iStar Financial is involved in this?!!? It probably will remain a parking lot for the foreseeable future to await the next cycle, at least given their lack of progress in Asbury Park, NJ. It took them 7 years to start work on a single condo building.

Take a first look at Holy Name skyscraper project

Quote:
A proposed 76-story residential skyscraper in River North will face its first big test at a neighborhood meeting tonight, where its developer and architects will unveil their design for the project.

Before he can break ground, Jim Letchinger must sell River North residents on One Chicago Square, his planned development next to the Holy Name Cathedral. That process begins tonight and, he hopes, will end in the coming months with a zoning change from the Chicago City Council.

Expected to cost more than $700 million, the two-tower project would occupy the block just west of Holy Name, at State and Superior streets, and include 900 apartments and condominiums, a health club and spa, and a grocery store. It would be one of the biggest housing projects ever built in downtown Chicago, with one tower rising 76 stories and the other rising 45.

Very nice,thank you.
When you can have low rise as part of highrise you don't understand why there are lowrises today without highrises above them.
I have been to Chicago and it was fabolous and i thought that Trump tower, John Hancock and Willis tower are among the most impressive and beautiful in the world.

this tower is begging for a bulkhead up top or an antenna or two to complete the Chicago aesthetic.

This is one of the sleekest proposals Ive seen in a while. Not just in Chicago, but anywhere. The setbacks and the sleek curtain wall are outstanding. A 21st century art-deco neuveau.

Not to mention that this will be a usable podium and the parking will be underground.
