Sending Pegasus Aflight : Preliminary bKL design revealed for Buck Tower at 200 North Michigan



Quote:
Chris Bentley of The Architects Newspaper today gave us the first look at a preliminary design by bKL Architecture for the 45-story residential tower John Buck is looking to construct at 200 North Michigan. There's no full-up view of the building, but the street level rendering published by Bentley has a definite 1950's, almost Lapidusian vibe, the tower set back on at least three sides from a diaphanous, greenish-blue, shifting toward turquoise base.

The site is currently occupied by the six-story Tobey Building, by Holabird and Root, dating from 1927.



According to a July report by Micah Maidenberg in Crain's Chicago Business, the building was acquired for $20 million in 2006 by an affiliate of Becker Ventures LLC (no relation, alas), which is Buck's partner on this project. No word on a groundbreaking date. The development needs to win the approval of local Alderman Brendan Reilly, who Bentley reports has set his first community meeting to consider the development for September 12.

Plan would shoehorn hotel onto Wacker Place


http://www.chicagoarchitecture.info/...e-Loop/CAI.php

Quote:
Updated: September 12, 2013 2:19AM

How valuable can a patch of downtown land be? Consider an empty lot at 66 E. Wacker Place, just off Michigan Avenue. At 4,800 square feet, it’s only a little larger than a standard residential parcel in Chicago. “It’s almost a New York-sized lot,” one insider said. It’s enough to hold a 27-story hotel.

That’s the development plan of the property’s owner, Rhode Island-based Magna Hospitality Group. The company hinted at its plans for the hotel in an otherwise routine piece of paperwork filed with City Hall. It is appealing a decision by zoning officials that prevents Magna from eliminating off-street loading space as part of the hotel’s design.

A source said Magna intends to build a necessarily slender Hilton Garden Inn on the property. It will be next to the landmark Chicago Motor Club building at 68 E. Wacker Place. There, a separate owner plans to convert the long-vacant office building with a handsome Art Deco lobby into a Hampton Inn.

Developer to Break Ground on 35-Story High-Rise



Quote:
CHICAGO-Locally-based Newcastle Limited intends to break ground any day on its 35-story apartment building on the corner of State and Chestnut streets here.

The developer acquired the project site from Loyola University Chicago. The building, when completed in the spring of 2015, will include studios, convertible, one- and two-bedroom apartments, along with parking and 3,300 square feet of street-level retail space, the company stated on Tuesday.

The 367-unit building will be designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz and will join some nine residential projects currently under construction in downtown Chicago, totaling more than 3,000 units that are expected to be available next year

^Not really - it's basically a rectangle with angles sliced out of the vertical and horizontal edges. It probably looks oddly shaped because of the weird perspective of the renderings. Straight-on elevations will show the actual shape more clearly.

McCormick Place/DePaul Arena
Architect: Pelli Clarke Pelli








(minor edit) the high-rise massing to the right of the arena is a yet-to-be-revealed boutique hotel, in addition to the Marriott Marquis rendering above.
