I'm liking this new design a lot.
This rehab (another Ittner - designed school) has all it's approvals, and the developer hopes to start work this Summer: "Meanwhile, he’s close to starting on another Ittner-designed school rehab in University City, the closed Nathaniel Hawthorne Elementary at 1351 North Hanley Road. He hopes to sta...
Yikes; 5766 looks like a modern version of a half-flounder.
If I'm reading the Preservation Board drawings correctly, this thing is gonna be over 400' tall.

My job has taken me into many high rises over the years, and I've seen quite a few that do skip #13; seems to be mostly older buildings.
I think putting five floors in each of the top two tiers greatly improves the overall proportions of the tower. It breaks up the rhythm, and emphasizes the height. I'm still very eager to hear about the materials and detailing; items that can make or break a design (although I have complete faith in...
I don't know if this is the infill planned for 2220 Menard, but Phillip Dunham is listed as architect, and I found this on his website as "Soulard Infill Prototype": https://i1.wp.com/studiodurham.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Model-detail-front-2-1.png?fit=1200%2C900 http://studiodurham.com/portfo...

Put it on Flickr or any other image hosting site and copy and past the address. Easy-peasy.
Yeah, I've figured out how to post pics from my home computer, but my cell phone is very low-IQ. Not worth the bother.

Er, sorry; I may be able to take a pic on my phone, but I have no idea how to post it.
Crews are onsite at the Wolfner Library, clearing overgrowth and hanging scaffolding. Tuckpointing maybe?
