I don't recall this being posted here. They started drilling caissons on Friday. I assume that this is going to be counted as 2 seperate buildings, and the sales center is still on site, but it was closed when i got over there.

I can't wait until these developments keep moving west; eventually I want someone to buy up that 100 city block plot occupied by the Moody Bible Institute and those other religious organizations. I don't have anything against religious groups or anything (well maybe I do, but I don't want to open that up here), but they tend to be some of the worst developers out there as far as land use principles go.

Colliers tapped to sell Scottish Rite Cathedral

Colliers Bennett & Kahnweiler Inc. has been hired to market the historic Scottish Rite Cathedral, one of few buildings that predate the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. An official asking price hasn’t been set, but the property, at 929 N. Dearborn St. in the landmark Washington Square District, is projected to draw bids around $4 million, says Mike Senner, a senior vice-president with the Rosemont brokerage. The property is part of Walton on the Park, a mixed-use project developed as a joint venture by two Chicago-based companies, Enterprise Cos. and Mesirow Financial Real Estate. The 30,600-square-foot cathedral, constructed between 1869 and 1873, was known as the Unity Church until the Scottish Rite fraternal organization acquired it in 1911. Likely buyers include religious organizations and performing arts groups, which would benefit from the stage area and stadium seating for 700, Mr. Senner says.

Can anyone tell me how Pappageorge/Haymes get as much work as they do? Every single design is static, uninspired and seem to rely on one or two painfully simple massing moves to drive the form development. Every high rise I have seen on theirs suffers from terrible material selection, ugly curtain walls and awful proportions...


...just terrible

I'm actually pretty pleased with how the base turned out.



The problem, of course, is that they built this side anticipating phase II.

I liked it in the renderings but in real life all those perpendicular lines make it look too cluttered. The overall shape is unoffensive though.

Well give it time. Hopefully if the condo market rebounds phase two will be even taller and help make the massing on this look a lot better.

Also will there be street retail?

Phase II has been mothballed until the economy improves. Two or so floors of retail are being built in its place, unfortunately.
