Thank you, wrabbit, for your time in taking pictures of the construction. Do you have any idea when the marketing for south tower begins?

Alas, I do not; however, the sales center told me that the N tower is 70% sold.

600 N. LSD Development

I live nearby this development. When the developer presented his plans to the community I remember that he made concession to set back the south tower from the drive to enhance day light for the ohio beach area. However, a recent visit to the seller's showroom I got the impression from the drawings and models that the developer never kept his promise. Any comments?

McHugh Building 600 North Lake Shore Drive


CHICAGO, Feb. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- James McHugh Construction Co. has begun
construction of 600 N. Lake Shore Drive, a two-building condominium complex on
Chicago's lakefront, company officials announced.
Located at the ends of Ohio and Ontario streets at Lake Shore Drive, the
development will include a 40-story, 509,000-square-foot north tower with 155
homes and a 46-story, 541,000-square-foot south tower with 246 homes. The
buildings will rise from a nine-story base, which also will serve as a bridge
between the two structures and include parking and resident services such as a
fitness center and business center. A 20,000-square-foot outdoor terrace atop
the base, complete with sculpture garden, will serve as an environmentally
sensitive green roof while providing outdoor amenities.
McHugh is serving as general contractor for the cast-in-place concrete
buildings, being developed by the Chicago-based team of Belgravia Group Ltd.
and Sandz Development Co., along with architects Pappageorge/Haymes Ltd.,
Chicago.
McHugh has begun construction of the base and the north building, with
first move-ins scheduled for spring 2007, when the south building construction
is slated to begin.
The exterior of 600 N. Lake Shore Drive will feature expanses of windows
to reflect Lake Michigan, with glass and aluminum rail balconies to complete
the reflective effect, along with bands of metal panels and architectural
poured-in-place and precast concrete. Inside, each floor will feature no more
than six condominiums, with homes ranging in size from 1,000 square feet with
one bedroom and 1-1/2 baths to more than 2,500 square feet, with three
bedrooms and 3-1/2 baths. All homes will include balconies, oak floors in
living and dining rooms, marble foyers, ceiling heights of more than nine
feet, stainless steel appliances and custom-style cabinetry.
Among the many challenges of the job will be working in a tight, 42,600-
square-foot site to erect more than one million square feet of space, said
Trevor Sheldon, McHugh project manager. Bumping up to Lake Shore Drive and
working in a residential area with noise and traffic restrictions also will
require the logistical and scheduling skills that McHugh has displayed in
other recent high-rise projects on the Gold Coast, including 50 East Chestnut
and the Residences at Lake Shore Park.

Founded in 1897, McHugh is one of Chicago's oldest and largest general
contracting, construction management and consulting firms. More information is
available at http://www.mchughconstruction.com .

I wonder if they are using precast concrete for the entire building because of the limited space and noice restraints.

I re-read the article and saw where I got misinformed.

Just right of center. Probably should have thrown in some blue-ish color, but meh.

New Model of Chicago City Scape @ 600 N LSD

The Sales Center has a new Cityscape model of the two buildings. It's quite impressive! It almost looks like a glass scupture of the Chicago skyline. I only have a picturephone which would not do it justice. Take a look at it. Perhaps you can photo it for the audience.

Lake Shore Drive Condo Starts

Construction has started on 600 N. Lake Shore Drive, a two-building condominium complex in Chicago.

Located at the ends of Ohio and Ontario streets, the development will include a 40-story, 509,000-sq.-ft. north tower with 155 units and 46-story, 541,000-sq.-ft. south tower with 246 units.

The buildings will rise from a nine-story base, which also will serve as a bridge between the two structures and include parking and resident services such as a fitness center and business center. A 20,000-sq.-ft. outdoor terrace atop the base, complete with sculpture garden, will serve as a green roof while providing residents with outdoor amenities.

Construction of the base and the north building has begun. First move-ins are scheduled for spring 2007, when construction on the south building is slated to begin.

The exterior will feature expanses of windows to reflect Lake Michigan, with glass and aluminum railed balconies to complete the reflective effect, along with bands of metal panels and architectural poured-in-place and precast concrete. In front of the building, a black granite, infinity-style reflecting pool will add style and visual drama to the landscaped area.

James McHugh Construction Co. is serving as general contractor for the buildings, being developed by the Chicago-based team of Belgravia Group Ltd. and Sandz Development Co., along with architects Pappageorge/Haymes Ltd.

Thanks for the pics.

I'll have to echo some other peoples' thoughts here--are they building both towers now? Sure looks like it
