Omg 200 N Mich. I love it! It's like an emerald in Sable's turban on the Colby's.


Just noticed the glass on LG, and unless it's a good angle, it looks like they got the good stuff.

You know, the look of 215 W Lake is a bit odd and not really to my taste, but I have to say I love the fact that the building is keeping it's footprint so slim. It's not often we see a mid-block residential tower without a much wider podium these days.

They both look pretty good and looks like the architect firm is roszak. The images are up on their site. That green and orange is a risk.... but if Jeff Jack is any indication of the firms use of color I have no doubt it will turn out to be quite beautiful.

Also I'm glad we have a few talented architects in town who aren't afraid to use some bold color. Namely JGMA, Roszak, and Hovey.

Roszak Printers Row Proposal

Whoa - this one is fantastic. For a reminder, this is the one that Mr Downtown recently said seemed to be at least stalled (if not maybe dead), as an agreement on purchase price for garage couldn't be made.......Mr D, or somebody, anybody, please tell me this deal is maybe still alive......please, even if just a little alive.......please - just give us a glimmer of hope.....please.....what a stellar design.......


Much as with Hovey, I really admire Roszak's bold use of color.....I mean, come'on - live a little, I say!


Muchymunch: Thanks for posting these renderings for both Roszak projects - fantastic work!

Notice those high rise building permits flowing a little better? He's back.....

Good news in that Asif Rahman has returned to the dept of buildings. Haven't seen anybody mention this yet here......this was revealed in a piece on Thursday by Tom Corfman in Crain's.

Hopefully he can mentor or bring in some other folks so that this dept's functioning reasonably isn't reliant on a single highly competent and talented individual......that's the most noteworthy and sad part of this whole saga....

That 215 W. Lake is a great splash of color, in an architecturally diverse area, I like it a lot

Great photos as always, George. Thanks!

Edit: 215 W. Lake and Printers Row tower added to pg. 1 rundown.

Printer's Row wins hands down over 215 W. Lake. Packer's colors in Chicago? Really? How about Blue and Orange?

Regardless, both buildings have great bases. 215 would get a minor ding for the podium, but gets away with it due to the L tracks. It won't really be seen.

215 needs another 30 stories or keep it a parking lot.

Those are not anywhere near packers colors at all...


as for the blue, too much blue in the skyline already

Reminds me of Renzo's handiwork in London, but a bit less so.

Clearly you don't root for the Green and Orange like a true fan!

I agree unless this building doesn't prevent a taller structure from being built on the NW corner of Franklin and Lake

I like the design but not entirely sure why the color scheme was chosen, I could understand if it was a building that was distinquishing itself from neighboring buildings, but the height of it currently is far too small to stand out to begin with.

Renzo used to partner with Richard Rogers, a London architect that loves to include color accents.

This is very referential to that.

Now that building I like a lot; it reminds me of the pedway bridge from Maggie Daley Park to the BCBS building (which I also like a lot).

Color is great. Where 215 W Lake loses me is the clash of it's colors, and the fact that they seem to be applied to tacked-on accents (as opposed to emphasized structural elements in the London building above).

The green highlights the horizontal and the orange the vertical... If this gets built I'll be interested to see if some color blending will happen where the orange and green meet from a distance. It could be a very cool effect.

I like the bright colors of 215 Lake. Since I first saw the Chicago skyline at the age of 4, I've always liked how colorful and geometrical the skyline is. It might have been the CNA building that was so striking against the blue skies and the harsh contrast of the Sears Tower and Hancock to the Aon and Smurfit Stone. Lately it's just been bluish, off blue, bluish green glass which on a cloudy day isn't so striking. It will be nice to see something pop-out in the forest of skyscrapers.

Another interesting feature is how the horizontal and vertical lines will pop. Instead of appearing as a solid volume, this will look more like a frame.
