All for Urbs in Horto, but I'd rather see a little slice of green between street and sidewalk than sidewalk and building

Looks like the design for the Old Saint Patrick's Tower is going to change, and they might build it where the park is now.

Madison / Racine Proposed Development

Was at a community meeting last night hosted by Alderman Burnett re: a proposed development for the NW corner of Madison / Racine.

It would be a 9 story, 250+ apartment building with retail on the first floor. Architect is Fitzgerald.

I can't post pics on this forum yet, but did find a rendering of the next-to-last iteration online - it is slide 36 of the slideshow below . . .


Looks like your typical big West Loop corner building. Was hoping for something a bit more interesting with different elevations / smaller individual buildings cluster instead of just another big box. Also, seems like a lot of apartment developments in the area at about the same time.

I thought it was okay at first, but people posted some interesting POV's in that Curbed article. The one that suggested several buildings -rather than a single bulky one- was a POV I'd agree with.

I didn't know West Loop community folks were so anti-density. Kind of odd to be so anti-density in an area that's perfect for high density...even a requirement I would say for West Loop. It's a total waste of space to not densify West Loop. Opposing density here would make as much sense as people in Miami organizing an anti-tropical climate rally.

Fulton Market Cold Storage may be next business hub
BY DAVID ROEDER AND FRAN SPIELMAN Staff Reporters June 6, 2012

A Near West Side fixture, the 10-story Fulton Market Cold Storage warehouse, would be converted to office and retail use under a plan submitted to city officials.

Developer Sterling Bay Cos. wants to transform the brick behemoth at 1000 W. Fulton Market into a business hub for a changing neighborhood. The surrounding area has long had meat and produce wholesalers, and while those operations remain, they’ve been joined by residents, loft offices and fashionable restaurants.

The changes can create conflicts. The meat and produce dealers operate within a zone the city has reserved for manufacturers, but the warehouse falls outside of it.

The proposal also calls for a large complement of off-street parking. Sterling Bay has proposed 201 spaces within the warehouse, and another 105 on adjacent property it wants to redevelop.

It wants to raze several small buildings around 1022 W. Fulton, just west of the warehouse, and replace them with a six-story, 178,000-square-foot center for offices and stores.........

The warehouse covers 380,000 square feet and stands out in overhead photos as a large structure just outside the city’s high-rise neighborhoods. Assessment records show the building is at least 89 years old.

During the years of gentrification on the Near West Side, many speculated the building would become residential. Some in the area now say the commercial proposal is better suited to the manufacturing district..........

I like the fact that the Fulton area is commercial
and that this area will be more Commercial. It cant all be residential,
and ofcourse mixed uses makes an area more interesting and safe as its more busy during the day and night.

Hopefully we will hear whether One south Halsted was approved within the next few months, it is a 50 story apartment building that could be the South Loops tallest, it could be anywhere from 150-200m or so.
