This used to be a driving range on that spot.

I am really excited about the seamless development extending from Printers Row and the Museum Campus on down to the Lakeshore East and continuing across the river into Streeterville. A somewhat dusty business area should really blossom with the new architecture and increasing population density.

Around July, I went to the North Side of Chicago using Lake Shore Drive. So many new buildings, mostly all from Lakeshore East, were being built and some were even builted.

Before July, the Last time I was on Lake Shore Drive was probably in Febuary or March, so many new buildings being built in like 3-4 months...

Lakeshore Drive should look very different in the coming years!

I don't know anything about The Lancaster II. But I do know that the new building, which I think will be UC next year, is named as The Tides, a twin of ugly, generically-sterile Shoreham.
