I'm amazed how much this project changes the arena district. I wish the office portion was going up. When. Does phase two begin?

I heard that another group is pushing forward with the office portion. It will be redesigned from Franklin's (really cool) plan.

Franklin’s project didn’t work, but I was always pretty confident something would replace it pretty quickly. Glad to hear it.

What do you mean it didn't work? Didn't work out? :)

Yeah, sorry. I meant didn’t work out. They were swinging for the fences, but I’m sure there are a lot of smaller offices, non-hq’s that would be attracted to an office building in that area.

I feel like you are suggesting this new plan for the office building might not be as cool as the "really cool" Franklin plan?    Is this based on knowledge of who is taking this on?

I thought Franklin Partners plan was really cool. It sounds like the new office building will be a lot like the other Studio Park buildings. Which is fine, just thought it would be cool to mix it up a bit.

I agree the Franklin Partners building was unlike anything GR currently has (full transparent glass).   Maybe the cost per square foot was too much for the market to bear. and with a less expensive building, they can attract more tenants, with lower rents?

I have no idea if the new design will be less expensive. I haven't seen anything.

Would Grdadof3 do his usual paint rectangle to show where the office building would go and height 

It's the narrow space right in front of the parking ramp in the photo below, and on the far right in the rendering, right below the apartment tower (white colored building).

Haha. Sure.  Think of it like 38 commerce: an L-shaped liner building. That's why it's height restricted. The residential tower base is that portion built already.

Not exactly Studio Park related, but I have a hunch it is a catalyst for this decision. J. Gardella's Tavern is for sale, asking $2 Million for building, business, and liquor license. Seems like a nice retirement plan for the owners, cash in on the on the $140 million development a block away.

I have a feeling Loeks is going to wish the parking lot had a smaller footprint so he had room to expand.  The theater is going to be packed.

I guess I'm still a little confused... so the Phase II tower is going to be sandwiched b/w the parking garage and "Future Office Tower"?  Wouldn't that make the first few stories almost completely windowless or will there be space between.

Those apartments with the balconies and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the courtyard/movie entrance are going to pretty sweet.

The apartment tower will sit on top of the parking garage.

Thanks for explaining this yet again, mpchicago. :)

One additional question. In the rendering on the west side of the “complex”, there’s a smaller building that looks different than the office rendering. Would this be the entrance/lobby to the apartment building at street level?

Love the design, height and  shape but Wish the tower was facing the other way so it’s not so wide blocking driving north on 131

I agree with you to a certain extent. An older rendering had it facing the other way and the tower looked more architecturally satisfying to the eyes in my opinion. Part of me also thinks the new direction will still look cool approaching the s-curve from the south...
