Structural work has progressed to the fifth level at 812 W Adams Street in West Loop, where a new seven-story mixed-use development by Luxe Suites Chicago is under construction. Upon completion, the development will feature 80 for-rent apartments and 4,200 square feet of retail, replacing the three low-rise buildings that previously occupied the southernmost part of the block.
Axios Architects and Consultants have designed the new building, which involves a multi-shade masonry cladding, bay window protrusions, and private glass and metal cantilevered balconies.
There will be 27 parking spots available on-site, as well as multiple public options nearby. The closest bus service is one block away and offers Routes 8 and 20 buses. Also seven minutes south from the building lies UIC-Halsted station for CTA Blue Line transit, 14 minutes northwest to Morgan station for a Green or Pink Line service.
Structures Construction LLC has been appointed as the general contractor for the project, yet a full construction timeline has yet to be revealed. Completion appears possible in the latter half of 2023.
