Is the SRO your speaking of the Lakefront Supportive Housing near Cabrini Green? If so I wouldn't really call it a tower...it is only about 5 stories. But ther is also the south Loop tower I have yet to see a rendering and 600 N F.

hrmm... the parking ramps don't look as visible anymore. I hope it's just a difference in the rendering technique because it will be a great loss if they've been hidden too much. I enjoy the notches at the top (on the west facade) though - presumably balconies.

Excellent -- 3 Jahn buildings.. When it rains it pours ( I say ruefully wishing Morton Salt was still around.)

Is there any retail on the ground floor? It would be nice if the retail faced Fairbanks. Lack of retail on that street.

^I couldn't agree with you more. I think pretty much every highrise downtown should have ground level retail. To not do so seems silly

^ You gotta love how they put the sexy blonde female figure right smack in the middle. Maybe that'll get a few extra sales center visits. It's no coincidence that they didn't place some fat guy wearing a Sox shirt there, no?

When I went to the opening of the sales center for 600 North Fairbanks, I took pictures of the model, but I forgot to post them.
