Barricades and fencing are up around the lot now too, more robust than just the typical chain link only kind.

Wouldn't be surprised if demo happens very soon

It's currently out to bid. Costly situation for the owner.

Don't expect to see much work for at least a month.

Maybe if all you know is that one image, sure, but in nearly any other way the one on the right is better.

I believe that is 320 N Sangamon - a 13 story office building with ground floor retail:

Pretty impressive in the dark - also pretty hard to get a good shot at night from a speeding El train.

Thanks Harry, believe it or not that was from Desplaines. The Jewel Osco parking lot was throwing a lot of ambient light and it was way too cold for me to walk out of my way to try and find a better angle haha.

I saw that in Curbed. It is a big improvement over the previous iteration. The earlier renderings looked to be more placeholder than actual final design, though.

This will hopefully sail through the various approval processes.

I very much prefer the new design.

I do too if it looks like the rendering. But the reality will be wavy, pillowy , dirt streaked grimy blue glass. It's a plague upon this city. Very few of these glass boxes spend the money for the good stuff.

You can thank the cheap window wall market for that.

I think this one has enough other projections to cast shadows, create close reflections (that are usually less distorted), and create a foreground element that is more prominent than the glass to counteract the effect of the glass reflections. I've noticed that it becomes most problematic when the building is primarily glass, all in one plane, and with only the slab cladding to provide any other visual effect.

My concern is how this this one meets the ground....otherwise the tower itself is pretty sharp.

Seconded. I've always been a fan of highly transparent glass in residential towers and the randomness introduced by blind treatments. Very much welcomed. My understanding though is that we've seen so much less of this in recent years because of something relatively new or amended in the building code, or a related ordinance related to energy efficiency when it comes to glazing. Someone or multiple folks explained it here before I believe, but can't recall the details.

Has the city - and metro region's - transit nexus jumped 2/3 mile west, past the expressway, in the last week or so, making this area desirable from an urban planning standpoint, to concentrate large scale office use? I could have missed it, being out of town. If so, than the circumstances have materially changed, and thus the assessment changes.

If not - then, yes of course. We'll do this.
