There's been a mix-up on this post. The renderings of the 2-building complex that were posted are not the renderings for the original topic of this post. The 2-building project is proposed for the west Loop, between Madison and Monroe near the Kennedy Expy. The 50-story building that is the topic of this thread is proposed for a site on the north side of the main branch of the Chicago River.

Maybe this is just wishful thinking, but I imagine these drawings are so preliminary as to make the probability the final design will look like this is pretty slim. The probably of this thing getting off the ground is pretty low at this point, I would think. Like 10%.

The picture is of another building...not the one at 300 N LaSalle. The one depicted in the photo is a building being built next to the Kennedy on the west side of downtown.

Sorry if I caused confusion.

I guess that I figured people were intelligent enough to realize this wasn't the 50-story tower proposed for the site along the river, seeing as the image lacks the river and Presidential Tower as clearly visible to the left.

My mistake. I guess I should have posted the image somewhere else.

I'll try not to let it happen again.

This thread is getting intense! I figure I'll throw some nonsense into it:

Oog: "So there me was beating boulder into powder because me couldn't eat it, and magic ball land in lap. Naturally me think, "All right, free egg." because... me stupid and me caveman. So me spent about three days humping and bust open with thigh bone so me could eat it good. Then magic ball shoot Oog with beam, and next thing me know me go out and invent wheel out of dinosaur brain. Magic dino wheel rolls for three short distance until me eat it. The point is, me get smarter. Soon me walk upright, me feather back dirty matted hair into wings for style, and me stop to use bathroom as opposed to me just doing it as me walk. "

bonus points for getting the reference...

You sir can post anything and anywhere! You have earned that right! You are my Chicago fix!!!

I know that I actually read the writing on the newspaper clipping and figured out it wasn't the same building as the one on the river. But then again....who reads anymore?

Thanks BVictor for ALL of your contributions to both sites!!!!

Sorry TUP i spent a good deal of time putting together that update on the LaSalle street tower. I copied all those pictures and rendeerings of previous projects by the now selected architecture firm and i really wanted to share the excitement i had towards this project. But then someone comes along and makes "a boo boo" and causes confusion and now has hijacked the direction i was trying to take this thread. people have forgotten about what i even posted in the first place! Is that a reason to be mad? Oh ya TUP, just as you hope "i get banned soon", i hope someday you look at a map of chicago

Thanks dude!!

And you know what I just realized? I'm the one who started this damned thread, so I will post what ever the I feel like in it.

No, there's no news on this building. I will see if there is any information at city hall when I get a chance. I'm not sure if office towers need a planned development like residential towers do.

The most recent news is the choice of an architect. And seeing as this will be an office tower, i'm assuming it will break the 600' mark.
