I really like the new hotel's design, but hate the fact they are demolishing the Day School. I'll echo the previous comments on why can't they keep and integrate the existing buildings on the site with the tower behind? There's no scarcity of land here.

Great to see confirmation on the Rubenstein re-design.

Developer unveils plan for 185-room hotel near Obama library
Alby Gallun - May 11, 2017
After visiting the future Obama Presidential Center in Woodlawn, out-of-towners won't have to walk far to find a place to sleep, if a New York developer gets its way.

They'll be able to stay at the Study at University of Chicago, a 185-room hotel a couple blocks west of the planned Obama library. Developer Hospitality 3 presented its plans for the 15-story hotel last night at meeting in Hyde Park hosted by the University of Chicago.

The New York-based firm would build the hotel at the southwest corner of Dorchester Avenue and 60th street, on the former site of the Hyde Park Day School, according to slides from the meeting.

Also chuckled at this typo:
Quote:
The hotel is one of several new or proposed developments in the Hyde Park area, including new apartment buildings,​ stores and hotels. Two out-of-town developers recently broke ground on a 90-story hotel at Dorchester and 53rd Street that's slated to open next spring.
Would certainly change the Hyde Park skyline

NIMBY reaction to 90-story building: "OMG, but what about the children?"

NIMBY reaction to 9-story building: "OMG, but what about the children?"

^Looks like they may have mixed some 1960s Soviet in the Petri dish and botched the cloning. So bad. (Sorry for o/t)

Yeah, I love hanging out in the lobby of the older hotel building, but I can't say that condo tower is anything special.

Woof

I saw the original rendering, but damn that turned out even worse than the rendering.

It's really amazing to me how many people actually believe that land that has no structures on it is just for the taking as if nobody owns it. You do realize that these tracts of land are usually owned by private entity, right? Your assessment of being able to "easily" take a piece of land is full of ignorance. Just because they have land without a building on it doesn't mean theyre going to automatically sell to the first person who expresses interest in buying. The same business rules apply to them on when to sell as anything else.

Geez dude, the vacant land I'm referring to is part of the same parcel as the old school building. As you can see if you bothered to look at this before calling someone 'full of ignorance', they're already building on the empty land just to the south of it.

Any chance that UC trama center will help reduce the murder rate? Not the number of shootings, but the number of deaths?

Probably...Right now GSW's either go to Stroger or Christ in Oak Lawn from the south side. Giving them another location basically right between can only help.

I have heard, on a podcast or something, that one of the reasons our murder rate is lower than in 80's and 90's has mostly to do with the abilities and equipment that paramedics have with them when they respond. I think the topic was specifically about cutting funds for fire paramedics, so they did not get into the role the hospitals play. Probably a large one as well.

So basically, maybe.
