Holy freaking crap, that whole Lincoln Park Master Plan is amazing! We're talking about a good two square blocks of surface lots here... Simply amazing...

Nice. Excited about this one.

I wonder if anyone can scrape up a city skyline with Lincoln Park in it -- from the North on I-25 and from City Park.........???

Very nice, looks like a hell of a lot of retail on the groundfloors, including a couple of pretty large spaces.

Well, it seems there IS talk of a Whole Foods going into one of those spaces, so it's all good!

But yeah, there's a definite need for both residential AND retail over there, in the most disgusting, surface-lotted area of downtown. This development may not be anything like Times Square, but hell, it's a great thing to see, even in plans!

Mmmmmm, what an incredible master plan. Look at all that park space too they have integrated into the buildings. And is that a bridge connecting the two sides over Lincoln? I'm spent...

woah i didnt even notice the park was elevated and there was a bridge. Good in some ways bad in others. Good to keep homeless off bad for normal people cause they cant access it.

The courtyard space is rather wasted, I'm afraid... But whatever. Still an uber exciting development.

Not sure it's entirely wasted... it's parking. And with that amount of retail, they would certainly need (or want, at least) to have some...

edit: not sure i like those small alcoves of street level green space, though.... seems to me that they will be wasted, even scary spaces... guess it depends on the treatment and connection to the surrounding retail

Now I really hope they aren't going to put grass/astroturf on those rooftop courtyards. That would be far too Vancouveresque. Just look at the plans for the new Vancouver Convention Centre. I wouldn't wish that upon any city, regardless of annual precipitation.

It figures, another party. You should change your name to partygirl. (j/k)

MMMKAY....i think this is the additional phasing that lydia refererred to a while back. i spent some time in there sales center today (VERY nice operation they are running).

Here is some information:
- 31 stories, 12 feet per floor = 372 feet
- the building is 51% reserved already
- groundbreaking will be in November
- completion in january 2008
- developer already has the land for the phases 2- 5, to be done over the next 5 years (we hope)
- Whole Foods is *close* to signing to be the groundfloor anchor on the broadway corner across from phase 1.
- the building will be made of structural steel rather than RC (i am doubting the sales person on this one....)
- the narrow tower in the future phase WILL be shorter than what is shown....
That is freakin' amazing, everything about it... the green space is a little weak. Anytime I see stuff like that I think skaters and bums. Maybe it'll be different with the whole foods in there (doubt it though)

Hmm, maybe the street level green space is fenced off, so the residents can look down from the elevated green space and laugh at the homeless trying to get in....

There are two possible scenarios with that courtyard. It will be either A) heavily used, or B) not heavily used. Frankly it would be better if it is not heavily used, as every person sitting in a private courtyard is a person not populating the street who by all accounts could and should be. If it's not heavily used then it's just dressing for the top of the parking garage, which I suppose is OK.

I just don't want it sucking life off the street.
