I know some out there are predicting about 4 office towers out of this cycle.

^ I'm at - and have been for quite some time - 4-6 large new office towers this cycle.....only talking about traditional 750k+ sq ft, 30+ stories new construction in the actual CBD.....

I'm very excited for 130 N. Franklin as well......another little tight mini-cluster of new ones with this and 151 Franklin......particularly looking forward to getting large new office towers from a couple very talented Chicago architects, for each of which this will be their first here (K+S, Ronan).........

Finally, looks like this one will have great views to the West from upper floors.....

Something about this seems wrong. It's too squat. It appears someone made the model flush on the lot along Washington which is not quite right from the renders.

This is definitely my favorite design of the current cycle of proposed / UC buildings. Hopefully in the forthcoming meeting about the project we get some info about a start date and tenant. With all the current project proposals and construction the area around the river confluence is going to go from a no mans land of railroad tracks and parking lots to a vibrant cityscape pretty quick. Let's hope this one and 151 n franklin get off the ground.

I think the next likely construction is 590 W. Madison, past this though I think most other proposals are pretty stale unless Chicago economy continues to improve, hopefully we will see the south and east wolf point towers comeup too....

You are right. I made a quick revision. Still not incredibly accurate, much too thick, but you get the idea.

Are you just referring to office towers? If not, what about 451 East Grand and The Chicago? I thought that was likely to start construction this year.

It seems Chicago is starting to pick up again. Especially once the other Wolf Point Towers, Spire site and/if Wanda Vista start going up, hopefully by next year?

Still going to make a heck of an impact, can't wait to see it being built. Thanks for making the correction.

That'd be nice.

With 2 or three extra floors it'll probably end up ~730 or so, esentially creating a plateau with the two rising across from Wold Point. While I like all of these buildings it would be nice if there were a little variation. Beggars can't be choosers though, I'm happy Chicago is getting back into the high rise game

^It's so true. This a phenomenal cluster of towers regardless. And I'd be happy with the 696. But it's so much fun to speculate! They could always surprise us with a 100 foot rooftop atrium.

If I'm not mistaken 696' is the figure from the original 48 or 49 story proposal. Apparently now it has 51 floors so it should be in the 700's.

Just carrying over some reports from the highrise thread:

Folks are reporting over there that (I believe there are documents outlining) we could be looking at 699' to the top of the parapet and 709' (if these don't conflict in some minor way) to the top of the elevator penthouse......so a bit taller than most of the other newer Wacker driver office towers (think 155 N, 1 N, 71 S, 111 S, etc).......I'll take it.....

Just spoke to one of the lawyers on the project and he stated that the building would be 53 stories and 720'.

Will report more back later.
