And this one is under a lot of consternation at the present.

The blue prints still exist and hopefully one day they will be revived.

But at this point we are looking out at a start date in 1.5-2
.75 years.

The neophyte developer is licking his or her finger and putting it up to the wind to test the waters, politically and I would also figure financially to test the needs and monies of the site before real work would begin.

That is just my take from the postings on this said tower for the last 6 months or so.

I could even imagine another developer to take over this project, ala the Fordham, and em cough Chicago Spire developments.

The plan is solid and I figure it will happen someday, esp from what is going on with the wildly tall development going on in the south part of Grant park.

Anyway....

Park Michigan
Renaissant Development Group, LLC
376 Units, 80 Stories
830 S. Michigan Ave.,
Chicago, IL 60605

An ultra-thin 80-story glass tower rises above this mixed-use development. Set to be an icon along Michigan Avenue, the project includes 376 luxury dwelling units accessing full service amenities, which includes an upscale spa, restaurant, grocer and a large landscaped sky garden. The renovation of a landmark façade adds to the importance and excitement of Park Michigan in the Chicago cityscape.Activity surrounds the base of the tower with parking hidden at its core. By balancing the south loop skyline height with the city core to the north, Park Michigan will add to the completion of the intent of the historic Burnham Plan for Chicago. This urban statement and high level of architectural detail will redefine the nature of the south loop neighborhood.

I can see that the sales center is opend in 2007.

I emailed the sales center over two months ago asking about the status of the project and haven't heard back.
