Construction is approaching full height for a 19-story mixed-use building at 210 N Aberdeen Street in Fulton Market. LG Development Group has planned the 214-foot-tall structure to be situated on an L-shaped site. This structure will feature 10,700 square feet of retail space and 363 apartment units.
This project will provide a variety of housing options, including 73 affordable studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units. Additionally, the development will feature a range of indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, as well as 102 vehicular parking spaces and bike parking.
The design of the new building by NORR is characterized by two perpendicular wings atop a three-story podium. The facade is composed of tan masonry cladding around the podium and center segment of the tower, while a glass and metal curtain wall wraparound the outer corners of each wing.
As part of the project, LG Development will restore the Arthur Harris Building, which is situated adjacent to the new construction. The outer facade and gabled roof of the building will remain intact, while the interior will be subject to extensive renovation. Furthermore, a glass walkway will be installed to connect the Arthur Harris Building to the rest of the development, thereby forming part of the retail component.
The area surrounding the building is serviced by a variety of bus routes. To the north, Route 65 is available; to the east, Route 8; to the south, Route 20; and to the west, Routes 9 and X9. Those seeking access to the closest CTA Green and Pink Line service can do so at Morgan Station, which is a mere three-minute walk east.
Power Construction has been selected as the general contractor for a $140 million construction project, with the work scheduled to be completed by 2024.
