Construction is imminent for a 12-story office development at 237 N Aberdeen Street in Fulton Market, as fencing is installed and foundations permits are approved. The lot, also addressed as 1043 W Fulton Market, is bound between N Aberdeen Street and N Carpenter Street. The Morgan CTA L station, serviced by the Green and Pink Lines, can be accessed by a three-minute walk. The 8 CTA bus route, accessed at the Halsted & Fulton Market stop, is a seven-minute walk from the property. Fulton Street Companies is in charge of the development.
Designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, the development will consist of a 12-story office building with 132,000 square feet of space and a six-story boutique office building with an additional 46,000 square feet of space. Each portion will have ground-floor retail space. The project will replace two single-story buildings and a parking lot, rising 147 feet into the air. The development was originally planned to hold a hotel in the larger 12-story portion, but the hotel portion was eliminated as part of a minor change request to the existing Planned Development for the site.
Renderings show masonry facades on the prospective developments, each featuring loft-style window treatments that harken to the industrial aesthetic of the neighborhood. The taller 12-story component integrates a diamond-patterned glass and metal exterior into its overall design. The setback that delineates the two structures includes a ninth-floor outdoor terrace.
Since our last update, photos show the clearing of the site and installation of a new construction fence. Foundation permits were approved in late October. Permits allow for the construction of the foundations and basement of the building. Permits for the construction of the full building have not been filed or approved. Power Construction Company is in charge of construction for the project. No official timeline has been announced.
