Wow they must have added several stories since last fall. I have a floor-to-floor of 13'-3", which means an additional four floors have been added since the previous height figure.

Previous floor count was 49, now it is 53.

Cool!

What about the floor count? Is 53 correct?

That's what they stated.


Here are a few notes from tonights meeting...


53 stories and 720' to the top floor.

DC-16 (downtown core) zoning

Rich Klawiter (lawyer) from DLA Piper

Developed or redevelopers 13.5 million square feet of space here in Chicago

the block is about 380' in length

190 parking spaces

origami like

Retail square footage is up to 14,000 sq ft
LEED Silver (possible higher)

One way entrance off Washington and exit onto Randolph

25,000 sq ft skygarden

Lobby will be about 54' tall

The base angles inward from the Randolph alley southeast towards Franklin

multiple public plazas of about 19,000 SF

751' 6" to the top of the structure

Site area is 63,382
Base FAR is 16
Plaza bonus is 5.07
Total allowable FAR - 21.07
Plaza Area - 20,703 SF
Total allowable floor area - 1,377,360 SF
Timeline - Filing in spring/summer and approval in the fall and they want to begin construction in 2016 and be completed in 2018

Haven't eliminated the possibility of going speck, but are talking with possible tenants

The current surface lot has about 290 parking spaces

Nice!

3 well designed ~750 foot buildings rising near each other is nothing to complain about. Once the other Wolf Point towers go up (hopefully with a height increase) this area of the river is going to be a straight up canyon!

^Yeah, you bring up a good point. With these towers in place, it will be hard to sell a less-than-supertall project on Wolf Point. The skyline itself will impose it. It must needs be done!

Thanks for attending and reporting back, BVictor. Were there any new renderings at the presentation?

has the overall design scheme changed in any substantive way, or is it more or less what we've seen before, just a bit taller?

Chi Arch Blog has released what appear to be new-ish renderings, but (per usual), they're a bit blurry.

It will. And developers who built the new'ish North/South Wacker Drive +600 footers over the last 15 years will feel and look hemmed in from most vantage points in the next 5-10 years.

I think of this building as having a similar architectural style as Aqua. Neither design commits to a sculptural form that would require completely abandoning the modernist box. Both are minimalist in their sculptural exploration using a singular theme over the entire facade. I hope we see a few more designs along these lines.

what? the 600 footers along N/S wacker that have been built in the past 15 years that nomar was referencing are all office towers. nary an apartment to be found in any of them.

Which is a damn shame I say. I'd love to see more residential on N/S Wacker as I think there's a lot of desire to live on the river. The General Growth site could be an amazing opportunity for high density residential, then bring the riverwalk a little more south, wooowee.

^Funny you say that- Pearl Tavern, an excellent new restaurant at Lake and Wacker, has plans to develop their own "riverwalk." Essentially, it would be a glorified patio along the river, which is supposed to someday include boat docking with drive-in service. I'm not certain it will be ready for business this year, but it's currently a spectacular spot to catch all this action.

Then you'd just have more NIMBYs complaining that the new buildings are stealing their views, too much noise, traffic, crowding, etc; And voting in alderman to squash them.
Chicago has plenty of land, no need to force residential into the commercial core. If it comes so be it, but no need to ask for it when we know what comes with it.
