A mid-rise tower proposed for the corner of Clark & Belmont has gone through yet another design change. This time instead of taking on a whole new look, the building's height has been lowered to eight stories. When it was first introduced in October, the tower featured a standard contemporary glass box aesthetic, and stood at 10 stories. A month later, the project received a complete redesign and another story, standing at 11 stories tall. However, in the lead up to the final community meeting for the development, the tower has lost some of its mojo and now stands at eight stories. If the $50 million project makes it past this next community meeting and is green-lit by the Chicago Plan Commission, it will ultimately feature 90 apartment units, parking for 39 vehicles and and two floors of retail space.
