Structural work has reached the eighth floor for 1045 W Fulton Market, a 12-story mixed-use development rising in West Loop‘s burgeoning Fulton Market district. The 12-story project is a joint venture between Fulton Street Companies and Intercontinental Real Estate.
Reaching 147 feet in height and spanning 150,000 square feet, the boutique-style building will house ground-level retail and offices on the above floors. According to an overview by the real estate brokerage firm Madison Rose, individual office floor plates are set to range between 10,000 and 14,000 square feet. Tenants will also have access to a common terrace space on the ninth floor, bike storage, and an underground garage with 35 parking spaces.
Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is behind the design, which blends industrial inspiration from the surrounding neighborhood with a modern finish. The building’s massing will be accentuated by the terraced ninth-floor setback. This setback will also delineate facade’s materials, with the bottom eight floors primarily wrapped in brick and loft-styled windows and the top four floors clad in a glass and metal curtain wall.
The transit-centric edifice will offer tenants, retailers, and shoppers service for various buses, including Route 8 via kan eight-minute walk east. Also within an eight-minute walk is Route 20, with its nearest stops located to the south at Madison & Aberdeen. For the CTA L, both the Green and Pink Lines are available at Morgan station via a four-minute walk southeast. Those looking to board the Blue Line will find Grand station via a 13-minute walk northeast.
Power Construction is the general contractor. Since Chicago YIMBY’s last article in early March, work has progressed at an average rate of more than one floor per week. With a topping out likely in the next couple months, a full opening is expected for the fourth quarter of this year.
