Designed by Lamar Johnson Collaborative, the boutique glass high-rise yields 100,000 square feet of usable space. The programming includes 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, three floors of parking above, then office space on the remaining five through 12 floors of Fulton East.
The design features a textured glass curtain wall with dark metal mullions dividing sets of highly reflective windows. Combined with a wooden secondary facade around the base and south face, as well as an intricately-adorned rooftop deck, the development brings a dynamic addition to the rapidly developing Fulton Market corridor.
In addition to the rooftop deck, each floor includes an exterior balcony measuring 243 square feet, a rare feature for a primarily office block. Build outs will include a variety of customizable options to reflect the tailored and evolving office space needs of the current market. Each office floor plate will occupy just over 10,000 square feet of space.
The site of the building is located less than a block south of the Fulton Market Street, with bus route 8’s Halsted & Fulton Market stop a four-minute walk northeast. CTA L access includes a three-minute walk southwest to the Green and Pink Lines’ Morgan station, as well as a nine-minute walk northeast to the Blue Line’s Grand station.
Since YIMBY’s last update, facade work is now complete on the ground floor, which now shows leasing advertising for both the office and retail portions. Clayco is the general contractor for Fulton East, whose official completion and opening are likely imminent.
