This has been bugging me for a while now as to when they'll release new information.

Is SCB still designing this tower?

A simple Yes or No is acceptable, if possible. If you can say more if the answer is no, please do

Spyguy SCB is still he architect for this building. As far a s when they will release the renderings I have no idea. We just did some newer drawings for them the other day and now the height is showing as around 900 again.

I'm now confused to.

900 ft ain't that bad. But SCB is still working on design. Who knows? They could change their mind by adding 100ft at the request of Samuel Assefa.

Two projects that I can't see making it past the drawing board Mandarin, and Fourth Presbyterian

So if Mandarin doesn't build its own highrise, do you thing they will try to find another location in the city? My understanding is that they have been itching to get in for years. They may not raise the capital for their own highrise, but if not, I bet they'll still find a way into the city.

I think 4th Presbyterian is a goner. This one I still have hope for, however. The mob thing was a scare, but I don't think that's enough to bring about this project's end.

Mandarin Oriental wanted to enter this market for a long time, and they're going to get in one way or another. An amazing, eye-catching design, Mandarin Oriental's name (which I think is "worth" more than Shangri-la's name), and the fact that they can sell this as a Michigan Avenue tower will hopefully make this tower a reality.

This one has a better chance than the 4th Presbyterian. Still not going to be easy.

It has been 8 months since the MO's announcement. 8 frakkin' months without a single rendering! 8 frakkin' months of waiting! 8 frakkin' months of nothing's going on except the mob tie! and 8 frakkin months of killing us without mercy!

We might go ahead and accept the early verdict: death of MO-Chicago.

This project is not dead. There was some printing just last week. Not for the building it self but for the sales center.

I did peek at the print. Actually I see just about everyone that comes through. 108 N State, Parkview, Elysian, OMP, ect... I just don't have the time to really look into to much detail of them and I can only say so much.

As far as the Mandarin sales center prints. I didn't see to much. I just remember seeing them come in for it and setting it up quick. There really wasn't much to see on them worth noting.

I will keep everyone up to date on this one as much as I can.

When did they announce a new rendering for this building? So it won't be the one that resembles 340 On The Park? I'm out of the loop on this one (excuse the pun.)

I don't think there was any official announcement. But
richardsonhomebuyers was kind enough to let us know that the previous rendering is not whats planned.

Well we just got some new drawings in for this one. Looks like it is 1,017' to the very top and 1,079 from the ccd. So far the building is not bad looking. I have yet to see a color rendering of it.

Did I ever tell you how awesome you are?

That's quite tall, and it's good that things are still going on. Is there any vague description you can give us, like BVictor's "thin is in" comment?

1,017? Wow, that makes it 130 feet taller than is depeicted below.



Yeah, that pic was intended to show how it might be better if MO wasn't built as it blocked several sightlines to FS, but since I only have a basic massing model (due to lack of renderings), I never made any othe shots centered on MO.
