Bank forecloses on never-built luxury condo tower
The Ruins was a planned downtown luxury condo tower with a heliport that never materialized.
Schaumburg was behind several proposed condo projects at that time.
The Ruins was going to be a $48 million, 23-story tower overlooking the Trinity River on downtown's western edge. Planned were 49 units, averaging about 3,500 square feet. Prices were going to run about $250 a square foot.
The Ruins was based on postmodern architecture influenced by ancient Roman ruins and was a sister project to the Summit Ruins, a project Schaumburg had planned at Seventh Street and Summit Avenue years before.
