For those of you keeping track, they started dismantling the crane attached to The Chandler yesterday (Sunday, April 1).

Coincidentally, on the same day a giant new crane was delivered to Block 37.

I wonder if the stock market had not crashed and they did build many or all of thoes buildings as shown in the model. By now perhaps many of the building would have been demolished to may way for bigger and better projects. Who knows if that project had been existant the AON Building my not be where it sits today it may be located some where else in the city or sad to say non-existant. Things happen for a reason as they say.

Parkhomes

Anybody have any idea when these may get started? Will they be a tough sell? I think they are expensive but because there are only a few in a quite unique location, they will likely be sucessful. I can see new highrise residents in LSE actually moving there..citing that highrise living wasn't as fabulous as they imagined.

In any event, I'd love to see them done so that the park will look more complete. Not to mention, the Parkhomes will cover up several of those blank concrete walls on the newer buildings.

Parkhomes should be breaking ground by the end of the month & be completed by next summer. Only about 4 parkhomes left. They sold very well.

Thanks for the excellent news. Once the Parkhomes are in place, along with the market, the neighborhood may actually start to feel like one.

I think the luckiest people in LSE are the residents of the original towers(Outer East Drive, Harbor Point) that will now be able to take advantage of the brand new neighborhood and all the increased amenities. Think how fortunate the owners of the less desirable "city view" condos are now since they have a nice view of a gorgeous new park.

I'm curious as to why these townhomes sold so much better than the at-grade equivalents in River East. There are still a few of those remaining years after the fact, if I'm not mistaken.

I think, along with the new LSE park, basically LSE is more accessible to DT and closer to Millenium Park.

Well, I agree with those sentiments, but, it surprises me that John-Q suburbanite would. They usually wanna be north of the river.

why is the marketplace information so scanty at this point? i was under the impression that t.i. was going to open soon and that the project was under construction. why are they keeping the wraps on it compared to other LSE news???

There were some hardhats out there on Monday sizing up the place. They didn't have any surveying or other equipment with them. They looked more like middle managers than workers.

You are correct. There's a sign for it there.

Townhomes...

There is movement below Outer Drive East. This was taken from our Sun Deck, looking at the area directly below our pool. Will be interesting if they are going to be taller than they SAID they would be. The town homes were to be no taller than the floor of our pool deck (they swore they would be 7 stories or less so that we would still have a view of the park from our pool), but now I hear that our condo association has lawyers reminding them of this fact. I'm just glad that they are starting this project, as the huge expanse of blank walls around the bases of our surrounding buildings just looks terrible from that beautiful park. At least THAT problem will be rectified with Treasure Island to the West, and now the Town homes on the East, beautifying the bases of ODE, The Buckingham and 340.
