This week, foundation permits were issued for an 18-story co-living development at 633 S LaSalle Street in South Loop‘s Printer’s Row District. The Collective, a London-based developer, is behind the 162,000-square-foot project, which will house 117 apartments with a total of 381 beds.
The units will be arranged so that each resident lives in a private furnished bedroom that connects to a shared common area. Rent will be all-inclusive, with utilities, furniture, and linen services integrated into the monthly costs. Residents will also find various amenities such as a co-working space and an indoor/outdoor rooftop amenity deck with a fitness center and lounge.
At roughly 200 feet in height, the building has been designed by FitzGerald Associates Architects and Berkelhamer Architects. The mixed-tone facade is made up of a white and charcoal brick, along with dark metal accents and large loft-styled windows.
While there will be no on-site parking, there will be a bike room along with several nearby public transit options. Bus transit within a five-minute walk includes stops for Routes 2, 6, 22, 24, 29, 36, 62, and 146. The closest CTA L stations, meanwhile, comprise of the Blue Line at LaSalle station via a four-minute walk north, as well as the Red Line at Harrison station via a six-minute walk east.
Clark Construction will serve as general contractor for the build, with this most recent permit listing the foundation phase at a reported cost of $525,000. Currently, an updated completion date has not been revealed.
