You're correct; I used residential height, rather than overall. Can it be changed?

not only that, it will be the tallest building west of the kennedy in the entire state of illinois.

you'd have to travel west to st. louis, des moines, or minneapolis to find a taller building.

Take that, Oak Brook. And Itasca, etc.

(Oakbrook Terrace Tower: 418ft. Long ago surpassed by Skybridge, but these days it's even more clear the burbs are fading.)

Well, The Park Tower condominiums at 5415 North Sheridan (513'), as well as being the tallest building as far North is actually further West than Halsted, but not West of the Kennedy.

Narrowing that intersection is going to make that area suck way more around rush hour. Glad i dont to through there much anymore. Happy to see this one being built though. Now that Walgreens lot is just screaming for something....

ok, but it sure does look like they're moblizing on this one.

and with the foundation permit in hand, if they've got the financing, why wouldn't they?

They are just constructing a sidewalk cover in the street for the hell of it. Obviously not ramping up to build a skyscraper.

Temporary street coverings and the permits to close traffic lanes and sidewalks aren't cheap. They aren't going to do stuff like this unless they are planning on moving quickly. They will probably wait to close the lot until the day the equipment shows up since it's probably already a logistical nightmare for the hotel to be without this lot for 2+ years.

I'll be honest I had to look this up since I didn't believe you, but I forgot how the lake tapers inward and isn't just a vertical coast/shore. It might be further west geographically, but the impact on viewing the skyline for this puppy will be much greater when one views it from the North or South.
