Museum Tower




Museum Park from State Street


1400 Museum Park Site


16th Street - Lakeview tower and Prairie Tower


Its a terrible angle on Lakeview. I'll get some more over the weekend.

Also I walked down to 18th and Prairie. There is a city permit on that 60s building for 2 highrise towers and townhomes total of 560 units.

Great shots, Chicagotom. Did you get a chance to look at 1720 S Mich site? Rascacielos stated earlier that Case started work today.

I did but I ran out of batteries. There are 2 Case cranes on the site. I'll get back down there and take some of the site tommorow.

I'm glad they put retail at the base of 1600 Museum Park, but, I question the success that businesses there will be able to have - the buildings still seems a bit isolated to me.

^ No.

North America's tallest.

Tallest in the Western Hemisphere.

Tallest in Christendom.

I'm finding this a little scary: when I look at pictures of the Near South Side, I'm thinking I'm looking at pictures of the Near North Side. Who would have thunk it!! Damn, this city is changing!

I like them! They look much better plus more interesting than Ritz Carlton rendering.

Should we put this in the South Loop thread instead? Looks sweet either way.

Well, Prairie Point is further south and it's apart of the Central Station develoment. 1600 Museum Park is 1/2 a block to the south, so it's really not outside the zone.
