Just caught these plans for a new residential high rise building on the real estate message board, Skyscraperpage. The proposed building, designed by Brininstool, Kerwin and Lynch, will replace one of the many parking lots in Chicago’s West Loop and Greektown neighborhoods on Green Street between Van Buren and Jackson.
The Brininstool, Kerwin and Lynch website describes the building as having around 370,000 square feet in 28 story’s, eight of which will be above ground parking clad in glazed horizontal windows. With the current plans, I’m definitely on the road to really liking the building. The base from far away actually looks pretty interesting but once you see a close up photo, my opinion goes a complete 180… It just looks so boring and sterile especially when it’s surrounded by dozens of old, detailed, brick buildings. Please come up with something better!
