Anyone citing Cook County data should cite the source. Direct counts in the Recorder's office itself? An online source? Which?

Homemania,

Tribune shows date recorded, not closing date. Usually there is a 30 day log before Cook County records it.

Impressive interest at 235 WVB

I closed on my unit on Nov. 17 and have spent some time at the building putting the unit together. I cannot believe the huge amount of traffic to the sales office and the models. With that many people showing interest in the building, the sales office should be able to closed on at least 5 contracts a week. The feeling inside the building is very alive and vibrant. My only takeaway so far is still the amount of construction work and workers in the building. I can't wait to have them all done and gone.

Just saw on CribChatter that BofA has filed against developer of Silver Tower in River North which also has about 33% closed. Not looking good for these downtown developments that were a little late to the party.

70% sold

I just talked to the sales center and they are 70% sold. Hopefully this means that they don't auction the rest of the units off or do anything to ruin the property values of the owners.

This building is an abortion... Im surprised Perkins and Will would release something this contrived.

...but at least the units are going for fairly cheap

What a great design. I like the design on the top most of this building.

^ As of yesterday they claim to be 65% sold.

Not sure why this number doesn't seem to be going up after all this time.

Either way, I did meet a few people who are renting in the building and they don't appear to have any complaints.

All in all, I think it's biggest appeal is the location as well as the south-facing balconies, which have a better view than one would think.

Good for an investment, I'd say, presuming it doesn't take too long to get a renter.

Shot during a 90-minute helicopter fly-around yesterday. Within a few days we'll have tons of photos up on Flickr. We've posted a few videos at our YouTube channel, and we'll be adding more.

I just noticed the obnoxious blinking lights on the roof, they must be new. It was actually broad daylight when out of the corner of my eye they caught my attention, and I was in Pilsen! They appeared to be "white" in the daylight and red at night? I just thought they were too much.
