word on the street is that it's just a massing model but the current height for the tallest tower is 925 feet.

Correct, Although I am very happy with this design, it wasn't even designed by Cesar Pelli. This is just a early massing model. Cesar Pelli is designing the towers, but his designs haven't been released yet. This is a simple design, that is meant to show the plans they have. They hope to start construction of the first tower this fall.

Correction, they are saying that they want the main tower to be 950 feet, or 290 meters

Yeah. The main tower and the other office building are being designed by Cesar Pelli. The apartment building, the smallest tower, is being designed by BKL

These designs are absolute gorgeous. I could only imagine what Cesar Pelli has in store for Wolf Point. Either way I'd be a happy camper.

This might be closer to the final design then I thought, I have been following the discussion on SSP. Either way, I love it! This building also has a roof height of 290 meters!

PHASE I










Reminds me of early images of the Trump Tower river-walk proposal.











My personal opinion on this project is that it has potential. One of my biggest complaints is that 3 towers seem a little cluttered. Personally I'd rather see 2 taller towers over 3. It would allow for even more open space, sight corridors and create a greater punctuation on the skyline. I know the process is still early, but currently the towers seem flat and a little boring.

It was mentioned that over the years about 5,000 sq. ft. of developable land along the river has been lost to erosion.

Over 900' of river-walk will be constructed.

Phase I could possible begin in late 2012 and be completed in the fall of 2014.

Phase II could be build from 2016 and wrap up around 2018

Phase III could be completed around 2020.

Build lobbies will be tucked in and useable floor space begins about 90' up. They said this was to allow for a feel of openness.

They are planning to file the PD 05/20/12

The project will cost roughly $1,000,000,000 and generate about $40,000,000 in property tax revenue.

I agree, it has great potential with a great plan but that smaller building just doesn't look right in my opinion. I would love to see the main tower have a twin. But I am far more than happy with this development, anything for Chicago is just a major plus.

Sorry if I missed it (and I'm almost afraid to ask), is Phase I the shortest tower ?

Yes, the Kennedys have good funding though. If this gets approved, I expect it will all be built. The Kennedys are also backed by Hines and Magellan.

Looks like a wow.
So that rectangular building at the corner will eventually rise first?
