From spyguy's original post on SSP:
The three new Northwestern University Biomedical research tower design finalists, which replaces the Prentice Women's hospital...and are all disappointing, frankly.

Perkins + Will:





Smith + Gill:

Jesus Christ Chicago's stunning! Visited this past summer and didn't want to come back. Cheap, good neighborhoods, nice people, quintessential America. In many ways more impressive than New York

Potentially BIG news, directly north of the Wrigley building complex on Michigan Ave:

NAR takes steps to build ‘Rockefeller Center’-like headquarters in Chicago
Mixed-use, 2 million-square-foot project to be branded with Realtor logo


Andrea V. Brambila Associate Editor
Nov 11, 2013

SAN FRANCISCO — Chicago may have its own Realtor Plaza in the not-too-distant future, modeled on New York’s iconic landmark, Rockefeller Center.

'Cheers and applause followed a vote by the board of directors of the National Association of Realtors today in which the board approved a redevelopment project for the trade group’s Chicago headquarters at 430 North Michigan Ave. The project would involve demolishing the existing building, which is more than a half-century old, and combining it with an adjoining parcel to create a mixed-use development that would include retail, condominiums, a flagship hotel, and office space...

...NAR Treasurer Bill Armstrong noted that he and NAR CEO Dale Stinton had been in discussions with the partner for “a long time,” but had been prohibited from mentioning the project to members due to nondisclosure agreements. The partner, which has “billions to invest,” proposed a 93-story, 2 million-square-foot building that would be a “Rockefeller Center-type venue,” Armstrong said.'
