There were surveyors on the empty lot today on the southeast corner of Roosevelt and Michigan.

We heard a rumor about the British School of Chicago looking at this lot, but that seems HIGHLY unlikely (and probably unnecessary given their current building just north of Roosevelt Collection).
While surveyors don't always mean something is definitely coming, it does usually mean there is some interest.
With the real estate market heating up (see post yesterday) it just seems like this lot getting developed is inevitable.
If it happens, hopefully it's a statement high-rise. This is about as high-profile of a spot that there is in the South Loop.
