Perhaps an indication of what we'll get?

Pelli's design for a skyscraper in SF, also with Hines

I think the Modern Wing at the Art Institute is being designed by Renzo Piano.

I wish that Pelli would get off his oblong obelisk kick. It seems like he's run out of ideas.

Hmm... what would be cool is if they took the SF proposal and made it 3-sided.

Wow...is that the way the replacement for the transbay terminal is supposed to look below the tower? That roof garden is fantastic! I know the structure is supposed to host the CalTrain terminal and I believe the light rail line that will extend north to Chinatown, as well as its continued role as the terminal for East Bay busses.

Incredibly cool and perhaps the best intermodal in the nation.

edsg, have you seen the other two in the design competition one by SOM and the other by Rogers? All three are amazing but I think the one by SOM is the most impressive and even better then the Pelli.

I dont know.

I think I would take the SF plan or the Hong Kong One financial type obelisk if we could get a roof hight around 1400 ft sans spire.


Location Hong Kong

Constructed 2003

Height
Antenna/Spire 415.8 m (1,364 ft.)
Roof 406.9 m (1,335 ft.)
Top floor 401.9 m (1,319 ft.)
Floor count 88
Architect César Pelli

I'd rather have something original as that design has already seen its day, IMO. Plus, we already have 181 W. Madison. I hope it's something fresh and new. This location deserves a top notch design.

^ This location deserves the modern rendition of tribune tower. Something so magnificent that it's awe-inspiring. Obviously, it would be much taller and not be made out of stone( i wish), but it needs to have that kind of impact on such a grand site that can be seen from so many different vantage points. Back when the tribune tower was built, it was a huge deal with its intricate design and attention to detail- this needs to be the taller, more modern version of that type of impact.

I agree. Whatever they build must be magnificent. I would really have liked to see a scaled down version of the Illinois built here... perhaps at 3000 ft. Or, at least something tall enough and majestic enough that it's beauty can be enjoyed from all vantage points on the skyline. Something that knocks the wind out of people when they look at it.

If their mind is already set on 89 floors and 3 separate buildings, my dream will remain what it is.... a daydream.

In the photo, dated August 17, how much of the actual site is visable??
becouse what i'm seeing is a very small site for three towers, and i must agree, this site must have a building that is nothing short of spactacular, and again i agree, Pelli must start from scratch on this one, and not revise completed works.

You're looking at a little more than a 1/3 of the site.

Oh, the poor residents of Riverbend Condos! I bet they thought they'd have those views forever. Well, regardless of what the tower looks like, I have to imagine the city will push the whole "river-walk" concept for it. Imagine being able to walk from Trump to this thing, the whole time along the river!!! Kick-ass!!!

Here's my FrankenPhoto of the site taken from the top of the steps leading down to the parking lot from the entrance to hotel. It's really not a big site when you consider what's being proposed but I'll wait to see an actual proposal first. (almost) anything that hides the Apparel Mart/Sun Times building gets my vote!

if they were to give an award out for the "worst place in the nation to have a parking lot", I think we have a winner.

You gotta feel that having a parking lot in that location is basically a crime.
