The owners of the existing General Growth Properties Building probably decided to get rid of the building because it is substantially lower than the buildings surrounding it. I heard some comments on Curbed.com that the existing building should be preserved. Good luck with that, because you would need to add 40-plus floors to the General Growth Building in order for it to match up with its neighbors. I think the new building on the site would obviously fill the gap between the Civic Opera Building and 150 North Wacker Drive more efficiently.

While I think that the current building has a nice design, I agree with your sentiment about the need for replacement. There is no good justification for a lowrise to exist on a site as prominent as this one. It is in one of the densest parts of the Loop, and it is next to the river. Nothing under 150m belongs here. The proposed replacement is not just tall, but it has a nice design as well.

Goettsch-Designed Office Tower Approved by Chicago Plan Commission
Quote:
The Chicago Plan Commission has unanimously approved a proposal for a 51-storey office tower at 110 North Wacker Drive. Designed by Goettsch Partners for The Howard Hughes Corporation and Riverside Investment & Development, 110 North Wacker carries over the same development, design, and leasing team that collaborated on the recently completed 150 North Riverside project, and promises a similarly contemporary design replete with glass curtain wall and special amenity spaces.

This proposal would have looked a lot better ten years ago.

How so? This looks similar to most of the major office buildings being built throughout the world nowadays. It complements the rest of the Chicago skyline nicely as well.

Love this location. The former Morton Salt Headquarters building, now General Growth is a nice throwback to the 1950's when Wacker Drive was not the Canyon Drive as it is today. The proposed building is sleek and very attractive with a huge public walk area. The only question I have is it seems that most of the buildings that have recently been built next to the Chicago River have this blue reflective glass look. Would this building even look more elegant and standout more if it had a stone exterior or something a little different than the blue refective glass. Either way it is impressive just was wondering if anyone else thought the same.

Bank of America to move to Wacker Drive office project from Crains

Quote:
The bank is in talks to lease about 500,000 square feet in the proposed 1.35 million square-foot high-rise at 110 N. Wacker Drive, according to people familiar with the lender's plans. Bank of America recently decided to commit to the project, one of three buildings on its short list for a new Chicago office, the people said.

The lease, one of the biggest in downtown Chicago in recent years, is believed to be large enough for the project's developers, Chicago-based Riverside Investment & Development and Howard Hughes, a Dallas-based investment firm, to begin construction.
