I don't believe this will get off the ground. who is the developer?

The Lurker Sep 24, 2015 4:54 PM

We're gonna need a lot of bananas if this gets built. The base compliments the streetwall handsomely.

Why so much doubt? Had the recession made us all eternal pessimist?

well, those renderings were removed awfully fast from Jahn's website.

at least i got a peek at them. what a fantastic looking tower! without a doubt my current favorite proposal in the city right now.

Here we go from curbed... who will probably be asked to take it down.

OMG. this. THIS. This spot, this architect, this design. Seriously everything. I so hope this beauty get's built. I've been wondering how long it would take for developers to capitalize on the amazing opportunities S Michigan has. What a stunner! By far, my favorite building proposed. :slob: Can you imagine if this goes UC, watching it get built, those cantilevers? Wow. Just wow.

save that image to your hard drive while you can folks.

it might disappear at any moment.

That must have been an accident as it's no longer visible.


Never mind....

FUCKIN' AWESOME...

"Iconic buildings today are buildings that look weird." -Viñoly

I think this thing looks weird. I don't hate it, but I don't think I understand it. I think it's that the bottom section, which matches the height of its neighbor to the north, doesn't seem related to the rest of the building. It looks like that was a building that had always been there and then they built a 70 story addition on top of it.

Some quick photoshop work

idk...i like that it matches the neighbor, i'd like a LOT more if it was partially deferential...drop that heavy cornice two floors (but not the overall height!). no reason to be so perfectly matchy....a little step there goes a long way.

It's got the same vibe as the new WTC2 going on. Really sleek from one angle, kinda clunky from another. Better than WTC2 though.
I don't understand the cantilever as a design element either. A setback creates usable space for balconies and terraces. The overhang is negative space. I get that it creates more space above it, but just looks bad to me.

But this is going to take all the NIMBY heat off the Roosevelt towers. Poof goes the argument that they're too tall and don't tie into the skyline.

BVictor1 Sep 24, 2015 6:01 PM

Now I want to see developers come up with significant proposals for the old YWCA site and the surface parking lot behind the Congress Plaza.

Jibba Sep 24, 2015 6:06 PM

Holy SHIT this thing is dope. Hot damn. And Jahn's facades are ACE. This would be one of the most stunning buildings in the city, mark my words. Goodness.

That rendering is pretty badass...hope this thing gets built.

The North One Sep 24, 2015 6:11 PM

Wow, leave it to Chicago to do a better version of 200 WTC.

It kinda looks like the top was separated, the base got turned 90 degrees (top now facing left) and got put back together.
