Great thinking. Yes I know the idea is to have a view over the water, but that’s why you put the swimming pool on the roof.
Literally the first thing I thought when I saw the rendering... I don' t think that will be a pleasant space to relax.

I have mixed feelings about this project. On one hand, it will be nice to complete Lakeshore East for once and all. On the other hand, everything about this project seems awkward to me. I'd rather have one large building than three buildings and more green space and a better connection to the lakefront.

Better than 4 buildings which was the original plan.

. . . so not to confuse anyone, this appears to be simply a zoning change notification and not a firm height declaration. . . be that as it may it seems to me to be the most recent notable height figure so I've changed that in the title of the thread. . . I doubt it will be exactly 950' as-built (and who knows where that's measured from), but until we see elevation drawings from the architect we'll leave it as such. . .

. . . also I haven't really been following the details of the two smaller buildings, but someone else can comment if that's changed in any significant way. . . not sure I remember building J breaking 500" but, as I said, I haven't followed those details. . .

This one is probably closer to ~970' if you scale it to the top.

^^ I'm of the opinion that by the time they finally get to constructing this building, it will probably be much taller even than this. I think this won't be the first height change we see in this building.

LSE is a PD with a locked-in number of total floors across the whole site, I believe

Are you sure about this? Didn't they get rid of a tower, going from I, J, K, L to just I, J, KL? I thought that since they got rid of a tower, they could transfer the zoning to other towers, notably I. Am I right in this?
