Looks very cool, still I kind of wished they had left a bit more space for park/public space at the river front at that point. Seems like the perfect spot.
It does include some pretty decent public space though it seems like.
Cool building

The buildings supposedly only cover 22% of the area, and the rest is park space/ public area.

Also, this is a billion dollar project. So you can expect Rahm to push this big time. This is pretty much a done deal.

Another thing to mention, the total space of all the buildings will be 3.7 million square feet which is massive, considering the Trump International Chicago covers 2.6 million, and the Sears tower covers 3.8 million square feet

BP Bridge by Frank Gehry in Chicago

The famous architect Frank Gehry has created an incredible bridge BP, located in Millennium Park in Chicago. Bridge over Lake Michigan fits perfectly into the landscape of Chicago and is made entirely in the spirit of Gary.

Poetry Foundation Headquarters is a creative and innovative use of space

The Poetry Foundation's mission of promoting poetry to a more visible and influential position in American culture is realized in their new headquarters building - a tranquil space amid downtown Chicago. Led by noted designer, John Ronan, the iconic structure features a distinctive perforated screen wall that provides a feeling of sanctuary, while maintaining a connection to the urban environment. Arup conducted advanced structural analyses on several options (including tensioned cable) to optimize the design of the 35ft-tall freestanding screen wall with its large opening. The final design relies on a simple but elegant post and beam frame to brace the perforated zinc panel walls - a unique and economical solution. Between the screen wall and building lies a landscaped garden symbolizing the change between the "hustle and bustle" of the street and the tranquility within the Foundation's headquarters.

Collaboration between Arup, the architect and building services engineers resulted in a finely tuned structural steel design that meets the architect's ambitious vision for a large, column-free open space within the building. For example, suspended floors are cantilevered in two directions to form the boundary of the lobby and lightwell areas.

The original design employed an elaborate jigsaw pattern on the ground-floor concrete slab. Structural analysis revealed that the concept carried a high risk of concrete cracking. By making small alterations to the jointing layout and the order in which the concrete strips were poured, Arup helped achieve the desired look in a more efficient and cost-effective and better-performing manner, pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved with concrete.

Using 3D virtual modeling throughout the design process allowed the architect and the design team to envision the new building in real time, resulting in creative and innovative use of spaces within the building enclosure.

Things are finally starting to look up! Also, it may be 50 stories instead of 45 stories, we may get the old height. I did a quick calculation, and it seems like the full height would be 220m, or 721 feet.

A bold new setting for interdisciplinary research, teaching and global outreach

Ann Beha Architects' adaptive reuse of the former Chicago Theological Seminary and two historic row houses, and the integration of a 38,000 sq ft new Research Pavilion will create a centralised setting for the University of Chicago's Department of Economics and Becker Friedman Institute for Research in Economics.

The design engages historic preservation with contemporary design, establishing a dialogue between new and old, and extending the lives of heritage buildings, but setting them, and their modern companions, in a new enclave that is welcoming and unified. The site approach opens the former Seminary to the street, unifying its two wings and repurposing its interior spaces into collaborative settings.

The relocation of a city service alley creates a substantial site for a new Research Pavilion. The site will connect to the former Seminary and two historic row houses. The massing, articulation and materials of the Research Pavilion respond to the organisation of the row houses. The new building is clearly contemporary, but establishes a dialogue with its historic neighbours.

The Research Pavilion ties to the vocabulary of design established for the interventions on the former Seminary as well. The first initiative of this type at the University, this inclusive approach will set the precedent for future campus development, optimising existing buildings, creating green space, and carefully integrating contemporary design.

Downtown Apartment Owners Face Boom In New Building

Quote:
Downtown apartment landlords are starting 2013 on a strong note, but they will face a test over the next two years, when developers add more than 5,200 units to the market.

Effective rents at Class A, or top-tier, downtown apartment buildings were $2.58 a square foot in the fourth quarter, unchanged from the third quarter but up 6.2 percent from a year earlier, according to Appraisal Research Counselors, a Chicago-based consulting firm. Class A rents have jumped 24 percent since hitting bottom in 2009, as many downtown residents have piled into apartments and shunned condominiums.

Demand isn't likely to cool off anytime soon, according to Appraisal Research Vice-President Ron DeVries. “We're going to start out this year with a bang,” he said at a Tuesday luncheon at the Standard Club downtown.

The question is whether demand will be strong enough to absorb the flood of new apartments under construction. Developers are on track to complete 2,695 units this year and 2,530 in 2014, he said. In the coming months, the first residents will start moving into Coast, a 499-unit tower in the Lakeshore East development being built by Magellan Development Group LLC, and a 500-unit building that Related Midwest is developing at 500 N. Lake Shore Drive.

One reason to be worried: Absorption, or the change in the number of leased downtown apartments, totaled just 1,100 apartments in 2012. At that rate, it will take about five years to soak up all the new apartments. The counterargument: Absorption has been artificially low because there is effectively a shortage of apartments downtown. More renters will emerge when more apartments become available, or “supply will induce demand,” Mr. DeVries said. “I don't view this as a five-year supply issue,” he said.

While apartment developers are building as fast as they can, it's a different story in the downtown condo market, where high-rise development has stopped. But condo sales have rebounded and prices have stabilized after a brutal downturn, and some developers are moving forward with smaller, boutique-style projects, Appraisal Research Vice-President Gail Lissner said at the luncheon.

Newcastle Plans 35 Story Tower Near Loyola Campus


Curbed

Quote:
Newcastle Ltd. plans to build a 35-story, 367-unit apartment tower in the Gold Coast, aiming to capitalize on the scorching downtown rental market.

Newcastle Senior Vice President Peter Tortorello confirmed the Chicago-based investment firm's plan, adding that Newcastle expects to buy the parcel at the southeast corner of State and Chestnut streets from Loyola University Chicago next year and break ground by the third quarter of 2013.

Mr. Tortorello declined to say how much Newcastle has agreed to pay for the land. Proceeds from the sale will help Loyola fund construction of a 10-story, $63 million business school building immediately south of Newcastle's tower. “Chestnut is close to Michigan Avenue, close to the lake, close to all the institutions and River North,” he said. “It appeals to a wide variety of potential renters.”

The skyscraper would offer a mixture of studio units and one- and two-bedroom apartments, 185 parking slots, an amenity floor and 3,200 square feet of street-level retail space, he said.

Fifield Plans Taller Building In The West Loop



Quote:
Faced with a crowded field of developers looking to launch downtown's next office towers, developer Steve Fifield has decided to go up.

Mr. Fifield now plans to build as high as 75 stories, with up to 1.4 million square feet, on adjacent West Loop sites. Previously he pitched pitching a pair of 20-story, 490,000-square-foot structures at 601 and 625 W. Monroe St.

“Several tenants we've talked to are more interested in the larger building,” Mr. Fifield said. “If you can't fight them, join them. The idea is to go from doing medium-sized buildings with no architectural significance to a landmark-type building.”

t is a departure from Mr. Fifield's past. Although he has been on a run of apartment towers in Chicago and Los Angeles in recent years, he has put up dozens of office buildings in the West Loop and in the suburbs, most between 300,000 and 500,000 square feet. His largest was a 30-story, 645,170-square-foot tower at 200 N. LaSalle St. completed in 1984.

Mr. Fifield's thinking has evolved because of input from potential office tenants and intense competition from other developers. A recent Crain's Chicago Business case study identified more than 8.1 million square feet of proposed new office buildings downtown, far more than current demand. Proposed towers range from 350,000 to 1.2 million square feet.

800 Unit JDS Maryville Development In Affordable Housing Snag



Quote:
UPTOWN — A developer who hopes to build a $220 million project with luxury residential units in Uptown hinted that affordable housing activists shouldn't hold their breath expecting him to offer 20 percent of the units in his project at a discount.

But he is willing to compromise, he told DNAinfo.com Chicago.

Since his first pitch at a public meeting in November, JDL Development President James Letchinger has shown Uptown several different versions of his proposal for glass towers in a Tax Increment Financing district by the lake.

Letchinger's plan for the Montrose/Clarendon TIF district faces mounting opposition from affordable housing advocates, including activist group Organization of the Northeast, a member of the 46th Ward Zoning and Development Committee.

ONE argues that the plan to build 856 luxury rental units at Montrose and Clarendon needs more affordable options.

The zoning committee reviewed the latest version of the project on Jan. 28, and will have at least one more meeting, on Feb. 25, before taking an advisory vote on the project.
