I’m also curious how the Harper court expansion will impact the neighborhood along with UofC expanding their undergrad population by around 2k. Although UofC claims they want students living on campus or in woodlawn.
I believe you are talking about 1644 E 53rd? It was recently purchased by Silliman group and I think they only plan to give the existing shopping center a face-lift and sidewalk improvements.

Yes that's the one! But that is unfortunate because that building is pretty busted and I don't know if a face lift will be enough...

That is slick. The only thing of course that would make it even better would be using curved glass for the radii, but that would probably be asking too much.

Apparently with the new TOD ordinance, almost all of Hyde Park and Woodlawn is TOD eligible.

Inclusion of bus routes greatly expands area under transit-oriented development rules

Yep, I think this is actually a significantly better design than Solstice

Love it! Hyde Park has come a long way compared to 10 years ago when the Hyde Park Progress blog was still running, calling out all of the NIMBYism.

So many projects are going up, so much more life and density. One of Chicago’s best neighborhoods, IMO, and one of the only truly integrated ones.

Those are some sexy as hell curves.

Always a pleasant surprise when a project ends up looking significantly better than the renders indicated. On a per case basis Hyde Park has had the best infill over the last 10 years I think it could be argued.

It would be hard to argue otherwise. You would need a rebuttal for this new one at Cornell, City Modern, UC dorms, Vue53, and Solstice, Even with it's VE scars. Perhaps the least best would be Harper Court which is still nicer than most similar sized developments around the city.

Around here it for sure is with the Gang love, but most people(albeit no more than a dozen) I've talked to find Solstice to be an eyesore from most angles (I disagree with this statement, but I can see how it'll take time for people to grow into and like it more, since it is quite cutting edge considering the neighborhood).

I must say I find Solstice very distasteful from every angle but from the south. Without the museum-facing facade in view, the south and east/west facades just make no sense (though they do look good along with it). I am all for the materiality - particularly the use of beige and gray, but it just ended up being poorly executed - sadly.
