30-Story High-Rise on South Wabash Gets Partial Construction Permit

Looks like we have some movement at south Wabash (via Chicagoyimby.com):

Last week, a partial construction permit was approved for a new 30-story mixed-use tower at 1400 S Wabash Avenue in South Loop. The site of the project has long sat vacant as a former parking lot, with one of Chicago YIMBY’s earliest articles speculating on the developer plans. Now set to stand 305 feet to the roof and 316 feet to pinnacle, the glassy new tower will have a significant impact on South Loop’s steadily-densifying skyline.

One little civic improvement looks like a small pocket park will be built to the north of the site:

Assuming all goes according to the plan, the building is somewhat more aesthetically pleasing than most buildings in the area:
