This is a new project that has been announced in the past couple weeks. It was rumored for some time but it appears to a serious development now. Its called Park Michigan and its located at 830 South Michigan. Its a very slender tower reaching 80 stories and a height of 866'. There will be 375 condos. The old YMCA will be gutted and used as an upscale restaurant and a spa. A specialty grocery store will be included within the tower that will front Wabash Ave. There is also a rooftop garden. The crown will be illuminated at night.
There was a neighborhood meeting for the project that went rather well and has the backing of the local alderwoman. Next step is city approval which I feel will be an easy process. (I hope I didnt jinx it). There was a time when I thought the South Loop wouldnt see anything over 300' but now its the most booming part of the city. Anyway, construction is expected for the third quarter of 2007 and completion in 2009.
Here are a couple images:

I like the design for the most part. It is a little bit bland in the renderings, but you can't really see all the details in such a small picture. What kind of impact would this have on the surrounding neighborhoods?
