Aqua looks a lot like a future project we're getting here in Toronto called One Bloor. Btw, great to see further density in Chicago! Beautiful city!

Construction progress as of today:

So now there is this interesting Mexican cafe, a large grocery store, a steakhouse, a breakfast restaurant, and probably a bank. Not a bad mix so far. Hopefully construction starts soon on the new 50 story rental tower.

Info on the next building, which will be a rental:

Although project designer Brininstool, Kerwin and Lynch, Chicago, operates in partnership with Magellan, the developer remains resolute in its recent decision to seek outside design expertise rather than rely solely on affiliate Loewenberg Associates, a Chicago-based architect headed by Magellan’s Jim Loewenberg.

...“We’ve upped the ante,” says Loewenberg. “How do you top it? That’s the question always lurking in the back of our minds.”

Here's the new 50 story rental building that will be next, just north of Aqua and east of the Swissotel.


I can't wait for the great journalism of skyscraper"news" proclaiming this proof of how much Chicago sucks because it doesn't look like a dented can.

Edit: more renderings and a description from the architects





This glass tower designed by Brininstool, Kerwin and Lynch in the tradition of Chicago modernism rises 49-stories to overlook Lakeshore East Park, the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. In addition to 499 residential units, the mixed-use tower contains 18,000 square feet of retail space and 18,000 square feet of amenities. With all parking located below Wacker Drive, the tower meets the street gracefully, enhancing the pedestrian experience at street level.

The fašade is a composition of light and translucency. On the east and west fašades, clear, translucent and fritted glass combine with aluminum to form a curtain wall. Continuous, inset balconies on the north and south elevations provide views of the city skyline and Millennium Park.

People can crap on Chicago as much as they want, but every other large city in the US builds just as many boxes, and even then, most of them can't offer "normal" people relatively affordable apartments and condos with great views.

Just my 2 cents.

18,000 square foot retail space on East Upper Wacker Drive.
Five levels of parking below Wacker Drive level.
Pool and common outdoor area on the podium. From the drawings, the pool looks to be just a cheap splash pool like at The Shoreham, not a real pool.

Two dog runs
Green roof.
Slightly shorter than The Tides.
45 stories above Wacker Drive, 50 stories from ground level, which includes the public parking garage.

So the next tower (images posted above) will start construction very soon. I plan to update the entire first page later on today.

Magellan lands construction loan for Lakeshore East apartments
By: Alby Gallun May 26, 2011


The developer of the Lakeshore East project landed a construction loan for a 499-unit apartment building on the Chicago River, with plans to break ground early next month.

A joint venture led by Magellan Development Group LLC is borrowing $99.5 million from Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. to finance the 45-story building just east of the Swissotel, says Magellan President David Carlins. Chicago-based Magellan and its equity partner, JP Morgan Asset Management, also are investing about $50 million in equity in the high-rise designed by Brininstool Kerwin & Lynch.

Edit: I finally got around to updating the front page (thanks hydro for helping!).

Its just a bit taller then Swissotel I think?

425feet = +/- 130m. but that is measured from street level on the river side.
If you measure from insdie the 'park' it will gain something around 20/30m so around 500feet max i guess...?
