they could open in november if they use pre-made rooms, similar to what they do on cruise ships.  even then, they'd have to have an army of workers.  i wonder if they'll try to do something about the view of the other vacant buildings.

Personally, I think November 2008 is do-able, if they get to a more typical construction pace.

I talked with someone who works at the Loop's HQ and he said that the City backed out on incentives for them so the Loop was not coming in that space.  Originally it was to be a franchise owned by the same guys who own Chew but they have apparently moved on.

A parking garage is proposed next door, as a part of the One12 development.  When that goes up, the view of the vacant buildings will be gone.
