Construction is now filling out for the first floor of The Saint Grand, a new 22-story mixed-use development at 535 N St Clair Street in Streeterville. Mavrek Development, GW Properties, Luxury Living, and Double Eagle Development have formed a joint partnership to develop the new structure, which will rise 238 feet. The building will feature 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 designed by Harken Interiors located on the top two floors of the podium, with amenities such as an outdoor yoga studio, a sprawling lounge area, a fitness center, and a co-working space for tenants. The fifteen-story residential tower component will contain layouts ranging from studios up to two-bedroom apartments, with additional resident amenities including a lounge and rooftop pool on the top level.
NORR is responsible for the overall design, which will comprise of a curtain wall facade made up of a dark metal and glass, with the residential volume set back from the podium.
The building will offer 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.

22 story building, not 15…
Chicago keeps failing by putting up smaller buildings. Oh that’s because the city can’t afford any tall buildings
What an odd comment.
Lol, you obviously don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m guessing you can’t afford to put more thought into your stupid comment?
Maybe it’s a good thing because the city is focused on filling up so many of these parking lot eyesores that have been plaguing the downtown area instead of just randomly sticking a super tall that doesn’t really fit the aesthetic of the Chicago skyline. Maybe the demand for building super talls all over the place just isn’t there. What’s your solution to this? Have you done any thinking or research on this?
City finances have nothing to do with private developments. Also, supertalls are a dying breed. I expect New York to be the only city where it is common once this Miami building boom dies off. I prefer 10 good developments over 1 tacky supertall that sucks up all the demand while having a lifeless base.
Why so much retail in virtually every building ? Have developers and the city not heard of on line shopping decimating brick and mortar retail ?
Worried that too many empty storefronts being created where there is no need or desire.
I like an excess of walkable retail. If there is more of it, the rent will be cheaper. Wait…are you the same George who whines about parking garages?
Odd they didn’t go taller but oh well. Interiors look nice at least.
There are so many nimby’s in this city who cry to alderman about heights of buildings that developers are just trying to go the minimal route… This site could of easily been something around 50 stories…Funny how the city that used to have so much pride in its skyscrapers now has people complaining about building heights
