Lincoln Park 2520 and the Ritz-Carlton Residences aren't the only North Side sites with big construction cranes. Over the weekend we paid a visit to 929 W. Foster, the future site of the new Admiral at the Lake, a big senior living development in Edgewater. Instead of your standard box-shaped high-rise, Perkins+Will's plan calls for what looks like a cascade of five or six buildings, which should provide nice lake views for oldsters at virtually every level. Workers are still preparing the foundation for the taller parts of the development, and it looks like the four-story building that has been erected will be one of the shortest portions (they call it "the garden building" on the website). Want to see more construction photos? The Admiral website has a construction gallery that seems to be updated pretty regularly.
