Oh no! Is that the other side of the rendering facing away from the street!? It looks like a blank wall! And you guys know what that means...!

^ I'm not following. Are you concerned about demolition of historic structures nearby? Whatever--it's over for River North's historic building stock. If it ain't landmarked by now then wave it all bye-bye

No. This is the same side visible in the rendering. The glass side of the building will face state.

The blank wall will only go as high as the parking (five floors if the rendering is accurate). It faces an alley anyway.

TUP, I mean the backside of 660 N State facing the alley. The rendering doesn't show what that looks like, and from the rendering, it looked as if it was a blank concrete wall. But apparently the blank wall only goes five floors, thanks for clearing that up Geoff.

What's with the plywood? It's a very progressive look, but I don't think it'll survive even one Chicago winter.

On a side note, I love these smaller projects that can go from caisson drilling to pouring floors within a month or two.

I was convinced, before, that once they got past the base of the tower the west facade would open up a bit. Now, I'm going to change my tune a bit and say that I think they (or the city) know something that we don't. I don't see the city pushing this through permitting with a blank wall to the west unless they were reasonably certain that something was going to be covering it shortly. Perhaps there is another tower in the works?

Dana Hotel to Open in Chicago
Laura B. Weiss
Interior Design -- 9/5/2007
New boutique property will feature "floating" sushi bar and full-service spa.

Boasting a "floating" sushi bar and a rooftop lounge, the sleek new 216-room Dana Hotel and spa will open its doors next summer on the corner of State and Erie Streets in Chicago's happening River North neighborhood. Architect Walter Eckenhoff of Chicago's Eckenhoff Saunders Architects designed the new $60 million property, a 150,000-square-foot building that also contains a state-of-the art spa.............28-foot high clear glass curtain wall exterior façade that will allow passersby to view the goings on inside the space. Among the amenities are a sushi-bar that appears to float in the lobby, a Japanese steak house and saki lounge, and a 4,100-square foot rooftop lounge topping off the 26-floor property................. The building's narrow profile—each floor covers only 5,700 square feet—means only a small number of guest rooms will be constructed on each floor.

The backside may be covered with a fake curtain wall, like they are (supposedly) doing to the backside of OMP.

I can't help but think of the Sofitel - looks great viewed from the South, with its cantileverd and angled glass curtain wall. But it actually has a big blank concrete wall if you look at it's North elevation. But I have to imagine the city has cracked down on this...or hope they have, at least.

Even w/ a fake facade on the west side you still have a nasty windowless 300foot wall staring you down...also since they are pretty much just painting the existing concrete I find it hard to believe anything even a fake curtain wall would make it any better.
