TRANSFORMING MILLENNIUM'S SHORE

...The developer's Aqua building, a wavy-edged tower designed by Studio Gang's Jeanne Gang, is part of Lakeshore and has just 35 condos left to sell. Aqua's apartments are 85% leased, and David says its space for a hotel should be signed in the next 30 days. He tells us the retail project should break ground next week, including a 60k-SF Roundy's grocery store and a Three Forks Steakhouse.

...Since then, it’s consistently had a building in the works, one after the next, though frigid financing has slowed recent starts. Still he expects to start six to nine new buildings on the shore site this decade.

Man! 6-9 new buildings over the decade. Lakeshore East alone is going to massively boost the Loop's residential population.

Not really, it is outside the loop.

Well, for demographic information from the city of Chicago, it *is* counted as the Loop, no? There's the literal "loop" (everything between the tracks) and then the figurative Loop that most people use (generally referring to everything bounded on the north by the river, east by the lake, west by the river, south by... roosevelt? harrison?)

I always thought of the Loop ending at Michigan Ave, mainly because Grant Park is, you know, a big honkin' park and not a bunch of offices. I don't stand next to Buckingham Fountain and tell people I'm "in the Loop". But Aon/Pru/IL Center kind of throw a wrench into the MI Ave boundary idea anyway.

Maybe so. Then again, if I was planning on heading to Millenium Park and then strolling around Grant Park, I'd tell people in Hyde Park I was planning on going up to the loop. From afar maybe, the definition of "the loop" becomes a bit more general.

Lakeshore East to get grocery
Roundy's plans to open supermarket in spring of next year

February 16, 2010
BY SANDRA GUY


...The supermarket location is about 100 feet to the east and 100 feet to the south of Aqua, a development at 225 N. Columbus Drive that houses 474 apartments and 262 condos. The 56,000-square-foot grocery store's third floor, which will feature prepared foods, will be accessible by foot on the upper level of Randolph Street from a breezeway between the 340 On the Park condo development at 340 E. Randolph St. and the Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Illinois Tower at 300 E. Randolph.

The supermarket will be joined by Eggy's, a breakfast cafe developed by Magellan, and a Three Forks steakhouse restaurant, inside The Village Market.

'Uncommon strength' for Loop retail market
By Eddie Baeb, March 01, 2010


...The Lakeshore East development east of Columbus Drive, which Stone factors in to the Michigan Avenue Corridor submarket, landed two big leases, with grocery chain Roundy’s and a III Forks steakhouse. Construction began on the new development last month, with completion pegged for 2011.

...Those two deals are allowing Lakeshore’s developer, Magellan Development Group LLC, to break ground on a $60-million retail building. The developer and its Korean partner, Hanwha, are contributing about 50% in equity while another $30 million is to come from two banks, says Magellan President David Carlins.

“We think it’s necessary to really solidify the residential community and make it a better place to live,” says Mr. Carlins, who adds that III Forks, a unit of Dallas-based Consolidated Restaurant Operations Inc., has leased about 12,000 square feet and will have a rooftop deck.

Mariano's Fresh Market, a $29 million project, slated for 340 E. Randolph
By IAN FULLERTON


...He said his group had been “indirectly involved in the review process” of the new store, but had one unanswered question: “We are assuming that there would be a ‘public pedestrian entry’ to the new facility from Lower Field Drive, so our residents would have easier access in inclement weather,” he wrote in an e-mail.

Gordon said that entrance won’t be built, however.

Did the parkhomes go mid-rise while I wasn't looking? Nice to get some more building types in there; those townhouses just aren't up to the task of spatially defining a large park surrounded by high-rises.

Man, if only the other slated buildings would go up soon, what an amazing oasis effect the entire project would have with that park.

Technically may not be part of LSE, but it's close enough and designed by the same architects. Plus this thread could use some activity.

Massive new three level restaurant/bar on Wacker attached to the Hyatt, designed by Loewenberg
Lounge, sushi bar, seafood restaurant
Obviously there's going to be huge glass fish tanks, possibly with sharks. Guests will enter over a glass bridge suspended over stingrays
