Case in point -- have you noticed the dark grey/black stone at street level on the west and north sides of Parview West? What a gloomy ugly treatment for the corner of McClurg and Grand!

The new rendering is better, but in the end, a glass and aluminum hulk is only slightly better than a brown brick hulk.

The difference is that at McClurg & Grand, the structure is only 1 1/2 floors and the tower opens onto a 70,000 sq ft park. And the parking is below grade.

I thinl Parkview West is an extremely attractive tower.

Good points, the park is great, the parking underground, and the tower is attractive (in a yellow balcony kind of way). Guess I'm being picky, but when you're waiting at the bus stop on Grand, the view is pretty bunker-like.

I'm glad to see that improvements too, but I think it's funny that the developer is posting on here. Do they honestly think we are too stupid to know who wrote that? It's too bad there won't be any street level retail, because that would have fit in that spot really well.

There will be street level retail!

I't doesn't have to be the developer who posted, it could just as easily be someone for the architectural firm.

"There will be street level retail!"

That's great news, I think it will really add to the area. It's always tough because most people don't want retail in their building, but it really is important for the neighborhood.

Alderman Reilly and SOAR will be hosting a public presentation for the new development being proposed by Jupiter Realty Company for a new apartment tower across the street from the AMC Theaters and north of the new Loews Hotel Chicago. The developer is proposing to build a tower 513-foot high, 444-units, with 181 parking spaces and 11,650 of retail. We hope you will be able to attend and provide comments on the plans.


Here's What The Latest Streeterville Tower Could Look Like

By David Matthews | May 4, 2015 5:50am


Quote:
A 45-story, oval-shaped apartment tower with a rooftop pool is the latest high-rise proposed in Streeterville.

Chicago-based Jupiter Realty met last week with the real estate committee of a neighborhood group to discuss the 444-unit tower it wants to build at 465 N. Park Drive. The site, owned by insurance giant MetLife, has sat vacant since a pre-recession apartment building by another developer failed to launch.

If built, the tower designed by Chicago-based Pappageorge Haymes would feature 181 parking spaces within the building, a street-level restaurant, and two rooftop decks, including one with a pool, according to the Streeterville Organization of Active Residents. The apartments would be mostly studio and one-bedroom residences that include balconies.

Like a good neighbor, the new Loews Chicago Hotel played host to the Streeterville community Tuesday evening to introduce the potential new kid on the block, Jupiter Realty Company’s 465 North Park Drive. Alderman Brendon Reilly (42nd) let the public in on the updated plan for the site (Not this one – those are the old plans), a 513-foot, 45-story tower at the corner of North Park Drive and East Illinois Street.
Rendering of 465 North ParkThe vision of Pappageorge Haymes architect Brian Kidd, the 444-unit rental tower would provide 181 parking spaces on 5 levels. That’s a 43% decrease, for those public-transit champions doing the math. The overall 490,200 square feet would include 11,650 square feet of retail space. A five floor amenity level would feature a pool, greenspace, fire pits, and more luxuries.

Taller and thinner: http://www.chicagoarchitecture.org/2...aller-thinner/

Quote:
The new residential tower planned for 465 North Park Drive in Streeterville has been revised.

It is now slightly thinner than before, and 535 feet tall. Earlier versions of the plan made public had the building clinking just 513 feet tall. The 22-foot difference on the outside was caused by changes in the inside, where the number of three bedroom residences has been increased.
