Most of the concerns that were listed had little to do with tower design, and the changes wouldn't need to affect those much, if at all, so I'd expect very similar designs

Water taxi could be a serious option to commute to Lincoln Yards, The 78 or the Old Post Office.

Unless it becomes like the nyc ferries that travel 29 mph and cost $2.75, the water taxi will not be that serious of a commuting option

Water taxi is free for many tenants - at 321 N Clark we get a free pass.

Does anybody know if these final developments to fill out Lake Shore East include improved pedestrian access to the lakeshore/Navy Pier?

I know I've tried to bring visiting friends through the area before (either stopping at Mariano's for a snack or wine, or showing them the nice park in the center of the development), but I'm always baffled at the poor connectivity to the lakefront path.

You'd think that this would be a priority for the city to push, similar to the Riverwalk connection as a part of the Vista Tower project

Welcome to the forum!

In short, the Site I and other proposals were rejected by the Alderman in 2017 over his objections to lakefront access. You can go to page 1 of this thread to judge for yourself. The new proposal should have a heavy emphasis on helping people get from LSE to the lake.


As for Navy Pier, the bike bridge connecting Olive Park and the south branch of the Chicago River should help somewhat.

Well thank you for you post and welcome the forum


You are welcome and a needed new foumer.



It has been like ten year before we got some new former from Chicagoland .









Just keep it us, that's all I ask.


I wish you the best of luck

Interesting. There appears to be no mention of a redesign of any of the towers, which is good since I like the current design for Site I. Three hundred more residential units, but coming at the expense of 300 hotel rooms. Probably preferable this way, as the hotel would be somewhat out of the way.

Hopefully Reilly likes the changes done to the parks, walkways and car/pedestrian circulation.

I thought it was 4 towers? That curbed article is confusing me with the title.

Three towers are on one parcel on the northeast corner of LSE and a parcel to the southwest will also host a tower.

And to make it more confusing, those 3 towers on the NE corner are on 4 parcels (I, J, K, L), where the original plan was to have 4 towers.

Meeting

I am at the meeting. No changes to tower design. Tower I hotel portion has been removed (but that was never a part of the original plan, simply the developer reserved the possibility of adding one based on market conditions). Park towards lakefront has been widened with more free space and less area dedicated to ramps. The alderman’s tone makes it sound that this will likely be approved.

According to Crain’s Business “Magellan and Lendlease had proposed a 300-room hotel and 300 condos in the 80-story building but have scrapped the hotel and now plan 600 condos. They plan to develop the other towers—a 50-story, 500-unit condo building and a 40-story, 600-unit apartment high-rise—in the first phase of the project, with the taller tower coming later.”
So Site I across from the spire site will be 80 stories with 600 condos and be built after the shorter apartment and condo towers.

Though I wasn't expecting it to bad on the no design change. While I think the site I building is above average I can't say it the design impresses me as a potential landmark building. It isn't the height that bothers me as much as the seemingly awkward placement of the balconies. The reverse taper on the east side of the building also comes off a bit awkward to me, maybe the execution will be more satisfying when seeing it three-dimensionally.
