A Hubbard Habitat

November 2nd, 2011


http://**************/360-w-hubbard-...r-north/24445/

Last week we mentioned briefly that construction was going to begin on the Habitat Tower (360 West Hubbard Street) in the next few weeks. That got us plenty of e-mail asking for more information about the building.

In a nutshell: “For people who like Kingsbury Plaza, this is the sort of thing they will like.”

Here some of the details we scraped together about it:
•Developer: The Habitat Company
•Address: 360 West Hubbard Street
•Stories: 43 + one mechanical floor + one penthouse machine room
•Height to main roof: 438 feet, 7½ inches
•Total height: 449 feet, four inches
•Apartments: 450
•Parking spaces: 520
•Bicycle spaces: 260
•Storage lockers: 451
•Eight-story parking garage topped with pool and private park.
•Leasing and management offices on the second floor.
•Shape: Oval, oriented northwest to southeast
•Driveway will go under the southern portion of the building.
•Kingsbury Street in front of the East Bank Club to be significantly improved. Sidewalk widened, trees and planters installed.
•Two fountains outside
•Loading docks: Two + one for trash, all on West Illinois Street
•Public dog run on West Illinois Street
•Ninth floor amenities: Fitness room, yoga studio, club room, media room, conference room, kitchen/bar area, multi-purpose room, lounge, steam room, sauna, whirlpool, pool.
•LEED Silver
•60% of the parcel will be built on. 40% parkland.
•The pool doesn’t look like it’s a real pool, just one of those splashy ponds like at The Shoreham and other buildings that spare every expense to mark “pool” off on a features checklist.

Well, I guess it's nice that Chicago is building something that could vaguely be considered "tall". Is there any other major skyscraper city that goes through the same kind of wild boom/bust cycles as Chicago?

Im not sure about this, I think the design needs to be more contemporary - Its a bit insipid for my liking...

In other words, I would want to see more bold shapes and calddings

nice building, but only 9 ft floor height, including the thickness of the floor is not very much.
