Anna beat you to the punch my friend. I'm interested in this retail business. Since this is a continuation of the award winning Fairmont, I'm assuming it'll be something classy.

Oh, btw - for those who are interested. The Regatta should be topped at some point in the next two weeks (just my educated guess). Based on visual comparisons between it and the Shoreham (as well as The Parkshore) I would guess that what we're watching is the last floor. I haven't been over there in a few weeks to actually count, but, if someone could verify this, that would be great.

Might be a setback. Maybe we don't need a Super Target with a full service grocery store, but then again food is only a 1/3 or 1/4 of what Target sells. The rest is affordable clothing, furniture, some office supplies, and toys/electronics.

Merger

Lakeshore East Developers Carlins and Loewenberg Officially Merge


Last updated: February 16, 2006 11:04am

CHICAGO-Following years of collaboration, Magellan Development Group and NNP Residential & Development are forming a new corporate partnership under the Magellan name. The merged company and its affiliates are operating from their new headquarters at Three Illinois Center, 303 E. Wacker Dr.

Joel Carlins, president of Magellan, and James Loewenberg, head of NNP Residential & Development, will serve as co-chairmen of the new Magellan Development Group; David Carlins will assume the role of president. Magellan will continue to steer development activity, while the NNP Residential division of the new company will focus on property management and apartment marketing services. All Magellan and NNP Residential affiliates, including Loewenberg Architects, established by James Loewenberg's father and uncle in 1919, will continue to operate autonomously.

The partnership between Carlins and Loewenberg peaked with the development of Lakeshore East. The $4 billion, 28-acre mixed-use community is rising where the Chicago River meets Lake Michigan. Formerly an Illinois Central rail yard and shipping port, the site was briefly a nine-hole urban golf course. The Lakeshore East development plan allows for 10 million sf of properties, including up to 4,950 residences, a 6-acre public park, 2.2 million gross sf of commercial space, 1,500 hotel rooms, 770,000 sf of retail and a proposed elementary school.

Magellan's portfolio of condominium developments includes 21 West Chestnut Place; the Park Newberry; 630 North State Parkway; the Farallon; 600 North State Street; Admiral's Pointe; the Caravel; and the Park Alexandria. NNP's portfolio of condominium and apartment developments during the past 25 years includes State Place Condominiums; 2555 North Clark Street; Gold Coast Galleria; Landmark on the Lake in Milwaukee; One East Delaware Place; 1212 North LaSalle Street; and Ontario Place. Together, the two companies developed the Grand Plaza, Park Millennium; One Superior Place; and Dearborn Place rental communities.

Neither Carlins nor Loewenberg could be reached for comment by press time.

^ I was always hoping for more boutique stores there anyhow. I mean seriously, does every neighborhood have to have a Target and Home Depot?

Lakeshore East Update: AQUA

I found this on one of the chicago architecture websites that look at occassionally. Its not much, and unfourtanetly there is no rendering as of yet but its still better than nothing.

Designed by: Studio/Gang/Architects
Construction Start: 2006
Construction Completed: 2009
Type: Skyscraper
Stories: 80
Maximum Height: 943 feet / 287 meters
(including spires, antennae, etc...)
Location: Columbus Drive at East South Water Street
Area: The Loop
Post Code: 60601
City: Chicago
Country: Illinois

>The details of this building are still being worked out. It is expected to be between 80 and 85 stories.

> This building is expected to have a Fairmont Hotel occupying the first 40 floors. It remains to be seen if it will be linked to the existing Fairmont Hotel across the street. The nearby Hyatt hotel spans several blocks this way, so it is a possibility that one large hotel will be formed, instead of two separate hotels or the Fairmont simply moving across the street.

I hope i cited the source correctly, i'm still very new to this

Thanks, Frankie, and welcome aboard.

According to BVictor1 (a main sleuth for Chicago forumers), more info on Aqua may be released in April. We must be patience, though April is somewhat far away.

The digging occured on the empty lot where the Tides will be built on. It looks like the site prep is underway.

chi-coruscant:
it's not site prep that you see at the Tides site, they're pot-holing (civil engineers are checking soil content, bearing, capacity, etc)
