Mexican Hotel Chain Planning 82-Story Tower in West Loop


Live Aqua hotel in Mexico City

Quote:
As part of a large-scale expansion into U.S. markets with large Hispanic populations, Mexican hotel chain Grupo Posadas announced plans for a mammoth, 82-story West Loop tower late last week. While a company spokesman hasn't revealed the exact location of the Chicago expansion, according to Crain's, they did indicate they'll be partnering with Las Vegas-based Bighorn Capital on five locations, including Los Angeles, Miami, Houston and Washington. If the announcement feels sudden, that may be because the chain is in a hurry; they hope to finish by 2017 and start breaking ground this summer. The tower will be shared with another hotel by New York-based chain Dream Hotels, adding even more options to the city's already booming hotel market. As Chicago Architecture Blog points out, that timeline seems to be defying the laws of Chicago construction and development.

Massive 1,500-Unit Atrium Village Redevelopment Project Almost Ready to Dig In



Quote:
The redevelopment of Atrium Village will soon be underway, as groundbreaking on the major project is expected to take place next month. The existing site is a development layout typical of urban renewal schemes from the mid-20th century as far design is concerned: an inward focused community with limited interaction at the sidewalk while the structures sat in a "towers in the park" environment. The buildings consist of a nine-story mid-rise as well as eight three-story low-rise buildings placed into the interior of the block with surface parking lots, suburban styled empty green spaces and courtyards placed between them. One additional building that featured a limited amount of retail space was located along Division Street with a fortress-like facade that harkens back to when the neighborhood was a far less desirable area, located just a block away from the eastern fringe of the former Cabrini-Green public housing complex and its infamous legacy. ...

Gold Coast Jewel Shutters to Make Way for New Store and Apartment Tower



Quote:
The Sinclair, an upcoming apartment tower, is moving towards construction as demolition preparations have begun at the northwest corner of Clark and Division Streets. The existing Jewel-Osco store at the location, which has been the source of this project's commonly applied nickname of "Tower of Jewel" among development watchers, has officially closed as of last weekend and a small work crew has begun a tear down of the grocery store's interior. The project will become the city's second largest transit oriented development (TOD) presently under construction (after Block 37) as the new structures will sit directly on top of the CTA's newly expanded Clark/Division Red Line station which has entrances at each end of the block.

Local news reporting today that a Helmut Jahn-designed tower will be rising on the south end of the Michigan Avenue streetwall. Sadly, the design will not be released for a couple of months, according to an employee at his firm.

Local zoning from 2004 indicated that a building (more than likely residential) of no more than 35 stories and/or 425' tall is approved for the site (1000 S. Michigan Ave), however a local community group expert had indicated that they believe that the City would more than likely approve something taller, presumably under a zoning revision, depending on what the developer would like to do - Owner/developer has not been announced yet either, but stay tuned as additional information becomes available.

Late last week, the Chicago plan commission also approved this 22 story apartment building, on the site of the (incredibly annoying and soon-to-be-demolished) Ed Debevic's restaurant:

Another New South Loop Michigan Avenue Tower Because Why Not



Quote:
We just got through a week where a tremendous amount of new residential development was announced for the South Loop, and it looks like one slipped in just late enough to miss it on Friday. We knew that Oxford Capital Group, the fellows behind the Godfrey Hotel and the new LondonHouse hotel in the old London Guarantee Building, had recently bought the Essex Inn at Michigan Avenue and 8th Street and were planning to flip the low-rise annex next to the hotel into a highrise residential tower, but we didn't know what it would look like -- until now. Crain's has the first imagery of Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture's design for the 48-story apartment tower that would bring another 388 units to the neighborhood. HPA's design puts the bulk of the building on top of 8-story struts, a design that would be a striking addition to the Michigan Avenue streetwall facing Grant Park, and is likely intended to preserve some southern views for the hotel.

New 48-Story Apartment Project Planned for the South Loop



Quote:
Developer John Murphy has just announced a new 48-story apartment project for the South Loop. The building, in the middle of the 1300 block of South Michigan Avenue, features an all-glass SCB design and will include around 500 units, mostly studios and one-bedrooms. While the target market will be renters looking for luxury with lots of amenities, Murphy was quick to point out that he wasn't interested in the ultra-expensive luxury buildings popping up around the downtown area with prices over $4 per square foot. Instead, Murphy indicated that he wanted to be priced below $3 per square foot, which he referred to it as "affordable luxury."
