BVictor said that OMP West will be 620', which makes sense since it is the "little brother" to the 720' OMP.

Other misc. news:

Twelve55 is now called Sky55 and is still UC but TO
Lakeside Tower is TO
Prairie Pointe is TO
Museum Tower is TO

There's a better rendering of OMPWest on the front page now, thanks to BVictor. Also, OMP had a little height increase.

Chicagotom said he went to the sales center for the opening of 1600 MP. Sales were not yet 50% in the first day and OMP West was over 50% in 8 hours. Looks like these two are basically a go from a sales standpoint.

1. The construction lift has been taken down from the side of Sky55 and the final marble is being set on the exterior. I really like the look of this rental building. (13th and Michigan)

2. Prairie Pointe - today the last floor forms are in place to top off the roof. (16th and Prairie)

3. Vision (13 and Wabash) - while this is technically outside of Central Station, I havent seen any other thread that covers it. The tower crane was put in place this last weekend.

4. 1400 MP (14th and Michigan) - The site is completely cleared and I expect caisson cranes to be in place in a week or so.

Thanks for the news. I was thinking about adding Vision on State and the Columbian and other buildings nearby but decided against it since they technically are not part of Central Station.

If you want to start a new thread on the Near South Loop Congress to Cermak, The River to the Lake, I will be glad to keep it updated on what I see.

I haven’t seen Central Station on the first page in a while. Last night I took a look at the OPM1 site. The caissons are just about complete for the site and there is a segment of the garage that is between Tower 4 and OMP1 that is visable. Slow but steady progress.

They discovered literally hundreds of 30 foot trees that were used as pylons took them a while to pull these old growth trees out of the site.

Some Central Station photos I took Monday (4/10):

Museum Park Place.






Museum Tower


For those outside of Chicago who may not know, Central Station is more than just a group of high-rise condo projects. It also consists of brand new residential neighborhoods. Some of the infill is quite attractive.

E. 18th and Prairie








Sky55 in the background.








On the way back to the Loop.

Central Station & its surroundings are really coming out to be a much better community than Lakeshore East. Maybe that'll change when more buildings are completed in LSE with the Parkhomes especially and when retail and the school are finally revealed. Oh yeah, and when they fire Loewenberg.

I couldn't agree more. I walked around Central Station extensively and it looks and feels like a real neighborhood. Lakeshore East, on the other hand, has this strange atmosphere I can't quite vibe with. But, as you said, hopefully it will improve with the completion of additional projects.

hydrogen, thanks for the different perspective. Being from outside of Chicago and following/contributing to Chicago forums, I had no idea about these infill projects. I really like them, thanks.
