Pow! If the ads for X / O Condominiums are bringing sexy back, the marketers for R+D659 are creating a whole new cast of comic book characters. The development’s construction site at 659 W Randolph St in the West Loop is surrounded by illustrations of characters who, instead of leaping tall buildings in a single bound, aim to buy condos in a tall building. The 17-story R+D659 has 237 condos, priced roughly from the $230s to the $700s.
