Ah, thanks. Looks...blocky. But it's from Booth Hansen, so it'll be alright. It's also awesome that it is two towers.

Lauren brings Rugby brand to Lincoln Park
Polo Ralph Lauren plans to open a store this summer for its new Rugby brand at Armitage and Sheffield avenues in Lincoln Park. New York-based Polo is aiming at the 18-to-25-year-old set with Rugby, and has opened five shops so far. The retailer has signed a lease for about 4,000 square feet now occupied by Out of the West at 1000 W. Armitage Ave., says Sean Conlon, owner of the building and partner of residential real estate brokerage Sussex & Reilly. [Alby Gallun]

An update on 3660 N. LSD:

Second ‘New York’ Tower Along Lake Shore Drive Clears HurdleBy Mark Ruda
Last updated: March 29, 2006 06:34pm
http://www.globest.com/news/506_506/.../144325-1.html

CHICAGO-Backed by a lawsuit settlement, American Invsco’s plan to add a long-awaited twin to the New York Residences at 3660 N. Lake Shore Dr. is moving ahead. Rather than matching the existing 46-story, 593-unit building to the west, plans for the southwest corner of Lake Shore Drive and Waveland Avenue call for 212 units in a 29-story building.

In addition to the second tower, American Invsco plans to build 16 townhouses. The company says it does not have plans or price points ready for the new addition to the lakefront. However, recent sales this year have ranged from $146,000 to $353,000, according to documents filed at the Cook County Recorder of Deeds office. That would likely make the new building worth at least $50 million. American Invsco paid $7.9 million for the site of the second tower in 2000, according to property records, when it also acquired the existing New York multifamily building for $87.1 million. It then converted the rental units to condominiums.

Although the plan commission recently endorsed the project, the second tower was the result of a settlement between the city and American Invsco, which sued after the entire 3660 N. Lake Shore Dr. was down-zoned. While high-rise condominiums are south on Lake Shore Drive, residential buildings across Waveland Avenue are between three and seven stories, Department of Planning and Development officials note.

“This was a balancing act,” says 46th Ward Alderman Helen Shiller, who presided over several public hearings about the proposed second tower. Still, neighbors including the existing condo association asked for the recommendation to the city council be delayed until an agreement covering construction-related issues was reached, but were turned down. “There’s no reason to withhold our decision,” said 50th Ward Alderman Bernard Stone.

I like that tower a lot. Not sure why, but it is quite modern and I like the idea of have townhomes on the bottom.

That is correct. Go to www.preservationchicago.org, then scroll to "At risk" and then click on "Lost." You will then see the ornate Parkway Tavern building, which was demolished to make way for the low-rise condo that is shown above.

The loss of the Parkway Tavern building was certainly not justified.

Well we never really learn in this city it seems. As we are on the subject, anyone know what's going on with the Artful Dodger?

thank you!
it especially pains me to see this building gone because i grew up very close to that area, and ive always though it was a beautiful building, one that i wouldnt even think would be in danger of destruction, it is quite shocking what is happening in parts of chicago,

i really hope that ******* doesnt knockdown the artful dodger, what a ******* moron, he doesnt understand that its worth more as is then whatever idiotic project he has in mind

The Artful Dodger is one of those buildings that shows you what the old Chicago looked like. It would be a true tragedy if it were to be torn down. What's the good in having so many alderman in this city if they all just do stupid things?

^ HOW? It is simply being replaced with a single family home. And why would anyone want to get rid of a corner tavern?

What a bunch of bullshit

Before everybody has a major fit over these demolitions, lets not forget the hundreds; no, thousands, of buildings that WILL be preserved and live for another generation.

What it comes down to is this: What can Chicago do?

When I walk around Chicago, esp in the north side hoods and River North, I see a lot of prewar buildings that are....well...TOO SHORT.

I know--some teardowns are replacing buildings with LESS dense replacements--but lets face it, the vast majority of teardowns are replacing buildings with BIGGER structures, as in the case of the Parkway Tavern building.

Lets look at River North--I would love to see some of those smaller buildings preserved, to help maintain that area's character. But we can't deny the enormous demographic pressure going on--people want to move into Chicago's nice neighborhoods, and BADLY. The only way to accommodate them is to build large. These old buildings just won't do.

Chicago's downtown neighborhoods are different from New York--downtown Chicago has NEVER been much of a residential neighborhood until now. Thus, a lot of its prewar construction never tailored to such needs. Manhattan, on the other hand, was always a place to live, and thus has plenty of dense prewar construction. These old buildings continue to serve the purposes of newer generations, and thus do not face the threat of demolition that Chicago's do.

The bottom line: Chicago's center city functions are changing a HELL of a lot, and in many ways it has no choice but to make the appropriate sacrifices to its streetscape to accommodate

^ It's just really sad walking through river north and seeing a great old building and knowing that it probably won't be around for many more years. Chicago's a city that's always been changing, though. If you've ever read the book Lost Chicago, you'll see how many great 19th century buildings the downtown area lost in the name of progress. It's really shocking to see how many great buildings were torn down. But a lot of the time, it simply couldn't be avoided. Chicago had a relatively small downtown to work with, so it had to make the best of its space or stay a backward thinking city.

This city's gone from being a mostly New England looking town, to a city with grand classical structures that looked like they belonged in Europe, to a city with the earliest skyscrapers on the planet, to a city of art deco and cathedral towers, to the city of Mies... Anyway, this city has changed a lot. And as long as Chicago is thirsty to be a dominating and powerful city, it has to keep changing. But it still sorta sucks.

Lincoln Park Developments

Sorry in advance if this information is already out here and I'm just not good at finding it.

Does anyone have any information/pictures on the new developments proposed for Deming Place (next to the Marlborough) and on St. James. I heard the developer is presenting details on the latter tomorrow.

Also, heard financing has almost been locked for redevelopment of the Columbus Hospital site and that something should be announced this month. Anyone have any news?
