Here is an updated (daytime) rendering of 151 N. Franklin Street, which I believe was previously pegged at 31 stories but is now 36 stories:



With the increase in floors, it might actually come pretty close to 500' in overall height.

I like to highlight some choice suburban projects, not just because they are of interesting or unique design, but also because they potentially contribute to the overall development of the region, and I also feel that whether you love or hate the suburbs, they are an integral part of the success of Chicago and the entire region as a whole.

I think these two science projects help reinforce the region as a major science and technology force, the world over. Although Fermilab is currently operating as a far more scaled-back version of it's former self (thanks in large part to the Large Hadron Collider in Europe), it still has the potential for significant scientific research and discovery.

Argonne's newly completed Energy Sciences Building, completed this summer I believe:

The earlier version is on the left and the higher, updated version is on the right.

Another day, another cool proposal, this one is residential. Images and info from BVictor1 on SSP (Also, his very first sentence is in reference to a very cool, separate proposal for a different building (office) that I will post next, once I find the rendering):

725 West Randolph public meeting 11/26/13





















A few stats on the building...

-220 units

-260 parking spaces, some of which will be available to the public. The parking will be all automated and have mechanical lifts.

-359' to the top of the building.

-They're planning on a spring 2014 groundbreaking.

-The PD is supposed to go before the plan commission in December.

There was minimal opposition to the project, surprisingly. There were a few who were concerned about the traffic and one person mentioned the height, but they were pretty much told that with this zoning there's no height limit.

I think that the building has a Miamiesque feeling with the horizontals with the circular formations on top, which to me makes the building look like a giant lego.

The structure will also have a slight rotating twerk to it.
Edit: Found it - this is the rendering of the proposed office tower, referred to in BVictor1's first sentence above - it initially started out as two separate proposals (601 & 625 W. Monroe) but the developer wanted to consolidate into one tower, and I believe that this proposal is still active:

....and another new proposal. Curbed Chicago just posted a rendering of Hovey's second, 57 story Optima tower (the tower on the left is now beginning occupancy). The new tower on the right will have 200+ hotel rooms and 400 apartments.

I've been meaning to address this even though it seems most have abided the unwritten rule of this thread so I haven't. Its great to have a Chicago thread that doesn't get off topic with opinions and commentary and be just used for updates.

Commentary opinions, and squabbling are all well and good but we have enough of those on the SSP and in the various sub-threads in the Chicago forum if need be. Frankly its nice to have a nice clean up to date thread where only relevant hard information is gathered. Or where comparisons with other projects, cities, or mundane real estate matters are bandied about.

Just my two cents.

Same architect for both projects. So what's your point, considering the Chicago proposal is taller, different exterior skin configuration, 2 blocks from public transit and has a 270'+ river-walk extension? The massing might be very similar considering the design provenance, but beyond that, it's apples-to-oranges.

We have a thread for this in Proposed Supertalls since the developer is hoping to push the consolidated tower at 625 W. Monroe to 75 stories.

Is The 50 Story Hotel At 150 E. Ontario Still On?

The evidence is mounting...

Quote:
We dug through the city records and found that demolition permits were issued for these buildings September 13th, and the owner of the property is still listed as Ontario Hotel Development, LLC out in Oak Park.

So what’s Ontario Hotel Development up to? Could it, possibly, be developing a hotel on Ontario?

Maybe. But if it is, it still has a lot of paperwork to go through. Currently, the property is zoned DX-12, which means that a building in that location would likely be between 12 and 30 stories tall, not the 50 planned by the previous developer, Monaco Development.



Monaco had visions of a 50-story building with 330 hotel rooms and 20 condominiums. A Crain’s Chicago Business article from January, 2008 is the last anyone’s heard out of the project. In that article, Monaco claimed that the city had already signed off on the tower. But if that was still true, the property would have a PD designation, not a DX.

It appears that Monaco is no longer involved with this project. So, who is? It appears to be a company called 150 East Ontario Acquisitions. It was formed in 2006 and appears to be a going concern, having filed paperwork with the Illinois Secretary of State’s office just this past September. But it’s run out of a condo on the 13th floor of 110 East Delaware Place. Similar records point to a bunch of real estate lawyers, but nothing concrete at this point.
