the old Chicago Trust building is being converted into office condos as well (across the street from VP)

oh i pray thats she is never elected, half of our new highrises would be demolished for park space:(

Urban Sky Apr 4, 2007 5:22 AM

or she'll have them "take down" several already completed floors and use that material as recycled park mulch

Derek Apr 4, 2007 5:28 AM

half of that lot is going to be North Central Square:
• 0.6-acre, half-block plaza integrated into the full block development, but fully open to streets on the west, south, and east (along 8th, 9th, and C streets).
• Northern anchor of Northwest Neighborhood Center.
• Accommodations for special events, such as art shows, twilight movie showings, small concerts.
• Potential for permanent kiosks.
• Public art.
• May include below-grade parking accessed from and below development on the northern portion of the block.

according to ccdc
