I swung the RC cam all the way to the west and it looks like there are crews begining to do work on the East side of the River at Taylor Street. Centrum is this a staging area or are you guys getting ready to do site prep work on Taylor Street?

we are staging between wells and the river. we are renting that land for a few months.

Taylor Street is fully vacated and we won't be doing any work on it. Taylor was replaced w/ 9th street. We did that at CDOT's request.

Well, there is a webcam (link at the top of the page) that gives a really nice overview of what's going on.

The Roosevelt Collection site is outside the normal "beat" for the regular photographers, and the Roosevelt overpass is BRUTALLY cold and windy at this time of year, since it's so barren.

Speaking of the overpass, are there any renderings or information about where RC will be connected to the street grid? Will you be able to access it from Roosevelt Rd.? I dont remember ever reading anything about it.

Roosevelt Collection will have an intersection with Roosevelt at 150W, or approximately LaSalle Street. This will be from the Roosevelt Road level, and will be the main retailing level.

The parking garage will also have entries from Wells Street, down on ground level.

Construction is up to the second retail level, but it's snowing too much to get a good picture right now:

I visited the sales center last week and was very impressed. I was told the high rise section is currently being considered rental given the mortgage environment. The scale model is really well done. I did not have my camera with me unfortunately.

CDOT has on their website a page for Wells Street reconstruction. It rebuilds 9th Street up to the Metra viaduct on both the east and west sides. This is planned to be finished by late summer. Once it's done, then CDOT will probably begin to plan for underpass construction.

Well, the new 9th Street cul-de-sac coming west off Clark (next to Amli 900) is open. CDOT is working on Wells south of Polk and the relocation of Financial Place right now. I was surprised that the plans include only a little stub of 9th east from Wells, with no mention of a Metra underpass:

The cross-sections of 9th Street, visible in that press release, show 9th Street sloping down before the Metra tracks. There's no reason to do that unless an underpass is planned.

So, to the best of your knowledge, the highrise portion is moving forward and will be a part of this phase?

A few clarifications if anyone knows the answers...

1. CDOT says they are adding a left turn lane for southbound traffic onto Taylor from Wells... where does this go to? The parking garage at the RC? It almost looks like it will line up with the south end of the park, but I expect it to go right into the parking garage.

2. CDOT shows some work along Clark including widening the street and the sidewalk for a small section near AMLI's project. Does anyone know the details of the AMLI project? Do they plan to extend this from PL to PL or do they plan to keep the 6' walk at their property lines.

3. Does anyone know any plans for CTA lines along Clark now that 1,000s of units (triple towers at Clark/Polk, Amli, Burnham Pointe, dorms, D3's project) will be added there plus the added population along Wells (RC)?

4. When discussing high rises for RC, are we discussing the high rise at the NW corner of the RC (SW corner of the park) or the stand-alone tower at Financial and Polk? I really like that tower and how it does a great job hiding the parking podium, maintaining views/sunlight for the neighbors, and a lot of open space.

5. Anyone know what the story is with the property south of the Paper building? It looks like with the relocation of Financial, the lot has only about 100' from public way to public way. That is not enough to get two bays of parking (very ineifficent for parking garage/podium) and likely will result in lack of interest for the property (it has been for sale for a long time). It seems inevitable that it will now be a surface lot for a very long time.

I was told occupancy is 12-18 months away.

Yes, it will be built, just not sure if it is condo or rental.
