It's a surface parking lot.

The corner sucks. When I wlak down Wabash at night here, I am lucky to see a warm body. There are surface lots on 3 corners and the NEC is the CNA building. I hope this kicks off development in this area, but I have a feeling it will ultimately be more development for the schools with DePaul and Robert Morris right there as well.

Can you imagine rolling out of bed and into class within about 2 minutes? So much time I've wasted doing such silly things as walking 20 minutes to class.

J/K - I really like this idea for a verticle school! I'm just afraid that this may cause some students to literally never leave this building for days (if not weeks) on-end. Is there a park nearby that students can visit?

^ I kind of wonder why Roosevelt built that Schaumburg campus.

They should have focused on one locale for their University, and being that they already were established downtown, should have made that their place of choice.

^Because not everyone gets a college degree by living away from home for four years. A lot of kids—especially first-generation Americans and first-in-the-family college attendees—live at home for at least part of their college careers. Others must work while they're in school. Roosevelt asks, at every graduation, for those who are the first in their family to go to college to stand. The response brings a tear to the eye.

Roosevelt also offers MBAs and other graduate degrees in Schaumburg, where they can be convenient to the suburban office workers. Its new pharmacy program will only be offered in Schaumburg.

This new building fronts the west side of the block (on Wabash Ave). On the east side of the block is Michigan Ave and then Grant Park. So yes, students will definitely have a park to visit.

Sweet. I love it when they do renderings from unusual angles, instead of the wide shots that show the full-height building in all of its glory... This style really captures how the average citizen will see and experience the new building far better than a skyline shot.

On the other hand... WTF is with that party wall? Somebody forgot to fix the UV mapping.

If you mean the red party wall, that's the current color of the west wall of the Buckingham Bldg.

They are probably saving money by building now.
We then only FOUR underconstruction projects now?
Atleast in the highrise category.
Very slow. But atleast not dead

yea i agree, I wish/hope developers pick up the pace by next year. There's still 3 parts that need major development that's being ignored (like River North along LaSelle st., majority of the South Loop from Roosevelt to Van buren, & down by Chinatown...)

I think it would like more appealing if it was another 100ft higher

So will this rank 2nd to University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning, in terms of academic building height?

Cathedral of Learning 42 fl - 535ft.
Roosevelt Univ tower 32 fl - 469 ft.

I love tall buildings, but I would have just hoped for an additional 31 feet to get it up to 500 feet. Oh well. I'm still excited for this glassy highrise (save for the north face of it... hopefully another highrise will rise directly next to it soon).
