It is the second smallest of 42 precincts in the 42nd Ward but on Tuesday it had the ward’s fourth biggest turnout. (Click on image to view larger version.)

    25-Feb-15 – Rahm Emanuel may not have had enough votes to avoid a runoff election for Chicago mayor on April 7 but he decisively won downtown Chicago’s 42nd Ward on Tuesday.

    Emanuel received 73.21 percent of the vote in the municipal general election, distantly followed by Jesus “Chuy” Garcia with 16.72 percent.

    On the question of paid leave for workers, 64 percent of voters said “yes” and 36 percent said “no.”

    On the question of domestic abuse treatment, 85 percent voted “yes” and 15 percent voted “no.”

    On the question of campaign finance reform, 77 percent voted “yes” and 23 percent voted “no.”

    The ward achieved a 27 percent voter turnout, with 31,309 registered voters and of those, 8,556 voting.

    City Clerk Susana Mendoza, City Treasurer Kurt Summers, and 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly ran unopposed. Reilly still got 6,844 votes from his ward.

    12-Feb-15 – About 20 prospective concessionaires used their imaginations on Tuesday during a tour of the Riverwalk, still weeks away from opening. Led by Chicago Department of Transportation, the first public tour showed business owners and managers the new interior arcade spaces between Clark Street and State Street and existing spaces east of State Street.

    Many from the group attended a pre-bid conference on February 5 with the city’s Department of Fleet and Facility Management. They were scheduled to visit the Riverwalk after the conference but the tour was rescheduled due to cold weather.

    The group included representatives of Goose Island Brewery, Chicago Electric Boat Company, Urban Kayaks, and a bicycle tour business.

    The spaces are only about ten feet deep, which would make a restaurant business challenging. Other issues, noted by people who took the tour, include diesel fumes from boats docked too close and restrooms that are too far away.

    The spaces offer a “great new perspective of the river,” says Dan Reynolds, general manager of Dick’s Last Resort, “and it only can help to get the river cleaner with hopefully so many people seeing it up close.”

    The city is looking for food and beverage, recreational, cultural, and educational concessions and it is planning on operators being in business this year. Prospective concessionaires have until March 9 to submit their bids. Three blocks of the Riverwalk, from State Street west to LaSalle Street, will open to the public in March.

    13-Feb-15 – A new advisory council will help newly elected Governor Bruce Rauner with technology issues. Rauner was at 1871, on the 12th floor of Merchandise Mart, on Friday to announce the Innovate Illinois Advisory Council.

    It was not Rauner’s first visit to the technology incubator but his first as governor. He has known 1871 CEO Howard Tullman since about 1981 when Rauner’s venture capital firm invested in one of Tullman’s earliest companies.

    Before introducing Rauner to reporters, Tullman announced Chicago had been declared by the consulting firm Accenture to have the sixth most technology jobs in the nation.

    “We have about 375,000 tech jobs just in the Chicagoland area,” he said. “We’re now ahead of Seattle. We’re ahead of San Francisco. So we’re kicking.”

    For Rauner, who says he is “personally, strongly committed to the technology sector and growing Illinois’s economy through innovation and new ideas,” it is not good enough.

    “We’re already doing pretty well but we can do a lot better,” said Rauner. “I’m a competitive son of a gun. I want Illinois doing the best. I want our technology sector booming. I don’t want to be number six, I want to be number one.”

    Led by venture capitalist Mark Glennon and Laura Frerichs, director of Research Park, a tech incubator at University of Illinois, the Innovate Illinois Advisory Council will advise the governor’s office about the state’s technology sector. It will be comprised of leaders from different backgrounds, including 1871’s Tullman. Its first meeting will be at 1871 this spring.

    Rauner toured 1871 and met with some of its start-up companies. He was also next door for the official opening of MATTER, the health care industry version of 1871.

    19-Feb-15 – Smoke from a trash chute sent firefighters and numerous Chicago Fire Department vehicles to Marina City on Thursday.

    (Above) This was all resident Bill Edlebeck saw in the circular 40th floor hallway of Marina City’s west tower at around noon. (Click on images to view larger versions.)

    West tower resident Bill Edlebeck says the smoke was “too thick to see through.”

    “When I first smelled the smoke I ran around the hallway knocking on and feeling doors for heat,” he said. “By the time I got back to my apartment it was scary difficult to breathe and impossible to see.”

    He went out on his 40th floor balcony and called 911 but help was already on the way.

    “It’s not like I felt unsafe in the building – Bertrand Goldberg saw to that,” said Edlebeck, referring to the architect of the concrete towers. “Not being able to get hold of anyone in the [building management] office, not knowing if they even know what’s going on up here and to what extent, and knowing that I wouldn’t be able to get to the stairs and down was the unnerving part.”

    He said while fire alarms were sounding in the west tower, he was disappointed with the announcements over the building’s public address system. He says, “The building failed at communication.”

    “Nothing big” is how Chicago Fire Department described the report of smoke on an upper floor. Spokesperson Larry Langford told Loop North News, “All units returned quickly.”

    Signs above the trash chutes at Marina City warn residents “not to discard hot coals or burning materials” and that “fines of $500 or more apply.”

    12-Feb-15 – “LondonHouse” will be the name of the hotel being constructed at Michigan Avenue & Wacker Drive and it will open in spring 2016.

    Oxford Capital Group, LLC, owner, developer, and manager of the hotel, made the announcement on Thursday.

    The “luxury lifestyle hotel” will include a 22-story addition Oxford describes as an “architecturally synchronized Modernist glass tower.” Built on a former parking lot, it will account for 80 of the hotel’s 425 rooms.

    The new tower on Wacker Drive will be the main entrance to the hotel. An arrival lobby will lead to a larger lobby and bar on the second floor. The hotel will include two floors of “upscale retail,” 25,000 square feet of meeting space, a spa, and a fitness center.

    On top of the original building, the cupola will be converted to rooftop dining and outdoor event space.

    The $84.1 million renovation of the 91-year-old London Guarantee Building has been in progress since summer 2013. The building permit for the addition was issued on December 23, 2014.

    The London Guarantee Building once had a jazz club called London House. Oxford’s CEO, John Rutledge, says the name “is the perfect choice for this most unique hotel.”

    Goettsch Partners is the architectural firm. The interior design by Simeone Deary Design Group, says Oxford, “speaks to the building’s roots with the use of historic detail, while adopting the progressive thinking of the 1920s to create modern and chic accents.”

    The guestroom design will be “clean, sleek, and elegant.” Modern furniture with lavish upholstering will pay “homage to the opulence of the 1920s.”

    LondonHouse is Oxford’s 11th hotel project in the Chicago area. The real estate firm also developed The Langham, Hotel Cass, Hotel Felix, and The Godfrey hotels in River North.

    With investment advisors Angelo, Gordon & Co., Oxford bought The London Guarantee Building on July 29, 2013, reportedly paying $57 million.

    Trump International Hotel & Tower has received the highest rating – five stars – from Forbes Travel Guide. The rating, announced on Friday, was given to both the hotel and the hotel’s restaurant, Sixteen.

    According to Forbes, Trump is the best hotel in Chicago.

    Formerly Mobil Travel Guide, Forbes Travel Guide has been rating hotels, restaurants, and spas since 1958. Anonymous teams of inspectors evaluate properties against 800 standards.
