Fantastic updates!!! Cook County Hospital looks spectacular already and can't wait to see it completed. To think they almost tore it down several times is scary.

I still don't understand why the top window glass panes are different than the lower two levels.

The exterior of this building is so jumbled it's like they pulled what style glazing and details would go on a given part of the structure randomly out of a hat. Probably the biggest worst thing done on Fulton so far.

Yes.

I am extremely bullish about Orange Line neighborhoods. In real estate, the huge money is made of course when areas are just on the cusp of transformation. Huge sums will be made on bets placed over the next few years from Chinatown all the way to Clearing. McKinley Park is maybe the epicenter. Phenomenally strong fundamentals.

So much TOD potential as well.

Pretty absurd for a project that's 25% affordable housing and 35% "workeforce housing" whatever that means.

Oh well, more money for me...

The understanding that I have is that he wants more family sized units.

Given that the building is of finite size, this means that the developer will need to build fewer apartments. Thus, less affordable housing.

This new Alderman is brilliant!

Anyhow, if I were the developer I would comply, and then just market it to groups of roommates.

Is that why it doesn’t meet “his standards”? I didn’t read that....but I did see earlier comments more generically about what he wants to see more of in his ward. Honestly I don’t know much about him or what to expect, but I can’t help but have a sneaking suspicion that we should expect less development broadly in the 1st, which of course means an acceleration in price and rent growth (though less a not insignificant supply-induced demand effect - which a lot of market watchers completely miss), and a corresponding acceleration in the pace of gentrification.

Looks good for a McCaffery development, low bar as it is and all.

PS I consider Lincoln Commons more of a Hines.
