Work Begins At 1000 S. Clark



Quote:
Clark Street's last undeveloped piece of land north of Roosevelt is close to being the home of a new apartment tower boasting 469 units plus a bevy of on-site perks that take advantage of the lot's massive footprint.

The tower will stand at 29 stories tall, has a motor court in front and apparently no street-facing retail to try to lure pedestrians from Target or Printer's Row.

Meet the West Loop's Newest & Curviest Apartment Tower


171 N. Halsted

Quote:
Wednesday, July 9, 2014, by AJ LaTrace

Developers Shapack Partners and Focus Development are joining forces to bring a new glassy, curvy mixed-use tower to the West Loop, and unveiled their proposal to a group of area residents last evening. The new 28 story development is set to include 227 residential units with parking for 162 vehicles and about 60 bicycles. In addition to its residential component, the LEED Silver tower will include approximately 9,700 square feet of ground level commercial space.

[...]

Alderman Walter Burnett indicated that reactions to the proposal at last night's meeting would essentially influence the final verdict of his approval - and the proposal will move forward. The development heads next to the Chicago Plan Commission, and construction could begin as early as next spring.

Supertall Tower Proposed For Lakeshore East



Quote:
Move out of the way Chicago Spire, another radical supertall skyscraper is looking to plant its feet in the Windy City. Chinese real estate holding company Wanda Commercial Properties has unveiled a new plan to build an 89 story, mixed-use tower on a site located in the downtown Lakeshore East neighborhood. The tower would include a 5-star hotel and a combination of residential and commercial space. So, is this the Jeanne Gang tower that we've been hearing about? The new mixed-use tower is planned to be built just a few doors down from the architect's famed Aqua tower, which is also located in Lakeshore East. Reports of a new Studio Gang designed, Magellan Development backed tower for Lakeshore East first broke back in March but there were no clues of what it could possibly look like - until now. At roughly 1150 feet tall, the tower would become the third tallest in Chicago, pushing the 1,136 foot Aon Center out of that position. Chinese news network Sina Corp., who published one rendering of the building's design, says the expected finish date for the $900M building could be as soon as 2018.

Related Unveils New Robert A.M. Stern Tower for Streeterville



Quote:
Add one more new starchitect project for Chicago's Near North Side. Developer Related Midwest has just unveiled their new plan to build a Robert A.M. Stern designed tower in Streeterville, just a stone's throw from their recently completed 500 Lake Shore Drive development. According to the Chicago Tribune, the new tower is slated to stand at 67 stories and would contain a mixture of residences, including 400 luxury apartments and 100 condo units. The plan will also include 900 underground parking spaces and a rather large 70,000 square foot park just west of the tower.

[...]

More details about the project will be unveiled on July 28, when Related is scheduled to discuss the development at a community meeting hosted by Alderman Brendan Reilly.

Preliminary Drawing for New Block 37 Tower Revealed

Quote:
Back in March, reports indicated that after years of financial troubles and delays, an apartment and hotel tower for the downtown Block 37 shopping mall development would finally be moving forward. Just a couple of weeks after the initial announcement, architecture outfit Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB) was tapped to design the new tower. Fast forward a few months, and a drawing of the new tower has been spotted on the SkyscraperPage forums that reveals a 38 story tower that appears to match the aesthetic of the existing 275,000 square foot Block 37 retail structure.

Progress on 150 N Riverside



Quote:
Construction barges are now a common sight along the banks of the Chicago River downtown, with three major towers underway soon, along with three blocks of Chicago Riverwalk construction. The latest of those towers is this 742-foot office building soon to be residing at 150 North Riverside Drive, right between the Boeing building and the also-under-construction River Point. Unlike its building buddy to the north, 150 N Riverside doesn't need to build a tunnel over the train tracks splitting through the site. Instead, the 1.2 million square foot tower was designed to have the smallest possible footprint so its foundation can fit right between the tracks and the edge of the river.

Construction Underway for River Point's 730-foot Tower



Quote:
Construction is now underway for the 52 story office tower that will stand at the western end of the main branch of the Chicago River. A few months ago we were wondering just when work on River Point's tower would start, as the project's tunnel-plaza first phase has been finished for a while. At last, heavy equipment is now on-site and workers have begun digging the deep holes that will make up the tower's foundation. At 730 feet, River Point will be quite a bit taller than any of its near neighbors, which mostly fall in the 450-650' range. When the tower is completed in 2016, Chicagoans will find a practically re-engineered confluence area of the river as Wolf Point and 150 N Riverside will both have new towers and the Riverwalk expansion will stretch on.

Streeterville's Robert A.M. Stern Tower to Come with New Park



Quote:
Related Midwest reps met with Streeterville residents last night to formally unveil their plan to build a new 67 story, Robert A.M. Stern designed tower in the neighborhood. First announced nearly two weeks ago, the tower would be the New York based starchitect's first for Chicago. The tall slender tower will contain a mix of residences, including 400 luxury apartments and 100 condo units. The plan also includes a 900 parking space underground garage, of which 400 of the spaces will be reserved for tenants. Although the tower is planned to be a mixed residence development, there will be no affordable housing or retail components.The tower will also aim for a LEED Silver certification. Stern is known for his love of limestone in New York, however only the base of the tower will be clad in limestone and the remainder of the building's exterior will take on precast concrete. However, one of the more striking components of the proposal is the makeover of the 1.7 acre park next door to 451 E. Grand.

Developer Proposes Dual Tower TOD for Milwaukee Avenue



Quote:
An empty lot near California and Milwaukee Avenues may soon make way for a large dual tower mixed use development, which would become the Logan Square neighborhood's largest by far. 1601 W. Division, LLC headed up by developer and former co-CEO of Intelligentsia Coffee Rob Buono, has proposed to build a 14 story tower and 10 story tower along a 427 foot stretch of Milwaukee Avenue where the Max Gerber showroom once stood. Buono, who also developed the new 1611 West Division in the Polish Triangle will be teaming up with Wheeler Kearns Architects again for this project.

Condos in New Gold Coast Tower to Fetch Upwards of $6M



Quote:
Approved by the Chicago Plan Commission back in January, the condos coming to 4 East Elm Street won't be cheap. According to a new listing, the large luxury units will start at $2.1 million and run upwards of $6 million. The 25 story tower will be comprised of only 35 condos, adding up to only two 3,000 square foot units per floor. Buyers will have an option to combine units to own an entire floor in the building. The tower will sport a parking podium with 74 spaces. New renderings of the Solomon Cordwell Buenz designed blue glass tower appeared recently on Buzz Buzz Home.

Large Glassy Polish Triangle Development Gets Rendered



Quote:
If developer LG Development Group gets its way, a whole stretch of storefronts near the Polish Triangle in Wicker Park will be razed to make way for this shiny seven story glass structure. The developer purchased the buildings between 1237-1253 N. Milwaukee Avenue and 1230-1240 N. Ashland Avenue last year, and in June, LG filed a zoning application for the properties to move forward with the plan that would add 58 new apartments and nearly 13,000 square feet of retail space to the area.

GEMS World Academy Nearly Done



Quote:
Nestled in the Lakeshore East neighborhood of highrises sits this, ahem, gem of a school. The first US campus for international private school system GEMS World Academy will be opening for the Fall 2014 semester soon, and it's already grabbing lots of attention for its colorful design by Chicago's own bKL Architecture, who've been making a name for themselves with creative glass-and-steel designs all around town.

The school is also planning a high school building in an adjacent lot, facing the river, as a second phase of this project:

Checking In on the Construction of the New City Megaproject



Quote:
Though the expected completion of New City is still a year away, major progress is being made on the construction of Structured Development's $260 million residential, retail and office space megaproject. The development's 19 story apartment tower is rapidly rising, and several other structures throughout the 8.5 acre site are also taking shape. Construction of the new development near Clybourn and Halsted began last December, and once completed in September 2015, New City will boast 199 apartments, 360,000 square feet of retail space, 40,000 square feet of office space and a huge parking garage with 1,100 spaces.
