^ they're about 4 blocks from each other, but 4th pres probably won't be built, at least not as currently planned.

That's a very foreshortened view of City Place, the building at the SW corner of Michigan & Huron with the arched top.

I heard some interesting information about the height of this tower. Now this is unofficial as the tower is still in the design stages, but it's possible that it will be in the 735'-750' range. As I said this is still unofficial. We must wait until we can see the actual blueprints, but I figured I should share.

750' would be a nice increase on the height from 720'. I just moved to Chicago and I haven't been following all these threads but does this tower have a pretty good chance of actually being built or what do you guys think?

^ yeah, i would say this one has a pretty good chance of happening. of course it all depends on how sales go, but LR is a very reputable outift. they know what they're doing and they seem to have put together a pretty top-notch product with this tower.

barring major market crashes and other unforeseen goofiness, i put this one in the "when", not "if", category.

I got this rendering yesterday from LR Development. It's a perspective view from Huron and Rush Street towards the residential lobby.

^ That rendering makes it look like it will have green glass. And polished granite sidewalks.

Now that's a beautiful residential tower!

For any of the Philly forumers that pass by, doesn't 71 East Huron look like a mix of Comcast Center and the Murano?

Major buildings set for Chicago, San Diego, Salt Lake City
'Church of the Future' planned now

By Pat McCaughan
Monday, April 03, 2006
[Episcopal News Service] The church of the future just may be connected to a high-rise. The Diocese of Chicago is moving forward with plans to erect a 64-story elliptical-shaped glass office and condominium tower, which will double its current space and help fund future ministry, said Michael Stephenson, canon for development.
Located on the city's upscale residential North side, the new building will house offices for the diocese, St. James Cathedral and Episcopal Charities and Community Services.

"The space will also include a 65,000 square-foot Canyon Ranch health and wellness center and restaurant, 100 hotel condominiums connected with Canyon Ranch and another 330 private condominium units," Stephenson said.

"It is planned that the new building will be the greenest high-rise building in Chicago, in the forefront of environmental and energy conservation designs," he said. The building, which will also include several floors of parking, is planned to replace the current five-story diocesan and cathedral office building, constructed in 1967.

The Chicago development mirrors a growing national trend among churches of all denominations seeking to maximize land use for ministry, said the Rev. Cindy Voorhees of Voorhees Design (see related story).

"Such churches are typically in inner cities where the real estate market has skyrocketed and a renaissance is occurring in the city and the church has now become again the center point of the city," said Voorhees, a church designer for 16 years and associate rector at St. John's Episcopal Church in Los Angeles. "The churches realize that they can be a more integral part of the city if they offer more direct services, so they partner with developers to do that."

In addition to Episcopal churches, Voorhees' current clientele includes Presbyterian, Baptist, Calvary and nondenominational churches, as well as a synagogue. Typically, such projects can include retail space and underground parking, as well as low-income and high-end housing units like condominiums.

"It's not everyone's model, but this is more millennium thinking, in my view. I think the church needs to become more entrepreneurial in the use of assets. Why not use the land for the benefit of the city and the church?" said Voorhees. "You have churches with a lot of land and very little parking, so they put in underground parking beneath retail outlets and it becomes one big happy family, a kind of symbiotic relationship where everyone wins."

Bishop William Persell of Chicago praised city officials for supporting the plan. "The building's design will be notable on the skyline of our great city, known for its architecture, and the new diocesan and cathedral center and the proceeds from the property lease will greatly enhance our mission," he said.

"Proceeds from the ground lease will fund future mission of the diocese in such areas as congregational development, church starts or more direct ministries," added David Skidmore, communications director.

Construction is expected to start in early 2007 with completion in late 2009.

Additionally, the plans for the new office center have sparked a renewed interest in refurbishing and rendering more accessible nearby St. James Cathedral, Skidmore said. "The Cathedral in tandem is considering innovative approaches to redesign of space in keeping with renovation plans developed in the 1980s that were never realized."

The Canyon Ranch Spa and associated residences are going to be something very special for Chicago.

Can anyone confirm that the entire building will be elliptical or are the renderings deceptive, like the Regatta in LSE?

Passers-by in renderings are always hot. Much thinner than Chicagoans generally.

It seems that the tower will be round. The renders show it at least 3/4ths of the tower will be. There will be a retangular lowrise portion on the south side of the lot.

yes, the entire tower is elliptical in plan, except for the rectangular podium portion at the base that STR mentioned above.

and i fail to see how the rebndering for the regatta was deceptive with regards to the shape of the building. the rendering shows a rectangular building with a corner curve, which is what they have built.

^^^^^^^^^
Okay, maybe not deceptive, but perhaps misleading. In all the renderings I saw, I never noticed one which clearly showed the building's west side. I thought the whole building was curvy and glassy apart from the base.

^That's why I am always a little shocked when people complain about Regatta. Did people not see the same renderings as I did? Because the crap that's going on the western side is what was shown in those renderings.
