[b]A Look at the Apartment Tower That Will Replace Ed Debevic's



Quote:
Last night, under the rafters of the old cable car powerhouse now serving up pizzas as Gino's East, developer JDL unveiled their new plan to replace the Ed Debevic's restaurant in River North with a new apartment tower. The community meeting began with an opening by Alderman Brendan Reilly who made mention of the unprecedented flood of new development proposals that are coming forth due to the improving economy. There are presently 80 projects in one way, shape or form proposed in the greater central core of the city. This particular project is going by the address of 640 North Wells Street and is sited on the Ed Debevic's property which stretches through the block between Ontario and Erie Streets. The project team includes Developer JDL, James Plunkard of Hartshorne Plunkard Architects and the traffic engineers of KLOA.

As proposed, the high-rise will stand at 22 stories (including a rooftop space), 251 apartments, 12,000 square feet of ground floor retail space and 117 parking spaces. The parking will be located on the second and third floor, minimizing the scale of the podium the tower rises from. The base incorporates a glass enclosed three level residential lobby and the Wells Street frontage of the parking levels are clad with a European porcelain material with semi transparent properties. This will allow the podium to have a soft glow as if it was covered with alabaster stone. The existing alley will be widened by approximately four feet and will accept all ingress and egress for the tower and all other existing curb cuts will be removed, thereby greatly enhancing the pedestrian experience of the block.

I was wondering what's replacing Ed Debevic's. Looks pretty nice, actually!
