In general, I agree with you. However, one of the hallmarks of Trump Tower is that it is contextual. It's setbacks were set at the heights of its iconic neighbors, the Wrigley and IBM towers. I really do hope that Renelle is exactly at the same height as the first setback just to further emphasize that contextual design element.

Request to Update Page 1

Hi Mods, I went through the buildings on Page 1 and noticed a few changes are in order. There's a bunch of stuff going on!

I think the following might be finished, no longer under construction:
• 215 W Lake, AKA Linea
• 750 N Hudson
• 226-228 E Ontario, AKA Hotel EMC2
• Niche 905 (905 N Orleans)

Move from Site Prep/Demo to Under Construction:
• 181 Huron/Marlowe

Move from Proposed to Under Construction:
• 237 East Ontario
• Nobu Hotel (or is this just site prep?)

Move from Proposed to Site Prep/Demo:
• Atrium Village Phase 2
• Hoxton Hotel
• 210 N Carpenter

Add to Proposed:
• LSE Site I
• LSE Site J/K
• LSE Site L

Also, you should consider updating the rendering of 201 N Columbus and change the name to 195 N Columbus.

Did I miss anything else?

I think it will illuminate nicely. I have no proof that's it's a manufactured material, but given that it looks like it's no more than 1 1/2 inches thick I don't think it could possibly be natural and have any hope at all of surviving the climate. Seeing as I can see it from my living room, I'm looking forward to it being finished enough to see the illumination at night.

I agree with this. Renelle might not be much in terms of eye popping architecture, but if it's as tall as Trump's first setback, then it will be a subtle piece of quality urban design.

Not yet. They got the demo permits a few weeks back which happens to be phase 2 site. Not sure when they'd stay phase 2 after demo is complete

Damn, they only ever listen when Spyguy posts it. LOL, glad he/she has more pics than I did though. Amazing how much this area is changing and how fast.

^^^ Awesome, five cranes hiding in that first shot. All soon to be much more prominent. Several more hiding behind the streetwall.

The view down field drive is also getting insane, this is going to be another JHC when approaching from the North on LSD situation when it's all done. Absolutely massive with OBP poking out from behind it like 900 N or Water Tower Place.

Redeveloping Newspaper Headquarters


The Chicago Tribune
The Chicago Tribune site at 700 West Chicago Avenue in the River West area of the city totals more than seven acres of developable riverfront land across from the newspaper group’s Freedom Center printing and distribution facility. Mixed-use development has been on the rise in Chicago, as has demand for creative and tech space in the city center. Long-range development plans are pushing the city’s growth beyond the traditional Loop core, outward to urban microdistricts, including the River West area, where larger floor plates are possible.

Tribune Media, the owner of the Chicago Tribune site, is trying to generate revenue from the company’s vast real estate holdings. The redevelopment of the 700 West Chicago site is a key component of this goal. Tribune Media will partner with Chicago-based Riverside Investment & Development, which will serve as the master developer for a phased mixed-use project that will involve the redevelopment of the 115,000-square-foot building that sits on the site. The first phase is expected to include 435,000 square feet of office space. Subsequent phases will incorporate multifamily residences, public space and, potentially, a hospitality offering.

Pending approvals, the first phase will likely feature a mid-rise office tower that will include outdoor spaces in the form of rooftop and other decks with green features. The development will also include an open market area and public green spaces. Plans for the project are ongoing.
