New Apartments and Restaurant Coming to 1150 S. Wabash?

We've heard rumors of large high rises going in at 1150 S. Wabash (just North of the building with Bongo Room), but we're happy to get this email from a reader:

Just wanted to drop a line and give a heads up that the burnt out building at 1150 S wabash will be partially torn down and a new 3 story building will be in its place.

The first two floors will be some restaurant (the drawings didn't say what) and the third floor will be new studio apartments aimed at Columbia students.

Who knows what the deal is, but we always like the idea of new restaurants coming in. It sounds like Wabash has some momentum going...

The folks @ Bongo Room must be thrilled that TJs and others will be opening at that intersection. When that happens, then hopefully those other businesses will start getting some of the gang tagging that gets etched onto Bongo Room's windows and walls every weekend.

Someone mentioned on Everyblock that 5 Guys & a Burger are coming in as the retail spot.
