More potential development news (via Curbed Chicago from last week):
Criticized sometimes for being too auto-centric and suburban, the South Loop’s Roosevelt Collection may finally get an infusion of urban design as plans for the project‘s long-discussed high-rise phase appear to be moving forward. A recent post on the online development-watching forum at skyscraperpage.com revealed a new rendering of such a building as well as information that prelimary bids for the project are expected to be forthcoming.
The existing mixed-use complex is currently home to over 300,000 square feet of retail space topped by 342 loft-style rental units plus a 16-screen cinema and utterly gargantuan 1,500-space parking garage. The aforementioned high-rise piece would occupy an empty notch set aside at the Roosevelt Collection’s northwestern corner.
