Centrum, could you possibly please post renderings of the two high-rise towers that are attached to this development? Thanks in advance if it's a possibility.

TUP: I couldn't believe what I saw when I rode over there. The length of this project along wells is unbelievable. Before today I only look at it from Roosevelt looking North.

In response to your question about the lot for sale at 801 South Wells....I could be mistaken, but I believe that RC only goes from Roosevelt to where 9th street would be. There is a separate lot between Polk and 9th, along Wells.

Lot between 9th and 801 S. Wells

That is correct, except that there is a loft building at the corner of Polk & Wells (801).

The vacant lot in question is not part of the development. Like the sign says, it's for sale (at a largely prohibitive price).

900 S. Clark. It's an SCB design, although they don't feature on their website. Development is by AMLI, so it will be all rental residences with maybe some retail. I pulled this small rendering from their website:



Targeted to be LEED Silver, and it is getting permit under the Chicago Green Permit program. It is flying up.

we only go to 9th street on the west side. We go all the way to Polk on the east side.

We've started to drill grout shafts to fill the tunnel. The steel shaft you see is for an tunnel access shaft.

Test piles should start today (Monday). We are off and running.

Maybe you could do a screenshot, save it as an image, and post it. Just an idea

Just upload your file (send it to your own email address), and it will stay available for 7 days. The website will provide you with a link that you can post here.

Thanks for the efforts, and all the great information.

I was wondering how many Tower Cranes you guys are going to have up when you start building the midrises? 2, 3, 4? This is going to look great

Wow! Centrum, at this point can you share any of the retailers slated to set up shop at the Roosevelt Collection?
