The 43-story apartment tower at 900 W Randolph Street in Fulton Market is now one-third of its final height. Developer Related Midwest has planned for a total of 300 apartment units atop ground-floor retail.
Planned to rise 495 feet, this new West Loop skyscraper has been designed by Morris Adjmi Architects. The facade is made up of multi-story rows of metal arches, overlaid atop floor-to-ceiling glass windows. These welded metal pieces reflect the industrial context, with a contemporary twist. The exterior of the ground floor, meanwhile, anchors the design with a face brick cladding.
The units will range in size from studios to three-bedrooms. Out of the total on-site apartment count, 20 percent will be designated as affordable under ARO guidelines. While the full scope of amenities has not yet been revealed, the sprawling terrace space atop the podium indicates a major outdoor component.
There will be 75 parking spaces integrated into a podium garage, alongside a swath of other transit options. Most notably is bus service for Routes 8 and 20 within a 10-minute walk, as well as Green and Pink Line CTA L service via a two-minute walk northwest to Morgan station.
LR Contracting Company is serving as the general contractor to this major $200 addition, with work expected to wrap up in 2024.
