GREEN ROOF ALERT! 901 W. Madison in the West Loop goes the green route!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on May 22, 2010

I was up on the roof of 901 W. Madison in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood and the first thing I noticed was the building’s green roof!  Figured that a lot of people don’t see a green roof up close so I made sure to take a closeup photo.

Do you know of any other good green roofs that I could get access too or that you have photos of?

Big losses for those involved with The Chicago Spire…no surprises here.

Spire affiliate reports big loss linked to stalled tower

By Eddie Baeb and Thomas A. Corfman, Feb. 03, 2010

(Crain’s) — A Dublin-based affiliate of Chicago Spire developer Garrett Kelleher reported a $207.6-million annual loss, much of which is attributed to the stalled Spire project.

Clarinabbey Ltd. says in an annual financial report filed last week in Ireland that the company took a loss provision against loans made to other companies led by Mr. Kelleher – including one that’s been a major financing vehicle for the Spire. Clarinabbey says the provision stems from “uncertainty associated with the recoverability of amounts owed by group companies.”

Financial results were reported in Euros and converted to U.S. dollars.

The Spire project, a twisting, 1,194-unit condominium tower at 400 N. Lake Shore Drive that would have been the tallest building in the United States, may account for at least $135 million of the $197.7-million loss provision, based on a previous filing by Shelbourne Finance Ltd., which is the entity pegged to the provision in Clarinabbey’s filing.

Shelbourne Finance has previously said the firm provided an interest-free loan of $38.2 million to a Spire-related entity and separately advanced the project $96.8 million, according to its 2008 annual report, the most recent available.

Clarinabbey, whose majority owner is Mr. Kelleher, reported last week that it is “technically in breach” on loan-to-value and interest-coverage covenants with its lenders, a group that includes the now-nationalized Anglo Irish Bank Corp., along with Royal Bank of Scotland Plc and Bank of Scotland (Ireland) Ltd.

Clarinabbey says it’s working to negotiate a standstill agreement with the banks or a restructuring of its loans, but that “there exists a fundamental uncertainty over the company’s ability to meet its obligations as and when they fall due.”

The financial reports were filed with the Companies Registration Office in Ireland.

Calls to spokeswomen for Shelbourne and a voicemail left at the firm’s Chicago office on Wacker Drive weren’t returned.

Clarinabbey reported the $207.6-million loss for the period ended March 31, 2009.

NEW LISTING ALERT! 2Bed/2Bath duplex penthouse at 6 S. Laflin. Amazing views!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on February 15, 2010

Check out our new two bed, two bath @properties listing, located at 6 S. Laflin Street in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood.  Now, as soon as I set foot into this home my eyes immediately went to the huge windows to look at the AMAZING, unobstructed views of downtown Chicago.  I swear the rest of the home is great too but I’m always a sucker for a city view.  6 S. Laflin has a great sized kitchen with plenty of storage, a spacious living area, and a great sized bedroom on the first floor.  Walk up one flight of stairs where the master bedroom suite is and you’ll find a HUGE walk in closet and an outdoor terrace that begs for a major party in the summer.

This part of the West Loop has seen a major expansion lately and will only continue with development.  You’re about a block away from Skinner Park and Union Park, and close to some restaurants and stores.

Laflin is listed by @properties agents Karen Fata and Jordan Shackelford at a price of $339,000.  This place is seriously priced to sell quickly.  If you have any questions…or want to buy the place, send an email to jeffstewart@atproperties.com.

RD+659. Slow sales change to success. Only 1 home left for sale in this West Loop building!

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on February 5, 2010

Some of you may know of RD+659, a highrise condo building located at 659 W. Randolph Street in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood.  About a year ago, rumors were swirling about RD+659’s condos turning into rental apartments, or that the condos would see price cuts.  Well, they’re still condos but the developers brought in @properties to help sell out the building and boy, did it work.  Because of smart price reductions, sales have skyrocketed and now, only 1…yes 1 condo remains!

RD+659’s only remaining home is a 2Bed/2Bath condo with unobstructed Southern exposure, $15,000 worth of upgrades and an extra wide parking spot, all for $371,000. 

RD+659’s building amenities include an outdoor swimming pool, roof deck, fitness center, bike room, heated parking, dry cleaners, and a 24 hour doorperson.  The assessments are $460/month and it includes EVERYTHING you would need…all in one payment.  Your water, electricity, gas, cable, internet, air conditioning, and all of the building amenities.  Just think of how much all of these would cost you if you paid each seperately. 

Check out the RD+659 website and if you have any questions about the remaining home, just ask me!  Photos courtesy of the RD’s website also.
