"Tower of Jewel" Makes a Claim on Clark and Division
Monday, November 21, 2011, by Kevin Dickert

The loathsome parking lot on Clark and Division could finally meet its demise. Last July, Curbed reported on Jewel's plans to build a high-rise at this prime Gold Coast location. Owing to the efforts of spyguy at Skyscraperpage.com, we can now pore over the latest renderings...

Hhhmm nice. That would drift over some nice height (and more important great TOD) into west Gold Coast.

Why Fifield's Gold Coast high-rise project is nowhere

Oct. 21, 2013

As developer Steve Fifield of Fifield Cos. has discovered, remaking the corner of Clark and Division streets—right over the Red Line subway station—isn't as easy as he'd like. Welcome to the wonderful world of complex air-rights transfers, Sandburg Village politics and City Council remap shenanigans, all of which play a role in this tale.

The story began a year and a half ago. That's when Mr. Fifield and the folks who then owned the Jewel store decided to partner up on a redevelopment of the site, which, despite its underuse, is one of the most desirable corners of the city. They called for rebuilding and almost doubling the size of the store, with parking upstairs. Since they'd no longer need the surface lot next door, they proposed erecting a 42-story residential building at the other end of the block, at LaSalle Boulevard, matching the height of the 42-floor James House at the north end of nearby Sandburg Village, Mr. Fifield says.

Now, this being not only Chicago but the always-contentious North Side, no one expected things would move quickly. On top of that was a special complication: Since building heights are limited by law in that part of town, Mr. Fifield would have to “acquire” air rights belonging to owners of 101 nearby townhouses and transfer them to his land. He proposed to do so not by buying them up one by one but by promising to spend $1 million on landscaping, sidewalks and other spiffy stuff at Clark and Division for the community's benefit.

Dealing with public officials can be like herding cats.

Mr. Fifield says he had made a fair amount of progress, winning permission from homeowners associations representing the townhouses to file his planned-unit-development application and holding a series of meetings with local Ald. Brendan Reilly, 42nd. Mr. Reilly definitely wasn't on board yet. He wrote two letters to neighborhood residents, one as recent as Oct. 5 (see the PDF), reminding them: “Your air rights are a valuable asset that warrants compensation should you consent to allowing their use for the Jewel project.”

Still, at least they were talking.

But then Ald. Danny Solis of the 25th Ward, chairman of the Committee on Zoning, made an announcement. Effective immediately, on all rezoning matters, the new ward boundaries in the decennial remap of the City Council would apply. And that meant that this parcel no longer resides in Mr. Reilly's 42nd Ward but in Ald. Bob Fioretti's 2nd Ward, which (under the previous map) covered portions of the South and West Loop and now (under the new map) snakes across the North Side. In other words, Mr. Fioretti doesn't know the Sandburg people, and they don't know him.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Mr. Fioretti is being quite deliberate in reacting to Mr. Fifield's plans. The developer “has a long way to go” to make his project acceptable, even after a year and a half of chatting with one division of City Hall or the other, Mr. Fioretti tells me. “There's a lot of issues to deal with, from traffic to density.”

Translation: That high-rise may have to be shortened.

That sucks big time.

He will now have to spend the 1M (+extra) dedicated for landscaping on acquisition of air rights.

New Jewel Flagship Store & 35 Story Apartment Tower Proposed for Clark Street

Quote:
Next week, Alderman Bob Fioretti will host a community meeting to discuss a plan to bring a new flagship Jewel grocery store and a 35 story apartment tower to the northwest corner of Clark and Division. The plan to stack apartments on top of the four story building at 1201 North Clark Street will also be discussed at the meeting.

NIMBYS Attack!

Gold Coast’s New Jewel Tower Gets Roughed


Already chopped from 50 to 35 stories, this maligned plan could end up being just the damn supermarket with carriage house lanterns at the front entrance!

Jewel Tower Scans With Plan Commission, Heads to City Hall’s Express Checkout



Quote:
Just hours after the general public was given its first taste of the proposed new skyscraper and supermarket planned for the Gold Coast, the Chicago Plan Commission scanned it, threw it in a plastic bag and sent it off to the full city council for its rubber stamp of approval.

It was just 44 hours and 18 minutes earlier that a packed crowd of neighbors gathered at the Thompson Hotel to see pictures of the proposed development at 1200 North Clark Street for the first time. Although the developer, Fifield Companies, did meet with a selection of neighborhood groups in the weeks beforehand, it was the first chance for Joe Lunchbucket and Jane Pantsuit to get a glimpse of what is planned.

What is planned is a $40 million, 35-story residential tower to replace the worn out Jewel-Osco supermarket across the street from the CTA’s Red Line Division Station. At its base, friends-of-the-blog SCB, have designed a gleaming “flagship” Jewel-Osco supermarket, with several floors of parking above the shopping space.

Gold Coast Jewel Shutters to Make Way for New Store and Apartment Tower



Quote:
The Sinclair, an upcoming apartment tower, is moving towards construction as demolition preparations have begun at the northwest corner of Clark and Division Streets. The existing Jewel-Osco store at the location, which has been the source of this project's commonly applied nickname of "Tower of Jewel" among development watchers, has officially closed as of last weekend and a small work crew has begun a tear down of the grocery store's interior. The project will become the city's second largest transit oriented development (TOD) presently under construction (after Block 37) as the new structures will sit directly on top of the CTA's newly expanded Clark/Division Red Line station which has entrances at each end of the block.

Gold Coast Tower of Jewel Officially Breaks Ground After Years in the Making



Quote:
One of the Gold Coast's seediest blocks is poised for transformation as developer Fifield Companies has officially broken ground on its long-awaited 35-story luxury apartment tower located at Clark and Division. Officially dubbed The Sinclair in June, many development-watchers will be more familiar with this project by its completely informal nickname, "Tower of the Jewel." The $200 million development replaces the aging Jewel supermarket at 1210 N. Clark Street with a new and expanded 55,000 square foot flagship store, parking garage, and 390 residential units ranging in size from studios to four-bedroom penthouses
