you'd translate the chamfer/frustum motif onto the bustle, or there would be a unitized podium expressing a single design, or something like that. In the first place, normally there aren't two small sundecks, usually the tower is on one side and a sundeck of maximum area fills out the rest of the lot, to fit a pool, etc. Then, add to all of this the fact that the bustles are not fused to the ground but appear to float carefree one or two stories above street level... I think the partner went home one Friday thrilled with his tower, and left some randy junior guys to finish up the bustles over the weekend.

All the news lately is excellent, and while not in sloop, wolf point east should break ground soon too.
