Looking at the boom as a whole, we definitely have a ton of cranes and projects getting started. From a construction standpoint, we are still booming. With 8,000 units in 2017 and 2018 we have a pretty saturated market. Fortunately, demand has kept up with supply, as of now. I believe occupancy of non-leasing up phase buildings has remained steady between 92-94%.

This all leads into my question, doesn't it seem like we have gotten a pretty drastic slowdown in proposals?

Maybe there's developer fatigue or fear of the market slowing down? I know we just caught wind of 300 N Michigan, but other than that and the long term waits, like Spire site, etc. It feels like there haven't been too many new proposals, in general, especially nothing breaking out of our 500 foot forest.

Just curious for everyone's thoughts on something I've noticed, but could be wrong about.
A month ago I would've agreed with you about the slowdown in proposals, but at the moment, I'm slammed with new work to look at! Now, most of these projects are mid-rise at best, but there are a couple taller buildings out for bid right now. Check back next month...it will probably be dead!!

The Medical District Apartments are being redeveloped to include a new tower:
NW Corner of Ashland Ave & Taylor St | 19 stories/209 feet | 254-units| 245 parking | 28,000 sft of retail


The old YMCA building is looking to shrink from 583 SROs to 400, but include new office and commercial space

166 N Aberdeen has been reduced by two stories, and is now 18 stories and 198 ft. Looks like Curbed beat me to the news: https://chicago.curbed.com/2017/5/24...nts-new-design

20-story Fulton Market high-rise proposal shrinks by two stories
The revised plan would see the building rise 198—not 217—feet

by Jay Koziarz May 24, 2017, 12:26pm CDT

A high-rise rental tower proposed to replace the Fabbri Sausage plant in Chicago’s Fulton Market District won’t be quite as tall as originally revealed. According to a zoning application submitted to the City of Chicago, the building planned for 166 N. Aberdeen has knocked two floors off the previous 20-story design presented last month to less than enthusiast West Loop neighbors. At the time, MCZ Development had yet to formally file its paperwork with the city.

Other apparent changes include a reduction in ground floor commercial space from 5,000 to 3,900 square feet and a slight cut in garage spaces from 84 to 80. Unit count, however, has been reduced by just a single apartment and now stands at 235. This could mean that the average size of the dwellings has come down or that the overall unit mix now skews more heavily towards studios and one-bedrooms.

I think 3eleven turned out great. I like the pillars running through the corner balconies. I know it blocks some of the view from the inside but gives it some character looking from the outside.
