They are going to begin with the north tower first (shorter one). They haven't even started to market the units for the taller southern tower yet.

Not only is 50 East Chestnut ready to kick off, but 600 North Lake Shore Drive will start caissons probably tomorrow as well.

Damn, all of these sites are all coming online at the same time. Now add Waterview and few others and our photographers are going to need to quit their jobs

I'm intrigued by the for sale sign on building due west of 600 lsd.

Actually I was hoping to see that structure razed; it is becoming something of an eyesore in that rapidly redeveloping area. It's a great location.

Are you crazy? It';s not at all an eresore. It has beautiful ornamentation, and I for one would hate to see it go. We can't tear down every old building that needs a bit of work in the name of redevelopment.

Isn't that ornamentation confined to the facade only? The other three faces, if memory serves, don't present well at all. Of course, I can never rule out that I'm talking crazy.
