I weep for anyone that finds this pleasing.
This is a great design.

i would disagree with CMillar on one point: this building definitely has a soul, or should i say a great ambition, but what i feel it lacks is elegance.

i personally don't think it comes together to create a coherant building. at the end of the day- in my opinion- architecture is not about how well we solve an equation or how scientifically correct it is. that was the intellectual cul-de-sac that design was stuck in back in the early 90's when architects were subscribing to scientific american magazine and using the cross sections of a fish superimposed onto their buildings in an effort to create "scientifically inspired" avante gard spaces.

jeanne and mark's building is much closer to the mark in terms of applied sciences in response to solar activity and exterior sheer wall application, but i believe it needed one more level of refinement. i read the science, but not the heart.

If I could just find a good job in Hyde Park next year I'll be seriously considering purchasing a unit in this thing.

The search is on...

Jeanie Gang is also designing another complex (20 something story tower and 8 story condo/retail/commercial building) located south of Kenwood High School and north of Harper Cout. The complex will have retail on the ground floor, offices and entertainment (restaurants/lounges), open space on the roof top of the 8 story condo building. It will have entrances and retail on both Lake Park Avenue and 52nd Street.

Solstice on the Park
Andrew Schroedter
January 26, 2009


...Englewood, N.J.-based Antheus plans to start construction this spring, unless financing proves impossible amid the credit crunch.

Eli Ungar, Antheus principal and partner, says his firm needs to sell between 40% and 50% of the units to secure a construction loan. If it reaches that benchmark soon, the glass-encased tower, billed as Hyde Park's first new condo high-rise since the mid-1970s, could be completed by the end of 2010, midway through Mr. Obama's term as president.

^As cheesy as it would be, I hope their marketing team is promoting Hyde Park as "home to President Barack Obama!".

man, i wish i was moving back to Chicago. What an awesome building in a gorgeous neighborhood. Plus, I'm just happy that some significant investment is coming back into the south side - hopefully this can spur some more investment in the surrounding areas, too.

Hyde Park's famed Shoreland Hotel may go rental
BY DAVID ROEDER AND FRAN SPIELMAN


...Antheus also is working with Gang at two Hyde Park sites where new condo buildings are contemplated. The sites are at 5101 S. Harper, where the company wants to replace a small shopping center with a 22-story building, and the northwest corner of 56th and Cornell, which would get a 28-story building.

The Cornell project is further along but has been caught in the housing downdraft. Ungar said more pre-sales are needed before he can finance it.
