To my understanding yes. I am a future resident of BP, and I have been told that everything is as planned at this point.

They got their $83.5 million loan (.pdf) in January.

Thanks Geoff, I bought it last July... (before the prices went up 15%!) Fortunately it is still technically in the Loop... Gotta keep my cred.

You sure you don't want to change your name to PrintersRower?

They have started putting up a few panels of the glass facade at Burnham Pointe. Also, for those of you who haven't been in the South Loop/Printers Row recently, BP is only a floor or two from topping out, and they also only have one more floor to go before finishing the parking garage too.

Topped out, I think. I don't see any rebar at the tops of the piers.

Thanks for the update Mr Downtown.

It is bittersweet to see the progress on Burnham Point. I have a contract on a unit at BP, but since I am now living in NYC, I will never have the pleasure of living there (nor will I ever have as nice a place here in NYC).

The crane came down from Burnham Pointe this past weekend. Glass installation and exterior whatever that stuff is proceed apace.

I've offered to personally paint over the heinous crap brown "whatever that stuff is" you referred to. Hardly a shade Burnham would've chosen. Maroon better choice in Printers Row. Another instance of idiot developers!

Also, those brown panels match exactly to the new Best Buy exterior, near Roosevelt/Canal. Surely the condo owners will be impressed their building shares exterior materials from the nearby Best Buy. Terrapin's a fraud

Up close they have a slightly beaded, metallic sheen, more copper or bronze than brown:

In your picture, use the vertical construction tower red shade to envision how better this Printers Row structure could've looked, instead of glass/copper exterior.

The Best Buy under contruction on Roosevelt, has the exact same gross copper (fine, it's not brown) panel exterior. BRUTAL!

If you're of the opinion that the painted red fins of Museum Park Place will look more handsome in 20 years than these metallic copper panels, I fervently disagree. The more I looked at these up-close yesterday, the more I admired the way they work with the other metal cladding.

The color of the trim might be the least of the problems with this one. Looks like Terrapin is not in great shape financially.

Mr D, maroon-shaded buildings have made Printers Row handsome for ~100 years. My point is, given the opportunity to pay a small respectful gesture to the neighborhood, developers should do just that. Especially when bringing steel/glass to a historic warehouse/loft area.

I don't see this as Printers Row. I see W. Clark as more like Wabash peering over the Michigan Avenue Streetwall. This stretch is no an extension of Printers Row, but a long stretch of 20-42 story modern steel/glass buildings. 90% of this area is undeveloped and the buildings down the street should not drive this area.

It is interesting how BP and AMLI (and eventually others) are affecting the feel of Printers Row and DPI. Walking down Dearborn and into DPI, with these much taller buildings peeking over the nearer, shorter ones, there's definitely more of a sense of enclosure from both sides now, a feeling that you're in a kind of enclave within a continuous fabric rather than at the boundary of something.

From that article: "the control of other Terrapin projects could be in play. The biggest one is a 298-unit condo building under construction at 710 S. Clark that Terrapin claims is more than 55 percent sold. The building goes by the name Burnham Pointe. . . . Geleerd asserted he was close to selling the Burnham Pointe condo inventory to somebody whose cash would prop up the company."

Um, so what happens if he can't? Really, what the hell happens in a situation like this? Does it just sit there unoccupied until somebody buys the remains and finishes developing it? It doesn't sound like Terrapin will even be around long enough to get the association started and handed over. Does the bank take over?
