Progress at Northwest Corner of Wabash and Balbo

Curbed Chicago posts about progress at the northwest corner of Wabash and Balbo:
An upcoming high rise apartment development at the northwest corner of Wabash and Balbo is poised to go vertical as the hot South Loop neighborhood continues to aggrandize. Though foundation work has been underway since March, a recent permit outlines the imminent arrival of the building’s tower crane — specifically, a Peiner model SK 415.

The renderings look nice.  We're most excited about the upgrade to the retail space:
The plan calls for 134 dwelling units, a full suite of indoor/outdoor communal amenities, and roughly 8,000 square feet of ground level retail space. Though 30 East's pricing has not be announced, expect any college undergrads moving into this brand new downtown building to most likely be getting assistance from well-off parents. Occupancy is slated for 2017.

Can't wait to try corner restaurant...

(FYI - joking about corner restaurant)
