Yeah a call center would not be bad anyway, it's not like Chicago doesn't have a bunch of low skilled workers in poor neighborhoods that would love to make $15/hr just answering phones all day...

But tech companies don't do call centers, so I'll take 5000 Google jobs plz.

I think some people take "operations center" way too seriously. Google hardly has any call center jobs - they might actually be contracted work and possibly even off shore. Google is actively working with a handful of other companies anyway to get rid of call center reps and replace them with "AI"-driven bots anyway. Operations Center for Google could mean many things - network engineers, management, data center types of jobs, etc.

Expect semi educated to very educated people for what they want to open and at least decently to very well paying. This is not going to be 5000 people who have $15/hr jobs answering phones from outside clients all day. Though you know, those types of jobs wouldn't be bad to have in other parts of town. But you know, what doesn't make the news is the fact that companies like Peoples Gas Light and Coke are planning or even building service centers with hundreds of jobs in areas like South Lawndale (west of Pulaski and south of the tracks near 33rd st). There's another one from them with hundreds of jobs up in North Park at Pulaski & Peterson. I have these on my Zoning Application map (https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?m...860791323&z=17)

Nope, luckily. I think that usually any company that has to do with utilities or cable is the worst in regards to CSR. Hey, maybe they'll improve with new centers and training? hah okay probably not...

Just looked up Fifteen Fifty on the Park and I have to say... kind of disappointing for such a prominent sight :/

What do other people think about it, maybe I'm looking at it wrong, but I feel like it's a missed opportunity for something bold, not even necessarily that big, but bold for sure

My opinion is that while I wish it would be taller, it could be way worse. The height is *almost* high rise technically. Midrise is still nice at the 8 or 9 stories it is. I think it'll make a small impact for that corner. From the actual housing perspective, it makes sense to me. Expensive units overlooking Lincoln Park at a good location. It fits in with the area really. I think that if the gas station around the corner can sell and be redeveloped into something equally as tall or taller, then that little area will have a huge difference. Just in case you want to buy and redevelop

Oh wow, this is actually pretty amazing. Someone can propose an apartment building and get a guaranteed decision in 90 days from the city, all without having to deal with NIMBYs. Watch Lincoln Park suddenly get flooded with proposals if this goes into effect.
