INSIDE COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE
Unique opening planned for Lakeshore East mixed-use building

BY SUSAN DIESENHOUSE
Published May 9, 2007

A $400-million, 76-story mixed-use tower is being planned for Lakeshore East by Magellan Development LLC.

The striking design by Miami-based Arquitectonica features a 20-story opening through the building's midsection. The tower, which will rise at 375 E. Wacker Dr., has two intersecting components programmed to house a five-star hotel with 224 suites, as many as 671 condominiums and six stories of underground parking.

The sale of condominiums, priced from $500,000 to about $3 million, will start in August. By mid-2008, construction will get under way. The first residents are expected to move in two years later, said Jim Loewenberg, co-chief executive of Magellan.

So far at Lakeshore East, seven buildings with about 2,500 residential units have been built or are in construction. In total, the developer might put up 16 major buildings with about 5,000 units, Loewenberg said.

This is great! Not only is it taller, but it now has much sleeker and more attractive proportions!

Looks exciting, but I didn't find that at the LSE website - where did you find it?

I hope the developers don't downsize this one. The latest version has better proportions.

Chicago is booming.

And looks very good, the smaller version was already good, but the new version looks very sleek.

Every building should have at least one hole.

But this one adds some more unique character to the skyline (in addition to the CNA building, the diamond building, eventually the spire) with the overall design being elegantly straightforward. This one's a winner.

And of course even better now, it adds some more heft being a supertall. I'd like to see a rendering with this, Trump, W-A and the Spire, and see how they'll fill it out. Edit: I just saw one's been posted in another thread.

Magnificent Chicago!!!!! Chicago's profile is really increasing I can tell from travelling. Chicago lived in the shadows of NY for years but not anymore. This building is beautiful.

Lakeshore East's plans call for another 5 or 6 towers excluding this one. Some of the best lots for Lake Michigan views have yet to be developed. Certainly their will be some more tall ones (possibly supertalls) within LSE.
