I would think that one day that actually has a good shot of getting torn down though.

Seeing how the SOM proposal for the SF Transbay terminal didn't win, wouldn't it be great if we could have that beauty at Wolf point? I know it won't happen but I really really wish that somehow it could.

This parking discussion is off topic - that being said there are 9000 parking spaces in the Grant Park Garages. So there no need to bemoan the loss of another surface lot.

I read that the Kennedys own this lot and that they are willing to sit on it forever until the market is good enough to build.

Very old news. They use to own the Merchandise Mart and sold it to Vorando Realty Trust in 1998. The Kennedy's back then said they were going to hold on to it and were not in a rush to develop it.

Early this year word was they are ready to develop it. And that is how we got this thread......

The Suntimes isn't moving anywhere. No one is tearing down the Suntimes building.

No and no. If that info was available, it would have been posted. It's not really moving forward at this time.
