Even if this gets delayed again until 2020, I'm so excited for this one!

Until this thing is 25 floors up, I'm not convinced it'll be finished. Too much deception

Saw they responded to another instagram post yesterday that they're breaking ground in October

Steely Dan Sep 25, 2019 10:24 PM

^ it is possible that the sales team's report of an october groundbreaking and bombardier's indsider info of a december start might both be correct.

they might indeed be planning some kind of ceremonial "groundbreaking" in october with the dignitaries, gold shovels, and all of that circus, and actual construction work (ie. caisson drilling) might not commence until december.

it still seems a little hard to believe with what we've heard about sales on this project, but time will tell.......

Is there a real estate development or architectural equivalent to the term "vaporware?" Maybe a "phantom project?" Regardless, that's how this sucker feels. It's the new worst project in Chicago.

On the Oct Landmarks agenda for renewal. I remain hopeful.

Quote:

1000 S. Michigan 4th Ward
Historic Michigan Boulevard District
Renewal of expired approval for a new 73-story, 832’ residential tower with ground-floor
retail and a 10-story parking structure at the base and consideration of proposed exterior
cladding materials.

Staff Recommendation: Staff recommends that the Committee find that the project, with the
following conditions, meets the criteria set forth in the
Commission’s Rules and Regulations, the Commission’s
Guidelines for Alterations to Historic Buildings and New
Construction and the Design Guidelines for the Historic Michigan
Boulevard District therefore, the project will not have an adverse
effect on the significant historical and architectural features of the
landmark district and approve the project with the following
conditions:
1. As proposed, staff recommends that the exterior changes
outlined are minor and may be approved as submitted per
drawings dated 7/18/19;
2. As proposed the cladding samples for the tower spandrels and
parking enclosure will be mill-finish aluminum (5005
Aluminum Mill Finish produced by Peterson Aluminum), the
window frames and passage screens shall be a matte steel
finish (1078-47 MTA Fluoronar, Dark Steel, 49644B produced by
TNEMEC Co.) and the glass shall have a grey color (AGC Interpane
Ipasol neutral 48/27) per submitted samples; and,
3. Any major changes to the proposal will come back for review
and approval by the Permit Review Committee.

Lol, imagine if they get turned down

I personally don't care about the reduction in architecturally quality at this location.

For the skyline this would be a major player regardless of quality as long as it stays as tall as it is supposed to be.

Tourists are not going to go in and take a piss.

They will see it from Grant Park and see the gap in the tooth filled further south.


To me that's the most important part of this project. Plus its a Jahn project so I

will take anything he has left in him at this point. Especially at this location.

I hate the parking podium. I would love if they continued the tower facade all the way to ground level.

You can blame the podium on those in charge of determining if this building meets the Michigan historical street wall qualifications lol

They did do soil testing last month or so so I think this one may sneak in.

That's an awfully nearsighted way to look at the development of a building that will be around (and have a prominent place in the skyline) for decades to come.

Hearing October 24 groundbreaking ceremony.

Steely Dan Oct 7, 2019 9:03 PM

I saw something similar in a FB comment from 1000M, though groundbreaking isn't the same as foundation of construction.

Waterview Tower had a groundbreaking ceremony too.

I remember reading that they are on a deadline to "begin work" by the end of the year. I wouldn't be suprised to see them "break ground" and let the site sit all winter

Elliphant Oct 8, 2019 11:00 AM

I'm across the street from the site twice a week, I'll be sure to report if I see anything constructiony happening.

The Pimp Oct 8, 2019 1:05 PM

Is financing in place?

BVictor1 Oct 10, 2019 9:08 PM

I was on the train and want to say I saw a tent on site?

It was just a glimpse and I’m not 100% sure, but I thought I saw a tent.

:haha: This seems like prime meme material. We were hoping for a Jahn signature building years ago, but we'll settle for a tent at this point.
