Curious as well. There is some sort of hold-up here. Permit issue?
Loan hasn't closed yet? (that would surprise me though, as I'd have expected the loan for this one to close right before they commenced demo)
Something else?

They ran out of dump trucks to pick up those bricks.

No movement, but I was in the area and snapped a picture.

The fuck is going on with this one? Almost forgot this was a thing.

I heard the Japanese outfit that was providing the financing pulled out...

Steely Dan Mar 9, 2020 2:55 PM

it's a good thing they made sure to demo the existing building before they had their construction financing secured.

now we get to have another ugly dead-space hole in the urban fabric of michigan ave. for god only knows how long!

KWillChicago Mar 9, 2020 3:31 PM

Only a plus if we get taller more unique design, if this is dead.

RedCorsair87 Mar 9, 2020 3:34 PM

Maybe JDL will buy it and put something there.

Seriously! w..t...f...

This makes sense. I knew there had to be something going on - either with financing or something unexpected site-related that was discovered.

Construction was supposed to have begun in Nov. This means that it was likely a party specific issue that caused the deal they had prior to then falling apart. This should be/have been no big deal, as it's an A+ location, solid developer/equity investor, etc in terms of fairly easily (it's still a process of course, these deals take time to put together) being able to replace the debt with other party(ies).

At the moment, we're in a global public health crisis......with significant economic and financial market reverberations. Things look VERY iffy for the next couple quarters.



So, this complicates things.
