Does anybody know what the plan for the old CBS building at 630 N McClurg is?

-EDIT- posted without looking. Just saw the proposal on page eight. It's an absolute shame that this building will be torn down.

Two things

1. They've started demolishing the old CBS studios - there was a good chunk already gone when I saw it.



2. 850 Lake Shore Drive has a website up

I believe that is the old VA hospital. I can't share your sentiment, though. That fellow was a monstrosity with no street life.

^Do you think a surface parking lot will be any better? And when they develop that lot, there's a good chance it will become a monstrous parking garage.

Ronald is moving to Streeterville
Charity plans an 86-unit tower

By IAN FULLERTON


Ronald McDonald House Charities, an non-profit focused on improving children's healthcare, has purchased the property at 211 E. Grand and intends to develop an 86-unit residential facility on the site.

The 14-story building, slated for completion in 2012, will be used as a temporary residence for out-of-town families of children in the city's downtown hospitals.

...The charity has raised $10 million of the estimated $30 million needed to develop the project, which, if built, will be the largest Ronald McDonald charity facility to date.

...Designs for the building include 5,000 square feet of retail space on the first floor, with an entrance and lobby area facing Grand and another drop-off entrance in the alley behind the building. The third floor will feature an outdoor dining area, and the building will be topped with a contemplative garden and social area on the roof.

...Demolition of the existing structure is scheduled to begin in late 2009, with an 18-month construction period starting in early 2010.

^It's OK. Would rather have what's currently on the site, as this is guaranteed to be boring and institutional-looking. I'm glad their demolition schedule is so ambitious considering they only have 1/3 of the financing they need.

Thanks for the find, spyguy.

NW catches building bug
By: Mike Colias May 18, 2009


...Sources tell Crain's that two major projects are in the works at the sprawling medical campus in Streeterville: a large biomedical research facility for Northwestern University's medical school and a medical office tower for doctors who practice at the hospital.

...As Northwestern's share of the local medical care market has expanded, so has its need for space. A spokeswoman confirms the hospital is seeking a developer for a medical office building that would replace two administrative offices, one at 240 E. Ontario St. and another at 259 E. Erie St. The developer likely would own the facility, estimated at 500,000 to 700,000 square feet, and lease it to the hospital.

Oh, brother. So those nice, solid brick buildings are likely facing the wrecking ball? And NW is building a Merchandise Mart-size parking garage on the old VA site, too. Wonderful. It's official: Streeterville is set to become the most sterile and uninviting neighborhood of the Near North Side. Can't they just open a satellite campus on State and occupy one of the hundreds of parking lots?

^ That's not true. Most likely, the west portion of the old VA site will be where they build the research building. But yes, part of the site will probably have a parking garage

Finally some news about Children's Memorial Parking. This is from SOAR:

quote:

When plans were approved to begin the construction of the new Children's Memorial Hospital on Chicago Avenue, the medical campus institutions committed to constructing a parking facility to support the institutional patient and staff growth projections through 2012.

The new parking facility will be built and owned by Northwestern Memorial Hospital and will be located at 441-459 E. Ontario / 440-458 E. Ohio St.

The proposed above grade facility will provide a new state of the art day care facility for 375 children along with approximately 1,300 parking spaces. At present the structure is envisioned to have day care services on the first two floors of the building topped off with 12 stories of parking.

On or about June 30, 2009, an application to change the zoning of the site will be filed along with an application to approve the concept under the Lake Michigan and Chicago Lakefront Protection Ordinance. Buildings and residents within 250 feet of the proposed structure will be receiving a notice to this effect.

On July 29 the project will be introduced to the City Council. This is NOT an approval for the project, but an announcement of it. Northwestern Memorial Hospital will seek community input to the proposal before it goes to the City's Plan Commission for approval.

It is anticipated that construction of the facility will begin in October 2010 and open in January 2012.

If you have any questions regarding the filing, please contact Carol Stubblefield at the firm of Neal and Leroy (312) 641-7144. If you have any questions regarding the proposal, please contact SOAR by email

Northwestern Memorial seeks OK for $73M project
By: Mike Colias Aug. 17, 2009


...Northwestern plans to add 24 medical/surgical beds and 12 observation beds on Galter’s 9th floor and a 24-bed intensive care unit on the 10th floor. The 13th floor would house a 29-bed psychiatric unit, which would be relocated from its existing psychiatric facility at the Stone Pavilion, on the site of the old Prentice women’s hospital.

...Northwestern describes the project as a “bridge” to give it breathing room until it’s able to build another pavilion on the former Lakeside Veterans Affairs hospital site at 333 E. Huron St., which is adjacent to the Feinberg Pavilion. Development of that site is several years out, Northwestern’s application says. The hospital is in negotiations with Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, which owns 30% of the property.

The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and Golub & Company Announce Joint Streeterville Land Transaction
RIC acquires Golub's 630 N. McClurg site to develop state-of-the-art facility; RIC parking lot at Ohio-McClurg streets is acquired by Golub for future development


The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) and Golub & Company announced today a collaboration that has resulted in joint land transactions in Streeterville. RIC has acquired Golub's parcel at 630 N. McClurg Court and Golub has acquired RIC's parcel at the corner of Ohio St. and McClurg Ct. Terms of the transaction are not disclosed.

As the #1 rehabilitation hospital in the country for 19 consecutive years and as the nation's largest center for research in the field of rehabilitation medicine with a record six federal research designations, RIC has purchased the large parcel of land, formerly the "CBS building". RIC will now begin conceptual planning for the development of the Erie-McClurg land. Through a future new facility in which clinical care and research are integrated and surrounding the patient, it is RIC's intention to continue to lead the world in discovering and innovating treatments in physical medicine and rehabilitation for generations to come.

“The likelihood of surviving a catastrophic event, such as a stroke or brain trauma or spinal cord injury, increases every year due to the many advancements in acute-care medicine,” said Joanne C. Smith, MD, president and CEO of RIC. “RIC leads the world in the field of medicine that takes over once the patient survives such an event - the rehabilitation phase. RIC is the world leader in the rehabilitation field and we hold an obligation to drive better care and recovery in this important field of medicine. Today's acquisition of a great parcel of land enables RIC to plan for and implement rehabilitation care that is generations ahead of our time, through which the best science will drive new methods of care, recovery and even cures.”

"We are delighted to be able to assist RIC in creating a world-class facility at an ideal location within the neighborhood," said Michael Newman, Golub & Company president and CEO. "Golub continues to be deeply vested in the success of the Streeterville community while maintaining the neighborhood's harmonious blend of commercial, retail, medical and residential stakeholders."

Over the past 40 years, Golub has been a defining developer of Streeterville, having developed, owned, managed or leased more than 6.5 million square feet of commercial and residential property in the area.

Golub, with its partner Alcion Ventures, will develop a project on its newly acquired land at a future time, and most recently completed two luxury residential developments, The Streeter and Streeter Place, in close proximity to its new site. Lee Golub, executive vice president, oversees the firm's development activity. "Our new development will most likely be a residential building similar to Streeter and Streeter Place," said Golub.

RIC and Golub look forward to open and productive collaboration with the community through the planning process.

Cityfront Plaza Tower III

I saw this rendering of Phase III/middle tower in a brochure advertising the retail space (which is pretty huge). Hopefully the design is still accurate, although it just looks like a stretched version of the canceled St. Clair (west) tower. It looks like this will be an apartment building as well.
