No news or renderings yet avaliable for 830 North Michigan. On my day off I will stop by the sales center and see what the hell is up with this one.

Also I was able to attend the Grant Park Advisory Council meeting tonight, and I am happy to say that 830 South Michigan isn't dead. In fact it seems as if they've added about 10 floors making it about 80 stories I haven't seen any renderings, but I was told that there would be an unveiling at an uncoming GPAC meeting like OMP was unveiled last year. This meeting will probably be before the end of the year.

No, not it does not. And that's a good thing. To me, the south side is the "last frontier" of the skyline. Sure the north will continue to get more dense, but with more 20-30 story buildings. And the west could get taller buildings, but they wouldn't be noticed from most views anyway. So it's upto buildings like 1 Museum Park and this to help extend our skyline southwards.

I don't see how an 80 story building is going to fit into the mid-scale South Michigan cliff.

They had the same question over the Sears Tower and John Hancock.

Go for it. Let Chicago keep growing!

It'll stand alone by itself for a while, but eventually ther area around it will become denser and more built up. Hopefully surface parking lots in that area will become non-existant. Besides with OMP and The Legacy, it won't be the onl tall building in the area.

I called a new contact down at city hall yesterday, and he confirmed to me that the developers of 830 South Michigan were indeed shooting for a taller building. I was told that the structure was being redesigned somewhere in the 80-story range. I couldn't get any "exact" height info at this time, but he did say that I could call him back.

When and if I find out more information, I will let you guys know.

...South Michigan. It will be a little bit further south than the Blackstone Hotel so yeah, it will face the park.

Well I know what South Michigan Avenue is! I was just trying to distinguish North from South in my mind--but thanks for answering. I'll have to look up Blackstone Hotel on Google Earth.

I was just down in the South Loop earlier today, visiting my tenants at 1250 S. Michigan. There's so much construction taking place in the South Loop it's scary! It looks like the Columbian is just about to break ground any day, and there is alot of talk about the continued success of 1400 S Michigan (Michigan Ave. Towers II). I even heard that there will be a street median built south of Roosevelt road on Michigan, to give it that wide boulavard look.
