True but still, it doesn't help when you are in college and don't have a job. Maybe in about 10 - 15 I might be able to.

This project is symbolic of Chicago corruption. No website, no public contacts, no anything... yet leases are being signed.

Looks like a re-design is afoot. Let's pray it turns out interesting, though I doubt it will:

Movies back in the Loop
Will the show start on the sidewalk?

...
Certainly, it does not inspire confidence that the current developers of the retail base, Palatine-based Joseph Freed and Associates, initially refused to release the most recent renderings of the project. Their architects, the Chicago office of Gensler, are scrambling to redesign the exterior even as construction cranes are lifting the final pieces of Block 37's steel superstructure into place.

"We're just starting the design studies" to accommodate the movie theaters, says Gensler principal Grant Uhlir.

Are they still going to build those towers on top of it?

Looks suspiciously like an Apple store to me... but I could just be hallucinating.

^I'll have to qualify my above statement. Negotiations with Apple are still ongoing, so as yet there's no guarantee it will be a tenant.

Puma plans store at Block 37; Apple closer to lease
By Eddie Baeb, May 28, 2008


...Puma, the world’s third-largest sporting goods company, has leased a two-level space along State Street that’s almost 8,500 square feet, according to sources familiar with the matter.

...Sources say Freed is making progress in talks with iPod maker Apple to take a one-level store at Block 37 that could be as large as 6,000 square feet. Meanwhile Zara, which is part of Europe’s largest fashion retailer, Inditex S.A., is close to a deal for a two-level store at Block 37 that would be about 10,000 square feet. Zara has already signed leases to open larger stores at 700 N. Michigan Ave. and one at the Old Orchard mall in Skokie, which is to open this fall.
