Model D reported that the company GM chose to do the River east development also did the State Place development in Chicago. I'd love to see something like this go up on the riverfront. Not that I'd be able to afford one of these places, but one can dream I guess.

Yeah, we drove by the area while in Chicago as well. Its a pretty large project to me, but not by Chicago's standard. I would love to see something like this on the river.

I only wish Model D would have included a graphic showing the boundries of the 13 acres. To this day I only know that it's east of the Ren Cen. I don't know if it straddles Atwater or borders it. Does anyone know what the boundries are?

From the article: "The property is bounded by Franklin to the north, Rivard to the east, the river and RiverWalk to the south and Beaubien to the west."

What are they going to do with the train tracks? Are they still in use?

not in use. removing tracks as of right now. those tracks lead into the dequindre cut/st. aubin rail spur, which is slated for a "rails to trails" conversion.

And possibly back partly to rail if the area can ever get it's act together on the idea of light rail.

In the image above, the area behind the red marker and framed in by St Antoine and Atwater is where the new Port Authority parking garage is located. They are puttng the finishing touches on it and I have been told that it will be available for the media and VIPs attending the Super Bowl.
