Who can see your viewing activity?
Will this building use bird-safe glass? If not, we’re looking at an avian holocaust.
It looks taller than 4 East Elm.
Why isn’t the building set back like The Viceroy and the new Lou Malnati’s property?
If this glass mammoth gets through, all of State will be gone.
What is your response to residents of 1133 Dearborn, 14 W Elm and 10 W Elm whose well-being will be shot with this proposal? (Construction, obstructed views, no more sunlight in apts,etc.)? This building is way too tall.
Congratulations SCB and Newcastle on the design improvements. It fits beautifully into State and Elm. What is the demographic you are targeting for renters? What types of retail tenants are you targeting?
What evidence do you have that there is a need for more residential space for the God Coast?
I agree with Mr. Almasy. This is a terrific addition to the neighborhood. My only concern is retail. There are several empty storefronts in the area. Can the developers please speak to this concern.
How can you sign a lease when you do not have approval on the project??
How units in the project? The building is way too big for the neighborhood.
State Street still looks too congested—building too close to street.
Why is this project requiring this level of community input and review when 11 East Partners is proposing adding an additional 10,000 square feet of commercial space at Newberry Plaza without any community review and city approval?
Please address parking spaces vs. space for Uber and delivery drop off space. I don't see a pull in on the Elm Street residential entrance to address this congestion.
How does the "sophisticated living environment" differ from what you are developing a block north? Seems likes there is potential for overbuilding of similar style living.
I like the improvements but I still feel that it is too large with too much density. It has 304 units! That is a lot
How many parking spaces will it have?
Respectfully, that doesn’t respond directly as to why the building can’t be set back farther on the State St. side to further relie
*To further relieve sidewalk conge
A few people seem concerned about the size. Can you elaborate on how this does or does not meet Central Business District zoning requirements?
*To further relieve State St. sidewalk congestion.
Why can't more people join this zoom meeting- Someone is trying to join and it says the meeting is at it's capacity???
1200 square feet for a 2-bedroom is NOT 'quite large.'
can you speak to the all-glass architectural style, were alternatives considered and do you envision this 'all-glass' style to be relevant in 10-15 years?
Will the metered parking spaces on State remain in place?
This will completely change the culture of the neighborhood. Residents will be transient in nature in a generally older, non-transient neighborhood.The pedestrian traffic on State St. will increase dramatically and there is not enough of a set back. That is by far the most important to theneighborhood’s walking experience. SCB can get more creative.
will the parking be public or private?
Neighborhood retail is good. We have seen too much of Oak Street moving north.
Are you planning any restaurant space,like Big Bowl or Bistro Zinc? Or just general retail? More restaurants are very much needed.
Parking will be for residents and guests. No public parking.
That's a problem since you are replacing a pubic parking lot.
Why glass, not stone?
Excuse me, I’d kindly like a response about the height of the building in regards to the other buildings within the block
What would really be Newcastle’s hard line on height?
Kurt, you didn’t address the sidewalk setback issue on State St. Simply move the building back on State St., the same way it’s dimensioned on the Elm St. side.
Does the larger side walk make the street narrower? The 36 Broadway bus stop and traffic are a concern.
Will their be uplighting on the building at night?
Why can’t it be shorter like your at building at State and Division? Are there balconies?
You will block the view of south facing at 10 W Elm
You will also block part of view for 1122 N Dearborn
Please prepare and share a sun shadow visual for the neighborhood over a year.
And the view will be blocked for 14 W Elm
Fulton Market has much much wider streets. Narrowing the streets is a huge problem.
Thank you for the explanation on the street.
Can you talk about the financial contributions that may be made to the City of Chicago for neighborhood development? And will they be directed to our neighborhood?
Building proposal is still too tall. Too many units, too much congestion. Need to look at the lower height, fewer units and I echo comment that building should be set back further from the street.
Well done. Looking forward to this vast improvement to our neighborhood.
Can we get a copy of the presentation if we were in another meeting?
This building is way too tall for this location. The first responders already have a horrible time getting thru these streets causing loud noise and conjestion.
The people who couldn’t log in because of the capacity limit were not available to ask questions
This building is very out of sorts by height and choice of glass. An eyesore.\
Great presentation. Thank you
