Looks like 332 North Michigan is getting completely gutted. Anybody know what that will be ? A lot of work to stay a chicago sports novelty shop.

wouldn't mind that building and it's neighbors to get knocked down and redeveloped, hopefully into something tall and architecturally interesting to counterbalance the sheer glass wall that 300 N Michigan will become.

This says that they're taking a notch out of the crown and eliminating the balconies on the western facade.

I'm not sure if that's good or bad, but the west side will be super visible from the river. Balconies typically look like shit, but there's really nothing else going on with the upper facade of this thing.

^You're right about there being not much aesthetic on the West facade now, but I do like the new symmetrical crown. It's all up to the glass now!

Beautiful!

VE strikes again! :hell: Now, the building will look shorter and have an ugly block on top as in 55 east Erie.

Got hopeful by the header that they were gonna add a crown or some embellishment up top

The top of this building is so much more important from an aesthetic point of view then the base. Although I do love the V columns, moving south across Michigan avenue bridge (arguably one of the most famous views of Chicago), the building is going to pretty much going to pop out as a banal blue box that obscures the carbide building. I wish they had made this building a little thinner/taller with some type of design on the top. Overall the quality is good but the visual impact nearly depletes from the city since it is removing the visual impact of such an iconic building (carbide) from such a unique location. It kind of feels like they are taking away part of old school Chicago (by obscuring it) that makes this city so great.

Attractive architect
 
Its very nice to see. Design of building is very attractive as it is in boxy shape and covered with glasses. But parking space is some what disappointing.

Such an absurdly dense block

I really feel like they could have rotated the tower 90 degrees - tons of setback to the north is available. A setback of 20 feet or so above the WW piers would have really respected CnC building without (as far as I can tell) a big change to the cost

Clamps for the climbing gallery/screen - these appear to be anchored on the surface of the floor not the edge of the slab.
The holes are where the nuts on the end of the post-tension cables are recessed into the slab.

A permit was issued on 3/23 for: "CONVERSION OF EXISTING OFFICE SPACE INTO RESIDENTIAL DWELLING UNIT AS PER PLANS (EXISTING OCCUPANCY S-1 PROPOSED OCCUPANCY R-3, TYPE IIIA CONSTRUCTION)(conditional permit subject to field inspections)"

(please move to general if necessary)

The 332 building was severely damaged during the unrest in June. There was some pretty wild footage of it on fire. I walked through it afterwards. Kind of incredible. I think they are restoring it to what it was - though updated, which if I remember right, was two levels of retail (including a lower level), an office for the store above and then a small apartment.
