I don't know if it's under option, under contract, or closed. But Amli is spending money on architects and plans for the site.

AMLI loft project at Clark & Polk:

Yes, that's corrugated metal in between "prefinished metal panels." The architect claims this design is "for the future." I think it's a leftover project from Seattle's Belltown. At any rate, it certainly doesn't belong to Chicago's South Loop.

Sorry for the photo quality; these were taken in a rather dark room.

Construction hasn't started, but the plan is a go. According to the Chicago Architecture Blog, the project is self-financed, so it'll happen no matter what the banks think.

I've heard groundbreaking late this summer/fall, with completion in 18 months.

Here's CAB's article about it: Bad Economy Good for South Loop Developer
