I have a question concenring the lot at the corner of Roosevelt and Mich. I was riding my bike north up Mich, sonething I have not done in awhile and was wondering if there any plans to put anything in that lot right at the corner. Currently there seems to be a trailer there, it is the lot I beleive that is in front of sky55 (I think that is the building just south of roosevelt at michigan.

Is this lot to remain empty, or is there palns to put a tower there as well??

There are two towers planned for the north 1/2 of the block bound by Roosevelt, Indiana, 13th Street and Michigan Avenue. Both will be over 50 floors and rumor has it that the one on at Roosevelt and Indiana will release for sale in September this year. Some have speculated that the Michigan and Roosevelt building may have a hotel component to it and that they may be seeking a much taller tower. Personally I would like to see something over 80 floors.

Currently there is Sky 55 - 39 floors 1251 S Indiana - floors stories red brick and an 11 story red brick building on Michigan that is age restricted (senior housing).

Yeah that would be cool, as I was standing there waiting for the light to change I thought this lot is too good a spot not to develop, my only fear was that sky55 might have sighline rights or something....but since I think this is an apt building as oppossed to a condo that is prob less likely.

The specualtion concerning a taller tower is there any substance to it or just idle speculation???

thanks for the reply

I hope Central Station gets an office building. It would be too bad if that whole area becomes entirely residential.

I recall that there was a post @ SSP months ago that the third building will be 100ft taller than One Museum Park.

I could be wrong.

God I hope the real estate issues in the country right now don't slaughter all these proposed buildings.

Bovis has been ordering so many sets of drawings for OMPW I would think it has to start soon.
