One more tower on the empty lots nearby and they can change the name to Colorfront Center. "Cityfront Center" is so generic and ultimately is ending up only half its original size anyway because Columbus is effectively dividing the neighborhood.

It will be interesting to see whether the office market ever does expand materially into the 4 available large parcels between Illinois and the river, or whether it will grow as a residential, hotel, retail, and educational/institutional neighborhood.

Doubtful, North Michigan Avenue and East Loop are the slowest-growing segments of the downtown market. Maybe the new BRT will even things out a little bit, but it will have a dreadfully low capacity even if it is a smash hit with commuters.

^ With this BRT stuff, I wonder what the ridership will be like going the other way - from East to West, particularly given the tremendous growth in residential and hotels in the East Loop, LSE and Streeterville - people going to West Loop offices.....?? Perhaps not that much, but maybe.......

Are there any renderings of this project (with the new color scheme) viewed on the north side?

Yeah, this may be a significant ridership driver. I think it won't have a huge impact on development, though - people living in the downtown area already have a relatively short commute to work. Living in Streeterville and commuting to West Loop isn't very daunting, even if it is slow. At that distance, biking or walking makes a lot of sense in addition to bus. The BRT has a much bigger impact on suburban Metra riders, who (thus far) have hated to tack on a 20 minute bus ride to a 40-60 minute train ride, and this has driven office investment in West Loop locations, even west of the Kennedy which was unimaginable 15 years ago.

Building Height

The listed building height from Illinois street is 600.83 feet and a listed lobby is noted on Grand street. Because the Grand street lobby is +13.42 feet , the building height is listed as 600.83 -13.42= 587.41 or 587 feet. Since the stacking plan shows lobbies on both Grand and Illinois streets, shouldn't the building height be listed from the Illinois street lobby as 600.83 feet or 601 feet? Wasn't this the case with Aqua. It had entries on both Columbus and LSE park. Because of the LSE park entry, Aqua was listed by CTBUH as being 859 feet tall based on the LSE park level rather than the Columbus street data line.

Building permit has been delayed due to some design changes. It's expected any day. Look for things to ramp up in the next week or so.
