Every crane that rises to bring another skyscraper to the city of Chicago must eventually return to earth. Even at Old Town Park.
Brianbobcat sent in the photograph above that he snapped from a passing CTA Brown Line train. It shows a tower crane coming down at the multi-tower development that is replacing Atrium Village in five phases.
The new Old Town-adjacent project, called Old Town Park, will eventually be four residential skyscrapers in the 31- to 39-story range, and a four-story residential building.
It’s being developed by Vancouver’s Onni.
Sadly, even thought this was originally promoted with renderings showing a new CTA Brown/Purple Line station at Division Street, there’s nothing about it in the official plans.
