The James R. Thompson Center, opened in 1985, is looking at a future of not being around, if Governor Bruce Rauner has his way. He wants a public auction to sell the property for cash by the close of 2016.
At 17 stories, the 980,000 s.f. open-air atrium has been criticized for excess noise and granite slabs that have fallen out. – Not a good use of space – but very beautiful!
The Tribune reports some compelling financial incentives to move on from this 30-year-old building: Governor Rauner stated that the current building has $100 million in deferred maintenance costs–while a new structure could bring in about $20 million annually to the city and public schools. And approximately 2,200 government workers would be relocated to other properties in the city or Springfield, further sparing $6-12 million from taxpayers per year.
The building, which is three decades old, certainly could use a good fix-up. The state has not maintained any part of it very well, nor has anybody thought to renovate it so that it can answer to today’s office standards and technology. The retail spaces have gone down market. The building’s style does not help: With curves that cascade down toward the street, vivid colors, and the screen of a notional arcade that peels off the main space to help define the plaza, the Thompson Center is a postmodern anomaly in the Loop’s grid.
In the last week, several new skyscrapers were announced by leading architects. Chicago CURBED reports, The economy has rebounded and the real estate market is red hot with people starting to buy homes again and developers proposing new tower projects for the downtown area.

Many of the downtown projects proposed in the last couple of years have been for new hotels and apartment towers, however there are a handful of very ambitious skyscrapers that if built, could forever change city’s skyline.

PLUS A year ago when we first put together our first list of the highrises under construction in Chicago, we were stoked that they totaled 14 towers. The number then increased to 18 earlier this year. Today, that number is now 21. There are twenty one highrises currently under construction across the city, which include new hotels, office towers, apartments, and even a couple of condominium projects. READ THE FULL STORY HERE.

Please do not feed the pigeons. There are dozens of reasons why, but
mainly: feeding pigeons harms our neighborhoods and also harms the
Large population of pigeons is a health hazard.
Our huge feral pigeon population is a health hazard and creates many
problems in the city. Pigeon droppings dirty public spaces, do costly
damage to buildings, and can spread life-threatening diseases,
especially to the elderly and immune-deficient. Their nesting materials
block drains and harbor parasites like bird mites. Pigeon food makes a
mess and attracts rats.
Feeding pigeons promotes overbreeding.
Pigeon feeding produces overbreeding. Pigeons normally breed two or
three times a year, producing two eggs per brood. Overfed city pigeons
can breed up to eight times a year.
Pigeons are harmed when fed.
When you feed pigeons, you are not doing them a favor. They lose their
natural ability to scavenge and survive on their own. Pigeon over
population leads to overcrowded, unsanitary conditions and produces sick
and injured birds. A smaller flock is healthier and does less damage.
Stubborn pigeon feeders in Chicago might soon be pinching their
pennies in order to pay the fines as high as $1,000 proposed Wednesday
by Ald. James Cappleman (46th) in response to what he sees as a massive
problem in his Uptown ward.
Cappleman introduced an ordinance that would make feeding pigeons in the city an illegal act punishable with up to six months in jail along with a hefty fine, NBC Chicago reports. A similar fine was previously proposed in New York in 2007 but has not been implemented.
The alderman told the Chicago Sun-Times that the massive pigeon
population in his ward, buoyed by bread and rice-armed enablers, has reached a height that is “scaring people” near area CTA “L” stations. Pigeon droppings are actually destroying roofs of buildings.
Col. James Pritzker, a member of a prominent and wealthy Chicago
family and funder of a study on transgender people in the military, has
come out as transgender, Crain’s Chicago Business reports.
Crain’s quotes an email sent to employees of the Pritzker
Military Library and Pritzker’s company Tawani Enterprises, saying, “As
of Aug. 16, 2013, J.N. Pritzker will undergo an official legal name
change, will now be known as Jennifer Natalya Pritzker. This change will
reflect the beliefs of her true identity that she has held privately
and will now share publicly. Pritzker now identifies herself as a woman
for all business and personal undertakings.” The business journal adds
that “a spokeswoman declined to answer questions about Col. Pritzker’s
sexuality or possible hormone therapy.”
Pritzker has a net worth of $1.5 billion, according to Forbes,
and has donated to many philanthropic efforts, including preservation
and restoration of historic buildings. Her family has a long history in
business. Pritzker’s father, the late Robert Pritzker, founded the
Marmon Group, a holding company for a variety of businesses, and her
uncles, the late Jay Pritzker and Donald Pritzker, founded Hyatt Hotels.
Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker is her cousin.
