31 Story High-rise at 717 S. Clark is on the Fast Track

Looks like this is happening (via Curbed Chicago):
A new apartment tower is ready to quietly break ground at 717 S. Clark Street in downtown’s Printer’s Row neighborhood. The high-rise project received the all-clear to begin work on its foundation and first four levels, according to a recently issued construction permit.
The development will rise 31 floors—two more than the 29-story tower presented at last month’s 4th Ward town hall meeting hosted by Alderman Sophia King. Meanwhile, the amount of on-site parking has increased substantially from 96 to 192 spaces, according to information listed on the permit.

The number of residential units will remain at 349—one shy of triggering a review by the city. By staying below 350 apartments, the proposed development was able to move forward “as of right” without having to wait for a zoning change.
A couple weeks back we learned about this development and it appears it's in the fast lane.
