Not sure if this was posted here, but an article a few months ago from Crains about this development, with a noteworthy portion I quoted:

Quote:
QUICK CONSTRUCTION POSSIBLE

Because the foundation already was poured for the new building years ago when a second office tower was planned, the new tower can be built in as little as 20 months, giving Mizrachi's plan an advantage over some competitors, Gunderson said. Work could begin with as little as 200,000 square feet of office space leased in advance, he said.

A number of four-star hotels have already expressed interest,” Gunderson said. “The important piece is finding the office tenant.”

Office rents are expected to be slightly below those in the Hines and O'Donnell towers under way, but the building will feature high-end finishes such as a spa, a public garden inspired by the Palace of Versailles, a Lasvit lighting installation and outdoor terraces, according to the developer and J.F. McKinney. The building will include a rooftop bar and restaurant, a ground-floor restaurant and another restaurant within the hotel space.

If they are already getting started, they must have signed a lease with somebody substation (office-wise)

This was posted in the Boom Rundown, so it might as well go here as well.

^So 590 has a outdoor rooftop bar about 450 feet up, give or take a few. That will be the highest such establishment in the city upon completion. Awesome!

It will also apparently have a cantilevered infinity pool, something which I thought was nearly impossible to pull off under Chicago code.

Any ideas why the pool deck would be in the northside setback (afternoon shade by the building tower) and the rooftop bar and restaurant in the southside setback (facing mainly west - away from Downtown)?

It looked to me like they had moved the stuff that was there a bit and started adding more, but I am probably wrong.

It seems site prep has begun at 590 W Madison in order to secure zoning changes. The city signed off on zoning changes as long as construction started by Sept 16th. According to ChiArch.

Anyone know more about this. Is this a done deal or just beginning site prep in anticipation of a tennant or hotel?

exciting, I wonder if they have landed an office tenant, Its nice to see the west loop continue to spread west. It seems during the last cycle there were so many proposed office towers that never got built.

They have excavated the entire plaza side of the site. I wonder how quickly they will start excavating the foundation. I think this one will count as U/C as soon as that begins.

Here's a pic from today:

There were machines on-site this morning tearing up more pavement and pushing debris around.
