View from Clybourn



Realized that One Chicago (along with St. Regis), will terminate the view corridor down Clybourn. Nice dose of urbanism for what is a bit of an auto sewer.

Clybourn is one of the very few streets that has protected bike lanes and is four lanes at its widest. It is far from an auto sewer especially relative to many other arterial roads, and that's coming from someone who's violently anti-car.

EDIT: I should also add that it does seem desolate but that's because it runs through industrial and run down areas and just doesn't have much attractive development around it yet. The existing mix of buildings is pretty evenly split between going to the lot line and suburban strip malls, so there's definitely hope. The most pleasant stretch is around New City but that's because of the development not the street itself.

Does anyone have a view from Wrigley? Opening day shot from the scoreboard down Clark, it’s a new peak.

from this perspective.

About 125' or so remaining is my guesstimate.

I walked past this building today, it's so tall. Looks like they are starting on the third setback??

^ Thanks for sharing. Welcome to the forum.

With Flikr, only the "BBCode" works with the Insert Image tab here on SSP. Here's all you need to enter into the tab: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/...44c915fd_b.jpg

^ Nice angle

This tower would serve as a great “view terminator” building, but alas it is not situated as such for any streets.

I posted one a few pages back. But if you've got one that's better quality than what I took on my phone while at a stoplight, please share

There's actually an alleyway running between Ontario and Ohio, located just west of the Embassy Suites, that offers the view you're looking for (basically across from the Red Head Piano Bar). It's pretty sweet. I'll try to snap a pic next time I'm around there.
