Goodbye Pizza-Adorned Gino's East, Hello 444-Unit Tower



Quote:
Gino's East pizzeria has left the building, and the abandoned photorealistic foodstuffs will soon be taken down and demolished along with the rest of the building, to make way for Magellan Development and Mac Management's second, effectively simultaneous River North apartment project. The 41-story apartment tower, designed by Loewenberg Architects, has been approved by the Chicago Plan Commission at the same meeting as Mac and Magellan's other tower set to replace the Howard Johnson Inn.

The Plan Commission's okay gives the tower the go-ahead to begin construction on time in early 2015.

Gino's East wasn't shy about proclaiming its pizza purposefulness:

Aw man, that was a cool little building full of 1950s spirit. What a shame. No respect for the past.

I'd rather have that over this glass and brick slab.

Exciting to see towers going up this far west of the lake in River North. This tower is nothing special, but developments like these are pushing the Chicago skyline to new frontiers.
