  1. 5 stories in a location surrounded by yester-years high-rises and across from the tallest building along the entire north shore. Come on Chicago, do better. We should have seen an explosion of high-rise growth along the north-shore over the last 20 years given how affluent these areas have become. Instead we’ve seen only a handful `

  2. Our still counter-productive zoning and developer-unfriendly building department and process at work.

  3. I’m glad that there is not highrise glut. Sheridan already has plenty of highrises. Hate what’s happening in the Randolph Street area — all of those towering buildings create a shadowed, grey, and cold atmosphere at the street level. Ugly building designs as well.

    • That’s life in the big-city, transformation is a positive. We shouldn’t stop building high-rises because “there’s enough already.” We need to maximize population and structural density, generate tax-revenue and provide modern high-rise housing options with modern amenities as the vast majority of high-rises along the north shore are ugly mid-century-modern boxes that are set-back from the street and don’t contain active uses.

      We have to compete with coastal cities and the lakefront is our greatest feature, new buildings near-by that offer lake views is an asset for the city to attract high income individuals that want big-city hustle and bustle. The scale drops off a cliff west of Sheridan.

  4. Totally agree with UnionMade.
