What is different about the 1035 site is that zoning for a high rise is already in place through Planned Development number 867, which also includes the Automatic Lofts directly to the east. The big question is though, does the new design fit into the massing envelope of what was already previously planned and approved for that particular site? If not, this new design may need a zoning amendment that will surely bring a future debate in West Loop community meetings where new high rises tend to be hot button issues.
