Studio Gang Architects, led by renowned Chicago architect Jeanne Gang, has been selected to design a major new residence hall and dining commons on the north end of the University of Chicago campus, officials announced.

The signature facility, which will house roughly 800 undergraduates, is designed around the College’s distinctive House System, with an emphasis on building community. Studio Gang will collaborate with Mortenson Construction on the project, which is expected to open in 2016...

^Additional info from an SSP forumer about that tower, as well as another, 500'+ residential tower right on Michigan Ave:

More interesting, DRW is finally gearing up to replace State & Elm. Retail, just 40 units, 80 parking spots, 335' tall and designed by none other than SCB.


....
3D renderings will most likely be forthcoming.

John Buck Moving In On Millennium Park Location For New Tower


Curbed


Quote:
By: Micah Maidenberg July 29, 2013

The John Buck Co. plans to join the swarm of developers convinced that demand for downtown apartments will outpace the surge in rental properties already under construction.

A venture led by Buck wants to build a 45-story residential tower at 200-214 N. Michigan Ave. with about 432 units, according to a zoning application filed last week with the city of Chicago. Well-known for its office towers, the firm has also developed apartments, such as a 24-story rental building in downtown Evanston.

Buck's partner in the project is Becker Ventures LLC, which already owns the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago a few steps away at 230 N. Michigan Ave., according to the application.

The project, which also would include about 24,900 square feet of retail space, is likely to be a key test for Blake Johnson, who was promoted to president of the Chicago-based developer earlier this year.

it's the old, 22-story beige office building directly west of the plaza, facing the Inland Steel building across the plaza:

Proposed Loop Hyatt gets financing

By: Abraham Tekippe July 30, 2013

A venture led by developer John Murphy has obtained a $45 million loan to convert a vintage office building overlooking Chase Plaza into a Hyatt Hotel.

The venture this month obtained a loan from U.S. Bank N.A. to convert 100 W. Monroe St. into a 257-room hotel, according to property records and a news release issued by Chicago-based Hyatt Hotels Corp.

Dubbed Hyatt Chicago The Loop, the hotel will include a restaurant and bar, a rooftop lounge and more than 5,000 square feet of meeting space
, according to the release...

150 North Riverside Tower Plans Come Together


http://blog.chicagoarchitecture.info...ttachment/470/


Quote:
For the first time, the developers, architects, and lawyers behind the plan to turn a piece of industrial land on the Chicago River into a public park and unusually shaped office building have talked publicly about their plan.

Developer John O’Donnell and U.S. Equities want to build a 53-story, 720-foot-tall skyscraper in the space between Randolph Place (165 North Canal Street) and the Chicago River. Currently, it is a collection of railroad tracks owned by Amtrak, and used by both Amtrak and Metra trains.

Mr. O’Donnell has had his eye on this property for a long time. He spent the last ten years trying to put something together for this parcel; even before he struck out on his own, when he worked for developer John Buck. Things appear to finally be falling into place to make that wish happen.

The land in question has been in its current state for at least half a century. Looking at maps as far back as 1893 and 1898, it appears this piece of land has always been mostly railroad tracks, occasionally with a three- or four-story building or three jammed in along the water.

Not that many years ago, there was a plan to build two very large towers here, along with the now traditional eight-story Chicago parking podium. The people behind that proposal couldn’t make it happen, and the city’s approval was recently revoked.

The current plan chucks out the eight-story, 850-car parking garage in favor of a one-story garage for a measly 81 cars that also serves as a porte-cochère for the skyscraper, keeping the loading and unloading traffic off of Randolph Street. There is also parking planned for 25 bicycles.

Interesting Wolf Point render with River Point included:

Note the West Tower of Wolf point that barely reaches above neighboring roofs.

I still think they should have blown up the apperal mart and used all that space! OR get rid of the west tower and have a bigger public area at the bottom by spreading out the other 2 buildings. Just my 2 cents. Either way, having those two built there will definately shift the skyline a bit. I like it.

The image is inaccurate - per your post last week, desertpunk, if River Point does end up being built higher with the roof at 702', then the rendering should show it being about 5 floors (approx. 50') lower than the second, Wolf Point office tower (750' tall). Regardless, it's currently shown as being around the same height as River Bend (333 W. Wacker), which is only about 480'(?), when current construction plans for River Point indicate that it is about 650' tall, not including the possible height increase to 702'.

Yep, once again, these renders distort reality to showcase a particular project. My surprise is that the West tower is part of Wolf Point yet it appears shorter in this render than how it likely will when built. Either way, it's not the best representation of how things will look when fully built out (which only fills me with greater anticipation!).
