Ah, okay--I think you're right. I was getting the site confused because of the church in the renderings; thinking it was a location at Superior and State. It'd be great to get that parking lot developed, though..

So, you should think about Park Tower

I heard some interesting information about the height of this tower. Now this is unofficial as the tower is still in the design stages, but it's possible that it will be in the 735'-750' range. As I said this is still unofficial. We must wait until we can see the actual blueprints, but I figured I should share.

It may grow from initial 650' to 720'-750'???? Now, that is a good new.

When the sales begin?

Do any of you guys have a sense of what the possibility is of this tower becoming a reality? I mean, it has a good location, but you never know. I really like the design, and its nice to mix up the area with something different.

I think that it has a really good chance of becoming a reality. They will probably begin to market it some time later this year.

I just called the sales center, and I was told that they will begin to market it sometime this year. Hopefully sometime this summer.

I got this rendering yesterday from LR Development. It's a perspective view from Huron and Rush Street towards the residential lobby.

71 East Huron

The renderings are fine art, but impossible to achieve. If you actually look at the site for 71 East Huron from the intersection of Huron and Rush you can see that the building will have no view at all. Most of the units will face directly into Fordham's Pinnacle, The Omni Hotel or even 55 East Erie. The architecture is fine, but the architects have completely missed the utility of the site. The building will be stuck in the middle of a grouping of high rise condominiums and seen by no one.

LR has missed the boat. It sailed when Fordham, and the others overbuilt the area. Who will buy these things with a 5000 unit excess inventory in River North/Streeterville?

I feel sorry for the St. James people. If this thing heads south in the marketing phase, they will be stuck with a lot of promises and no office building at all.

I think its distinctive shape will help it survive. Canyon Ranch is a plus too.

Well, immediately to the north and south are lowrise buildings that at this time will help to protect the view in those directions. You also have the church as a barried between this tower and the Pinnacle. It will do fine.
