You dont have to do anything else on this board. Youre new to the forum and you pull this out your hat. This is one of the biggest anticipated project rendering or such we've nerds been waiting for along with Mandarin and 830 South Michigan. We can wait for those. Relax and chill brotha.

Good job King. Guess I have to come out with Mandarin now. Maybe sometime this week I'll do it under a different name or email me someone else to post.

If you do, this would be one of the biggest weeks for proposals and news ever.

Also, that model of LSE is scary. 340 looks like a TMNT, not the beauty that it is now.

Wow, this entire development is just amazing. Most everything in there has "Chicago Style" written all over it. King, you're the best!

Thanks guys,

Woulda posted this weeks ago if I wasn't trying to figure it out myself, duh!
Anyways, I think it was last year sometime that I "broke" the news about the naming of the Chandler, they have now started drilling caissons and poured grade beams.

I'll scrounge around for rendering of the Treasure Island retail area, and the town-homes that are surrounding the park. I know those have been through numerous revisions.

You're not going to get in trouble for doing all of this are you? That is the last thing we would want.

Yeah so am I.

Please, no one make any threads about this outside of here unless it is OK with him or until it is officially released. I'll just pretend that this doesn't exist in my LSE thread too

Yes lets try and keep this as quiet as possible, the pics of the plans are especially "sensitive" since even the sales associates haven't been given copies or even marketing brochures yet.

Since we're on the topic, it was my understanding that the Mandarin Oriental was to occupy the first 40+ floors of Aqua!
Notice the transition floor about 2/3 up the model--that's where the hotel ends and the condos begin.

I think it was Fairmont according to both Crain's and another user (Anna). Makes sense since it is across the street basically.

whoops! i didn't know you were trying to keep this all on the DL. this info on aqua all got transferred over to SSP (as always happens between the two sites) and i made a new thread about this tower over there. i have deleted all of the plan shots from the SSP threads though. i apologize for not checking with you first.

once a cat like this gets outta the bag.................
