A tower crane permit has been issued for a new 18-story mixed-use building at 1044 W Van Buren Street in West Loop. Developed by Tandem, the building will yield 2,800 square feet of ground-level retail, 196 rental apartments, 70 on-site parking spaces, and 143 bike spaces.
Units will come with Tandem’s signature finishes, spacious layouts, and unobstructed views of the city. The amenity package will offer spaces such as a rooftop fitness center and yoga studio, a co-working lounge with private offices, a sky lounge and game room, along with an outdoor deck with a fire pit and grilling stations.
Antunovich Associates is the architect behind the 195-foot-tall edifice, whose rectangular massing will be lined with private overhanging balconies alongside bronze and glass facade. The interior design has been planned by Brianne Bishop Design.
Residents will find a swath of restaurants and retail to the north along various corridors such as Madison Street, Randolph Street, and Fulton Market, while also having close access to the downtown core. Not only is the site just north of 290, but also in close proximity to a range of public transit options. Bus transit can be found for Route 126 within close walking distance, while the nearest Blue Line L service is available via a five-minute walk to Racine station.
Tandem’s construction subsidiary, Tandem Construction, is serving as the general contractor, with the current crane phase tallying at $80,000. As of now, full construction permits have been filled but not yet issued. Tandem expects to deliver the development by spring of 2023.
