Photos taken yesterday show construction mockups and other equipment on the site of Fulton Market‘s 330 N Green Street, in preparation of the future 18-story office building. The structure will replace a previously-demolished two-story commercial edifice, adding 670,418 square feet of total floor space to the pool of new office developments rising in the West Loop neighborhood.
The site is located adjacently south of the railroad serviced by the North Central Service and the Milwaukee District heavy rail lines. Bus availability includes route 8’s Halsted & Fulton stop, a seven-minute walk southeast, while the CTA L can be accessed via the Green and Pink Lines’ Morgan station, a four-minute walk south. Less than a three-minute walk south is the main Fulton Market corridor, containing a high density of offices, retail, and other commercial space.
The developer of the 1.4-acre site, Sterling Bay, is also developing other projects in the area, such as 333 N Green Street adjacently east.
Renderings by Skidmore Owings & Merrill show a contemporary facade lining the simple box structure, with pronounced masonry columns and mullions dividing the glass curtain wall. Floor slabs are also behind the glass, providing additional vertical continuity on the exterior. Above the darker stone base of the building sits its most striking architectural feature: a five-floor open-air lounge deck extending from the floor’s interior amenity space. This deck faces south towards Fulton Market with wide views of the continuously developing neighborhood. Sterling Bay’s website also mentions large, open interior spaces with substantial natural light, giving tenants a canvas for a wide range of potential build outs. Other features within the development include an extensive fitness center with paddle courts, as well as common co-working space.
With demolition complete as well as fencing and equipment on the site, foundation work appears poised to commence soon. No official completion date for the project has been listed.
