Moreover, the 'safe' move is to make a high amenity building in River North, charge $2000/mo for 625sqft and call it a day. If the market changes too drastically you can always convert to condos (like Grand Plaza did for the smaller tower).

That building has actually been climbing quickly now that they have a crew. Took them months to do all the ground level shit, but it's climbed up to like 10 floors for the core since the end of summer so I'd take the bet in my sleep.

Edit: nevermind, read that as OGP, not OBP. Yeah you might be right on that
