I can't believe that we let this thread slip to the third page. Anyway I visiyed the sales center yesterday and was told that One Museum Park is roughly 85% sold. The grand opening for One Museum Park West will be February 4,2006. They will be going straight to contracts for this tower. The top residentila floor is 53 in this building. The have a very nice model for tower 2 now on display. I of course took some shots of it.

The base of the northern facade that fronts Roosevelt Road.

View of the southern elevation looking north.


The base of the southern facade showing garage entrance and drop off points.


The base of the western elevation which fronts Indiana Avenue.


View of the eastern elevation looking west.

Some shots of the crown.






I also heard a rumor that because of the success of OMP East, there is a chance that tower 4(at the corner of Michigan & Roosevelt) could possible be the taller. As I said, this is just a rumor.

I like this tower so much better than OMP. I'm glad that we're getting two monsters, but, I definately think the smaller of them is superior.

I expect that number since the model of 1MPW is shorter than the 1MP. 620' is nice.

I just came from Pappageorge/Haymes with Shawn. We were able to see the blueprints for One Museum Park, and we found a very nice suprise. That 720' height is taken from Roosevelt Road and not the main entrance, and remember Roosevelt is elevated in that location. The actual height of this building is 734' 2". Also, the building is 65 stories not 62. There are 3 mechanical penthouse floors above 62, which is the top residential floor.

I wasn't albe to see the plans for One Museum Park West at this time, as they are still preliminary and are subject to change. That also means that the height will have to be altered for that one as well, but for now the 620' figure will stand.

As much I like the high-definition rendering in context, I can't understand why One Museum Park is left out, especially since that building is being built *first*. Also, I am under the imrpession that all the other areas in that photo surrounding 1MP West depicted as parrks will be built upon. Am I correct in assuming this?

^As I said on SSP: 1MP and other building arenn't being advertised so why would they include them. The point of these renderings is emphasize a particular building. If they included 1MP it overpower 1MP West.

I believe Museum Tower is being topped out as we speak in the green-space to the bottom-right of the picture while, yes, OMP is going in the green space just to the east (upper left) of OMPW. I'm not sure what's going in to the south of it (if anything) - can anyone shed some light?

Hmm. Granted I'm over 2,000 miles away and can only piece this together from construction photos, but I believe Museum Tower is in the green space directly south of OMPW in the new rendering.
