Initial caisson work can be seen at the site of West Loop‘s 1020 W Randolph Street, where L3 Capital has planned a five-story mixed-use development. At 22,000 square feet, this boutique retail and office edifice will accompany the recent wave of office developments popping up in the West Loop neighborhood.
Office floors will come with large industrial-styled windows, ornate common areas, a bike room with lockers and a repair station, as well as a 2,000-square-foot rooftop terrace.
The 69-foot-tall masonry structure will further establish the westward expansion along Randolph Street corridor. With its design by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, the facade will comprise of a dark red brick with accents and four-paned windows.
Bus transit in the vicinity can be found for Route 20 via a six-minute walk southeast to Madison & Morgan, as well as stops for Route 8 via a six-minute walk east. Meanwhile for the CTA L, the Green and Pink Lines can be found via a two-minute walk northeast to Morgan station.
With Precision Excavation having served as the wrecking contractor and W. E. O’Neil Construction as the general contractor, the project is expected to cost just over $10 million, according to permits. Completion is expected for later this year.
