Exterior work is wrapping up for 800 W Fulton Market, an 18-story office building located at the northeastern corner of West Loop‘s Fulton Market. Thor Equities has developed the 300-foot-tall edifice, helping to extend Downtown’s density westward into the former meatpacking district.
The building will house over 430,000 square feet of office space, 35,000 square feet of retail, and various dining options. The tower will also host an array of amenities, including a two-story open lobby, a fitness center, a conference center, a penthouse lounge, and a rooftop deck.
Designed by Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill, the massing tapers via a series of triangular setbacks with amenity terrace spaces. The facade combines a glass curtain wall alongside brickwork and metal trusses, blending the industrial style of the surrounding buildings with the features of a contemporary office block.
The transit-oriented development includes 36 parking spaces and 150 bike slots. Tenants will find southbound bus service for Route 8 at the adjacent intersection of Halsted & Fulton Market, while northbound service is a two-minute walk south at Halsted & Lake. Other routes within a 10-minute walking radius include Route 56 to the east, Route 65 to the north, and Route 20 to the south.
Tenants will also find CTA L access via Morgan station, with service for the Green and Pink Lines and located a five-minute walk southwest. The Blue Line’s Grand station also lies a seven-minute walk north.
Lendlease has served as the general contractor, with an anticipated opening expected for this coming spring.
