Taken from inside the park, facing Northeast. Anyone care to count all those balconies?


Tides:


Foundations for the townhouses. Shot from the bottom of the entry ramp via Randolph, facing East. The geodome swimming pool is directly above on the right. Could these be the parking garages? (they're not on the floorplans anywhere that I could see.)

I don't know if this is new news, but TI's website (the first time I've seen it working in a long while) says that they're opening in the LSE market in Spring of 2009.

The Tides might actually be Loewenberg's greatest accomplishment

I think The Tides is hideous. It kind of looks nice in the photos but in person it's awful. I walk by the building everyday and I just think it's ugly. I'm not ure exactly what it is but it doesn't seem to have the right amount of contrast. I think The Shoreham is a much better balanced building.

Nice shots. I know we have two floor markets. I can't imagine a three floor one though. I wonder if TI will be using the first two floors for the market and the top for other market-related activities (I know they do cooking classes at some of their locations). At any rate, having a full service, high end super market downtown south of the river is an incredible plus.

TI is only on the second floor. The first floors are mutliple smaller stores (probably can be combined though), and I'm guessing they're trying for an outdoor cafe/restaurant on the top.

Where exactly will the village market be? Is it going to be in the podium for Aqua, that is directly south of the Aqua tower itself?

It's really a good solution that keeps truck traffic off of the ring road.

If Magellan decides to get dangerous, that lot could fit a building the size of the Tides. That would, of course, highly complicate the loading operations underground, and the weight of the core would have to be transferred to the edges of the lot to allow trucks to pass underneath.

^ There is a building planned for that parcel, I have not seen anything yet in terms of drawings/renderings, etc., but it is a full parcel, with loading properties perhaps below upper Columbus.

Ardecila,
What you're referring to at the far right side of the rendering is, in fact, the existing podium base of the BC/BS building. Notice the horizontal banding of the masonry and the layout of the landscaping on the roof. This is a rendering of what's there now. The Village Market structure will extend from the roadway into LSE west until it abuts the east face of the BC/BS podium.

The thin parcel of land just north of the BC/BC podium and south of the Aqua development is a separate part of the LSE master plan.

New neighborhood bursts onto scene
DOWNTOWN BOOM | Lakeshore East plans 4,950 homes

November 24, 2007
BY DAVID ROEDER


Tall building could draw ire

The developers are talking a trade with the city: Surrendering one of the development sites for the school, probably along Columbus Drive south of the Aqua. In exchange, the city would grant zoning authority for buildings a little taller than a current maximum of about 70 stories near Lake Shore Drive.

Loewenberg and Carlins won't discuss specifics, but the danger is that anything extremely tall could overwhelm the neighborhood sense they've carefully built around the park. Also, the same buyers they're signing up could become the political force opposing taller buildings.

Roeder is being a bit silly here, considering the scale of what's been built or is in construction - I mean, you're already just an ant at the bottom of a quarry pit - not at all an unpleasant sensation - but please, "overwhelm"? A more likely scenario is that some residents will seek to protect their views from any new encroachments. I do wish that Roeder would apply a little critical discretion before regurgitating some of this nonsense... but perhaps an upwards height revision explains the LSE's delay in releasing the final designs for the next (AQ) tower.
