Here is the lack of ambition and long-term vision on behalf of the developers and the irrational fear of height and density on behalf of residents and aldermen on full display.
A couple comments on this though. The design is a lot nicer than the previous one (even if I hate losing the denity). And the biggest upgrade is that the tower that was cut may become an extension of mary bart park along with the closure of Monroe. It gives WL a park which I would prefer over almost any tower design on that plot. If it happens - it will be one of the best developments in WL recently.

917 Fulton Market - 10 Stories -155'

Architect: Morris Adjmi

Great building with perfect proportions echoing Art-Deco verticality here. I wish he had more work in Chicago. Thankfully the first renders were just placeholders.

All very interesting! Does anyone know of the newest development further west in the Near West Side community area?
