^^^ i am guessing that will come down completely...and the facade will be pasted onto the new structure. no way that can take the weight of what's going above without new footers.

Don't mean to make this about politics but I was wondering what your guys thoughts on how this whole mayor scandal may potentially effect and influence this current resurgence in construction here in Chicago?

The only projects of significance in next week's Plan Commission seems to be the Mega Mall redevelopment (220 units, 98 ft max height), new office building in the Kinzie corridor (the one Spyguy posted, 134 ft, 149 mechanical height), and the highrise planned for Chicago and Wells (57 units, +300 ft). All other projects have either been on the commission's before (like the fugly North & Clark project) or are small developments.

I wouldn't say that - the mayor is involved (but so are many other people) with economic development, which gets jobs here/expands jobs and has an impact on new development, or can.

That's not really true. New development is in part a sign of confidence in the economic / political direction and stability of a city. The Mayor resigning would probably cause a few investors to be more cautious for a short time. Also a part of the job of a Mayor is to help attract new business and investment to a city which usually requires cultivating relationships and connections over time. If the Mayor resigns certainly any deals he might be working on would be in jeopardy. Finally there is probably something to be said for Rahms resume, political connections, and time in politics. For example if a company is considering adding offices to lets say LA or Chicago I'm betting on a former White House Chief of Staff to make that deal over the Mayor of LA who was formerly a college professor of International Affairs.

This is more of what my question pertained to if investor rather out be national or international may see Chicago after all this and be a little hesitant to invest. Rahm knows and for its worth seems to be doing his part in attracting corporates to Chicago lately.

in some ways corruption improves the development landscape in a hot market

not that there's always corruption, but it's two different tracks. Look at cities in China or Mumbai etc

so far none of this is making chicago less attractive to investors. Unless people start getting shot regularly in the wrong places

Yes, this is exciting. I look forward to seeing this go up on my daily commute.

Blackhawks training center is a steaming pile. Ogden has so much potential to be a great street and everyone insists on treating it like a suburban auto sewer. Especially since this particular site is right on the doorstep of a Blue Line station.

I'm hoping the Rush expansion has a setback off Damen so the sidewalk can be widened. If the city keeps on insisting that the UC doesn't need a new Pink Line station, they should put their money where their mouth is and improve the pedestrian connections to existing transit.

That's the Village Theatre building. Ugh. Next door they are going to tear down Elly's Pancake House for the new high rise, which is fine but I wish they would save the Village Theatre building.
