THE TIDES


I'm getting a little tired of all of the blue glass.

I feel the same way. I suppose it is an "improvement" over the Shoreham but still....
The skyline is going to be so blue in a few years. Maybe I'll have a change of heart for projects like 4th Presbyterian by then.

It looks better than Shoreham; hopefully Lowenberg leaves it alone this time.

Is it another phase of townhouses on the left of the Tides?

This building is head and shoulders above the Shoreham in terms of aesthetic quality. The problem is this: the massing appears to be identical (right down the small cancerous growth of an annexed building to the east). So, now we have to ask... how ******* rediculous is it going to look to have two identical buildings that are simply skinned differently? I think this is a bigger mistake then just building an identical twin to the first piece of shit.

^I don't know. From the picture, it appears that the Tides will be taller than the Whoreham

Well, hopefully you're right... but, I would venture to guess that's a result of the perspective in the rendering.

The Chandler will probably begin construction tomorrow. I just came from the site, and Case Foundation are assymbling there cranes. There is already other material like rebar on the site and there's also casson tops and drill bits. I will go past the site again tomorrow.

That is good news. Now let's hope for the 80 story building to be unveiled soon.

From Sun-Times' David Roeder's tidbit:
OFFICE PERCH: In a case of developers moving closer to their progeny, Magellan Development Group Ltd. and Near North Properties Inc. are relocating to 25,000 square feet at 303 E. Wacker. The new spot gives them clear sight of their $4 billion Lakeshore East project under way north of Grant Park, so those subcontractors better look sharp. The allied firms, controlled by Joel Carlins and Jim Loewenberg, respectively, signed a five-year lease in a move from 1 W. Superior.

I would think Lowendberg (that mutated, yet apt moniker is copyright BVictor, I believe) would want his views to be far from the buildings he designs. I believe he lives on East Lake Shore. This is one architect who would never live in a building he designed.

The Chandler is now officially under construction. I just came back from the site, and caisson drilling is currently going on...

From the Inside Commercial Real Estate section in 11/16 Tribune's Business:
(Thomas A. Corfman):
Treasure Island signed 15-year lease for 27,000 sq ft in a proposed three-story, 85,000sq ft retail building. To be completed in the 3rd quarter of 2006, the retail center will be located just north of 340 N. Randolph.

^
Most important part of LSE, if you ask me. I was afraid they wouldn't get a grocery store within walking distance of all of those towers. I hope more retail is one the way, outside of this retail building. Isn't Target coming here?
Actually, a new Target would be awesome on Michigan, between Randolph and Wacker.

^ I am nervous that such a store wouldn't be well-integrated into the urban fabric.
