I don't really like how it sorta blocks the view looking down the river. Buildings on the chicago river should be set further back.

Studio Gang's 1,186-Foot Vista Tower Ready to Begin Construction

An announcement from Mayor Emanuel is expected today



Quote:
Skyscraper junkies rejoice, it’s official: construction on Studio Gang’s 93-story supertall Vista Tower is moving forward. According to Crain’s, an announcement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel is expected today and will reveal plans to break ground as early as next month.

While Magellan Development and Chinese partner Dalian Wanda Group officially opened their slick sales center on April 4th to market the Vista’s 405 luxury residences, they have since been mum on the precise number of units sold. Obviously pre-sales have gone quite well, reaching the critical point where the development team is confident to officially green-light the tower’s construction, which is anticipated to take four years.

10 Years Later, Studio Gang's Latest Hyde Park Tower Is Finally Happening
http://chicagoist.com/2016/09/19/ten_years_later.php



Quote:
BY STEPHEN GOSSETT IN NEWS ON SEP 19, 2016 1:41 PM

News came this week regarding a couple of Gang-designed projects, the most exciting of which is a start date for the long-discussed Solstice on the Park tower in Hyde Park. As reported by Hyde Park Herald and noted by Curbed Chicago, construction on the 26-story apartment building is slated to begin on Oct. 3.

The tower was designed way back in 2006, and as Curbed notes, it has since undergone a few conceptual transformations. Previous plans also called for a hotel to be included, along with 145 rental units. The hotel concept has been scrapped, however, and the rentals will number 250.

According to the Herald, the building will stand at 1634 E. 56th St. and developers said the project will take nearly two years to complete.

News on Wolf Point!

http://chicago.curbed.com/2016/9/21/...-point-details

Quote:
If Wolf Point South’s offices feature a tall lobby and are joined by high-ceilinged luxury condominiums, the planned tower could likely exceed 980 feet to achieve supertall status — especially with the rumored addition of a spire. The apartment high-rise at the east edge of the parcel is reportedly on-track to break ground in the*first quarter of 2017. Both future Wolf Point towers are designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli architects.

Will an 80-story timber tower join Chicago’s Riverline mega-development?
http://chicago.curbed.com/2016/10/11...ber-skyscraper

Quote:
BY AJ LATRACE @AJLATRACE OCT 11, 2016, 2:53P

Could Chicago claim another world’s tallest record? If a wild new conceptual design for an 80-story wooden tower from architects Perkins + Will moves forward, then Chicago could claim the record for having the world’s tallest timber tower. ArchDaily revealed the renderings late last week and offered a few hints about the concept. According to the story, the building is a “part of a masterplan along the Chicago River,” which helps narrow down the location of the project. Considering that the design concept comes from Perkins + Will and that it’s a part of a master planned project, this leads us to believe that this could become a part of the Riverline mega development which just broke ground last month.

Dubbed River Beech Tower, the team working on the project tell ArchDaily that seeing the construction of such a design is entirely possible.

But beyond the connection to Perkins + Will, the renderings for this wooden skyscraper line up with previously released images of the future Riverline. The crossing joist design at the base of the tower is yet another giveaway. It looks like Perkins + Will is offering another design concept for what would become the tallest tower at the future Riverline project.

While very striking and certainly unique, the wild high-rise concept from Perkins + Will is not the first proposal for a wooden skyscraper along the Chicago River. A few years ago, architect Michael Charters unveiled a vision for a 30+ story wooden skyscraper roughly at the same area along South Branch of the Chicago River. The design ultimately earned Charters an honorable mention in the eVolo Magazine Skyscraper Competition for 2013.

Construction has already started on the first tower at Riverline—a 29-story tower which will feature 420 rental units when completed. However, will this slender timber tower replace the 18-story, 251-unit tower currently planned for the site?

26-story South Loop tower gets first permits
http://chicago.curbed.com/2016/10/5/...r-flyboy-mural

Quote:
BY AJ LATRACE @AJLATRACE OCT 5, 2016, 1:28P

The South Loop neighborhood is about to get another big tower project. At 26-stories tall, the new tower for 1136 S. Wabash Ave. is not going to be breaking any height records, but with 320 units, 9,000 square feet of retail, and 143 spaces for vehicle parking, it’s quite a dense development. Initially proposed as a 24-story, 280-unit building, it now appears that Keith Giles, the project’s developer, is looking to max out the total units and height allowed for the site. The city issued new construction permits for the project yesterday which will allow the developer to build out the tower’s foundation.

The building’s glassy design comes from Chicago-based SCB. According to elevations in the zoning application for the building, the tower will stand on a four-story podium which will house ground-level retail space along with three stories of parking.

It should also be noted that the site is also the location of one of the better known Flyboy murals from famed local artist and muralist Hebru Brantley. Judging by the elevations and renderings for the project, it is highly likely that the podium base of the new building will block the popular mural. Most recently, Brantley’s Flyboy character not only made an appearance in the music video for Chance the Rapper’s song “Angels,” but it influenced the art direction of the video. Fans of Brantley’s work might want to head to the location to get photos of the mural while they can.

More details for the massive Union West development emerge
http://chicago.curbed.com/2016/10/5/...-fulton-market

Quote:
BY AJ LATRACE @AJLATRACE OCT 5, 2016, 11:28A

Two months ago, a large 442-unit, three-building apartment plan for the West Loop broke cover, but today there are more details about the specific unit counts for each building in the planned development referred to as Union West. The project comes from developers ZOM Mid-Atlantic and Verde Communities who are looking to plant a trio of interconnected towers that would occupy nearly half of a city block. The different addresses for the buildings will be 933-35 W. Washington Boulevard, 11-25 N. Morgan Street, 22 N. Sangamon Street, and 942-44 W. Madison Street. The development will be located just a couple blocks south of the Morgan Green Line station and a block south of the neighborhood’s famous Restaurant Row.

The buildings are being designed by Chicago’s bKL Architecture, a firm that has worked on numerous apartment projects in the last couple of years, including the recently opened MILA apartment tower in the Loop and Wolf Point West tower in River North. The buildings will range in height, going from eight stories, to 17 stories, to 19 stories tall.

The tallest of the three will feature 265 total apartments and about 6,300 square feet of retail space. The majority of the rental units will be one-bedrooms (138), but it will also include 83 studios, 13 convertibles, and 31 two-bedroom apartments. The tower will not contain any three-bedroom apartments.

The second tallest tower will feature a total of 151 apartments, with the unit breakdown coming to 68 one-bedroom apartments, 40 studios, 13 convertibles, 15 two-bedroom, and 15 three-bedroom units. It will include about 1,400 square feet of space for retailers.

And finally, the third (and shortest) new building will feature a total of 26 rentals, which will be evenly split between one- and two-bedroom units. It will also feature 1,700 square feet of commercial space.

The total numbers between the three buildings translates to 123 studio apartments, 26 convertibles, 219 one-bedroom units, 59 two-bedroom units, and 15 three-bedroom apartments. The total combined retail space between the buildings comes to roughly 9,400 square feet of space. As proposed, Union West is one of the largest new developments in the pipeline for the West Loop, however, there is no shortage of new projects looking to eventually be built in the booming neighborhood.
