Makes me want this one waaaaay more.

It dominated in this rendering, because there's no Essex shown. That building will soften the vistal impact you see above.

Let alone the impact of NEMA which will be just a few blocks to the left and 63 feet taller than this. 1000M will make a nice impact but not totally stick out like the rendering portrays.

Spoke to a friend earlier today who works for the team that designed the tower and their sales for the buildings is down to 34. The project is now considered dead and will not be moving forward (according to source).

RIP 1000M

Why don't they make it a mix of apartments and condos?

It was in its initial iteration. I hope that rumor is false.

Slumdog, thanks for the tip. I'm not even sad. At least we got a nice sidewalk barricade and some colorful signage out of the deal. It was a tough sell; there's so much new competition in the area. Overall, SLoop did pretty well this boom.

I wonder if they would have kept the original, better design if that would have saved the project.

If the rumor is true I'm not that sad nor surprised. It's a horrible frankenstein design. I kept waiting for them to come to their senses and change it. Maybe this will teach people that design actually matters. Hopefully we get a post mortem of some sort.

This lot will only increase in value as the south loop matures. Something will go there, hopefully something much better.

Trying to get over $1000/sq ft for this part of the city is a huge leap for the area when even the nicest buildings in the area can barely hit an average of $700/sq ft was the biggest problem to me. Aside from the park and views, the area really doesn't have much going for it. If it was in the $700-$800/sq ft range it may have had a chance.

Eh, not such a big deal... it would have been cool but this is definitely not my favorite Chicago project

NEMA Phase II is what I'm really hoping for, and a few others downtown.

I liked it at first but from some angles I agree

not surprising. serves the developer right for stupidly ditching jahn's initial cantilevered boxes design. that iteration was spectacular.

i was only ever excited about this one as a skyline "height bridge" between the loop and the south wall. the wonky design never did fully grow on me.

Not sad about this if true. Did not like the way it looked in the skyline or that crown.

On life support?

FWIW, got this today in an email from Chicago Agent Magazine



"dead" might be too strong a word at the moment...

That's kind of how I feel about this tower. I'll wait until we get an official announcement though until I give up on this tower. Stranger things have happened.

Time for someone or some people to go and ask what the deal is

Maybe not dead, but if they are introducing new convertible floor plans at this point something about their mix wasn't working.

The website doesn't look like it was updated to show where these units are, but I would be curious to see just how many of these presumably smalller and cheaper units there are and what was cut to make room for them. The unit count must have gone up too then, right?
