Since YIMBY’s September update, glass has steadily enclosed most of the remaining floors at 300 N Michigan Avenue, a 47-story skyscraper that recently topped out in the northeast corner of The Loop. Developers Magellan Development Group and Sterling Bay have planned a mix of retail in the base, a 280-key CitizenM hotel on the sixth through 15th floors, and residential apartments on the 17th through 45th floors.
As far as amenities, the development will come with a hotel amenity deck on the fourth floor, as well as a private rooftop deck for residents on the 46th floor. On-site parking will yield just 22 vehicle spaces and storage for 48 bikes.
The edifice will rise 523 feet to its pinnacle, taking on a contemporary glass design by bKL Architecture. The glass currently enveloping the tower is Vision Glass, whose mullion patterns change according to the interior programming.
Given its central location within the downtown Chicago area, 300 N Michigan will offer a range of public transportation options, such as bus access for Routes 3, 6, 20, 26, 66, 124, 143, 146, 147, 148, 151, 157, 850, 851, and 855, all located at the adjacent intersection of Michigan & South Water.
Meanwhile, for the CTA L, all lines can be found within a 10-minute walk. The closest of these lines are the Brown, Green, Orange, Pink, and Purple Lines via a five-minute walk southwest to State/Lake station. Anyone looking to board the Metra will also find Millennium station via a four-minute walk south.
Linn-Mathes Inc is serving as the general contractor, while Adjustable Concrete has served as the concrete contractor. An October article by Urbanize reported an estimated construction cost of $250 million, with first move-ins expected for June 2022.
