Just to the south of OMPW - a 30 story tower is planned with a few townhomes at the base.

So in the block bordered by Roosevelt to 13th, Indiana to LSD there will be Museum Tower(36), OMP(67), OMPW(51) and another 30 story one.

Is it outlandish to suggest that the developers are 'lying by omission' in leaving out 1MP and Museum Tower, giving the impression of unobstructed lake views from 1 MP West?

Well don't you think that potential buyers will *at least* see the model of Museum Park/Central Station and wonder what that big tower next to their building is? That's assuming that the OMP model is still up though.

Much to do about nothing. Enterprise has been omitting towers in their Central Station Ads for years. Check out OMP1 - you never see Museum Tower.

Hasn't seemed to slow the fastest selling development in Chicago. You get a good prespective of the whole development from their 3D model of Central Station.

I stoped by the sales center for the opening of 1600 MP. Brisk sales not quiet as insane as OMP1. OMPW sold over 50% in 8 hours last weekend and 1600 MP was not quite at 50% sold the first full day.

Spy Guy - Why havent you started a seperate thread for OMPW?

50%!? Wow, so this is basically a go, along with 1600. If these two can sell that much in a day, I am really starting to believe that all of Fordham Spire's units are going to go within a few hours or at most two days.

If someone wants to start a OMPW thread they can, but there probably is no reason. Construction won't start for some time either, and I'm wondering how much news/ how many updates there will be on this tower. Maybe a better idea is to start a Central Station thread here where we can post all of the non- OMP stuff in or change the title of this thread to include all the other projects as well?

I say that this thread name changes to include all of Central Station since it seems that everyone else is talking about all the other projects as well.

I believe that is already a thread specifically for Central Station. You gotta dig through the pages though.

OMPWest update

Just a quick sales note on OMPWest. Went to the sales office this morning. Of the 262 units in this 53 story building at Roosevelt and Indiana there are only 100 units left.

OMP1 Case Cranes leaving


OMP1 Garage Construction underway



Well after a few months I finally figured out how to put my pics up. More to come on South Loop and Central Station.

Excellent, thanks ChicagoTom. I love OMP1 and I'm looking forward to seeing it go up.

OMP1 Central Station

I have high hopes that the final product will make a definitive mark on the Skyline!

That's the first time I've noticed (or maybe it's new) that the OMP towers will be connected with that metallic-looking overhang and columns (?) at the base. Will they share a lobby???

Another shining example of the great high rise residentals being built or planned for Chicago. If we keep building beauties like these, I wonder if someday Chicago will become a preeminent city for high rise residental.
