    18-Apr-14 – The Chicago Riverwalk’s construction manager now says work under three Chicago River bridges – that will require the bridges to be up for seven days at a time – will begin in the second week of May.

    In March, Oswaldo Chaves said the work would start in mid-April. While providing an update on Friday, Chaves offered no explanation for the delay. He and other officials with Chicago Department of Transportation have refused to explain an apparent lull in construction that lasted at least a few days until pile driving resumed on April 9.

    The bridges at State, Dearborn, and Clark Streets will be raised, one at a time, to accommodate construction of the Riverwalk below the south leaf of each bridge. While a bridge is up, crews will work 24 hours a day. Two to three weeks will pass between one bridge lowering and the next being raised.

    Most of the machinery noise will be heard during the day, promised Chaves in March. He says the noise will be similar to the engine of a large truck that is accelerating.

    Otherwise, Chaves had slow but steady progress to report. From State Street west to LaSalle Street, workers are still removing old concrete, installing tie rods that will hold up the river wall and walers that align and brace the wall.

    For the next few weeks, piles will continue to be pounded into the riverbank, both the larger vertical H-pile beams and the longer sections of sheet pile that will form the river wall.

    Work hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Construction equipment starts up at 6:30 a.m. The north sidewalk of Wacker Drive is still closed between Clark and LaSalle.

    Photo by Steven Dahlman 19-Apr-14 – The nine-foot-tall bronze statue of Chicago personality Irv Kupcinet, seen here on Wacker Drive in 2011, is visiting Forest Park for a few months.

    (Click on image to view larger version.)

    The statue near Wabash Avenue turned up missing this week, leading some to suspect foul play. The Chicago Police Department was investigating the disappearance until they learned city employees removed it on April 12.

    Damage to the stone pedestal needs to be repaired and while they do that, the statue that stands on top of it will be washed and waxed at The Conservation of Sculpture & Objects Studio, a private company specializing in art restoration and conservation.

    Kupcinet (1912-2003) was a columnist for Chicago Sun-Times, a television talk show host, and a radio personality. His statue was dedicated in July 2006.

    7-Apr-14 – Weighing at least 8,000 pounds, a cooling tower had to be set down in the median of Wacker Drive on Saturday when a helicopter lift did not go exactly as planned.

    The Sikorsky S-58T twin-turbine helicopter, employed by Midwest Helicopter Airways, had to abort its fifth and final trip due to unspecified issues on the roof of 205 West Wacker, a 25-floor commercial office building formerly known as Engineering Building.

    The load was gently set down on Wacker Drive. The helicopter flew off but returned shortly to finish the job.

    Photo by Steven Dahlman (Left) A helicopter for Midwest Helicopter Airways delivers a heating/ ventilation unit to the roof of 205 West Wacker. Manufactured by Baltimore Aircoil Company, this “cooling tower” uses water to extract heat that is then released to the atmosphere.

    Jim Triggs, director of operations for Midwest Helicopter Airways, says there was never any actual emergency.

    “The mechanic wanted to look at the helicopter to check something out,” said Triggs on Monday. “That was our planned [landing zone] if we needed one. All worked out good.”

    A short stretch of Wacker Drive was closed to traffic and pedestrians between Wells Street and Franklin Street from about 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.

    The helicopter is no stranger to the Chicago riverfront. It has delivered steel beams to the roof of Merchandise Mart and to the roof of theWit hotel. It helped take down each letter in the Unitrin sign on the north and south sides of One East Wacker Drive and one week later, lower into place each letter of the new Kemper signs. In 2010, the helicopter delivered camera gear to the roof of 35 East Wacker Drive during filming of Transformers 3.

    9-Apr-14 – It only took nine years but the luxury apartment tower at Wacker Drive & Clark Street is so close to completion that the developer is starting to lease units.

    Related Midwest announced on Wednesday that pre-leasing has opened at OneEleven, a 60-story building that will offer 504 apartments with rents starting at $1,600 per month. There will be six model apartments. The first tenants will move into the building in July.

    In 2011, Related Midwest acquired the site, the ruins of a failed project to build a 90-story condominium and hotel.

    “OneEleven is a symbol of Chicago’s renaissance,” said Gary Handel, president of the building’s architectural firm, Handel Architects. “At this pivotal site, we strove to create a building that will take its rightful place among the exceptional buildings that line the Chicago River.”

    Photo by Steven Dahlman 4-Apr-14 – A woman with a stripper pole in her room says she was robbed at gunpoint at the Westin Chicago River North.

    The unidentified woman says on March 22 at about 5 p.m. she was in a room on the 14th floor with two men. After business was “completed,” says the police report, one of the men pulled out a silver handgun and put it to the back of the woman’s neck. He dumped the contents of her purse onto the bed and took a red Android smartphone and four dollars in singles. He then cut the cord of the phone next to the bed.

    Before leaving, one of the men told the woman, “I’m watching you. Don’t call the police or I’ll kill you.”

    She contacted hotel security, which called 911. When police arrived at the hotel on North Dearborn Street, they saw the phone with the cut cord, a large pile of clothing and makeup items strewn about the bed, and the stripper pole.

    The woman was not injured and declined medical attention. Police note she did not answer all of their questions. After speaking with police, the woman was escorted by hotel staff off the premises along with an unnamed “associate.”

    4-Apr-14 – Mostly at hotels in River North, Chicago police have conducted 32 “sting” operations this year, all but five resulting in an arrest for soliciting for prostitution.

    Five operations were conducted in January, thirteen in February, and fourteen in March. Most of the arrests in March were at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Michigan Mile at 540 North Michigan Avenue. Seven arrests were made there on March 20 between 9 p.m. and 11:50 p.m.

    The first of the arrests was in room 1725. When an undercover police officer called in response to an ad, a woman answered and asked what he wanted and for how long. He was given a price for one hour and instructed to send by text message his address and room number. He received a text back saying “C U Soon.”

    When the woman arrived at about 8:50 p.m., she looked around “to make sure things were safe,” according to the police report, checking the bathroom and closet. Then she sat on the bed and asked for the “donation,” which the officer slipped into her stockings before calling in backup officers and arresting her.

    Of the nine hotels involved in the stings, all are north the Loop and six are in River North.

    203 North LaSalle

    19-Apr-14 – A company based in New York but owned by a large Japanese business group has purchased 203 North LaSalle.

    Also known as Loop Transportation Center, the 27-story office tower on the north side of the Loop features a sloping 12-story atrium. It was designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and built in 1985.

    Sumitomo Corporation of Americas announced on Friday it has purchased the 581,107 square foot building. The deal does not include ten levels of parking and retail space on the first and second floors.

    The building connects by tunnel to the James R. Thompson Center, including its CTA station at Clark & Lake, and by pedestrian bridge to 200 North Dearborn, an apartment building. Tenants include University of Phoenix and two large law firms, DLA Piper and Masuda, Funai, Eifert & Mitchell.

    Sumitoma plans to improve the lobby and elevators and build a fitness center for tenants.

    Chicago is a market the company is “targeting for more investment in the future.”

    “Sumitomo has been active on the coasts for years and has always viewed Chicago as a world-class city,” said Tomonri Wada, a senior vice president for Sumitomo. “We have been looking for the right opportunity to invest in Chicago and hope to increase our presence here.”

    Based in New York, Sumitomo Corporation of Americas is the largest subsidiary of one of the world’s biggest trading companies. With headquarters in Tokyo, Sumitomo Corporation is a member company of the Sumitomo Group, a Japanese business group started in 1615 by a former Buddhist priest.

    Nik Wallenda

    7-Apr-14 – City officials have backed off from speculation that professional daredevil Nik Wallenda will walk a tightrope over the Chicago River.

    “The specific location in the city has not been determined, but we know that the Chicago skyline is picturesque from any viewpoint,” said Mary May, public relations coordinator for the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.

    35-year-old Nik Wallenda, the great-grandson of legendary high-wire artist Karl Wallenda, was the first person to walk a tightrope directly over Niagara Falls and the first to high-wire walk across the Grand Canyon.

    He has a contract with the Discovery Channel for near-exclusive broadcast of his stunts. A new show on the television network, Skyscraper Live with Nik Wallenda, is scheduled to air as a live event this fall.

    According to May, Wallenda and the Discovery Channel have presented a proposal to the city for a high-wire stunt and the city is “working with them on a plan.”

    “This will be one for the history books,” said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “We are thrilled Nik Wallenda has chosen our great city with its iconic skyline as the site of the next walk.”

    The Discovery Channel has not released any information suggesting the stunt will involve the Chicago River. 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly was quoted on April 3 as saying “Wallenda is interested in doing a special event in downtown Chicago, in particular across the Chicago River.”

    His office, however, referred a request for elaboration to the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.

    Wallenda’s stunts can cost around $1.2 million but are seen by millions of people. 23 million in 183 countries watched him walk across the Grand Canyon. A broadcast of the Niagara Falls stunt attracted 13.1 million viewers. The Chicago stunt is expected to reach an audience of at least 22 million people.

    13-Apr-14 – Schnitzel, spaetzle, kolackys, and apple strudel are some of the European dishes that will be offered by a new restaurant on Illinois Street in River North.

    A building permit was issued on Friday for renovation of the 4,200 square foot ground floor of 11 West Illinois Street. That is between Snickers Bar & Grill, which has been around since the 1980s, and American Junkie, a sports bar/restaurant that opened in March 2013.

    The new restaurant will be called Bohemian House and will open in late May. Its executive chef, Jim Papadopoulos, was previously a chef at Sam & Harry’s, a steakhouse in Schaumburg.

    The four-story brick and timber building, tenants of which include a recording studio, is owned by Chicago attorney and real estate developer Howard Adalstein.

    Photo by Steven Dahlman 8-Apr-14 – A mishap with a beverage dispenser at a McDonald’s on North Michigan Avenue has led to a lawsuit against the fast food chain.

    Joy Ramirez says she was at the McDonald’s at Two Illinois Center on the north side of the Loop when a metal lid to the dispenser fell and hit her head.

    She is suing McDonald’s Corporation for $50,000. The case was filed on March 21. A case management hearing is scheduled for May 29.

    The McDonald’s location is owned and operated by an independent franchisee.

    15-Apr-14 – Saturday’s warm weather inspired bicycle rides for many Chicagoans. The city set a new single-day record for most rentals of Divvy bikes. 10,866 rides were taken on the shared bikes, beating the old record from last September.

    Photo by Steven Dahlman Of the 300 Divvy stations in the city, Magnificent Mile had the fourth busiest on Saturday. 253 trips started at the station at Michigan Avenue & Oak Street and 276 trips ended there.

    The most popular station was near Navy Pier, at Illinois Street & Streeter Drive.

    Since the system launched last June, people on Divvy bikes have taken more than one million trips and traveled an estimated two million miles.

    10-Apr-14 – The Chicago River’s movable bridges will go up and down 20 times this spring – four times in April, eight in May, and eight in June. The city announced the season’s bridge lift schedule on Wednesday.

    Along the main and south branches, the bridges are raised to allow recreational boat traffic to get from winter storage to Lake Michigan.

    Rebekah Scheinfeld, the new commissioner of Chicago Department of Transportation, called the bridge lifts “a local rite of spring” that marks the beginning of the boating season.

    According to Scheinfeld, the schedule is worked out between the city and local storage yards to accommodate the boats with the least impact on street traffic in downtown Chicago.

    There are 27 bridges between Ashland Avenue and Lake Shore Drive. During a boat run, each bridge is raised one at a time. Each lift takes about 8-12 minutes.
