80-story tower eyed for Chicago River site

Developers plan an 80-story tower for the $4-billion Lake-shore East development on Lake Shore Drive south of the Chicago River. The high-rise, to be on Columbus Drive across from the Fairmont Hotel, is being designed by Chicago architect Jeanne Gang. Plans include about 500 apartments, nearly 300 condos and possibly a hotel with 195 units, says Joel Carlins, CEO of Magellan Development, which is developing Lakeshore East with Near North Properties. The Chicago-based firms are in talks with hotel operators and aim to market the condo units next year, Mr. Carlins says. [Alby Gallun]

---------

Our "insider" BVictor expects this building to be between 850-900 feet, no exact figure yet
BVictor possted @ SSP that the rendering for Gang tower will be displayed soon.

The cladding of 340 On the Park looks great. With everything that's going on in Chicago, this one seems to get lost in the shuffle. And it's one of the better towers being built right now. Thanks for posting those pics, spyguy.

I've seen some of them before, but didnt know about the complex. Chicago is definitely getting their share of new scrapers these days. Hope there will be more of that.

There was a snippet of info on Sunday's Tribune:

Gang at Lakeshore East -- One of Chicago's rising stars, Jeanne Gang, expects to show city officials her design for a mixed-use tower at Lakeshore East (a former golf course between Lake Shore Drive and Illinois Center) in January and to make it public soon afterward. Among the innovations of the tower, for which Loewenberg + Associates is architect of record: It will present different faces to different points of the compass, based on the views from the apartments and the shadows cast by nearby buildings. It's also a good bet the tower will be tall, considering the heights sketched out in the master plan for Lakeshore East.
