That was me, a couple weeks ago on the 444 West Lake Thread. It's interesting how information goes full circle. I'm pretty sure that LaGrange has nothing to do with this project as Goettsch is now pretty far along in the conceptual design process.
For some reason either our marketing department or the developer's hasn't publicized anything concrete on the design of this building yet (even a couple of us in the office wondered why it wasn't in Crain's rendering reveal last week). But I would hate to be the one to accidentally give away information that is not ready for the public. I will tell you though that if you are searching for news on this project it is most likely going to be re-branded as part of North Riverside Plaza rather than by its Randolph St. Address.
Also, while the redesign looks nothing like the rendering posted above, the massing/site plan are still mostly the same, with the tower in the northeast corner, a 2-3 story parking/amenities/cafeteria podium with roof-top park along the west side and a semi-enclosed plaza open to the river and Randolph St. on in the southeast corner.
Back on topic: blipsman, have you had a chance to get a photo of the crown on 2520 lately? I've been squinting at the completed mansard roof from the ground and I'm curious to see how the details hold up-close (or not hold as often is the case with LaGrange). I particularly thing the matched light grey windows in a light grey roof was a bit of an odd choice, but maybe it will grow on me.
