According to Curbed, West Addison Development purchased the Wrigleyville property in 2018 for $8.9 million. Chicago Construction News reported that developer is now building a Planet Granite, set to house both a fitness and bouldering center. On-site parking will be available for 20 vehicles.
Plans include retail on the ground floor, whose tenants will be able to access terraces created by three offset volumes. The design also includes tall, open floor-to-ceiling windows along the facade. Along with the windows, the exterior will vary between charcoal-colored metal paneling and a more bronze-toned paneling. Hirsch MPG is serving as the architect.
The site lies near the intersection of two major bus lines along W Addison Street for Route 152 and Route 22 for North Clark Street. Additional access within a 15-minute walk includes Broadway & Addison to the east for the northwest/southeast Route 36, and Ashland & Addison to the west for the north/south Route 9.
For the CTA L, the Red Line can be accessed at Addison station just a block east. The Purple and Brown lines can be found slightly further to the north at Sheridan station and to the southwest at Southport station, respectively.
Major commercial corners along Southport, Clark, Halsted, and Broadway also occupy the area, while the Lake Shore is available within a 25-minute walk east.
Full building permits issued in May show the reported construction cost as $11 million. Summit Design & Build, LLC will serve as the general contractor for the 65-foot-tall, 58,000-square-foot building. 1111 W Addison Street is on target to be completed in 2021.
