completely agree. We can save those for the next boom.Wolf Point. Harrison & Dearborn. South of NBC Tower.
There's nothing bad about the parking lots there; it's just that they'd be wonderful building sites. Though Harrison/Dearborn would also make a wonderful European-style urban plaza, since it's properly fronted by buildings on all sides.
How could I forget about this??? I live next door to this waste of space!! The LAC is currently shut down and now Mars corp owns the land after they purchased Wrigley. My building management office gets weekly/monthly updates on this site and I will report if I hear anything.I would say the
1) Parking lot south across Union Station on Jackson/Canal
2) Lakeshore aethilic club and its lot just south of Nordstroms on Wasbash/Hubbard
I agree with the choice of the old Merc site, which is a huge site that includes the lot to the north of the Merc. This site is on the west side of Franklin, running from Washington to Randolph.I vote for the lot that was the old Chicago Merc. Just absolutely senseless they tore that building down. Huge, one block worth of empty lot, right in the middle of the finical district. It pisses me off every time I look at, especially when I remember how awesome the interior and exterior of that building was hno:
I forgot about those lots; that stretch of State and Dearborn is very disapointingOh, my vote for the number two worst surface lot is the entire block bounded by State, Chicago, Dearborn, and Superior.
There are several small buildings along Dearborn, but this block is otherwise barren. It is mostly owned by the Archdiocese.
