The southeast corner of Clark and Grand (the parking lot next to the one you circled) is supposed to get a Hyatt Place hotel. I don't know if this lot is included in the development site. The last time it was mentioned in Crain's, though, the article said "2010 opening".

Perhaps Hyatt has moved up the schedule in an attempt to cash in on the good hotel market right now.

It's a nice building (and glassy too!) but is there enough interest where we need another thread?

I think it's good to have separate threads for each project. This is our own forum - we don't have to only select the most notable.

I guess my question was if you thought this building (or any other) would generate enough discussion to really justify a thread. I don't care either way although I'm concerned what happens to the threads after months of inactivity - are they purged (along with all the project info and pics) or are they archived?

Cool new River West project that is well underway. (Feel free to move to a more appropriate forum if there is one).

McCaffery aims to fit with Flair
DAVID ROEDER


Chicago developer Dan McCaffery has taken control of a site in River North and is moving forward with plans for an apartment high-rise. Working with architect Joseph Antunovich, McCaffery has turned in plans that would relate the building to a much smaller neighbor -- a three-story building at 214 W. Erie that dates from the 1880s.

...puts a low-rise section next to Flair House. The high-rise part is dubbed Flair Tower. It would reach to 26 stories and contain 201 units.

It looks like that State and Illinois project has been redesigned slightly. Still has two floors of retail space.

Where are you getting these?

I just looked yesterday at this lot in the Chicago zoning map. They have links to the Cook County Recorder of Deeds, and there haven't been any legal documents filed between the owner of the site (Illinois Bell) and a developer. Such documents usually reveal a development proposal.

I love the fact that some architect has designed a building for the site, but is there a real proposal behind it, or is the architect just fantasizing to fill his portfolio?

I drove past 757 No. Orleans today and they were pouring the 10th floor around 4:00PM.

I was right about the pouring of the 10th floor...Lucky guess on my part.

Condo project planned near Trump Tower

In a bet that the downtown condominium market will emerge from its doldrums, a Chicago development firm plans a narrow, mid-rise building just north of Donald Trump’s 92-story hotel/condo tower along the Chicago River.

Belgravia Group Ltd. is considering a 15- to 17-story building, with about 50 condo units, above an existing parking garage at 405 N. Wabash Ave., sources say. Belgravia has a contract to buy the air rights above the garage, which has one level at street level and three floors below ground.
