Oh, I see what he was talking about.

I meant, doesn't the Shorham have the highest vacancy rate of all the projects? The point is that it is not having the same success as the other projects, therefore why would they build a second with the same design?

Well, I just came from the LakeshoreEast sales center, and the article above about a mirror to the Shoreham seems to be true, unfortunately I don't know if it's going to be "exactly" the same. I was told at the sales center, that they would be aapling for the construction permit within the next 30-60 days.

The somewhat good news is that the arch seems to still be apart of the project, though not in its original incarnation. I have no idea what it's going to look like.

oooooh Jimmy, just when we thought you had redeemed yourself!

I hate to wish so much ill on ol' Jimmy Loewenberg (or do I) but I wish someone would do a hatchet piece on him. It would be great -- "The Most Prolific Bad Architect in the City of Architecture." They could debate: is it pure avarice? Does he really have the ability to design, but out of sheer greed, he has decided to pull out cheap crap to penny pinch as much as possible? Does he see himself as a businessman and not an architect? Is he the Hetty Green of architecture? Or is he just REALLY bad at design, and greedy? I wish someone could dig out his portfolio from architecture school, if he indeed did graduate from an architecture program, and didn't just take a correspondence course. I can imagine his presentation, as he bragged to the teacher how much money the project would save.


I mean, he's been around for ever -- wasn't his father an architect too, from whom he took over the practice? I can only imagine him in his office, thinking of all the ways he can save money -- "oh I'll put two of the same design there... h a ha ha hah a, excellent! " The guy probably spends more time checking his investment portfolio than he does actually at work designing anything.

Does anyone know the price range of condos in the Chandler?

The cheapest units in the building (studio) were in the $180,000.00 range. . . they required $10,000.00 down at contract. . . I told them they were crazy. . .

I was at the sales center the other day, they told me they were all out of studios and single bedrooms. I think whatever they had left started in the mid 300s.

The LSE website now has a new message for the townhomes. Looks like these are going to get started pretty soon:

Design plans are in the final completion stages for The Parkhomes that will border Lakeshore East's magnificent 6-acre park. Reservations are now being accepted for these charming, distinctively styled homes. Please call us at (312) 540-9891 for more information

Any new news on this one? The Gang building? What's happening with the school? Is the beautiful arch still going to be there?

You know if there was news on the Gang building that it would have been posted here. The school will be built eventually, currently there's not enough money for it, and it will go between The Lancaster and The Shoreham. The arch is still a possibility, but it might be a bit different, there is no definite information on the arch at this time.


I have some updated images of The Regatta.


Workers installing duct work within the building 2005-9-6


Brick being installed on the low-rise portion of The Regatta - 2005-9-13


Decorative brickwork being placed at the base of The Regatta along Wacker Drive - 2005-9-13


A view to the southwest from lower Lake Shore Drive - 2005-9-20


Windows being installed on the first level - 2005-9-20



Also, yesterday I noticed that there was a soil drilling rig on the land directly west of The Shoreham. I'm sure that they are drilling for the unfortunate ShorehamII

Cool. Great updates (except about #2...ugh). I'm happy that the possibility of an arch still exists. Also, I sent you a PM about a week or two ago.

From the September edition of Midwest Construction

Building News - September 2005

Work Starts on 35-Story Condo

Fifth Tower to Rise in Lakeshore Development

$146M Chandler tower part of Chicago's Lakeshore East development
(09/01/2005)



Ground was recently broken for the $146 million The Chandler condominium, the fifth high rise in the Lakeshore East development in Chicago.

The 35-story high-rise offers 286 luxury residences priced from $192,000 for a 582-sq.-ft. studio to $1.7 million for a 3,215-sq.-ft. three-bedroom unit.

The tower - designed by Chicago-based DeStefano + Partners, with interiors by Chicago-based Loewenberg Architects - will feature The Shore Club, including a fitness facility with an indoor rooftop pool, two landscaped rooftop decks, private party room and media room. Concierge services will be provided. Retail space totaling 10,000 sq. ft. and a private parking facility will round out the property.

Chicago-based James McHugh Construction Co. is serving as the general contractor.

The $4 billion mixed-use Lakeshore East development is expected to reach completion in about 10 years
