Cabinets

Hello all,

My first post to the site! I would love, love, love to get in on this project! We are currently wrapping up with 600 N Lake Shore Drive, and this would just be a hop, skip and not even a jump away~ We are an independant Wood Mode cabinet dealership in the west burbs (previously ran Smartrooms in the Merchandise Mart), and are very qualified to work on high-rise/multi-volume projects. Previous projects include 530 N LSD, 600 N LSD, The Vue - Charlotte (w/MCL), Riverview I and II, Museum Park - tower 2, The Ambassador, Fordham, Pinnacle, to name a few, as well as several townhome developments with Belgravia Group. Shoot me a message, would love to become more active on this site~

Hi ChiSkyline, if the inquiry is for me, I am wondering the same thing! As far as the listed projects in my post, the only project that is not completed yet is 600 N. Lake Shor Drive, which we are coming to and end with cabinet orders. The Vue finished last year however several units were spec units, so I'm not sure how many of those eventually sold. I am missing the hustle of a high-rise project Especially now we have so much more to offer in our semi-custom line! What do you do?

Yes. It looks to be about the same height as when I passed by last week.

Not to my knowledge. It appears they are just doing the pours in phases, postponing the main parking podium until the tower portion reaches a further stat of completion. If you look closely in person you can see the rebar protruding southward, waiting to be tied into the podium.

Yep I took those the day I posted them. BTW, it's about 6 or 7 floors higher than the previous photo taken by hydrogen. Sorry for the quality, but my other camera was dead so I took these with my cell phone.

Just about to the height that the podium would top-out at.
