This week a groundbreaking ceremony was held for The Saint Grand at 535 N St Clair Street in Streeterville. With Mavrek Development as the developer, the 238-foot-tall mixed-use structure will blend office space and 248 apartment units atop 45,000 square feet of commercial office space and 7,500 square feet of retail.
There will be Class A office spaces located on the top two floors of this podium and tenant amenities.
The fifteen-story residential tower component will contain floor plan types ranging from studios up to two-bedroom apartments. NORR was selected as the architectural firm of choice for this project, whose curtain wall facade is made up of a dark metal and glass.
Residents will have access to a range of amenities, such as an outdoor yoga studio, a sprawling lounge area, a fitness center, and a co-working space. There will also be a dog walk and a rooftop pool deck.
Transit options include 106 on-site parking spaces, 102 bike storage spots, and a three-minute walk to CTA bus lines such as Routes 2, 3, 26, 66, 120, 121, 143, 136, and 147). Additionally, the Red Line is available via a six-minute walk to Grand station.
“Breaking ground is the next exciting step on a project we’re eager to bring to completion, not only for our joint team of developers, but for the area and its residents as well,” said Adam Friedberg, managing partner at Mavrek Development. “The building has a direct focus on elevated wellness and is designed to highlight the elegance and sophistication of Streeterville, one of Chicago’s most vibrant communities.”
Lendlease is serving as the general contractor. A full completion of the structure is anticipated for 2024.
