CHICAGO | Hotel Palomar | 381ft | 36 Fl | Com

Height: 381 ft
Floor count: 34
Location: North State and East Illinois
Construction end: 2009
Architect: Guajardo REC Architects LLC
Developer: John Buck Company






For those that haven't read about it already - this will be a mixed-use building, combining the 259-room, 4-star Hotel Palomar and 121 condo units, as well as a "signature restaurant" operated by the hotel.

I figured this thing ought to have its own thread now that stuff is going on - I've heard reports that caissons are being drilled already. If we can get some photo confirmation, I'll bump this up to U/C.

I wish that they were buidling this structure across the street in that empty parking lot. I liked driving by and seeing the people use that space. The AMA building is a cool structure and it would have been nice not to cover it up. I am n ot being a "Nimby" in any way shape or forum, I would just rather see parking lots covered up instead of the one cool place that actually had some atmosphere. Now 680 rush is a place that should be covered up (not a good) public place.

sad to lose that park, though. it really was a nice open space in the city and complimented the AMA building really well. let's just hope this project adds something nice to the immediate vicinity.

yea I agree, I was shocked when I heard about this. I noticed something was up when I saw a truck, drilling for soil samples. but never saw anything on this board until the place was fenced off. never heard of a proposal or approval.

when I first moved to the area, I figured this park would be something permanent. the closest park now is millennium I think.

but o well, its in a great location we'll see how it plays out.

........no problem valley.....I hope to add many more as progress continues....

If you considered this a "park" then the Trump plaza should satisfy you, although it's a few blocks away. Also check out Olive Park next to Navy Pier - it's not as far as Millennium/Grant, if you want some green space.

Trump park is only a half a block away and it will be shared with my building. (405 Wabash). I'm very happy about that.

I didnt really care for this park because honestly everytime I walked through it, it was filled with many homeless and shady people.

The truth is that the homeless did impact the appeal of this park, but that's more to do with the proximity to the Red Line than the nice benches. I think the open space enhanced the beauty of the AMA building and it's a loss to the city to have this space filled in. That said, at this point I kind of like the design of the Palomar.

I agree with all 3 posts above this. that park wasnt anything to hang out in. and was always filled with homeless people. I was actually approached by one once sitting on a bench. he said some shady things and I bailed. the park was more of something to look at. but I wont miss it. and trump is actually at the foot of my building. I cant wait to enjoy that park.

Hmm - I'm much less annoyed with this project after seeing this rendering .

Still very sad about the park, though.
