Wow. So this will be built over the current drop-off/pick-up area, and right in front of the existing lobby. Wonder if Big Bar will stick around.

New information about "Building A" at Lakeshore East:
  • Occupancy: February, 2013
  • Height: 425 feet, measured from East Upper Wacker Drive.
  • Construction start: June
  • Rentals only
  • Studios, convertibles, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartments.
  • Three-bedroom apartments are new, and there will be one in the northwest corner of each of the top five floors.
  • 18,000 square foot retail space on East Upper Wacker Drive.
  • Five levels of parking below Wacker Drive level.
  • Pool and common outdoor area on the podium. From the drawings, the pool looks to be just a cheap splash pool like at The Shoreham, not a real pool.
  • The east and west walls of the building are entirely clear glass. The balconies on the north and south faces of the building are recessed from the edge of the perpendicular glass walls, and faced with glass railings.
  • Two dog runs
  • Green roof.
  • Slightly shorter than The Tides.
  • 45 stories above Wacker Drive, 50 stories from ground level, which includes the public parking garage.

I really like the last two pics hydrogen. They are so sharp and crisp. What kind of camera did you use?

Thanks. I have a Canon 5D II. These were taken with my Canon 17mm tilt-shift lens.

Obviously there's going to be huge glass fish tanks, possibly with sharks. Guests will enter over a glass bridge suspended over stingrays




This is what I meant...
