Does anyone know what is going on at the southernmost LSD Mansion? I think it is around 1200 N or so. I drove past it on LSD earlier and the entire front stoop and steps were completely removed.

One of the weirdest press releases I've read in some time, like a meditation on the hotel industry, design and service.

Ian Schrager launches Public brand in Chicago
May 24, 2011


....Schrager responds to this cultural shift by creating public spaces within the new Chicago hotel that accommodate this ever-present need for social interaction. PUBLIC Chicago’s “chat rooms” known as the Living Room and the Library will juxtapose comfortable, intimate seating areas with communal work tables and computer stations. Reminiscent of 1950’s American and European coffee houses and French patisseries, The Library will house a coffee bar during the day, offering Stumptown coffee with an array of coffee selections from around the world. By night, the Library is transformed into a sexy lounge and bar offering a full bar, draught beer, international bottled beers, specialty cocktails and small plated exotic food by Jean-George Vongerichten. The Library will also be the perfect spot to enjoy dessert after dining at the new restaurant. Off of the Library is the candlelit Backroom which doubles as a Screening Room and hosts comfortable lounges and intimate seating for enjoying private screenings in an unique and comfortable way, video installations, poetry readings, original performances, relaxing and entertaining.

Although the famed Pump Room is undergoing a complete renovation, it will still be Chicago’s beloved restaurant, but better! The new food concept by world-renowned, chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten will be inspired by his 2011 James Beard Best New Restaurant award winning, ABC Kitchen in New York City, but tailored for Chicago. The restaurant will offer reasonably priced, delicious favorites in a relaxed, comfortable environment. Jean-Georges will also support local purveyors, regional flavors and offer a “farm to table” experience as well as a daily special chef’s tasting menu of the most unique creations. At night, the restaurant’s bar will be transformed into a supper club recapturing the glamour of the 30’s and 40’s with a modern twist. Offerings will include light tapas style food including Asian specialties, exotic cocktails and great music. For the first time, guests will have all of their needs for dining, drinking, relaxing, working or entertaining under one roof for both day and night.

I see this was posted this past summer, but I overlooked it. Glad to hear this block will be redeveloped, presumably with the parking lot disappearing and on-site parking build underground (hopefully no above ground parking podium).

...and you missed the proposed design that was released a few months later
