Construction is ascending rapidly for 300 N Michigan Avenue, a 47-story mixed-use tower located in the northeast corner of The Loop. Co-developed by Magellan Development Group and Sterling Bay, the 523-foot-tall skyscraper is set set to house a mix of 25,000 square feet of retail, a 280-key citizenM hotel, and 289 residential units above.
On-site amenities will include hotel amenity space on the fourth floor and a fitness center on the sixth floor. Residents will also have their own amenities available on the 46th floor, with a terrace offering sweeping views of Millennium Park and the lake.
Designed by bKL Architecture, the glass rectangular building will feature prominent structural trusses near its base. Photos show these elements having just been installed facing out onto Michigan Avenue.
Parking will offer 22 spaces and 48 bike spots within a below grade-garage facility. Occupants and visitors will also have access to a variety of nearby bus options, including Routes 3, 6, 20, 26, 66, 124, 143, 146, 147, 148, 151, 157, 850, 851, and 855 all available from the adjacent corner of Michigan & South Water.
As far as CTA L access, the Brown, Green, Orange, Pink, and Purple Lines can all be found at State/Lake station, less than a five-minute walk southwest. The Lake subway station for the Red Line and the Washington station for the Blue Line are also available within a three-block radius of the future tower.
Tenants and visitors will be in the middle of many points of interest, including Grant Park to the southeast, the river and riverwalk less than a block north, and a host of shopping and dining in all directions.
