Can someone please explain why the Nobu has "that line/break" underneath the top floor? What purpose does it serve?

Copying the old, basic crown industrial design of buildings in the neighborhood, I suppose...

Now THIS is excellent news! That huge undeveloped lot needs to get something on it ASAP! I'm sure it's going to be a nightmare with the New York Condos tower filing probably half a dozen lawsuits over losing views, but screw those NIMBY jerks.

Cappleman seems to be pretty pro-development overall, so I'm fairly positive that this project will come to fruition, though perhaps a bit different than the proposal as seen in the Curbed article.

^ There is a legitimate lawsuit that can be filed in this case, though. A tower there will make it difficult for firefighters to access their building.

Oh wait, somebody already tried and failed that one. Time to come up with a new excuse.....

The New York building was originally developed as a two tower design. . . only one was built. . . there has been other proposals for that site since then as well. . . I wouldn't anticipate any issues unless they've down-zoned the property. . .

19 stories? Why shouldn't this location be able to sustain a true skyscraper?

353 W Grand has a big boy crane on site. Looking sharp in the sunset

Likely ready for its own thread now?

Tenants? We don't need no stinking tenants...

Looking to cash in on the area’s unprecedented development boom, Chicago-based Mark Goodman & Associates and newly announced New York-based partner Tishman Speyer plan to break ground on the structure at 310 N. Sangamon Street ahead of signing a major office tenant. Known as building on “spec,” the practice carries an added degree of risk—especially with no shortage of competitors in the works.
Also nice to see regarding this proj

The upcoming structure will also feature numerous green and energy-saving features in hopes of becoming the largest office building in the United States to comply with the rigorous Passive House standard.

I just sent him a message voicing support for this project and the Optima project even though it's just across the street in Tunney's ward.

Basically said, neighbors are good. Neighbors sit in bar stools and at restaurant tables when I'm not there. Neighbors are the insurance policy I have to keep my favorite establishments open when I'm not there.

I'm a NIMBY. "Neighbors in My Bar, Yo"

It COULD, Freefall, but building a tower literally blocking every view from the NY Condominium Tower will likely incite multitudes of (likely frivolous) lawsuits that will certainly slow everything down to a halt for several years. Building something shorter is likely a maneuver to stem those legal actions before they even start.

I could say something (many things) about the already-insane traffic and severe parking issues along Inner LSD and Lakeview East in general east of Broadway, but I won't in this situation.

Honestly, I just want to see something built on this huge piece of undeveloped property in a prime location. I think a proposal in this size/height range is a reasonable compromise, overall.

I would think both projects are in Cappleman's ward, especially given that I was in his ward and lived essentially right behind the Jewel Osco at Brompton and Pine Grove.

I remember thinking I was in Tunney's ward, but his office confirmed I was, in fact, in Cappleman's.
