An updated version of the Central Station book written by Fogelson (sp?) was handed out to all residents of Museum Park developments a few weeks ago. There are som really interesting tid-bits in there along with renderings of the Gateway project (like 12-15 new high rises) from 14th to 22nd street over the metra electric tracks. If no one has seen this before, i'll post it. Otherwise, some other interesting facts..

- Frank Gehry was originally going to be the architect for at least one (or more) grant park towers on roosevelt.
- One of the earliest concepts for the central station area on roosevelt that was incredibly close to happening was a soviet-american trade center. The project collapsed along with the USSR. But not before Fogelson was taken to an undisclosed location in Russia to attend a super upscale dinner party. Contracts had already been signed before this concept fell apart.
- The large median down indiana ave was (is?) supposed to have a light rail track.
- Mayor Daley lives in Park Row
- There is a hillary rodham clinton park somewhere in the south loop

if anyone finds these interesting, i'll post a few more things i came across in the book. Otherwise, if this is old news, i'll be quiet
.
I'll post more if he gives us more details

I'm not going to start a new thread for this project. It is just a proposal that hasn't been approved. It's just the dream of the developers of Central Station. It would basically be the southern extension of Central Station.

Here are some massing renderings of what could be...

The project won't even be started for at least 5 years, I see no point to do it this soon.

Sometimes I lose sight of the fact this is a 700-footer. It really soars.

It is a perfect location for this tower. It really stands out. Great photos.

Any news about the other towers planned?

According to BVictor1 at SSP, Grant Park 3 and 4 have been approved by the Plan Commission.

Condo confidence
NEAR SOUTH SIDE |
Despite housing slowdown, developer says buyers still interested in Roosevelt Road high-rises

June 20, 2008Recommend

BY DAVID ROEDER [email protected]

Reports of the death of the housing market in Chicago have been greatly exaggerated, the developer of the Near South Side's largest new neighborhood said Thursday.

Gerald Fogelson said he's still selling condominiums in his Central Station development and he has enough confidence to lay the groundwork for two new high-rises worth about $800 million.

By the end of the year, Fogelson said, he expects to sell more than $400 million in condos for 2008, a pace he said is down slightly from prior years.

.........The commission agreed that a building Fogelson plans for the southwest corner of Roosevelt and Indiana can be 790 feet, or 73 stories vs. the current allowance of 620 feet. He said he will start marketing the units next year and hopes to break ground in late 2009.............
