Historic Bush Temple of Music to Get 15-Story Tower Addition



Quote:
This week's Chicago Plan Commission was an important one as several major proposals were presented, including the redevelopment of the historic Bush Temple of Music and a 15-story tower that would be attached to it. Developer Cedar St. Cos. acquired the building in 2014 and announced last year that it would be transforming the former piano factory into a mixed-use residential and retail project. The company, known for its FLATS micro-apartments, wanted to bring roughly 100 studio and one-bedroom apartments and 8,500-square-feet of commercial space to the building. However, the plan has since been bolstered with the addition of a 129-unit building that will fill in the space between the Bush Temple and the upcoming Mormon temple on Clark Street. And because the development qualifies as a transit-oriented development, the plan will include just 15 parking spaces for its 230 apartments.

Proposed West Loop Hotel/Office Tower Needs a Partner



Quote:
Plans to build a 44-story mixed-use hotel/office tower appear to be in a state of limbo until the developer can land a major tenant. The proposed building at 590 W. Madison first broke cover in in late 2014 and hopes to add 330 hotel rooms, a rooftop restaurant, and 616,000 square feet of office space to the western edge of the Central Business District between the Chicago River and Kennedy Expressway. Proposed by Florida-based Third Millennium Properties and designed by Chicago's Goettsch Partners, the 582-foot tower would become Chicago's tallest building west of Clinton Street if built. While the project has a hotel partner on board, the building was not going to move forward without a major office space commitment, according to a conversation Joseph Mizrachi of Third Millennium Properties had with Crain's earlier this month.

Work started?



Because the location was originally approved as a twin of ABN AMRO Plaza at 540 W. Madison (also owned by Third Millennium), zoning and other entitlements for 590 W. Madison were already in place. When the original plan evolved into Goettsch's taller design, the city allowed the project to proceed without reapplying for approvals -- provided construction started before mid September of 2015. Many development watchers were excited to see fencing go up at the north end of the site along Washington and Jefferson and demolition begin on a portion of the surface parking lot. Excitement turned to confusion when, instead of foundation equipment, mature trees arrived on the site. As it turns out, work had only commenced on a small pocket park included in the site plan. While no work on the actual building had taken place, the park landscaping was deemed sufficient to keep zoning intact past the city's exploding September, 2015 deadline. Without an anchor tenant signed to its office portion, it's unclear how soon a deal can be announced and work on 590 W. Madison can begin in earnest.

1,500 Rentals, New Tower Addition Proposed for Old Main Post Office



After months of silence, British developer Bill Davies has come forward with a new plan for Chicago's Old Main Post Office — rental units. The behemoth Art Deco building has been the focus of numerous plans, partnerships and potential sales since it was purchased by Davies in 2009 for $24 million. However, this week, a new plan for 1,500 apartments and a new tower addition have emerged for the Chicago landmark. According to Ellen Phillips, managing broker of Loop Apartments, Davies' International Property Developers North America Inc. is currently looking to gauge interest in the plan for new apartments at the site. If there is enough demand and interest in the proposal, Davies could start building rental units in the old post office building as early as this coming March. IPDNA is also seeking large-scale rental anchors for the major redevelopment, simply titled Olde Chicago Post Office.

The post office's redevelopment will be built in phases, with the first phase expected to be completed by the end of this year. IPDNA has teamed up with Chicago's Joe Antunovich of Antunovich Associates to lead design duties for the new plan. The majority of the new rental units that would be built for the post office will be quite small compared to the average apartment in Chicago.

Many thanks to desertpunk for his exhaustive updates on a variety of projects currently going on in Chicago.

In other news from SSP, the Northwestern University Biomedical lab has received its foundation permit for Phase I (14 stories). Construction is imminent (thankfully due to the mild winter weather here too).

The Cedar Hotel addition has also received it's building permit (18 stories) and should be rising soon as well.

60 meters, higher than the old one but not a world-beater.

So glad to see development moving forward at the old post office site. It is too large of a site and too well positioned to go unused.

Chicago's development is so sexy, love all the buzz going on. One of the most underrated cities in the world.

River North Apartment Tower to Replace Retro Restaurant

Quote:
The site is well-served by transit, including a Divvy bike share station, several bus routes, and the Brown and Purple "L" lines. It sits within a particularly active stretch of road, with developments at 635 and 612 North Wells ready to add to the streetwall. Site preparation began late last year and photos show the restaurant has been completely demolished. It's a scene that signals that the intensification of River North continues unabated, removing underperforming single-storey structures in favour of a more downtown-centric scale and use.
