Construction has reached the ninth floor for 1454 W Randolph Street, an 11-story residential building by Marquette Properties. Located at the western edge of West Loop, the development will house a total of 242 apartments, as well as lobby and amenity space for residents.

The planned amenity list includes a rooftop pool and deck area, a fitness center, an outdoor terrace on the second floor, and co-working spaces for residents. With Brininstool + Lynch as the project architect, the 135-foot-tall structure’s massing will involve two interconnected volumes atop a single podium. The exterior will be lined with a mix of metal, glass, and masonry, as well as the recessed private balconies to add further texture.
