Pappageorge, Haymes transforming the city
Blair Kamin


...“I don’t know what happened to them,” said the retired Evanston architect John Macsai, who co-taught Haymes at the University of Illinois at Chicago. “They used to do these charming two-story townhouses. Then they got some high-rises, and they didn’t know what the hell to do.”

“They did some really nice things early on. And hopefuly they’ll live up to that potential,” added Chicago architect Laurence Booth.

Of the four models, GP3 appears to the right most, and OMP the third from the right. So, if the tallest model, the one furthest to back and left, could be GP4. It appears taller than the projected 900 feet. It would be great if the park were flanked by facing supertalls, AON on the north and GP4 in the south!

I think the leftmost model is another, larger OMP from a Western-ish vantage point.

By the way, BVic, in your post on Blair Kamin's blog, you referred to OMPW. But you refer to it in the present tense; I think you meant OMPE?

Yes I see what you mean. And apparantly at a differeent scale than the other model.

That's a ways down the road. The developers have the zoning approval, but no units have been marketed. It'll probably be at least 18-24 months (my guess).

with the news that the developers are now trying to sell this land to other parties, we can declare this proposal officially dead.
