CA doesnt exactly put out inspiring designs, would call this one efficient looking. Reminds me of Arkadia in the west loop.

The previous Mandarin Oriental proposal was to be 74 floors with 250 hotel rooms. So unfortunately it looks like the 45 is more likely.

Oh for sure!

the 45 floors/583' height figures came straight from the ever-reliable fount of insider chicago skyscraper info, bombardier.

You can take that shit straight to the bank.

Are you sure they can build a 45/583 with that amount of mixed- used units at that location for 100 million dollars. hmmmm?

Just as a point of reference: The total estimated cost of all the permits for NEMA new construction was around $305M. For Wolf Point West it was $105M. At $100M estimated cost, if that's correct, this thing is definitely not going to be 74 floors unless they cheap the hell out of it - or that estimated cost is wrong. I'm going with the under 50 floors though based on that cost which isn't optimal. Obviously better than what's there right now, but could be a bit taller.

Thanks Steely! The rendering on page 1 is the current design. The design documents are on the street for subcontractor pricing now.

Updated the floors/height based upon blueprint elevations. . .

Floors above street level = 47
Floors below street level = 5
Height = 502' - 2"
Average residential floor height = 9' - 8"

. . .

hmmmm, they squeezed 80 feet out of this one compared to the drawings bombardier reported seeing a little while ago.

it doesn't matter much. whether 583' or 502', this one was never going to have much skyline presence either way.

Those are like 1960 floor heights if that is the height... Unless they are excluding the 50+ feet that area below grade, which is confusing to me, since from anywhere other than those elevated roads it would have that height.

Regardless, happy this one is progressing. That lot has going is huge.

Read a Tribune article that mentioned that ground should break in Q1 2020. I checked and this actually has a pending foundation permit as well. Mid/late January start?

Glad that this lot is getting filled but so depressing to think what could have been. Mandarin Oriental was one of my favorites that got shot down in the collapse. Does anybody know if Mandarin is planning on anything in Chicago in the near future? Has any hotel been picked for Vista yet?

an interesting note in the tribune story about an old subway right of way on this site that has to be purchased from the city.

a holdover from the 1968 plan to remove the loop's elevated tracks and replace with subway lines: https://www.chicago-l.org/plans/CUTD.html
