Uncontrolled development is what happens with suburban sprawl. There's been too much nipple twisting as it is.

So.......Carpe Diem it is, then?


Actually, (I could always be wrong, but....) I wouldn't worry too much if I were you.....I don't think the mayor is in a political muscle-flexing mood much these days, and not looking for opportunities to anger and alienate, and to cause distrust in additional constituencies (to the extent that there still are some out there to check off the list!)......

Amendment to Michigan Avenue district design guidelines, I assume in response to this development and Essex. See page 35 (.pdf page 43):

http://www.cityofchicago.org/content...aft_Agenda.pdf

Quote:
Eighth to Eleventh Street
Most of the buildable sites located in the District are located at the south boundary, from Eighth to
Eleventh Street, with less than 50% of the streetwall frontage contributing to the historic district. These
facts, coupled with the existing new high-rise construction around these two blocks supports new
construction that may bridge the height differences between the existing historic buildings in the core of
the district and the new construction south of Eleventh Street at the district boundary. Heights of new
construction in this section of the district can fall between 400 – 900 feet.

Should applicants choose to exceed the existing district heights from Eighth to Eleventh Street, they
should be advised that the design for a tall building should still be compatible with the historic characteristics
of the district, and respect the existing tower massing, etc. seen within the district as described by these
guidelines.

Well that settles the argument of building height on Michigan Ave. Great find Spyguy!

That's surprisingly easy to work with. Great to know that code won't force crappy pomo style on a developer that can't/doesn't want to pay to do it right.

Guess what South Loop neighbor is against this proposal???

It seems like they want a gradual rise from 8th to 11th.

They keep stating "guidelines".

APPROVED

As I mentioned in the boom rundown, this project should be coming before the plan commission in April.

Also, I believe there will be another community meeting regarding this project on Monday, February 29th, held at the Hotel Blake at 6:00PM.

^^ ^ Yes - many thanks! This is an important one.....one to 'stretch' to get to.....a lot of neighbors - presumably including our own esteemed Mr Downtown - will still come down on the unmistakably wrong side of this proposal and come out vehemently opposed to the new downsized design......let's send 'em packing, boys!

First Meeting Report

Helmut in da Houze!

Why is Ken Dunkin here?? Gotta be something happening behind the scenes here - this isn't Chicago for nuthin'....

Add: Blair Kamin makes an appearance....


My initial take: This new design is definitely a move in the right direction.......this is clearly a refinement......good stuff so far - I like what I see....very nice elegantly subtle complexity and fluidity to its shape.....nice touch of structural espresso on to boot......

Floor plate increases in size a bit (in addition to changing shape) as tower rises....
