I will tell you this much, it will be nice to see a building arround here that isn't just a few boxes with an antena on it....

I always wondered what they were going to build on that spot, granted i like all them trees. It is ncie to see something new, rather then those fugly condos being built south loop.

For those of you are who are like "oh it won't fit" please go to the library or watch pbs and learn Chicago's place with arcitecture. It was an experiment ground especially after the great fire. Chicago is an arcitecture experamenting city historically, and we should be open to new and inovative ideas.

Yeah, that's what they're doing. The only thing that will actually spiral is the piping at each of the building's seven corners. I believe these will be made of stainless.

High Sky Zephyr over at SSP, who was involved in the engineering of this at an early stage, said that the tubing will probably be made in pieces and assembled in place.

Since it will most likely be made in pieces, it can be fashioned anywhere in the world and transported here.

OK gang - I'm getting a better picture now. The glass on each floor will be slightly segmented to LOOK like a radius. (Hopefully, structurally sealed, only a caulk joint visable from the exterior, no mullion snap caps.) Having the SS piping 'smooth' the transitions is a good idea. I would guess inbetween floors, a 'slab edge cover' could be designed for the transition. Still not convinced though . . .
Thanks to everyone for their 'constructive' criticism!

April 19 Plan Commission

A proposed amendment to Residential-Business Planned Development No. 368, as amended,
and Lake Michigan and Chicago Lakefront Protection Application No. 515 submitted by
Shelbourne North Water Street, LP for the property generally located at 410 - 450 North
Lake Shore Drive. The applicant proposes amend the Bulk Regulations and Data Table to
reduce the maximum permitted amount of commercial space and the maximum permitted
number of hotel rooms, and to increase the maximum number of residential units from 4,680
to 5,730 and to increase the maximum Floor Area Ratio from 9.97 to 11.48. All changes
would affect Sub-area G, only, where the maximum permitted number of residential units
would increase from 300 to 1,350 and the maximum Floor Area Ratio would increase from
10.0 to 32.0. The proposed changes would permit construction of a residential tower
approximately 2,000 feet high, containing up to 1,350 residential units, and approximately
1,350 off-street parking spaces. (42nd Ward)
