Helmut Jahn tower might not be South Loop's tallest

Quote:
Architect Helmut Jahn is scaling back an 86-story residential tower planned on South Michigan Avenue.

A zoning attorney representing the project's developer confirmed today that the architect is redesigning the proposed skyscraper at 1000 S. Michigan Ave., which was originally slated to be 1,001 feet tall.

"Helmut and Phil Castillo (a partner in his Chicago-based firm) are working on it right now," said attorney Jack George, shareholder at Chicago-based Schuyler Roche & Crisham. "I haven't seen the latest rendering with an exterior height, but it's going to be shorter than what we filed for" last year.

Castillo did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The project's New York-based developers, JK Equities and Time Equities, filed plans in September for a tower on the site with 506 residential units, a mix of condos and apartments. George said he did not know how many units the new tower would include.

The cause for the reduction is "just the design of it,” George said. “They have a design that they think is more appealing."

According to an anonymous post on Skyscraper Page, an online message board, the proposed height is now 832 feet. George said that only Jahn and Castillo could confirm that figure. The developers could not be reached for comment late yesterday.

At 832 feet, the tower would be about the same height as the 67-story Park Tower on Michigan Avenue. It would still come in taller than the South Loop's present tallest, the 62-story One Museum Park, but shorter than a pair of towers proposed for a nearby site that would reach 76 stories high.


[...]
I'll await confirmation but that 832 ft height may be exactly what we get here.

What a shame. At least it will still be a bit taller than Legacy.

Nothing has been finalized. This is well over a year away from even starting. A lot of things can change before then.

True but the design is better now, at least in my opinion. It'll still stand out at 832' in this location

No, that was a block and a half to the north. 830 S. Michigan vs 1000 S. Michigan. The address kind of gives it away.

Approved! http://chicago.curbed.com/2016/4/22/...south-michigan



Quote:
The Helmut Jahn designed 73-story tower proposed for 1000 South Michigan is one step closer to construction after approval from the Chicago Plan Commission yesterday. The proposal by New York-based JK Equities and Time Equities is essentially the same concept that was presented to neighbors in a community meeting at the end of February, featuring 506 units split between rental apartments in the lower floors and for-sale condominiums in the upper floors of the tower. The building design begins with a rectilinear footprint at ground level, but flairs outward as it rises, eventually taking on a more trapezoidal form towards the top, which features a private outdoor amenity deck for the future condo dwellers.

The planned development boundary covers not only the present surface parking lot at 1000 South Michigan Avenue, but also the neighboring eight-story building at 1006 South Michigan. It is over this neighboring building that the tower extends outward, similar to an earlier Jahn-designed project at 600 North Fairbanks in Streeterville. In doing so, the development team is making more space available to sell on the higher-priced upper floors while crafting a unique shape for the building. The tower will anchor the southern end of the Historic Michigan Avenue Boulevard District, a landmark district protecting the historic streetwall of facades extending northward from this block towards Randolph Street. While the site is empty and does not presently contribute to the streetwall, the location required negotiations with the Commission on Chicago Landmarks and ultimately resulted in the shortening of the tower's height from an initial 1030 feet to a current proposal topping out at 832 feet.

A sales center is expected to open by this summer in the neighboring building at 1006 South Michigan while construction is planned to begin in 2017.
I suspect sales will determine how quickly this tower begins...
