seems shocked? Maybe Falor is not an experienced developer some people thought.

Interesting timing though, especially right after that video of her and Paris making some pretty nasty remarks surfaced. Oh will they ever learn?

^ So are you reading this to say that the deal is over with, or it's still happening but in a nastier and more litigious tone? Falor seems to be on one end or another of a lawsuit in just about everything he's involved in.

Michigan Ave 2 update

Finally, I saw a rig on site. I had thought this one was in a holding pattern. Looks like they were pounding steel rather than drilling caisons.


Additional good news for 14th and Michigan.
Also I heard from some guys at the Firehouse restraunt the the National Letter Carriers Association bulding has sold for 9 million. Anyone see anything? The site can support a huge building.

1411 S Michigan I believe. It would be nice if that 80's garbage was demolished.

National Letter Carriers Association building is just south of the Firehouse restaurant on the East side of the street. It's a one story biege 80s style building - easily missed.

Tsk tsk....Nicky Out of both projects. She should've developed her skills in the Hilton hotel business before striking out on her own.

FIORETTI UNVEILS PLAN FOR “GREENEST WARD”
Second Ward would lead city toward environmental sustainability

CHICAGO—Bob Fioretti, candidate for Alderman in the 2nd Ward, announced this week that when elected, he plans to hire an independent green building specialist to take part in all meetings with developers and guide them in planning.

The plan is meant to ensure that all new developments in the ward follow green building standards established by the US Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. The green building professionals hired by the Alderman’s office will help educate developers about the long-term savings of green buildings and steer them through the unique challenges of building green. An opponent of closed-door deals with developers, Fioretti has pledged never to meet with developers without an independent voice present. His goal is to make the 2nd Ward the “greenest ward in the greenest city.”

In a further effort to encourage green building, Fioretti plans to offset the initial expense of building green by providing grants to cover expenses of LEED certification. He also said he would lobby for state and federal tax credits and property tax reductions for green buildings, similar to incentives available for historic structures. Fioretti added that developers already have the opportunity to take advantage of the City’s Green Permit Process, which expedites permits and waives developer service fees for eligible projects.

“Mayor Daley has taken great steps toward greening our city,” Fioretti said. “I will work with both developers and residents to ensure that the 2nd Ward leads the way toward an environmentally sustainable future.”

According to Alex Nikolich, a leading green building consultant at Henneman Engineering, located in Chicago’s 2nd Ward, Fioretti’s plan could greatly improve the quality of life for 2nd Ward residents. He cited occupant well-being, comfort, and long-term sustainability as common benefits of green building.

“With this plan, construction quality will be enhanced, utility bills will be lower, and quality of indoor air will be more stringently monitored,” Nikolich said. “In addition, less waste will be generated during the construction process and depletion of natural resources will be minimized.”
