You think that Chicago is losing something urban/city wise by demolishing Atrium Village?

Really? https://www.google.com/maps/place/20...!4d-87.6350111

Or are you talking about the various developments in Streeterville which were vacant surface lots usually or once upon a time...warehouses?

I think we're all going to miss Prentice, but overall I think some minds will be changed when/if the tower gets built. Will be a nice sight change driving down lakeshore. How tall was the tower portion supposed to be again?

Same. It was an interesting building but I didn't really like it much. Looks like someone trying too hard to be futuristic but that's just my own opinion.

I think it's more of who was involved in the design than the execution of the building itself which was somewhat brutalist and had ceilings that were really low apparently.

Not to get off topic - 1) A little brutalism is good, even necessary. 2) No it was fine to work in, I worked in it, ahead of it's time in floor layout.

Last time I looked I thought the total floor count was going to be like 47 floors, which would be a pretty tall tower for that part of Streeterville

Hopefully this means we're one step closer to reconstructing the Division L station.

I posted this in the transit thread, but am reposting it here so others can see:

Unfortunately, it looks like construction for the bypass won't begin until 2019, and construction is expected to take 4-5 years.

Yeah, Rush hospitals new tower is literally programmatically identical to Prentice. 40+ years after the original design of Prentice. Also it was one of the first buildings designed using CAD software.

It's been lightning fast, especially compared to the Flats next door!
