The exterior walls are now being installed at HUGO, a two-building mixed-use project by LG Development in River North. Located at 751 N Hudson Avenue and 411 W Chicago Avenue, the pair of nine-story structures will encompass a total of 230,000 square feet of floor space. This project will bring a total of 227 new apartments to the neighborhood, as well as 19,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The two buildings will be situated close to one another, separated by an existing two-story, masonry low rise.
Residents of 751 N Hudson Avenue and 411 W Chicago Avenue will have access to a variety of amenities. 751 N Hudson Avenue will provide 134 residences with a fitness center, a rooftop lounge and deck, a dog run, and a co-working area. Additionally, the building’s second floor will include a pool deck with cabanas, grilling stations, and fire pits. The slightly smaller 411 W Chicago Avenue will offer 93 residences with a second-level sundeck with an outdoor kitchen and fire pits.
The architecture firm NORR has designed the metal and masonry facades of both buildings with dark metal accents and private recessed balconies for select units. At 126 feet tall, the development will further enhance the increasing density of the Chicago Avenue.
A total of 108 parking spaces will be available across both buildings, with six of them allocated for surface parking to serve the retail component. The closest bus stop for Route 66 is located at the intersection of Chicago and Hudson, and Route 37 is within a two-minute walk east. Furthermore, the Brown and Purple Line service at Chicago Station can be accessed within a five-minute walk eas.
The completion of the $100 million project is currently estimated to take place in the third quarter of 2023, with LG Construction acting as the general contractor.
