To a casual observer, Related Midwest’s revised plan for the two-tower project on the Chicago Spire site might not look all that different from the original,79彩票注册网址 at least from a distance.
79彩票注册网址The basic geometry of the two buildings is unchanged, with multiple terraced setbacks creating a tapered effect as they rise—“reminiscent of a waterfall,” according to a statement from the Chicago developer. Related Midwest plans the development on a key parcel at the Chicago River and Lake Shore Drive, best known as the site of the aborted 2,000-foot Chicago Spire.
79彩票注册网址“It does look a lot like what it was before, certainly from afar,” Related Midwest President Curt Bailey said in an interview yesterday.
A closer inspection reveals some significant differences from the developer’s first design, presented nearly two years ago. Gone is a 175-room hotel amid concerns from neighbors and downtown Ald. Brendan Reily, 42nd, about increased traffic the hotel would generate. Same for a bulky podium connecting the two towers at their bases.
79彩票注册网址The biggest difference may be the project’s height: The two towers would rise 875 and 765 feet, down from 1,100 and 850 feet under the original design. The buildings are shorter because they no longer include the hotel and no longer stand on a podium, Bailey said. At 1,100 feet, the taller high-rise would have ranked as the eighth tallest in Chicago, according to the Council on Tall Buildings & Urban Habitats. The 875-foot tower would rank 14th now.7072彩票开户 7073彩票地址 963彩票开户 7073彩票网址 689彩票邀请码 7073彩票注册 8炫彩彩票app 677彩票开户 7073彩票登录 66顺彩票app
