27 Story Loop Hilton Garden Inn Starts To Rise



Quote:
The new Hilton Garden Inn coming to the small wedge of space on Wacker Place between the Church of Christian Scientists and the Chicago Motor Club Building is a bit of an oddball development for being so skinny, but the hotel is well on its way to filling out the site. Construction crews were first spotted in June, but now the new 27 story tower has its foundation and ground floor erected. The GREC Architects designed hotel tower will rise to an approximate height of 222 feet when it is completed.

McCormick Place Hotel and Arena Construction To Start In Early '15



Quote:
Tuesday night, the 3rd ward's alderman Pat Dowell hosted a public meeting where McCormick Place representatives presented an update on the ongoing development project to expand the convention facility's footprint by constructing a new Pelli Clarke Pelli designed arena and events center, a new high rise hotel and convention center, as well as a new data center. The meeting was primarily meant to address neighborhood residents' concerns about the traffic and parking implications of the new construction and facilities, but there were a few updates about the buildings themselves.

The 51 story hotel building, set to be a Marriott Marquis with 1,200 rooms and considerable conference and event space, as well as the 10,000 seat stadium, which will host DePaul University's basketball games and be available for concerts and other events, will both start construction in January 2015. The stadium should be completed by February 2017, with the hotel's completion following in May.

Goodbye Pizza-Adorned Gino's East, Hello 444-Unit Tower



Quote:
Gino's East pizzeria has left the building, and the abandoned photorealistic foodstuffs will soon be taken down and demolished along with the rest of the building, to make way for Magellan Development and Mac Management's second, effectively simultaneous River North apartment project. The 41-story apartment tower, designed by Loewenberg Architects, has been approved by the Chicago Plan Commission at the same meeting as Mac and Magellan's other tower set to replace the Howard Johnson Inn.

"HoJos Tower" Cleared For Takeoff



Quote:
The 35 story apartment tower intended to be built at the current site of the '50s-throwback Howard Johnson Inn doesn't yet have a name, but it has been cleared for takeoff. Generally referred to simply as "the HoJo tower" based on the motel it's set to replace, the 382-foot apartment tower is designed by bKL Architecture and features considerable retail space on the LaSalle and Superior streets it faces and a small pocket park on the Wells Street side. On Thursday of last week, the Chicago Plan Commission approved the project, so it can begin construction as scheduled early next year.

Earlier presentations of the building put the height at 398 feet but the final height submitted to the planning board is 382 feet, with three floors having been removed by the project developer and not at the request of the city.

410 East Grand Finally Breaks Ground



Quote:
One sign of a recovering economy is real estate developers jockeying to build new buildings so that they’re ready when the economy improves. An even better sign is when old projects that seemed dead get pulled off the shelves, dusted off, and actually happen.

410 East Grand under constructionThat’s the case at 410 East Grand Avenue in Streeterville. We started reporting on it in 2011, but its history goes back further than that. But since it was approved by the city 989 days ago (that’s 141 weeks), we’ve hard bupkis. Now Streeterville Spy Jody has sent in pictures of actual work happening at the site....

Block 37 to get Loop's biggest apartment tower in decades


SCB

Quote:
The owner of the Block 37 shopping mall downtown is gearing up to start construction on the biggest apartment tower the Loop has seen in decades, betting the white-hot rental market downtown has room to run.

CIM Group, the Los Angeles-based real estate firm that bought Block 37 two years ago, announced today it has secured initial permits to launch a 34-story, 690-unit apartment tower on top of the four-story mall across the street from the Macy's department store on State Street.

The statement confirms a Crain's report from March that CIM was preparing to launch a rental tower at Block 37, long considered one of downtown's most snake-bitten properties.

Designed by Chicago architecture firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz & Associates Inc., the tower will be the largest apartment building by unit count the central business district has seen in years and the biggest rental structure in the broader downtown market since developer Steve Fifield completed the 848-unit Alta at K Station in 2010.

Renderings For the New McCormick Hotel


spyguy

Quote:
It was just a week ago that a plan for yet another new hotel at McCormick Place was unveiled, thanks to a single teased render posted by the Prairie District Neighborhood Alliance on Facebook. However, we now have full set of renders of McHugh Construction's proposed hotel project for McCormick Place to look at. The renders provide a more complete look at McHugh's ambitious project, which combined with McPier's ongoing development project, represent a massive amount of new development in only a two block span of Cermak Road which will transform the area.

Construction of New Gateway Development Well Underway



Quote:
After several alterations, redesigns and public meetings, West Loop residents reluctantly approved the proposed Gateway development for Green & Madison last summer, which is set to bring 167 apartments and 95 parking spaces to the already booming area. Recently, YoChicago spotted a tower crane at the site, signaling that construction of the new development has started, and indeed, it most certainly has. Curbed photographer Harry Carmichael swung by yesterday to check out the site, and was surprised to see that caissons have already been installed and elevator pits are currently being formed.

4 East Elm Breaking Ground Soon



Quote:
Ground will be broken on the new 4 East Elm condo tower on September 16. The 23 story tower will bring the first condos to the Gold Coast since 2007, before the real estate crash. The tower will contain only 35 units, which are expected to be quite pricey when completed.

500 N Milwaukee Avenue is Still Waiting for Action



Quote:
It's now been nine months since the city approved a developer's plan to wipe out the blighted stretch of buildings on Milwaukee Avenue just north of Grand and Halsted, and to erect two new structures on the busy corner, but there has yet to be any movement on the project. Back when the Chicago Plan Commission gave the plan the green light in January, the Chicago Architecture Blog hinted that the design could still change, and now there is a new, more detailed rendering of the residential and retail complex.




The project was first announced in February 2013, as a project from developer Contemporary Concepts, and was conceived to be a 16 story building with 240 apartment units and office space. Fast forward to last October, and Fifield Companies took over the project, and reintroduced a Pappageorge/Haymes designed two building complex. Fifield later dropped out of the deal, but developer Urban Form Investments pushed on and took the proposal to the Chicago Plan Commission earlier this year for approval (which it received). The plan includes 227 residential units, 16,000 square feet of commercial space and 113 parking spaces.

It’s Going to be Huge: Details and Diagrams of 451 East Grand

Quote:
It’s big. Really big. Really quite big. The biggest building to hit North Lake Shore Drive since… well… ever. We’re talking about Realted Midwest’s 451 East Grand Avenue, the new residential tower designed by New York’s Robert A. Stern & Associates, and proposed to be built right behind Related’s first Chicago tower, the ever-so-shiny 500 Lake Shore Drive.

While it’s true that 451 is not fully on Lake Shore Drive, it’s half a block removed, it’s sure going to look and feel like lakefront property. That’s because this 67-story building is going to loom a whopping 843 feet over the gateway to Navy Pier. So, visually, it’s an 84-story building. On the lakefront. You’ll be able to watch this monster rise from Indiana.

And we mean “monster” in a good way. Because the design is lovely. It’s very New York. Also in a good way. Because Chicago has a variety of different and remarkable skyscraper designs, but not many that have that Park Avenue aesthetic.

[...]

And Robert Stern will pull off another masterpiece! Also, the McCormick hotel has a perfect scale! The small buildings at the base beautifully break up the lower level facades and keep them at a human scale while still allowing a 30 story tower.
