Construction has officially begun for a new 21-story mixed-use building at 1101 W Van Buren Street in West Loop. This latest West Loop addition will replace a previously vacant be situated between two existing apartment buildings in West Loop. Planned by Pizzuti Development, the project will bring 298 new apartment units atop ground-level retail.
Amenities within the building will include a co-working area, a game room, and bike storage. Additionally, a retail section will be situated in the northeast corner, with the residential entrance located just east along Van Buren Street.
The high rise designed by Goettsch Partners will have a glass curtain wall enveloping its rectangular massing, with hundreds of dark recessed windows. Its roofline will be offset into two distinctive heights, while the first floor will be lined with exposed brick columns along Van Buren Street.
Parking will include 82 on-site spaces. The closest CTA Blue Line at Racine station can be accessed in five minutes on foot, while bus stops for Routes 7, 60, and 126 are all within walking distance.
Power Construction is serving as the general contractor. Currently, an anticipated completion date is not yet known.
