Feel bad for the people in 600 N Fairbanks that will be surrounded by this crap on all sides.
That's a gorgeous photo (patches of miscellaneous junk notwithstanding). Also a rare vantage point, being in the Doubletree.
The ex Graves site was purchased by NMH and definitely not NU? The site is narrow and well-suited to window-intensive uses (hotel/residential) much better than medical uses, so fingers crossed NMH is just planning to use it for a while as surface parking and selling it rather than building anything mediocre. The location is great for a hotel and the 2 corners are perfect for retail too. Hayward, the parking garages in that area by now have sprouted up like mushrooms, haven't they.
Spyguy thanks for the Insull's Throne photo of yesteryear!
