Another West Loop condo building

Looks like another new building is going to impede our view.

YoChicago | Catalyst condos coming to Chicago's West Loop neighborhood : Urban R2 Development Co. today released some details about the development, planned at the northeast corner of Washington and DesPlaines.
The 22-story high-rise, designed by Lucien LaGrange Architects, will have 212 one- two- and three-bedroom condos, and several penthouses. Pre-construction prices range from the $220s to the $860s. ... Hopping on the spa trend growing at downtown high-rises, Catalyst will have a 3,800-square-foot spa with exercise and massage facilities. Other building features include a meeting area, a party room and 31 retail spaces - one of which will be occupied by a 24-hour Walgreens.

A garage on the second through fourth floors will hold 224 parking spots, one for each condo and two for each penthouse. The units on the fifth floor will have access to landscaped outdoor terraces on the garage's roof. All of the units either have terraces or balconies.

Well, as a bonus, the fundamentalists won't be able to hold anti-abortion rallies outside this clinic anymore.

Oh wait, this parking lot is on the northwest corner of Washington and Desplaines, not the northeast, so maybe they will be able to still hold their neo-pagan rallies. Hmmm.
