    They should be using the adjacent Greystone for inspiration and play off of its amazing architecture and scale, which the Ellford design does. BTW, 5 to 6 stories is the right size. Moreover, believe the brick resurfacing of Pearl alley in conjunction with a grey limestone facade would be a great aesthetic too. Hope this projects gets built after ARMS scandals, drama and debacle! Those thieves should be in jail for 25 years and serving 3 consecutve sentences.

    Ughh. Wagenbrennner’s design is too hideous, simple, and safe, but… they do have a proven track record and can probably get this thing done. That’s more than we can say about anyone else at this point, soo I’m torn on the issue.

    Just came from Chicago this past weekend and stayed in Lincoln Park. Holy crap! The architectural details are amazing and just about every building, big and small, is covered in them. If Waggenbrenner can spruce up the building and truly reflect past architecture of early 20th, then the success of the building will be proven in the detail. I’ll even take a gargoyle or two.

    I’d swear that mockup is ~25% larger than the actual build site…

    Glad Apex will finally be out of the picture. Wagenbrenner is the safe bet. Hopefully some of those condo buyers will get some of their deposits back.

    I hope they go back to the drawing board on the design; I’ve had bowel movements that look better. I did kind of like the original design of Ibiza — but not as much as the original design of The Joseph. I despise boring — and this is a big ol’ wet blanket of boring.

    (the parking garage will also be haunted, but that shouldn’t be as big of a problem–there isn’t much mischief a ghost can get up to in a car, it’s too small, and plus nobody’s gonna be spooked by some levitating highway tokens.)

    Looks like Elford is the builders?

    Is it just me… or does 18,000 sqft of retail seem smaller than expected?

    Looks better than the old building that was raised.

    Also looks better than a gravel/weed lot.

    I’m not sure, this and The Jeffery Place lot are in about the third phase of ecological succession.

    I’m really not sure this looks better. I really can’t imagine a more boring design.
