I was watching the ABC news and they said something like that on Friday or Saturday (can't remember). Either way it's really nice.

I think tomorrow morning is the inaugural broadcast. They plan to spend much of the newscast giving the audience a tour of the studio, etc. I might get up early and watch it.

That's what I was thinking, too. The ABC Studio... MoMo on the way... Now we just need Block 37 to come to fruition.

Someone tell channel 5 that this is how a local street level studio is supposed to look like... Even the news ticker looks great.

Nothing says "Chicago" like State Street
April 10, 2006 - There may be no street in Chicago with such personality and fame as State Street. Chicago's State Street has had its ups and downs over the years, but today it is back with a vengeance.

State Street has been that Great Street for just about as long as the city has been around -- from the days of the horse and carriage to trolley cars.

"It's been here since the beginning of Chicago. The early part of Chicago development is centered around State Street," said Alderman Burt Natarus.

For a while, the street took a tumble.

"Unfortunately the area underwent some negative disinvestment during the 1970's and 1980's when the street was closed to vehicular traffic. That was a big mistake in retrospect," said Ty Tabing, Chicago Loop Alliance.

Fixing that mistake sparked what some experts call one of the greatest turnarounds in urban history -- a revitalization even better than the dreamers dreamed. It is now a thriving commercial area full of activity and life.

"The city's vision was to create a theater district -- which we view this as being a key addition to and to try to get more people to move into that area so there will be that 24/7 vibrancy throughout the day," said Tabing.

As for the future of State Street, one of its prime promoters says it's great.

"I think State Street will be very competitive with north Michigan Avenue. And there's no reason why you can't have both. Chicago, that's my hometown," said Natarus.

The development of State Street has been very important Mayor Daley.

"State Street has been part of Chicago's history. Reflect the past and see the present but most important the future. That's why the dedication of the ABC Channel 7's wonderful studios and becoming part and parcel where you can really feel the energy and people here on State Street. To me, it has changed. There's theaters, there's more students living downtown, families. It's not the street itself, it basically really comprises the subway, the El. It comprises the Loop area. That's what's so significant about State Street," said Mayor Daley.

I walked past the studio at about 8:30 this morning, and there were about 30 or so people crowded around.

i thought the gold fish bowl stuff was getting old, or dated,
doesnt this seem a bit after the curve?

i have noticed that cnn and fox arent so into this, and just in general this is just weird,
its okay, but imagine a homeless guy causing a ruckuss banging on the window during a broadcast? seems like it will draw attention seekers and unstable people

its okay and all, and its kind of timesquarish

State St. Asset.

I am sure Blair Kamin will pan it. The glass bowl studio does "not" blend in with architecture of the building.... However, I still think that it's an asset to State Street.

I walked past thirty minutes ago and there were at least 40 people outside. Unbelievable.

Might just be the nice weather but there was a crowd outside again today, even when ABC wasn't broadcasting.

I just hope that security is solid enough that the local gangs don't acid sketch the windows.

The company I work for did the glazing. The glass is coated on the exterior with a relatively, thick, clear PVC to prevent graffiti.
