Exterior cladding is climbing the final floors of Onni Group‘s Old Town Park Phase Three, located at 228 W Hill Street in Near North Side. With a pinnacle of 447 feet, the mixed-use tower ranks as the 20th tallest recent development in Chicago.
The 41-story tower will contain 456 apartments in the form of tower units and attached ground-level townhomes. Additional spaces will include offices and a sixth-floor amenity deck with an outdoor hot tub and heated pool, as well as an outdoor terrace with green space and lounge areas.
Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is the project architect, whose design for the third-phase tower includes a glass curtain wall, with long rows of balconies that include dividing walls between units. A metal ribbon-like element also wraps around the exterior.
Old Town Park’s masterplan also includes a pair of shorter 31 and 40-story towers, the first of which was completed in 2017 and the second earlier this year. Additionally, the existing nine-story Atrium Village complex has also been renovated and integrated into the plan.
Nearest bus access includes east and westbound stops at Division & Wells, located a four-minute walk northeast of the new construction. Residents and tenants can also find other buses in the vicinity, including Routes 22, 37, and 156. For the CTA L, subway service for the Red Line is available via a seven-minute walk northeast to Clark/Division station. Service for the Brown and Purple Lines can be found via an 11-minute walk south to Chicago station.
Onni Group is also serving as general contractor for the roughly $15 million tower project, with completion slated for next year.
