Proposed property at corner of Adams and Halsted

A spirited—and sometimes heated—discussion took place tonight at a community meeting hosted by Alderman Walter Burnett, Jr. The topic was the proposed development at 765 W. Adams Street.
The location, currently a parking lot, is directly across Halsted from Greek Islands. If approved, the $100 million development will include a retail space at ground level, several levels of parking and 351 rental apartments.
And, by the way, the building will be 33 stories tall
. The developer, White Oak Realty, and architect, FitzGerald & Associates, were quick to point out that at a height of 355 feet
, the 765 W. Adams property would be 95 feet shorter than Skybridge.
I hope Ald. Burnett ignores the ~30 NIMBYs complaining about the height. I honestly don't even understand who would lose their views because of this development.
In other news, the owner of the Crowne Plaza is facing possible foreclosure
, so that might have something to do with the lack of news regarding One South Halsted.
