I just love the new cladding design. It just shows that the cladding is truly the most important part of a building's non-structural design.

Tishman Speyer Development LLC proposes a 51-story office building with ground floor retail and commercial space. 190 accessory off-street parking spaces will be provided. The proposed development will also include a large landscaped plaza containing approximately 20,000 square feet of open space.

WHAT: 130 North Franklin, Chicago, Illinois

WHEN: Monday, April 20, 2015 at 6:00 pm

WHERE: The Franklin - Rustle & Roux - 227 W. Monroe Street, 2nd floor Cafeteria
This is the building in question:

..however, the design that will be presented on April 20th may be somewhat different since the new version is supposed to be a few stories taller with a much larger landscaped plaza (which may or may not replace the parking garage as previously rendered).

“Ambicioso” Plan Unveiled for Landmark Downtown Museum Complex

Written by Editor on April 21, 2015

https://youtu.be/wQjNXMS1JWw

"It seems like every architecture firm in Chicago has invoked Daniel Burnham’s signature words at one time or another:
'Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood.'
At this point it’s become cliché, because the quote is always trotted out when a design differs from the accepted norm to justify the architect’s imagination, saying by proxy, “I know it looks wacky, but Uncle Dan says it’s fine.” Because for some reason we’ve come to a point as a society and a city where architects feel they have to emasculate their designs and apologize for being creative.
There were no apologies at the opening gala of the 31st Chicago Latino Film Festival last weekend, where JGMA’s design for the proposed Ibero-American Tower was unveiled. The International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago wants to build an ambitious, colorful, standout complex on what appears to be the block bounded by LaSalle, Huron, Erie, and Wells Streets.







The building would include the following components:
Administrative offices
Ballroom
Spanish/Portuguese Language Institute
Museum
Bureau of Culture and Tourism
Restaurant/Piano Bar
Latino Cinematheque
Exhibition Gallery
1,000-seat theater
500-seat theater
300-seat theater
200-seat theater
Kids’ corner
Coffee shop/gift shop/book shop..."

CHICAGO will be the location of the Barack Obama Presidential Library and Museum, to be situated on the south side of the City, near the University of Chicago where the President was a faculty member for 11 years.

President Obama’s $600 Million Gift to Chicago: A Presidential Library

Maya Rhodan @m_rhodan

'“All the strands of my life came together and I really became a man when I moved to Chicago," Obama said..

...A 2014 study from the University of Chicago found that the library would be an “economic boon” for the city, attracting some 800,000 visitors a year, creating 1,900 permanent new jobs and generating $220 million in annual revenue. In all, the report found the library’s construction would boost Chicago’s economy by $600 million and create 3,280 new jobs...'

That area could use some development! It will be located near Washington Park, hopefully near the Garfield-Green El-train stop. There are so many holes in that area from urban decay, so there is a huge chance to benefit the area.

Ed Debevic's To Be Replaced By This Tower



Quote:
Last night, under the rafters of the old cable car powerhouse now serving up pizzas as Gino's East, developer JDL unveiled their new plan to replace the Ed Debevic's restaurant in River North with a new apartment tower. The community meeting began with an opening by Alderman Brendan Reilly who made mention of the unprecedented flood of new development proposals that are coming forth due to the improving economy. There are presently 80 projects in one way, shape or form proposed in the greater central core of the city. This particular project is going by the address of 640 North Wells Street and is sited on the Ed Debevic's property which stretches through the block between Ontario and Erie Streets. The project team includes Developer JDL, James Plunkard of Hartshorne Plunkard Architects and the traffic engineers of KLOA.

As proposed, the high-rise will stand at 22 stories (including a rooftop space), 251 apartments, 12,000 square feet of ground floor retail space and 117 parking spaces. The parking will be located on the second and third floor, minimizing the scale of the podium the tower rises from. The base incorporates a glass enclosed three level residential lobby and the Wells Street frontage of the parking levels are clad with a European porcelain material with semi transparent properties.

Groundbreaking is imminent (or may have already happened) for 833 N. Clark. A historic bank building directly to the south of this is being saved will have it's new drive-thru wrap around this new residential apartment building.

451 East Grand, which was approved late Dec 2014/early January 2015 will be starting construction soon, according to a friend on mine on the project.



I think the final height will be just under 850'

Four New Skyscrapers About to Sprout in Near North

'Well, this has been a long time coming.
After years of anticipation, we’re finally getting our first concrete look at the redevelopment plans for Atrium Village, the low- and mid-rise apartment complex at 300 West Hill Street in the city’s Near North neighborhood. Last year the Onni Group out of Vancouver coughed up $53 million for the property, and is now ready to move forward with big, big plans..'

New Streeterville Skyscraper to Scrape Sky, Fix Park

"Like a good neighbor, the new Loews Chicago Hotel played host to the Streeterville community Tuesday evening to introduce the potential new kid on the block, Jupiter Realty Company’s 465 North Park Drive. Alderman Brendon Reilly (42nd) let the public in on the updated plan for the site (Not this one – those are the old plans), a 513-foot, 45-story tower at the corner of North Park Drive and East Illinois Street..."

The final section of Phase II of the Chicago riverwalk was opened to the public on Saturday - It's called the River Theater and appears to have a lot of seating, with lovely views of the surrounding areas of the City - I think it turned out quite nice..

Also, the attached link provides design drawings of what the final, Phase 3 sections will ultimately look like, when completed next year:
