This would be better if the three towers were set apart and not touching.

I literally can't find another building like this in the world, this is why its cool.

Public sales will begin October 1st.

They still want to break ground sometime Summer 2016 with delivery in 2020.

They should be going before plan commission October or November, but probably the former.

Jeanne Gang also told me that Solstice on the Park isn't dead. We could see movement on that one something in 2016 as well. It'll probably be apartments.

Here's a video of the video that played this evening...

Hated the original concept, but love this refinement of it.

Dubai and China get "first drafts". This version is more worthy of Chicago.

The roads in downtown Chicago were built at higher elevations because they had a lot of river traffic from shipping and road traffic. To accomodate both they needed drawbridges and the bascule bridges in Chicago required a certain amount of clearance to operate. The higher elevation also allowed for proper sewage and drainage in the city which had problems because it was originally built on swamp land. I might also add that lower wacker and lower michigan are awesome for avoiding tourist traffic many folks who visit aren't even aware the lower levels exist.
WOW! I absolutely didn't know about those streets in Chicago being double or tripled decked. Looks pretty cool, and it seems that when you are at the surface level, it is easy not being aware that there is another, or maybe two, more levels of road bellow.


Here is a diagram of those multilevel streets on Downtown Chicago.
