But still, hopefully the likes of Amazon and others occupy these PD's or just supplement demand so we can see downtown continue to get built up this boom and next rather than substituted with distant sites like Reese.
Way less vertical.

I imagine that's what they said about South Loop before Central Station. South Loop is getting built out, at some point the demand will jump over I-55. There's still room to grow on Wabash and State, but pretty much everything east of Michigan is done. That means lake views will be much harder to come by.

Draper and Kramer now has exclusive control over a mile of lakefront land from 26th to 35th, and they're already generating income through Lake Meadows and Prairie Shores. Eventually they will make a killing.

The Michael Reese site is the best site for Amazon. It'll spur new development, and the renderings look gorgeous.

The best site for Amazon is undoubtedly The Post Office, however the site that would most benefit the city is probably Michael Reese. I say that because The Post Office is already a done-deal whereas Michael Reese, and the other North Branch sites, are in need of anchor tenets in order to get started, especially with the type of scale being proposed.

^ That's the genius of the city's approach. Instead of pushing one site that satisfies Chicago's goals, they're serving up a whole menu of sites that offer different advantages (lake views, transit access, quick timeline, customization/build-to-suit, etc). All sites on offer benefit equally from the deep talent pool and (generally) strong infrastructure in Chicago.

I have no doubt that the Post Office will attract enough businesses on its own. It doesn't need help. Using Amazon to spur other developments, especially on the south side would be amazing. I actually think the proposal for the Reese site is better for Amazon. It seems more future proof just cause it's so clean slate.

As long as Amazon chooses a site in Chicago, I don't really care.

Materials will make or break that one. And I see they omitted the gaggle of trucks parked on that small triangle lot.
Maybe once this, 1001 W. Chicago, 716 N. Aberdeen (and maybe the CVS, US Bank lot) are done, they'll make that triangle a little park. Too small to build on, just plant some trees.

I could see Philly, but not Baltimore.

By the way, this is so dumb. Not to be biased, but D- on talent? D- on location? LOL.... they really don't know much of anything do they? Talent is more in the B+ and up range - location probably anywhere from B+ to C depending on how you look at it. So dumb, but pretty indicative of how most people think about tech, but they have seriously no idea.
