Cool looking building. I hope it's mostly built before the next market crash...

Just because of the height or who's behind it?

I think something will get built on the site but yea maybe there will be a major height cut, I'm braced for that honestly.

It's pretty much our only hope of seeing another Sears sized building anytime soon. I'm hoping that will at least happen in our lifetimes (and I'm not even 30 yet)

yeah I think they grabbed the tower for the property and just threw up something audacious for visibility and they'll cycle it way down. That part of michigan could use a newer hotel though.

the height attempt overall is hitting when the market nationally and locally is probably poised to go down and not up. maybe if it were a year closer in the planning it would have a chance

Quite possible, although in the right market it could be worth their while to max out the square footage you'd think.

It'd be nice if something 300 meters goes here, I'll keep my expectations only a little high and reasonable.

This thing is too beautiful and too perfect, it needs to be built yesterday.

Ugh, don't rub it in.

It seems like the only chance left for a Chicago supertall (other than Vista) in the near future. (Assuming 400LSD gets downsized without the hotel)

Unless of course something we don't know of pops up.

I'd imagine that the hotel would downsize the smaller tower for Related on 400 LSD, and OCS could still end up a supertall in the end. I'm hopeful. Sad about WPS big time though

Has this (specifically the tower, not the renovation of the existing buildings) been approved by the Planning Commission?

Nosir, it hasn't even filed its PD yet. (Though in the 42nd that typically doesn't happen until after Reilly is satisfied/greased up.)

Where did you hear that? This alone seems like a bad omen that they didn't follow through submitting in September, which if I'm not mistaken was stated way back.

Also Reilly in the picture... there's that

It would be interesting if they did make it shorter because why hire AS+GG if you're in the end just gonna trim it down?

I guess its all part of the business though

It is bizarre. I'm not sure why they would want everyone think they're building a 400+ meter building, pay money for the design (I assume they did?) and then back out.

Perhaps they didn't get the positive public feedback on their design they hoped for?

Hm, could be. Although I'm not sure what they found wrong with it.

If you go back to the beginning of the thread for this project you can see a mixed bag of opinions. My core personal issue is that if it is going to pair with the Tribune Tower then it should do a better job with a more traditional stylistic approach. Others on this board claim it does pair with the Tribune Tower and other surrounding towers in more subtle modern ways, though I'm skeptical that these claims are true. Also the building has a general semblance to a lot of the tall buildings that have gone up in China in recent years. New York has several supertalls that don't look like Chinese buildings and I'd prefer we'd do the same.

To each their own but personally I like (or at least don't mind) the mix of new and old. Would you prefer an art deco knock off like One Bennet Park? I'm not sure how much I like the buildings that try to be 1930's.

It does look a bit Chinese (like KK tower in Shenzhen) but I don't think that's a bad thing. I generally like Chinese buildings (although some are tacky). Some of NYC's towers like the WTC and Hudson Yards also look a bit Asian to me.
