This spells the end for that block of Dearborn being anything more than a glorified alley for auto exit/entries, but hot damn I'll take it!

The loss of some of those lowrise buildings will be unfortunate, but if this goes forward as proposed then it's a huge improvement over that massive parking lot.

My only complaint is that I have always envisioned this lot having a small park/plaza facing Holy Name Cathedral. Too bad there is zero open space.

Yes I agree...it would be nice if they somehow incorporated a park that sat at the base of this grand tower..would be the perfect compliment for this building and area ... who knows still a possibility if alderman plays hardball and requests it

Here's an interesting point from the zoning app:

Quote:
The Applicant acknowledges and agrees that the rezoning ofthe Property from the DX-7 Downtown
Mixed-Use District to the DX-12 Downtown Mi.\ed-Use District
and then to this Planned
Development (PD) triggers the requirements of Section 2-45-115 of the Municipal Code of Chicago
(Affordable Requirements Ordinance or ARO). Any developer of a residential housing project within
the meaning ofthe ARO must: (i) set aside 10% of the housing units in the residential housing project
(Required Units) as affordable units, or with the Commissioner ofthe Department of Planning and
Development's (DPD) approval, provide the Required Units in an approved off-site location; (ii) pay
a fee in lieu of the development of the Required Units; or (iii) any combination of (i) and (ii);
provided, however, that residential housing projects with 20 or more units must provide at least 25%
ofthe Required Units on-site or off-site. If the developer elects to provide affordable units off-site,
the off-site affordable units must be located within a two-mile radius from the residential housing
project and in the same or a different higher income area or downtown district. The Property is
located in a downtown district within the meaning of the ARO and the project has a total of 914 units.
As a result, the Applicant's affordable housing obligation is 91 affordable units (10% of 914, rounded
down), 23 of which are Required Units (25% of 91, rounded up).

There are 3 facade contractors on the project with different start times all before the 1st of June.

This project must take the cake for most city altering/gap filling project this cycle. This transforms the entire near north side.

Anyone know the deal with the inclined ramps on along the south elevation about three or four levels up?
Looks like parking ramps but I assumed that was all below grade?

Green (Vinyl coated) re-bar is almost always used for parking facilities.

There are nearly 1,100 parking spaces from LL4 to L7. You are correct that those are parking ramps.

I'm assuming that JDL does not own the property and was either unable or uninterested in acquiring it and thus had to plan around it.

Probably some hard-knock landlord who wouldn't budge a damn bit, even if given a huge incentive. Sometimes you get those folks. The ones that just don't want to sell no matter what. As eminent domain isn't an option, they gotta deal with it unfortunately.

Its been a while since I have been there but that small building referred to here is a restaurant. One of the few in that area that stays open all night if memory serves correctly. Kind of a late night gathering spot after a night of bar hopping. It always felt safe... was a fun, lively little place and the food was good. So long as it does not interfere with development of this supertall, keeping the restaurant in the neighborhood could turn out to be a good thing. Spots like these add something to the urban experience.

Just a tad bit on the parcel parameters. A beefy tower, probally the likes of Vista with that sq-footage. Chunky base. From the app:

Permitted floor area ratio (FAR):

Quote:
The maximum permitted floor area ratio (FAR) for the Property shall be in accordance with the
attached Bulk Regulations and Data Table. For the purpose of FAR calculations and measurements,
the definitions in the Zoning Ordinance shall apply. The permitted FAR identified in the Bulk
Regulations and Data Table has been determined using a net site area of 96,218 square feet and a base
FAR of 12
