SUBURBS PRODUCE LARGE MAJORITY OF BUYERS AT BOOMING NEW LAKESHORE EAST COMMUNITY
June 20, 2006

By a majority of nearly 2-to-1, suburbanites are outnumbering city-based buyers flocking to the blossoming new Lakeshore East community on the New East Side with out-of-staters logging in 15 percent of total sales.

A demographic breakdown of the first five luxury condominium towers completed, under development or being pre-construction marketed in the new neighborhood near the confluence of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River with a combined total of 1,449 residences reveals:

• 690 purchasers, or 55 percent of the total, come from Chicago suburbs
• Another 391 or 30 percent are from the city
• 165 or 15 percent are from out of state
• Another 3 are from outside the United States (Canada, Italy and Singapore)


“While sales from the city remain strong, we find interesting a subtle shift of the proportion from the suburbs and out-of-state buyers as the community has evolved,” observed David Carlins, president of Magellan Development Group, LLC, the developer of Lakeshore East.

The first completed and occupied condominium tower in the community is The Lancaster, a 29-story structure designed by Loewenberg Architects with 209 residences. Nearing completion sold-out with first occupancy scheduled for August is The Regatta. Designed by DeStefano + Partners Inc., the 44-story building contains 325 residences.

Two condominiums under construction are The Chandler and 340 on the Park.

The 35-story The Chandler, with 304 residences, was also designed by DeStefano + Partners. It is 90 percent sold and initial occupancy is projected for 2007.

340 on the Park, a joint venture of LR Development Co. and Magellan, is under construction at 340 E. Randolph. Sales at the 348-unit, 62-story tower designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz & Associates are at the 80% level with occupancy also projected for 2007.

The newest addition to Lakeshore east is Aqua, a unique 80-story mixed-use skyscraper uniquely designed by award-winning architect Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang. The Aqua marketing program was launched April 8 and 66 percent of the luxury condominiums included in the building's design have been reserved

Aqua, which will be the tallest and most distinctive residential building in downtown Chicago, will be the first high-rise in the city designed uniquely to combine condos, rental, hotel and retail spaces in a single structure. It is also believed to be the tallest building ever designed by an architectural firm headed by a woman.
While 21 other states have produced buyers at Lakeshore East, the Midwestern states of Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin are joined by sunshine states California and Florida and New York City as the most popular non-Illinois purchasers.

Lakeshore East is evolving as a mixed-use lifestyle center where people can live, work, shop, eat and pursue whatever interests them without having to get into a car.

The plan that completes the ambitious Illinois Center development allows for the construction of up to 4,950 residences, a magnificent 6-acre public park, 2.2 million gross square feet of commercial space, 1,500 hotel rooms, 770,000 square feet of retail space and a proposed elementary school.

Some 40 percent of the site will remain vibrant open space. Among the award-winning Lakeshore East park’s many attractions is free Wi-Fi or wireless broadband Internet access. Other park amenities include a children’s play park, a gated dog park, a large open meadow, water fountains, ornamental gardens and extensive seating.

Residential developments at Lakeshore East, in addition to the condominium properties, currently include The Shoreham, a completed and occupied 46-story apartment tower with 548 residences and the 51-story The Tides, the community’s second rental property with 607 luxury units. It also is under construction. And the first phase of Parkhomes at Lakeshore East, an enclave of 24 gracious and distinctive single-family homes bordering the new award-winning public park, is in the final design stage and expected to be brought to market by summer 2006.

LAKESHORE EAST LAUNCHES SALES OF DISTINGUISHED PARKHOMES

Magellan Development Group has begun sales of the highly anticipated Parkhomes that form a new neighborhood at Lakeshore East, an emerging village in the heart of downtown Chicago steps from Michigan Avenue.

The grouping of 24 residences at the southeast sector of the $4 billion, 28-acre mixed-use development boasts a unique opportunity for single-family living with park and select lake views in downtown Chicago.

A collaboration of The Steinberg Group of San Jose, CA as design consultants and Loewenberg Architects has created a blend of brick, stone, wrought iron and copper highlights that Loewenberg Chairman Jim Loewenberg says is an innovative concept for Chicago.

A trio of design plans with private, attached parking ranges in size from 2,921 to 3,956 square feet of elegant living space, ranging in price from approximately $1.7 million to $2.5 million

One grouping includes 10 three-story homes with rooftop terraces that contain from 3,565 to 3,956 square feet of living area. Optional private elevators are available.

A second design format consists of 12 three-story plans with balconies and terraces combined in a seven-story building, ranging in size from 3,355 to 3,909 square feet.

Rounding out the design portfolio is a pair of luxurious single-level penthouses featuring private terraces atop the seven-story building.
They provide 2,921 or 2,923 square feet of living area with views of Lake Michigan and the award-winning park at the nucleus of Lakeshore East.

“There is absolutely nothing in downtown Chicago that compares with these Parkhomes,” declared Tricia Van Horn, vice president of sales and marketing.

The Parkhomes present a sumptuous portfolio of features and finishes from expansive park and lake views to space expanding 10-foot living and dining room ceilings and 9-foot ceilings in bedrooms and family rooms. Standard are designer-style recessed lighting, individually controlled year-round heating and air conditioning and wiring for high speed Internet and Cable TV.

Finishes, for example, range from stained-on site oak flooring and staircases to marble in the foyer, luxury carpeting in designated living areas, crown molding in living, dining and master bedroom areas and natural granite windowsills. And much more.

Gourmet kitchens offer a choice of Snaidero or Fieldstone premium designer cabinetry, natural granite countertops and backsplashes, Hans-Grohe designer European-style fixtures, Franke undermount stainless steel sinks and a stainless steel appliance package that includes a SubZero refrigerator, Miele fully-integrated dishwasher, Wolf double-oven with separate cooktop and Wolf built-in microwave oven.

Continuing the parade of delights, the master suite includes a Closet Works organizational closet system and a choice of Snaidero or Fieldstone premium designer cabinetry and a luxurious master bath with marble flooring, vanity top and Jacuzzi whirlpool spa bathtub surround, stone shower base, frameless vanity wall mirrors, and Hans-Grohe designer European fixtures with Kohler sinks.

Parkhome owners also receive a complimentary one-year membership to the Mid-America Club at the nearby Aon Center.

A village in the heart of downtown Chicago steps from Michigan Avenue, Lakeshore East spans 28 acres, believed to be the largest parcel of downtown land under development in a major U.S. city. This $4 billion mixed-use development in the rapidly-growing New East Side incorporates all the elements of a traditional city neighborhood, a lifestyle center that includes homes, retail, recreational opportunities and community amenities such as a lush public park and a planned charter elementary school.

Across the street from the city’s acclaimed new Millennium Park, Lakeshore East is a preview of the future, a mixed-use development where people can live, work, shop, eat and pursue whatever interests them without having to get into a car.

The plan that completes the ambitious Illinois Center development allows for the construction of up to 4,950 residences, a magnificent 6-acre public park, 2.2 million gross square feet of commercial space, 1,500 hotel rooms, 770,000 square feet of retail space and a proposed charter elementary school.

Some 40 percent of the site will remain vibrant open space. Among the centerpiece park’s many attractions is free Wi-Fi or wireless broadband Internet access. Other park amenities include a children’s’ play park, a gated dog park, a large open meadow, water fountains, ornamental gardens and extensive seating. In addition, a series of smaller parks with special designs and water features will be added to the community.

Now this is great news! The townhomes along with the park bring generous low rise and open space to such a dense development. LSE is in a class by itself!

Sorry for the crappy formatting

From New Homes

Lakeshore East
A diverse community built byan all-star cast of architects


Aside from pursuing its mission to create a distinguished
"village within a city," Lakeshore East developer
Magellan Development Group has assembled an all-star
cast of architects to assure its future as an icon of architectural
diversity in a city known for great architecture.
"It has been one of our paramount goals that the
architecture of Lakeshore East should represent a diversity
of innovative architecture and not dominated by one
or two firms,"
stated Joel M. Carlins, Magellan co-CEO.
The master plan for the 28-acre, $4 billion mixed-use
complex where the Chicago River meets Lakes
Michigan, designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill
(SOM), has already received a prestigious National
Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects
for excellence in urban design.
"We aim to perpetuate that recognition as an obligation
to produce diverse, high-quality architecture,"
added co-CEO Jim Loewenberg
, who is also president
of Loewenberg Architects,
architects and is overseeing
the incorporation of various
design firms into the
Lakeshore East community.
“The incorporation of
these various architectural
talents into the overall
community has been an
exciting challenge.
"We have been careful
to assure the quality of
each aspect of Lakeshore
East's design and architecture,"
said Carlins.

“Under Skidmore Owings and Merrill's direction the award-winning six acre Park, which is the lush centerpiece of the community, has been designed by James Burnett and Associates, an internationally-renowned landscape architectural firm with offices in Houston and Los Angeles. Site Design Group of Chicago was hired to work with Burnett to implement the design of the park, as well as other landscape design features of the community."

Here are other examples of Lakeshore East's impressive architectural lineup:

■ Aqua. The 80-story Aqua is Chicago’s first highrise
specifically created to comprise elegant condominiums,
luxury rentals, hotel suites and retail spaces.
Revolutionary in both design and function, Aqua has
been described by architectural critics as “dazzling” and
“possibly Chicago’s most sensuous skyscraper” and “a
new kind of skyscraper that heralds a new kind of
Chicago architecture, one of the most striking buildings
in the city.”

■ The Lancaster. The Lancaster, the completed,
award-winning luxury condominium tower designed by
Loewenberg Architects utilizes a glass curtain wall and
features an adjacent stairwell structure for the building
that incorporates both a health club and unique glass
elevator, as well as a walkway for the structure.

■ Parkhomes. The Steinberg Group, based in San
Jose, Ca., is the designer of a remarkable cluster of
attached single- family Parkhomes to be built in the
southeast quadrant of the site facing the park. The
award-winning firm is utilizing a combination of materials
including brick, stone, wrought iron and copper
highlights that Loewenberg says will be an innovative
concept for Chicago. Parkhome designs include rooftop
terraces, two-story living rooms, country kitchens and
one-of-a-kind entries among their features and provide
a unique opportunity for single-family living with park
and select lake views in downtown Chicago.

■ 340 on the Park. Chicago's Solomon Cordwell and
Buenz is the architect who designed the luxurious 340
On the Park condominium building being developed in
partnership with LR Development at the southwest corner of the site between the Blue Cross/Blue Shield headquarters
building and Buckingham condominiums.
Martin Wolf leads the design team. Preliminary
designs for the 61-story structure feature a unique
curved glass curtain wall system. Carlins calls it a
world-class structure and "a prize building that will be
heralded in Chicago."

■ The Regatta. The Regatta, the community’s second
completed condominium tower bordering Wacker
Drive at the north end of the community and encompassing
views of the river, Lake Michigan, the park and
Chicago's downtown skyline, was designed by James
DeStefano and Associates.

■ The Shoreham. Loewenberg Architects has generated
the design for The Shoreham, the community's
first rental building with some 550 residences. The final
design incorporates a variety of materials and elements
including floor-to-ceiling windows and a glass top, notes
Loewenberg. The Loewenberg team also designed The
Tides, the community’s second luxury rental tower now
under construction. The 51-story structure will include
608 residences ranging from studios to two-bedroom
designs in an array of 30 floor plans.


Lakeshore East will be a blend of 17 residential and
commercial structures that Loewenberg describes as "a
unique and exciting real estate development opportunity
unrivaled in the United States, if not the world.
Lakeshore East is a preview of the future, a neighborhood
where people can live, work, shop, eat and
pursue whatever interests them without having to get
into a car.
The plan allows for the construction of up to
4,950 residences, its magnificent 6-acre public park, 2.2
million gross square feet of commercial space, 1,500
hotel rooms, 770,000 square feet of retail space and the
proposed charter elementary school.


---------------

So they're saying that one or two firms won't dominate - does that mean no more Loewenberg trash in LSE? Let's hope so.

They had a nice small rendering of Aqua though

I was in Lakeshore East Park last night and saw that Magellan erected a sign for the Park homes. They look really impressive and will finish off the South East side of the park covering the empty space along Harbor and the Ugly parking garage of ODE. While the Back side of the Regatta looked bland the Lancaster, Shoreham and 340 looked good. I'm not an architect but it looks like they are trying to make the area unique. After Aqua and Tides, the only areas left around the perimeter of the park are West of the Tides and North of BCBS. Does anyone know what they are projecting for those areas?

The saving grace behind Aqua is the ultra-efficient and economic minimalist structure behind the skin. It can be built quickly, beautifully, and have a positive effect skyline effect.

These days in America, it is the insight of the economists that make big things possible.
I take comfort that Loewenberg wouldn't be doing any further drawing for the next high-rise.

Er... The cul-de-sac end of wacker is simply the end of the upper deck, whereas the lower deck continues beyond. Are they saying that the building will be built over Wacker's lower deck? Or will the building be to the south of wacker, but front onto the cul-de-sac?

BTW, am I the only one who thinks that Upper Wacker should be extended out to LSD?

One of the greatest drawbacks of LSE is its inaccessibility to the street grid. Are there any plans to integrate LSE into the grid?

Has anyone ever heard of plans to put townhomes or other kinds or residential on the river side of Wacker Dr. across from LSE? Or is that footprint entirely too small?

Seriously, Spyguy--do you have a magic hat?

Where the f#$k do you find this shit? All I know is this--I'm glad you're on our side.

Oh, and the parkhomes are going to make a WORLD of difference. While I'd prefer a more progressive design, it's still gonna look great
