^That last rendering is just spectacular. If they can manage to actually make the facade look like that, it'll be amazing!

Late News: High-end hotel eyed for Lakeshore East

From the Monday, May 15 issue of Crain's

High-end hotel eyed for Lakeshore East
Strategic Hotels & Resorts wants to build a 200-room hotel in the Lakeshore East development, south of the Chicago River and east of Columbus Drive, says CEO Laurence Geller. He says the Chicago-based REIT, which owns the Fairmont and InterContinental, aims to flag the hotel with "one of the very high luxury brands of the world," and is talking to Magellan Development Group, developer of Lakeshore East. Magellan Co-CEO Joel Carlins says the project would include condos; he also is entertaining offers from other hotel developers. [Alby Gallun]

^If they weren't so cheap with the other sides, Regatta wouldn't look that bad at all.

Anyway, some more market renderings:

I been to LSE for the first time 2 months ago... I thought the little park was nice, but the view is very interesting... the view of the Aon and 2 Pru is very unique!

Aqua is going to have an outdoor deck area that rivals Lake Point Tower's in size. What could warrant one building to have that much open space on such high priced land.

Don't get me wrong; I don't see this as a negative at all...just surprising.

Tight space aside, does the retail component seem a bit cold and uninviting and at counter trends to the type of retail construction currently happening nationally today?

What is that trend nationally? Every city I go to they all have different styles....The national trend has been towards big huge parking lots and "life centers". Well you know how I feel about cars. Look at the nice wide side walk. A park on the opposite side. Trees on the side walk. Glass windows at street level making it so inviting to the pedestrians.

Nope this looks GREAT. And unless it is downtown SF or NYC I don't want to follow any national trends.

If I'm right, and that is a big if, that part of the structure is being built on air rights over an existing structure (I think it is another ComEd substation?). So it is either cover it up, or have your owners/hotel visitors looking out over this little ugly building.

that would be a most obvious explanation. Thanks!
