Work has officially broken ground at 410 S Wabash Avenue in The Loop, where developer LMC has planned a 25-story mixed-use tower. The project is set to yield 8,000 square feet of ground-level retail and 344 apartments on the upper floors. These units will be divided into 220 studios, 60 one-bedrooms, 61 two-bedrooms, and three three-bedrooms.
The building will offer residents various amenities, beginning with a spacious lobby, coffee bar, and dog walk on the first floor. The fourth floor will house a pool deck with grilling stations and a fire pit, a fitness center, and a club room. Meanwhile, the 25th floor will contain a co-working space, an indoor lounge, and two outdoor terraces.
At 260 feet in height, the new tower has been envisioned by Antunovich Associates. The contemporary design involves a mix of floor-to-ceiling windows, what appear to be gray and white cement board panels, and a triangular cut-out that accentuates the corner entryway.
Parking will provide 103 vehicle spaces and storage for 137 bikes. The heavily transit-oriented development also lies amongst various bus options. Within just a single block, occupants and visitors will find stops for Routes 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 26, 28, 29, 126, 130, 143, 146, 147, 148, 850, 851, 855, and J14.
As far as the CTA L, closest service for the Brown, Orange, Pink, and Purple Lines is available at Harold Washington Library-State/Van Buren station, located a three-minute walk west. Those looking to board the Red Line, meanwhile, will find Jackson station via a six-minute walk northwest. Lastly, the closest station for the Green Line is a four-minute walk north.
The new construction complements another recent proposal located on the same block. The slightly taller 424 S Wabash Avenue will house both retail and a new 270-key Sonder hotel, and is expected to break ground in March of next year.
A new permit for 410 S Wabash was issued late last month to reinstate the original 2019 construction permit. This latest filing shows Power Construction as the general contractor. An anticipated completion date for the reportedly $23.7 million undertaking has not yet been announced.
