290 Foot Apartment Building Approved by Plan Commission for 1408 S. Wabash

In case you missed this last week, looks like we're getting another big building on South Wabash (via Curbed Chicago):
The Plan Commission voted on a planned development from American Landmark Properties to construct a 290-foot, 296-unit apartment building in Chicago’s South Loop (at 1408 S. Wabash). The plan includes a landscaped motor court with a water feature, ground floor retail, and 30 affordable-rate units to be located on-site. While the project was approved, Commissioner Linda Searl offered a critique of the pseudo-French Provincial design from architect Lucien Lagrange.  
"We’re now in the 21st century and here we have a building style that’s been around since the 19th century," stated Searl. "We would hope that future projects would bring forward more creative and interesting designs, especially in the South Loop."
