I'd really like to see them preserve and restore the older 4 story building with the oriels while going a little taller on the open lot behind. I know its really beat up, but it would be nice to save it, if at all possible.

Construction fencing up at the 215 W Hubbard office/residential combo project (only around the office portion so far).

Regarding 710 W. Grand, what's the name of that little neighborhood? It's kind of isolated by the tracks and Kennedy. Is it River West?

It used to be called the Near Northwest Side. I thought it was now in River West, but it seems to be in the Fulton River District (not to be confused with Fulton-Randolph Market, the one that received landmark a short while ago). It's bounded by Ohio to the north, the expressway to the west, the river to the east, and the railroad tracks that also make up the Near West Side's borders to the south. Google Maps has a nice overlay of its boundaries.

I guess I should have emphasized that "used to" meant several decades ago. Strangely though, the city mentioned it as the Near Northwest Side in their 2002 plan for the area.

I've lived in River North for 11 years and have always called that area River West.

For me, anything south of the Metra tracks just north of Kinzie is Fulton River, anything north of the Metra tracks is River West. That's just me, not any even quasi-authoritative source, but I will continue to call it River West until I die because I'm stubborn.

Munchymunch, have you been Spyguy all along?

Wow. 215 Lake sure is bright. I recall people saying the tower was 36 stories tall. The Printer's Row tower looks to be 24 stories from my count. The Fifth Third Bank provides a great indication for where the Printer's Row tower is. It would be located at the southwest corner of Clark and Harrison, which currently is a parking garage. https://www.google.com/maps/@41.8745...7i13312!8i6656

Nice splash of color! I really like the Printers Row project. i think 215 Lake will look less cartooney completed. Maybe something like JeffJack
