Fifield plans 31-story apartment tower near ex-Cabrini site



Quote:
Anticipating the flow of technology jobs, Chicago developer Steve Fifield is planning a 31-story apartment tower on the northwest edge of River North near the former Cabrini-Green housing project site.

Mr. Fifield's venture seeks a zoning change to build the 333-unit tower at Chestnut and Orleans streets, according to a zoning application introduced at the Feb. 5 City Council meeting.

“I've been wanting to get a River North site for some time,” said Mr. Fifield, who in April completed the 496-unit K2 tower at 365 N. Halsted St., a little over a mile southwest of the River North site.

“I'm particularly enamored with the western area of River North, because if you draw an arrow of where things are moving, we feel that's where the technology companies are going to be,” Mr. Fifield said.

The tower is planned along the east side of the two-story, 67,000-square-foot building occupied by Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, on land Mr. Fifield will buy from a venture of Marc Realty LLC principal Gerald Nudo, contingent on the project receiving the go-ahead from the city, Mr. Fifield said.

More about the Spire:

Ireland independent

Quote:
Irish developer's dream to build Chicago Spire back on track

Sarah McCabe – 07 February 2014

GARRETT Kelleher’s dream to build the western world’s tallest building is back on track.

The Chicago Spire, the building dreamed up by Irish developer Kelleher and Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava near the delta of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan, has secured €135m from a US company which should enable work to recommence.

If completed, the 2,000 foot residential building will be the tallest in North America. Its foundations have laid untouched for several years, after work ground to a halt when Kelleher’s company Shelbourne defaulted on a large loan from Anglo Irish Bank in 2009. The site, which looks like a deep hole in the earth, is known by locals as “The Bathtub.”

Shelbourne’s loans were eventually acquired by NAMA and later sold to RMW Acquisition, an affiliate of billionaire Stephen Ross's real estate development business Related Companies. Kelleher’s company Shelbourne retained an interest in the project.

Now the Irish developer has found an investor willing to kickstart the project. Chicago-based Atlas Apartment Holdings will commit €135m to the project, which Shelbourne said will allow it to pay its creditors in full.

The proposals must still be approved by a US bankruptcy court. If successful, the project could generate as many as 15,000 US construction jobs. “Given the ongoing recovery in the Chicago property market, the timing is better now than when this project commenced. I am delighted to have found a partner who believes in the project as passionately as I do” said Kelleher.

Belvedere College and Trinity graduate Kelleher was one of the most prolific developers in Celtic Tiger Ireland. Properties he developed include two office blocks on St Stephen’s Green in Dublin, which later went into receivership.

He is also is the owner of the Irish football club Saint Patrick's Athletic FC.

Aqua developer recruits architect Jeanne Gang for another tower



Quote:
They're getting the Aqua gang back together.

Jeanne Gang, the architect who designed the Aqua Tower, is designing another high-rise nearby for Magellan Development Group LLC, which built the acclaimed 82-story skyscraper at 225 N. Columbus Drive. “We're in the midst of working with her on a new one,” said Joel Carlins, Magellan's co-CEO.

The building will include a hotel and residential units, though he would not say whether they'll be rentals or for sale. He said it's too soon to disclose any details of the design, which “will work on either one of two sites” in Magellan's Lakeshore East development, the 28-acre master-planned community between Millennium Park and the Chicago River.

With its irregular curving balconies that make the tower's walls look as if they're eroding, Aqua became an instant landmark even before it was finished in 2009. Its arresting looks and its status as the world's tallest building designed by an architecture firm with a woman at the helm generated significant buzz.

Aqua also brought fame and new commissions to Ms. Gang, who received a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant in 2011. Other projects she is designing include a tower in San Francisco planned by New York-based developer Tishman Speyer, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
This could be good!

Construction Of John Buck's 200 N Michigan Tower Imminent



Quote:
Developer John Buck has recently scored an $89 million loan to begin construction of the new 200 N Michigan tower in the Loop. The 42 story bKL designed building received approval from the city last December, but securing funding was the remaining roadblock for the project. The total cost of the development is expected to reach $100 million and construction is expected to begin in the next few weeks.

Block 37 residential tower

More than eight years after breaking ground on Block 37, construction crews could be returning soon to build hundreds of apartments atop the Loop shopping center.
The owner of the mall across State Street from Macy's department store, Los Angeles-based CIM Group, is in advanced preparations for the next phase of the development, an apartment tower with more than 500 units, according to people familiar with CIM's plans.
The project would mark an important milestone for Block 37, a development that was stuck in the planning process for so long that many people thought it would never get built—and then wound up in foreclosure after the real estate crash............


The original design from SCB 8 years ago......

Is This New Residential Building Coming To South Clark St.?


1000 S. Clark

Quote:
The South Loop might be getting a brand spankin' new residential tower - is this it? The Chicago Architecture Blog reports that the rendering of this 29 story tower could find a home at 1000 South Clark Street. Rumor has it that the building is expected to contain roughly 400 units, and whether they will be apartments or condos is not yet known.

Spire developer resolves debts, looks to start again



Quote:
'We are building exactly the same building that was contemplated to be built. ... Buying it out of bankruptcy was an interim step,' says Atlas CEO Steve Ivankovich

The fight for control of the Chicago Spire's site is headed toward resolution, after which the hunt for the funds to build it can begin anew.

Shelbourne North Water Street LP, has reached an agreement with key creditors that would resolve the company’s bankruptcy, pay outstanding claims in full and theoretically enable a behemoth project that has sat idle for six years to move forward.

But if all goes according to the proposal laid out during a bankruptcy hearing Wednesday afternoon, it won’t be Irish developer Garrett Kelleher calling the shots in the development of what aims to be the tallest building in the western hemisphere, a residential skyscraper with an estimated construction cost of at least $1.5 billion. Nor will it be Related Midwest, a deep-pocketed residential developer in Chicago that has been at odds with Shelbourne for months – unless Related doesn’t get the monies it is due.

Attorneys for the key parties involved in the bankruptcy unveiled in court the framework for an agreement that would have Atlas Apartment Holdings LLC, a Northbrook-based apartment development and management company, provide the funds necessary to resolve the bankruptcy case.

Post-bankruptcy, Atlas would oversee the development of the Chicago Spire as it was originally intended, a 2,000-foot, 150-story spiral-shaped condominium tower. Kelleher, who just last month detailed in court filings his proposed financial partnership with Atlas, would remain key to the project, according to Atlas CEO Steve Ivankovich.

“Garrett (Kelleher) is still the developer,” Ivankovich said in an interview. “We are building exactly the same building that was contemplated to be built. “For us, it was always about building the Spire,” he added. “Buying it out of bankruptcy was an interim step.”

40 Story Apartment Tower Planned For the South Loop



Quote:
Recently revealed: this rendering of a recently proposed shiny new 40 story apartment tower in the Loop. The building would replace a small strip of fast food joints at 400 South Financial Place and would contain roughly 225 to 275 apartment units. The SCB designed glass-clad tower appears to be commissioned by commercial developer MB Real Estate.

Proposal Has This Pair Of Ultra-Futuristic Spaceship-Looking Buildings Landing in Ukrainian Village



Quote:
To all of those who have complained about the bland designs of recent residential developments coming to Chicago's neighborhoods, hold on to your hats because this pair of futuristic LEED Gold-certified buildings may soon land in the Ukrainian Village. Developer Panoptic Group has attempted to make a name for itself with its previous sleek, contemporary residential developments but hopes to make a huge splash with its latest project that calls for two Hanna Architects-designed condo buildings near Western and Grand Avenues. The greenish-glassy building planned for 2424 W Grand would be a mixed use development, with 18,000 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and up to 50 condo units, comprised of one, two and three bedroom units. Its partner in cybercrime, (which may soon have a doppelgänger) would be built at 560 N Western and contain 20 units, which would also be a mix of one, two and three bedroom condos.
