Loyola Poject Closer To Building



Quote:
It looks like Loyola University’s big new project for the Gold Coast will make the transition from paper to real life. The Chicago Plan Commission has given its blessing to a 36-story apartment tower and a 10-story classroom building to be built along North State Street between East Chestnut Street and East Pearson Street. The project still needs full city council approval, but that’s pretty much a rubber stamp process at this point.

Both buildings have been designed by friends-of-the-blog, Chicago’s own SCB. But while the university will be the developer of the classroom building, it has hired Newmark to develop the residential tower.

The residential tower doesn’t have a name yet, but has the legal address of 1 East Chestnut Street, which is probably good enough. It will be 410 feet tall with 367 apartments.

While it may be intuitive to think that since the tower is being developed by Loyola and is in the midst of Loyola’s Water Tower campus, it’s being designed for and marketed to students. But it turns out that is not the case. According to the university, college students can’t afford to live downtown and will continue to be bused in from Loyola’s Lake Shore campus.

New Downtown Hospital Slims Down To Court Neighbors



Quote:
The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago’s new hospital plan has lost some weight, and gained some fans.

The RIC is moving from its current tower at 345 East Chicago Avenue to a new building to be erected two blocks away at 630 North McClurg Court, formerly the location of the CBS Building.

When the plans were first presented to the public five months ago, there was little opposition. Neighbors expressed the usual concerns about traffic and light, but not at the usual volume and without the usual anger.

The RIC has gone through the neighborhood’s complaints and suggestions and made some adjustments to its plan.

Venture Seeks 23-Story Office Tower for Wells & Randolph


Curbed

Quote:
Local developer J. Paul Beitler is teaming with Next Realty, owner of the parking garage at 200 W Randolph, to promote a mid-size office tower that would supplant said garage. The proposal, while beefy enough, doesn't get swept up in a pissing contest for biggest and best (for that try River Point and Wolf Point). Twenty-three stories and 400,000 square feet are sought...

New West Loop Office Tower Project Seeks Riverfront Access

Quote:
In the race to start Chicago's next generation of office towers, veteran developer John O'Donnell is stuck in pit row, at least when it comes to selling downtown Ald. Brendan Reilly on his planned West Loop high-rise.

Mr. O'Donnell wants to build a 1.2 million-square-foot office building on a prime parcel at 150 N. Riverside Plaza. But Ald. Reilly (42nd) has yet to sign off on Mr. O'Donnell's plan, saying he wants it to include a ground-level park where the public can walk along the Chicago River. “That has yet to come to fruition,” said Mr. Reilly, noting that outdoor areas proposed so far are elevated, where they would be easily accessible to office tenants but not the general public.

Mr. O'Donnell has abandoned his request for a $20 million tax-increment financing subsidy from the city, Mr. Reilly said. Instead, the developer is asking the city to hand over an adjacent parcel the city believes is worth $4 million to $5 million — a piece of land Mr. O'Donnell would need, along with air rights over Amtrak rails, to cobble together enough contiguous land to support a skyscraper. “If they're looking for that kind of public freebie, there has to be a public benefit,” Mr. Reilly said. “What does the public get?”

The alderman's position complicates Mr. O'Donnell's efforts to develop the site and could potentially put him at a disadvantage as he courts big office tenants to anchor his proposed tower. Developers have proposed about a dozen new downtown office buildings, many more than the market can currently support, so the competition to land an anchor tenant is especially fierce. A significant delay because of negotiations with the city could prove costly. “We're aware of the alderman's concerns and have been working with his office to address them,” said Mr. O'Donnell, who declined to comment further.

Mr. Reilly also has moved to terminate the city's existing development plan for the site, meaning it will revert back to its existing zoning. But it's likely that Mr. O'Donnell still could build a big office tower under the original zoning. Mr. Reilly described the move as nothing more than a procedural step, so “we start with a clean palette.”

Mr. O'Donnell, a former executive at the John Buck Co., bought the site from developer Michael Reschke for $12.5 million in December 2011.

Yeah word is, it'll be roughly the same height as River Point (700 ft) but first, they have to gain approval for their scheme.

Spire Site Up For Bid; Related Interested



Breaking News

From WSJ.com's
Developments Blog
Hole-Sale Real Estate
Up for grabs: a 76-foot deep cylindrical hole in the heart of Chicago.

First-round bids are due April 23 on a soured loan backed by the site of what was once to be the country's tallest skyscraper. About five years after construction stopped on the planned 150-story Chicago Spire luxury residential tower, an Irish government agency has put the note formerly held by the defunct Anglo Irish Bank Corp. on the block.

Jones Lang LaSalle JLL +0.68%is marketing the 2.2-acre site—including a large circular foundation near Lake Michigan—for Ireland's National Asset Management Agency. The agency wants to recoup $93 million from the sale, say people familiar with the matter. Any note buyer will need to consider the added cost of gaining title to the site. The property is still owned by developer Garrett Kelleher's firm. A foreclosure proceeding has been tied up in court for years.

"There's clearly been a rapid appreciation in residential land values, but at the same time you've got to keep reminding yourself that you're buying a nonperforming loan," says Curt Bailey, president of Related Midwest, a unit of Stephen Ross's Related Cos. that has expressed interest in the site.

------------
Related has been doing a lot of rentals lately...but they're also doing the $13.5 billion Hudson Yards in NYC. ANYTHING is possible.

Old Post Office Development Back On Track With Hotel, Residential, Retail, Office Space and a 100-Story Skyscraper

Plans for a massive 5.2 million-square-foot renovation and restoration of the empty Post Office at Canal and Van Buren, and accompanying new West Loop development are once again moving forward.


Old Post Office renovation proposal Phase 1 rendering from east

If approved by the City of Chicago, the project would turn the 2.7-million-square-foot hulk of a building into a bustling hub of activity.

The latest version of the plan was made public tonight (April 9, 2013) by Architect Joe Antunovich of Antunovich and Associates. The cost of the mixed-use development could run as high as $1.5 billion for the first phase alone.

The developer behind the enormous project is the British company International Property Developers. It submitted plans for the enormous project to the city in December of 2012, and is hoping to get final approval from the city in the next couple of months. Tonight, IPD billed the project as “the rebirth of a landmark.”



The fix-up is planned for two phases. The first will concentrate on the old Post Office building, and the Holiday Inn at 506 West Harrison Street. The latter building would be demolished to make way for a parking structure with direct access to the CTA’s Clinton Blue Line platform.

From the parking structure (to the west of the Post Office building) walkways over six levels would connect directly to the old building. The Post Office would be completely renovated, including the grand lobby. When finished it will offer access to 800,000 square feet of retail space.



Rising from the east side of the Post Office building will be a 1,000-foot-high, 100-story [residential] tower.

By the numbers, in addition to the retail space, there will be a total of 2,900 residential units, 525,000 square feet of office space, 5,700 parking spaces and 320 rooms available for a high-end hotel.



The total time for completion of the project is estimated at five to seven years, but the first residents could conceivably move in within 18 months from now, if all goes well, Antunovich said. The first step is asbestos abatement prior at the old Post Office prior to the beginning of renovation.

Phase two, planned for a future date, would include two additional towers, with one rising up to the maximum height allowed by federal regulations — 2,000-feet. That would make the nearby Willis Tower the second-tallest skyscraper in town. The second phase would add 3,500 residential units, 1.5 million square feet of office space and 920 hotel rooms.

The development would restore a grand old building, Antunovich said.

[...]
So it now looks like a 100 story residential, a 120 story office/? tower, and at least one additional 60 story hotel.

seems a great project, but it would be much more beautiful if they create more public space
