YIMBY has recent construction photos of Onni Group‘s third and final tower, a 41-story mixed-use building in the Old Town Park development, a large site just east of Near North Side‘s Seward Park. Located at 1140 N Wells Street, the three-tower complex is developed by the Vancouver-based real estate company, which has built a series of other apartment buildings in the Near North Side area. Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is responsible for designing all three phases. Phase One consists of a 32-story residential high rise northeast of the third tower, while Phase Two is a 39-story mixed-use tower adjacent to the east of it.
Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture’s design for Phase Three features setbacks and balconies that add texture to the glass cubic volumes that make up the structure. Additionally, a dark ribbon of metal encases four portions of the facade for both the tower and podium.
Construction photos show the structure having reached the 41st floor, with only the crowning parapet left to complete. At its final height of 447 feet, Phase Three will be just two feet shy of Onni Group’s other topped-out tower, 369 W Grand Avenue in River North.
As reported by Curbed last year, the Phase Three building will host 456 residential units in the tower portion, offices and amenities in its podium, and a detached garage with 193 parking spaces.
Nearby bus routes includes a two-minute walk southwest to the Orleans & Hill stop and a four-minute walk northeast to the Division & Wells stop. Nearby CTA L access consists of Clark/Division station along the Red Line, a six-minute walk northeast. Seven-acre Seward Park is a two-minute walk northwest and the center of the entertainment-packed Rush & Division is an 11-minute walk east.
Construction is expected to reach completion in 2021.
