I think this school discussion is going nowhere. From what I have heard, the school will not be placed in the park - possibly in the corner between the Lancaster and the Shoreham. Nothing has been decided at all regarding the school.

In case you don't know:
Regatta is 94% sold. The new residents will move in by mid 2006.

agreed. and there is definitely a good chance that the school site was removed from the Harbor Park to show the park configuration upon completion, as opposed to how it would look at a much later date with a school. Although I originally raised the issue of a connection between map and school, I was by no means implying I thought there was. I was just curious about the map's exclusion.

Glad for that to be over

That's awesome news about the Regatta! LSE sales continue to amaze me.

With this observation I too am in agreement. It would be better to have the school placed somewhere outside the confines of LSE that would be easily accessible to a wider, more mixed population of students; it reminds me of the stultifying effect of the schools built within the precincts of the former CHA projects. That said, I'm stumped as to where one would locate any K_12 school downtown.

There are tons of loft buildings in River North that I think would make fantastic candidates. They're all well-served by public, they're in a very safe area and I certainly think that if the demand isn't quite there yet, it will be shortly.

I think that I have some news that you all would like to know. Hopefully this Thursday, I will be going to see my old professor, Mark Schendel, who is married to Jeanne Gang and he's going to give me the rundown on the tower the're designing in Lakeshore East.

Oh, and by the way, he told me that the building's not 70-stories... It's 80 stories

Have a good day...

80 stories tall???? If I am not mistaken, that tower will be 900ft tall. It should be designated as a flagship tower of the LSE.

Okay, well I went to the Studio/Gang Architects offices today. First, and I can't believe that I'm actually saying this, but I must thank Mr. Lowenberg, because he's the one who picked Studio Gang, they didn't approach him.

I got a chance to look at the project, and it was explaind to me by one of the architects. Unfortunately, I can not tell you all of the details that this time. I was asked to keep the design on the DL, and I told them that I would keep my mouth shut about the design. I will tell you thought that you will be extremely pleased. The design is quite promising. It will be tall, I already told you that it would be about 80-stories, but I can't give you the exact height yet, but i'm sure that you all know how to guestimate. The tower will be north of BCBS.

You all won't have to wait that long for more information. This is the next building that will be released. I was told that I would be kept up-to-date on the building. They also said, that they wouldn't mind going a bit taller. Also they might set up an interview between myself and James Lowenberg, that should be interesting..... I'll let you know more about that, if and when it happens, so that I can get some imput.

Other than that, as I said, you will, I think, like the design, but that's all that I can say at the moment. When I get permission to leak more information, I will.

Oh-My-God, that's exactly what my former professor said. I take it all in stride, I'm having a blast doing all of this stuff.

Couple of months? *groan*

I have to wait for the renderings of Calatrava, Mandarin Oriental, and this Gang.

I don't think I have few more months to live.

BTW, you never cease to amaze me with your sleuth works. Keep it up.

If the rumors are true around the job sites, McHugh (construction company) will be building the 80 storey building BVic is referring to. Although it is still being called a 76-77 storey around here.
