Got some good news. We should get some renders for Wolf point, which is being designed by Cesar Pelli, on May 29th. I have read an recent article that said that 375 wacker drive would be revived once the economy recovers. I also have heard some news on 400 West Randolph from a person on SSP that works for the firm building it. He said that they are actively working on it, and are going to reveal designs for it soon. He also said that everyone would be happy with the final height.

Here is a quick image I made of the future site. Nothing great, just something I made real quick to get an idea of what it could look like. Since they haven't released any renders of wolf point I just designed it.

I think the 4 towers at Atrium Village and tower of Jewel proposals are realistic possibilities for the future.

Yeah, I will add them to the list. The towers at Atrium Village are the 40+ story ones that may go up in near north right ? Also, everything on this list is a realistic possibility. The renders for Wolf Point Tower should come May 29th. The tallest building will most likely be a supertall. Also construction starts on 435 N Park in a few months. It will be 193 meters, and the first skyscraper built since the 423m Trump International finished in 2010. This could be the beginning of the next boom.

Nicely done I hope you know your guesstimate is off as far as the location of the main tower. From the angle in that picture the main tower would be right in front of the riverbend condos. The location where you have it now is closer to where the 50 story apartment tower would go.

Just added a Gigantic update! The page is about 10 times longer now. I added a new section "Proposals taken from SSP."

Nice update. I'd probably take conservatory tower off the list, as its more of a pie in the sky proposal.

Yeah, it was the best picture I could find online. It was hard to get the angle right.

It's still in the proposal phase. It is waiting for approval, and supposedly has funding for the first phase.

Did a little digging to figure out about some projects :

375 Wacker Drive - There is a more recent article saying the same thing, but I wasn't able to find it. Here is what I could find. Thanks to i_am_hydrogen for finding this -

...Post-Aqua, is it back to standard-issue buildings at Lakeshore East?

No. It’s going to be tough to top that building. But we hired Arquitectonica, the Miami firm, and they designed a building that straddles the street. We were ready to go. Thank God we never started. A great market opportunity, in the next two or three years, after you get through the overhanging inventory.

GREEKTOWN BUILDING: ...The building would be 48 stories and contain 514 units. It would be attached to a nine-story building containing parking plus space for banquets and about 10,000 square feet along Halsted Street for boutique stores.

The design is by FitzGerald Associates Architects, where principal Rich Whitney said the project should take about 14 months in the city approval process and two years after that to build. The developer is David Friedman, president of F&F Realty Ltd. in Skokie and owner of the hotel.

The West Loop Community Organization backs the project, said its executive director, Martha Goldstein. The group has taken a harder line against high-rises proposed west of Halsted.
