How fortunate are we to have such a great bookend to Grant Park? Looking forward to watching it rise and fingers-crossed for the taller twin. Thanks for the pic updates.

^^^I really hope we get another tower instead of town homes just south of One museum park west. I know it will be hidden unless they go taller. but just seems like to prime of a spot to build lowrises.

Referring to La Baron's first three photo's. Cool shot's by the way.

The townhouses are because Central Station is out of units. They've built (or requested) all the PD allows.

^ I personally hope they can either 1) go back and amend the PD with added units, or 2) lower density in the final Grant Park fronting tower - likely by having it go all or mostly condo, to be able to build a tower there. I'd actually prefer 1 because I believe the building directly at the corner of Michigan and Roosevelt is very appropriate for a very dense building with at least a good proportion of rental units.

There is something that just doesn't feel right about townhomes directly backing the tall south Grant Park wall......at the very least I feel should be a mid-rise if not something 20-25 stories......

There's a 14 story building directly south of One Grant park and a highrise just to the southwest of that. Granted, the 14 story building looks like townhomes with garden units (WTF 1990's/early 2000's???).

^ Yes, so now imagine that, but only with the first 3-4 stories..........would be just very awkward imo......
