It all depends on financing, but I would guess in the next 6 months.

Architects rarely get name on buildings, but developer thinks it's time

Blair kamin
Quote:
Architects? They design buildings but rarely get their names on them. Two exceptions line State Street: the Hotel Burnham, as in Daniel Burnham, and the Sullivan Center, for Louis Sullivan. Burnham's name also adorns a South Side lakefront park.

Now the list of buildings and parks named for architects is about to grow: Related Midwest, the Chicago division of New York-based Related Cos., will honor the prolific, albeit little-remembered, Chicago architect Edward H. Bennett and name its 843-foot apartment and condo tower at 451 E. Grand Ave. "One Bennett Park."

...

"Bennett's a great name," Curt Bailey, Related Midwest's president, said Friday. "Not only does it have a great stature in Chicago architecture. In our opinion, it's been recognized less than it should have been."

Designed by New York architect Robert A.M. Stern (like Bennett, a traditionalist) and due to open in late 2018, the tower won't be the only landing spot for Bennett's name. An adjacent, Related-owned park will be renamed Bennett Park. Both may contain tributes to Bennett Ś not a bad idea to raise the profile of an architect whose name recognition is no match for Frank Lloyd Wright's.

These new classical towers designed by Stern are recognizable as such, but still they all have different designs. And as always are a nice addition.

Hell yeah, this will fit Chicago like a Charm.

Its considerable height - although this won't reach supertall status, and its location on the city will surely make its presence be felt on this top-tier skyline.

Caisson Equipment Reports For Duty at One Bennett Park http://www.chicagoarchitecture.org/2...-bennett-park/


https://chicago.everyblock.com/locat...streeterville/

Quote:
As earth-moving machines continue to scrape, dig, and smooth things out at 451 East Grand Avenue in Streeterville, the next step in the process of building One Bennett Park has made an appearance on the construction site.

Our Streeterville Spy Thomas dropped us a line that the first piece of Case Foundation equipment had arrived on site. That means caisson work is in the cards for the Robert A.M. Stern-designed masterpiece in the north-side neighborhood. Sure enough, when we passed through, the unmistakable combination of blue and gold was busy burrowing into the ground off in the southeast corner of the lot, at Illinois Street and Peshtigo Court.

I'm envious! It blows my mind that there are two 750+ towers going up, plus this, and they say Chicago is going through a slow development phase. I guess it's all relative.

I think for Chicago, slow development phase = lack of supertalls u/c

But once Vista, Wolf Point, the Grant Park Towers and hopefully the old spire site get under way I would definitely say the boom has begun.

Well...it is. Chicago is one of the slowest-growing major cities in the US; the fact that it's even seeing this level of development is pretty incredible.
