Current building doesn't look old, either, although it could just be a new facade. Will it just be that double-wide lot?

The guys who built Maple & Ash (Pisor and Lasky) and then sold it bought the current building at 12 W Maple in mid 2017. Could be them..

One simple request:

No LaGrange.

It would also explain the lack of parking and the willingness to build on (formerly undesirable) LaSalle St.

Columbia just sold the Lakeside Press dorm containing 343 beds, to be deconverted into only 96 apartments. Those units probably to be replaced somewhere, unless Columbia's enrollment is dropping steeply.
The large building on the books for the Palmer Printing property on Clark will add about 300 student-style units. How many do we need?

I also note that that street has a ton of noise pollution from the Metra Trains that park there running their engines and beeping and clanking away. It really isn't a very desirable location for many reasons.

The parking lot on Clark/Harrison has many troubles. As a close enough resident we went through an objection to the addition of billboards that needed a variance. Part of the owner's rationale was that he needed the extra income to stay afloat, which defied logic. He'd just failed to seal the deal with the developer to buy it from him. Amazing.

I've never been sure who owns the area used for parking on the West side of LaSalle. Hunter parking operates the spaces under the stacks, I've always assumed under a contract with Metra, and I *think the street spaces may also be part of that, but I'm not 100% sure. I'd think that if they could be developed into something other that parking Metra (if they own it) could possibly earn more money for it. Actually, I'd go a bit further. Get rid of all that parking entirely, open it up and turn it into a market. When all the buildings come online I'd think the area could support it.

That's quite a bit taller than I was expecting if that rendering is scaled properly.

Especially considering that Viceroy is 17+ floors to the top of it's curtainwall. But luxury residential floors are likely much taller than a hotel. Viceroy has some tall lower floors, but it's typical floor to floor is 9'-8."

Then again, if this building's 13th floor is even with Viceroy's 18th floor (that's roughly 190') or nearly 16' floor to floor!

Also it's unclear from this rendering if this tower also takes out the 19th century row house next to 12 Maple? Do we know who owns that one?

I think it's 12th floor equivalent to the top of Viceroy in the rendering - 200 ft. Which means that if scaled correctly (I have my doubts, but who knows), then this thing would be 16.67 feet per floor and the total height of this building would be somewhere in the 350-370 foot range IF the scaling is correct.

I think part of it could be that they didn't quite accurately render viceroy either. They seem to have used a photo where the hotel was still under construction (hence the tower crane) and faked something in. Viceroy's geometry is not modeled accurately which leads me to believe the height could be in question too.

But if you look at the 7th floor terrace on the new tower, if that is a 42" tall glass guardrail, then the ceilings on that terrace must be 13-14'. Maybe we really are looking at something with 16' floor to floor.

Posted on Neighbors of West Loop FB page.

You can hear the whining in the post:

West Loop Community Organization is hosting a community meeting on Thursday, January 24 for a proposed 18-story building at 19 N. May, phase II of The Hayden (phase II is currently under construction at the corner of Aberdeen and Washington. The building at 19 N. May had previously been approved at 9-stories.

Is that so? I thought that was a CMK project, they aren't really in the student housing game. If they are building studio apartments they will still probably be larger and more expensive than true dorm-style housing.

Yes, a co-worker of mine lives on the block in a vintage building and I've heard her complaints about the noise. But much of the sound can be blocked out with a higher STC on the windows, at only a modest additional cost.

You have my vote... this would be very London-esque, like Borough Market. Too bad the 1980s era LaSalle St Station has zero character.

This rendering was done for P + W by a Chinese rendering company. If you'll notice, they drew the sun setting in the north

I'm only going on what I picked up from the Dearborn Express article - 30-some stories, 370ish units IIRC, mostly studio apartments suitable for student housing. This is what the article said:

CMK Development, 30 stories, 13-14 month completion, 369 units "75% of which will be student or convertible apartments". 317 feet tall.
