Buck's 200 N Michigan Avenue Rental Tower to Begin March 2014
Well, it looks like The John Buck Company is moving one of them forward.
As Curbed Chicago reported last week, a proposal was given by the company for the 515 ft., 432 rental unit tower (pictured above), designed by bKL Architecture. The proposal included a timeline for site preparation and demolition as soon as December 2013 with construction beginning March 2014.
Buck hopes that this development with create a “catalyst for transformation” on a somewhat underdeveloped intersection on Michigan Avenue.
John Buck built his career in Chicago, and shares responsibility for many buildings on Wacker Drive, including 200 South Wacker.
From a Chicago Loop Alliance perspective, this kind of development is a step in the right direction, given the Loop’s ever-increasing status as Chicago’s premier neighborhood in which to live, work and play.
