Just north of the Randolph & Aberdeen intersection in West Loop, Greystar Development’s 166 N Aberdeen Street can be seen rising past the second floor. The 21-story project involves a mixed-use package of ground-level retail and 224 total apartment dwellings. Greystar purchased this parcel, a former sausage factory, for $6 million from MCZ Development.
Of the on-site apartments, 24 will be designated as affordable under ARO guidelines, while another 24 will be situated off site. Greystar will also donate an additional $1.87 million to the Neighborhood Opportunity Fund.
The design by Solomon Cordwell Buenz includes a mix of floor-to-ceiling glass, copper-colored painted metal, and brick. The underlying shape of the building includes a carved-in amenity terrace on the 14th floor, as well as columns of recessed metal balconies.
Parking will come with 70 total spaces in the podium, while nearby bus stops can be found for Routes 8 and 20. Also nearby is the CTA L Green and Pink Lines at Morgan station via a five-minute walk northeast.
With all construction permits now issued, Lendlease is serving as the general contractor. Full completion is anticipated for 2023.
