The building is just OK. I dont really see a need for it. And the parking garage is just awful.

I am an old River East resident, and I think that the project is slotted for the rather large park/parking lot in front of the Sheraton hotel on the river.

I agree with the garage comment, but why is there no need for it? Something has to go on the nothern part of this site, and I'd be fine with a 500+ foot rental building with retail that adds to the area's density.

I'd rather have it an open air park of some kind. I'd rather have W=A stand alone on the site. I'm all for density, but that area is the most dense in the entire city. It doesn't need more density.

Isn't the Waldorf Astoria Hotel slated for that immediate area?

If they're prepping the site they are very discrete. I walked by this weekend and it looked like a parking lot to me. (Not that I was looking closely, but I probably would have noticed a bulldozer or something.)

yes. If someone could show a google map of the site, that'd be great.

It was in the boom rundown a while ago. There was a rig doing some drilling (soil testing or something) on the site. Whether the drilling was being done for the rental tower or WA I can't recall.

I don't think the podium is that awful. The architects decided to offset the podium from the main shaft of the tower and continue the tower's glass all the way to ground-level, along Illinois and Park Drive. I read somewhere that the podium will be clad with terra-cotta rainscreen, which looks fairly interesting. Certainly much better than painted concrete.

I don't want more open-air space. There's a large plaza right across the street. It's only underutilized because it's surrounded by parking lots and because it's boring. A giant clock is a novelty, and not a very interesting one to watch. Besides, there will be another small plaza between 319 East Illinois and W=A, to connect the clock plaza to the end of Ogden Slip. I think there might be a bridge across New Street, too.

Residents bristle at above ground parking garage
Streeterville group says proposal in violation of city planning guidelines

By Laure Putre
Contributing writer

3/5/2008 10:00:00 PM

Gail Spreen is fine with most of 57 stories proposed for a new rental tower at 319 E. Illinois, a high-profile spot between Michigan Avenue and Navy Pier that's now home to a surface parking lot. But she bristles at the bottom 12 floors, which are set aside for a concrete-walled parking garage.

"It's heavy and ugly," said Spreen, president of the Streeterville Organization of Active Residents, of the proposed parking garage. "It doesn't even go along with the tower at all."

Spreen said 319 E. Illinois is Exhibit A in SOAR's case against bland street-level parking garages that block out light and give pedestrians a view of monotonous gray slabs. Sometimes, she added, such garages are an afterthought to otherwise elegant or architecturally interesting skyscrapers, tacked on without concern for the street life of the neighborhood.

Kudos to SOAR for being perhaps the most enlightened community group in the city (by far).

However, why is SOAR not raising a similar issue with The Peshtigo?

I dont understand the brick. Is there some cost benefit to use it? Why not just match the tower. That would solve the whole problem.

There is some work going on at the site in case any of you are interested (and I know some of you are):
