CHICAGO | Tribune East Tower | 433m | 1422ft | 113 fl | Pro

New skyscraper rivaling Trump's in height could rise behind a redeveloped Tribune Tower


Bill Ruthhart and Blair KaminContact Reporters
Chicago Tribune
January 25, 2018

Quote:
A skyscraper that would rival President Donald Trump’s Chicago high-rise as the city’s second-tallest would emerge behind the historic Tribune Tower, while the neo-Gothic office building would be turned into condominiums under still-evolving plans described by an alderman and two sources familiar with the proposal.

Envisioned as a hotel and condominium tower sheathed in steel and glass, the new skyscraper would soar to a height of 1,388 feet, downtown Ald. Brendan Reilly and a source familiar with the plans confirmed. That would be a foot shorter than the hotel-condo high-rise that Trump, then a real estate developer and reality TV star, completed in 2009.

Tribune Tower, whose flying buttresses and pinnacle-topped crown have long made it a symbol of its namesake newspaper, would be turned into condominiums, Reilly and two sources said. The tower’s upper floors are already being gutted.

The plans, drawn up for the owners of the Tribune Tower property — CIM Group of Los Angeles and Chicago-based Golub & Co. — are expected to be presented to the Chicago Plan Commission by this summer.


Quote:
The new skyscraper would house 220 hotel rooms and 158 condo units, a source said. The redeveloped Tribune Tower would include 165 residential units, the source said. The Tribune Tower also would have retail on the first and second levels wrapping around the current Tribune complex, Reilly and a source confirmed.

This would be so awesome if it happened! Another 400+ meter building is just what Chicago needs

considering this is basically Chicago's equivalent to the Woolworth Building, I hope AS+GG can cook up a show stopper worthy of overshadowing it.



Trump Tower turned out pretty well, albeit conservative compared to some other AS+GG proposals and selected designs.

we'll see how their other American supertall project turns out in the end.

Massive New Michigan Ave Tower Uncovered and What It Might Look Like


credit : Urbana

Quote:
We’ve known for a long time that CIM Group has big plans for the surface parking lot behind the Tribune Tower. But we didn’t know they were this big.
The Los Angeles developer which bought the Trib building in 2016 with plans to convert the gothic skyscraper into residences so exclusive the internet hasn’t come up with a word for it yet, wants to put up Chicago’s third-tallest building, right at the foot of the Magnificent Mile.
The building at 201 East Illinois Street probably won’t keep that address, opting for a Michigan Avenue vanity address. Until a real name is announced, we’ll call it “Trib Two.”
CIM isn’t officially talking about Trib Two yet, but 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly has been loose-lipped about it recently, spilling the beans to the Tribune, itself, among others. According to multiple news reports, the new skyscraper will climb to within inches of the height of Trump International Hotel and Tower (401 North Wabash Avenue), the city’s second-tallest building just two blocks away. And that includes it’s height-cheating spire.
Very interesting is that the leaked details are very specific. Like a height of 1,388 feet. That’s a pretty specific number for a project that is supposedly in the very early planning stages. What would a 1,388-foot-tall skyscraper look like in this location? Well, this should give you an idea.
Again, we knew something big was going to come to this location. The land is too valuable to not reach for the sky. There’s no way CIM could make its money back under the existing DX-12 zoning.
That’s an awfully tall building for such a small slice of land. Or is it? New York has been all about the “Pencil Scraper” for the last few years. Two of them taller than Trib Two are under construction, and a third has already been built. Perhaps this is Chicago’s opportunity to get in on the trend.
And it’ll have to be pretty narrow. As you can see in the fantasy above, there is a little building taking up half of the available space. If you’re a frequent reader of this publication — and we know you are — you know that city ordinance requires that the Tribune Tower be visible from Ogden Slip. That means the only thing that can go in the south end of the parking lot is a little squatty little building. We’ll be kind and avoid calling it a podium. We’ll go with annex.
We know you’re eager for more information, but don’t hold your breath. Even if you’re Michael Phelps. Word on the street is that this won’t hit the Plan Commission until summer, which means the next round of leaks, rumors, and reports probably won’t be available until Aprilish. Though we’ll be happy to be wrong about that.

one thing I hope is that Chicago doesn't have to deal with the Tribune Tower being draped in protective netting for years on end like we had to deal with in NYC during The Woolworth Building's residential renovation.

Whatever it takes for work to be done properly.

It would be a real shame to demolish that beautyful old tower. Just build the tower on that parking lot.

Jesus... Thanks for the clarification.
And you never know man: with some of the little jewels that New York has torn down recently. It's not that obvious!

That looks amazing! Also, bringing all that retail to the street level of the existing Tribune Tower should be great for the area.
