CHICAGO | One Bennett Park | 257m | 843ft | 67 fl | U/C



Quote:
A 67-story, 500-unit hybrid residential tower designed by notable architect Robert A.M. Stern is proposed for the southwest corner of Grand and Peshtigo by Related Midwest, which has been on a development hot streak for the past few years in Chicago.

At one time, the site had been slated for a 232-unit condo tower that was to be developed years ago by developer Dan McLean, but he lost the Parkview East site in a foreclosure suit. An affiliate of Related Midwest bought the land last August for $24.6 million, according to county property records.

The project, if approved by the city, would seek to capitalize on two trends, namely the strong demand for luxury apartments with bountiful amenities and a lack of new condominium units in downtown Chicago. North of the Chicago River, the only new development is the ultra-luxury Ritz Carlton Residences, along North Michigan Avenue.

Located at 451 E. Grand Ave., Related’s parcel is across the street from 500 Lake Shore Drive, a luxury apartment high-rise it completed last year and is 99 percent leased, according to Tricia Van Horn, a company spokeswoman.

As proposed, the still-unnamed building would tower over its neighbor. It would include 400 apartments and 100 condominiums and a 70,000-square-foot public park also owned by Related would be redesigned. A 900-space underground parking garage already on the site would be maintained.

Not big on the design. Looks like the average late 80s residential tower.

This easily clears 700ft.

Depending on their ceiling heights, which aren't final, it could be anywhere from 750-850ft. I might change the thread title to reflect that.

Considering that 500N LSD is 500ft, this appears to be about 800ft

It's good filler. If the materials are of good quality it shouldn't look too dated.

As well, this is another sign that luxury residential projects are indeed heating up in Chicago, which bodes well for the Spire! (fingers crossed)

Looks a bit traditional. Could be very good with a top class facade.

Related Unveils New Robert A.M. Stern Tower for Streeterville



Quote:
Add one more new starchitect project for Chicago's Near North Side. Developer Related Midwest has just unveiled their new plan to build a Robert A.M. Stern designed tower in Streeterville, just a stone's throw from their recently completed 500 Lake Shore Drive development. According to the Chicago Tribune, the new tower is slated to stand at 67 stories and would contain a mixture of residences, including 400 luxury apartments and 100 condo units. The plan will also include 900 underground parking spaces and a rather large 70,000 square foot park just west of the tower.

[...]

More details about the project will be unveiled on July 28, when Related is scheduled to discuss the development at a community meeting hosted by Alderman Brendan Reilly.


Had this been all condos it could easily exceed 900 feet but may indeed fall somewhere in that 800-850 feet range...

Streeterville's Robert A.M. Stern Tower to Come with New Park



Quote:
Related Midwest reps met with Streeterville residents last night to formally unveil their plan to build a new 67 story, Robert A.M. Stern designed tower in the neighborhood. First announced nearly two weeks ago, the tower would be the New York based starchitect's first for Chicago. The tall slender tower will contain a mix of residences, including 400 luxury apartments and 100 condo units. The plan also includes a 900 parking space underground garage, of which 400 of the spaces will be reserved for tenants. Although the tower is planned to be a mixed residence development, there will be no affordable housing or retail components.The tower will also aim for a LEED Silver certification. Stern is known for his love of limestone in New York, however only the base of the tower will be clad in limestone and the remainder of the building's exterior will take on precast concrete. However, one of the more striking components of the proposal is the makeover of the 1.7 acre park next door to 451 E. Grand.

I wish all proposed buildings had a watercolour rendering instead of the usual sketchy outlines or hyper realistic CGI thing. So nice.

It’s Going to be Huge: Details and Diagrams of 451 East Grand

Quote:
It’s big. Really big. Really quite big. The biggest building to hit North Lake Shore Drive since… well… ever. We’re talking about Realted Midwest’s 451 East Grand Avenue, the new residential tower designed by New York’s Robert A. Stern & Associates, and proposed to be built right behind Related’s first Chicago tower, the ever-so-shiny 500 Lake Shore Drive.

While it’s true that 451 is not fully on Lake Shore Drive, it’s half a block removed, it’s sure going to look and feel like lakefront property. That’s because this 67-story building is going to loom a whopping 843 feet over the gateway to Navy Pier. So, visually, it’s an 84-story building. On the lakefront. You’ll be able to watch this monster rise from Indiana.

And we mean “monster” in a good way. Because the design is lovely. It’s very New York. Also in a good way. Because Chicago has a variety of different and remarkable skyscraper designs, but not many that have that Park Avenue aesthetic.

One can clearly tell that this was designed by Robert A.M. Stern, just look at the freshly released visualization of his 520 Park Avenue project in NYC.

City Approves First Robert A.M. Stern Tower for Chicago



Quote:
Yesterday afternoon, the Chicago Plan Commission approved developer Related Midwest's proposal to construct a 67 story tower designed by New York's Robert A.M. Stern Architects at 451 East Grand Street in the Streeterville neighborhood. The approval signals the beginning of what will become the first highrise project designed by Stern for Chicago.

The precast concrete clad tower will contain 900 underground parking space and 350 residences — comprised of a mixture of condominium units and apartments. In addition to the tower itself, Related has committed to redeveloping the 70,000 square foot park next door with a design from noted landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh.

I believe it's 850 feet, which would be the 10th tallest.
