First Look: New Downtown Chicago Hotel on Rush Street



Quote:
We’re getting our first look at the latest hotel tower proposed for the Near North side.

When we first heard about the project, it sounded like the end of the line for one of downtown’s greatest tourist magnets: The Giordano’s restaurant on Rush and Superior Streets. The early descriptions led us to believe that the old warehouse building would be sacrificed for lodging. It turns out there’s nothing to worry about.



The hotel tower is actually going to be located behind the Giordano’s building, with the entrance on Superior Street. It doesn’t look like much frontage there, but it is plenty large enough for a 45-story tower because the property footprint actually widens out as it continues north toward the alley.

The developer, Freidman, is going for a LEED Gold building with 14,000 square feet of retail space at the base. The hotel will be affiliated with one of the Hyatt brands.

A birdie tells is that the design architect for the very glassy tower is Chicago’s own Todd Halamk. You may remember him from such projects as the trio of new hotels that were built simultaneously a couple of blocks away over the last couple of years. However, we’re told the architect of record will likely be NORR, which is based in Toronto, with a local office in the Britannica Center on the river.

The Plan To Replace The Old Gino's East With A New Tower



Quote:
Over 100 River North residents and business owners joined at the former Gino's East last night to cheerlead the end of the pizza-adorned blight (or to commiserate about their dwindling views) at a meeting hosted by Alderman Brendan Reilly and the River North Residents Association. Representatives from Magellan Development and bKL Architecture presented proposals for two new apartment towers in the area. On the table was 167 W. Erie St., the current Gino's East spot on the west end of the block sheathed by Erie and Ontario on the north and south and Franklin and Wells to the west and east.

Magellan Development Group and Mac Management have a proposed 41 story, 444-unit residential building designed by Loewenberg Architects on the "tight" site based with a wider, 8-story podium housing a lobby, retail and parking — with a more narrow portion shooting up into the residential tower.

New Boutique Condo Tower Slated For River North



Quote:
River North's residential boom will not be stopped. In addition to an 11 story mixed-use development for 707 North Wells Street, developer Akara Partners has one more trick up its sleeve in the form of a 14 story condo development. Yes, you have read that correctly, more new condos are coming to the upscale River North neighborhood. The new tower will include only 28 units, which are expected to be high end luxury condos.

New Renders For Long Planned South Loop Tower Surface



Quote:
Is this Stanley Saitowitz designed tower coming to Chicago's South Loop? According to an inquiry to Natoma Architects last year, a rep from the San Francisco based architecture and design firm basically told us "Don't hold your breath". In late 2012, developer Crescent Heights purchased a two acre site at the southeast corner of Michigan Avenue and Roosevelt Road, and last April, renderings for a sleek glass tower supposedly planned for the site surfaced online. However, yesterday afternoon new renderings for the mystery tower were spotted on Buzz Buzz Home. The renders also appear on Stanley Saitowitz' website.

---

Simply dubbed "The Chicago", the tower appears to be quite large in size, though not gargantuan and features some unusual design cues. Previous guesses speculated that the tower could contain up to 1,200 residential units and either 1,500 hotel rooms or 325,000 square feet of office space in a 70 story tower.

















Saitowitz has been very prolific in San Francisco, primarily with low and mid-rise buildings such as 8Octavia. This would likely be his tallest and largest commission to date.

200 N. Michigan Gets First Permit



Quote:
With the demolition of a concrete mid-rise building at 200 North Michigan Avenue completed, developer John Buck is ready to begin erecting a sleek 42 story glass tower at the site. Simply dubbed 200 N Michigan, the new tower has received a permit to begin foundation work, and workers are getting ready to start digging a giant hole in the earth where the new structure will stand.
