Those early phase Central Station townhomes along Prairie are really starting to look silly. Is theere even the slightest chance they could get bought out in the future and replaced with highrises?

They are unlikely to disappear in our life times.

To be honest, I never minded these as much. Dearborn Park is a different story

There's been around 157 skyscrapers and high rises completed in Chicago between 2007 and 2018 (and a few in 2019) downtown area alone (counting a few in West Loop). To give you an idea of how many that is, that is more skyscrapers/high rises the following cities currently have that were completed at any point in history: Miami Beach, Las Vegas, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, San Diego, Ft. Lauderdale, Portland, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Winnipeg, etc. At some point this year, it will surpass Baltimore and maybe even Guadalajara.

Between 2009 and 2019, there's been 137 new skyscrapers/high rises completed anywhere in Chicago - which is more than Las Vegas has in the entire city. Of course, there should be numerous completed this year so that number will be over 150 easily by end of year.

Another west loop hotel tower

https://blockclubchicago.org/2019/04...and-carpenter/

Another hotel proposed for fulton market requires zoning change, though think its in walters ward so itll be good. Plus a six story office building.

Here's my post about it from April 11:

This is very close to Google along Fulton Market.

Link to the One Central analysis that the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce commissioned.

P. 31 shows the breakdown of the headline ~$120B of impact:
  • $75B from the new buildings and associated jobs
  • $32B from more visits to Museum Campus, McCormick, and downtown
  • $9B from new residential development and income in the south loop
  • $3.6B from new CTA fare revenue

Haven't gone into the detail enough to know how believable those numbers are.

However, it's worth flipping through the report regardless because it has a TON of data on downtown development generally. Population and income trends, vacant land absorption, hotel capacity, transit access, etc. etc. etc. Quite frankly I'm not sure why they gathered all of this data, because some of it doesn't seem to go into the impact assessment at all, but I'm glad they did.

Because when you got $60,000 to blow on a study, why not?

Imo, I kinda like the idea of only having townhomes along Prairie. They act as a great transition between the high-rises near the tracks and the Prairie Ave Historic District. I would hate to have highrises be right next to any of the historic homes.

Approved:

Commission OKs a 19-story office tower at 800 W. Fulton Market with first-floor retail and 32 parking spaces. The developer of the $95 million project will pay $3.96 million into the #ChicagoNOF system for that density. The project will result in about 1,800 permanent jobs.
