Just a couple more images:






I have high hopes for this one. Im just so nervous because Lowenburg is attached to it. But if it comes out right, this will be one of the best projects in Chicago in a long while and I might be able to look at Lakeshore East without cringing so much. This should be where the Chandler and the Regatta are located.
