I'm not agreeing with the decision at all, just anticipating that outcome

Wells is going to become a very important artery connecting a lot of these new South Loop developments in the near future. It would be wise to develop it in a way that is engaging to pedestrians, so that it doesn't become an auto oriented throughway.

Hopefully the Riverline development doesn't repeat the mistakes of the past by focusing in on itself and putting up a bland, dead facade to its surroundings *cough Dearborn Park *cough*

^ Nice vantage point.

Looks like this one is finally about to move at a faster clip, not that they are on to the tower floorplates.....

Taken about an hour ago on my phone:



It looks like they're finishing up the first non-podium floor, so I expect things will start moving much faster in the next week or two.

Has anyone heard anything about them starting the other components of Phase 1 soon – the condo tower and river walk/park?

Architect said Wednesday that, yes, they were finishing the last plinth floor. I expect the residential floors to rise about one a week. First occupancy is set for April 2018, and parts of the riverwalk will open shortly thereafter.

He said they were in permitting now for the next building, a condo tower south of River City, but I didn't clarify exactly which sub-parcel.

^ In permitting for a condo tower they haven't started sales on?

Glad they are pretty confident!

I don't recall ever seeing this rendering. - Via Curbed, which has a good rundown today of Chicago's current mega developments.

That would put it at the corner of Wells and Taylor?
