Cool CHICAGO | Tribune Tower Addition | 1,422 FT | 113 FLOORS











http://tribunetowerredevelopment.com

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

Developers plan city's second-tallest skyscraper next to new Tribune Tower condos
  • 1,422 feet
  • Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture
  • "Plans for the new tower, which could start construction in late 2019, call for a 200-room hotel, 439 rental apartments and 125 condominiums in its upper reaches."
  • "In the first phase, their plans call for 163 condominiums at Tribune Tower, which would retain its familiar name. The first units would be occupied in early 2020."

CHICAGO | Tribune Tower redevelopment | ~1,388 feet

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

Chicago Tribune | By Bill Ruthhart and Blair KaminContact Reporters
Chicago Tribune, January 24, 2018


Quote:
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.

They should call it the Barrack Obama Tower. It would be good hit for Trump's inflated ego.

Anyways, great news. Liking the super talls being revealed lately. Hope it accelerates!

Edit: I thought the trump tower was 1,388 feet tall.
To the tip it is or architectural its 1,389 ft. Occupied is somewhere around 1,100 ft.

If this new Tribune tower is to the roof, it will be the 2nd tallest disregarding the spire rules.

It says it'd be one foot shorter, so I'm sure that would actually garner a tweet about how he keeps winning.

Sweet!



Am I the only one who finds it odd that they wouldn't program some office space in that location? I know that the West Loop is the hot market for that generally due to the trains, but this is just over the river from the Loop, and they are eliminating existing space with the condo conversion. It could be an attractive location for boutique offices, given all the nearby high end residential.

Interesting that they're comparing to Trump Tower's spire height and not the roof line. To me that indicates that this building will also have a spire. Else a 1388 roof height would make it dominate every building but Sears, and I think they'd be making different comparisons.

So plan commission this summer, but renderings are usually released well before that. I wonder how long we have to wait?

The skyscraper would rise on the north side of what is now a parking lot behind Tribune Tower.
There's a map in the Tribune article. "Site A" looks to be only the northern third of the parking lot. Meaning this tower may not be any wider than One Bennett Park. It'll be very slender.

This is Adrian Smith and he likes spires, so those who have been itching for a building with one, lets wait for this rendering.

That makes sense.

A slender tower that isn't overbearing toward its famous neighbor is the only thing that's getting approved here, anyway.

And perhaps that partly answers my question re: offices, although boutique offices don't need enormous floorplates either.

^Remember, there's a protected view corridor from the east for Trib Tower, that's why this proposal is to the north of the site.

This will be amazing at that location if they do it.

Not really. Land values east of Michigan are quite high, and good companies are frugal. I see need for some office space like doctors, dentists, personal lawyers, accountants and such. But not corporate office space.

Smith + Gill… Wow, I can't wait to see some renderings. This could be something truly great.

If the tower is just that portion of the lot the Trib article highlights, doesn't the unit count seem rather low? Even if we are talking a large number of full floor ultra luxury units like Vista there is still like a 300+ unit swing there

Does the same developer own the southern half of the site?

Hedge funds, private equity, media firms, etc.

That's what I meant by boutique offices, and there is a market for super prime locations, for companies whose very picky and highly paid employees prefer them. That's why there is tons of office space in Mayfair or Park Avenue. It's a different niche, but it exists.
