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."
