Wait, you mean that when they finish painting the outside of building, that doesn't end it's time as "under construction."?

^I think a building just west of the Regatta and a ~70 story building on the north west portion of the site just south of the fire station. The latter is to be designed by Janine Gang.

I believe that a 70+ story building is planned on Columbus Drive just north of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Building. The thing is, I don't know if this is one of the parcels that was sold off ro not, not that it matters. The building it think is being designed by Studio Gang

I'm trying to make an appointment with them to learn more on the project.

Will this be the 1st major highrise in Chicago designed by a woman?

Not sure if you guys already saw the updated LSE map involving Chandler and East Village Market. If you have, my apology.

Interesting map: for the first time, the market place has a name (East Village Market) and a shape, but the CPS school has disappeared from the park (does this mean that CPS has some questions about this project?).

I wonder when more information will be released on the market place...what a great location; it should be able to draw from LSE condos and rowhouses and the surrounding downtown areas. I wonder if East village Market is the real name, or just the name they're working with at the present.

The area has a long way to go before it reaches the population levels necessary for a new school. Lots of families need to move in as well. Seems like a lot of the condo buyers are empty-nesters, retired couples or single people. I wouldn't say it is scrapped at this point but realistically, I don't forsee any school being built for at least 10 years (assuming no other major projects get built in the area).

I don't think that the school has been scrapped, but I do know that the developer wants to move it out of the park, becaause he feels tht the park should remain whole. I agree with that. I think that they were thinking of placing the school between The Lancaster and The Shorham. They should just incorporate the school into the base of one of the towers and be done with it.

I walked through the park for the first time last week. The developer is probably on the right track in regards to moving the school out of the park. It seems like the park would seem too small with a school in the NE corner of it. Moving it into the base of one of the towers is a great idea.

This alteration stinks to high heaven, placing future developer promises in jeopardy. As a teacher of some 44 years, a school for many reasons needs its own presence. If the mayor had reneged on this school plan, the Chicago press would be spluttering their customary righteous indignation, it's what sells their third rate product.
