One Six Six, a new 21-story mixed-use development in West Loop‘s Fulton Market, is nearing completion as its facade installation wraps up. Located at 166 N Aberdeen Street, the Greystar-developed project replaces the former Fabbri Sausage Factory with 224 rental units above ground-floor retail.
Standing 241 feet, the podium design by Solomon Cordwell Buenz pays homage to the site’s industrial past with a brick base that echoes the original factory building. Meanwhile, the tower portion feature a glass curtain wall with a dynamic pattern of bronze mullions. The building also incorporates sustainable features such as green roofs, energy-efficient systems, and bicycle parking.
The amenities at One Six Six include a rooftop deck with an outdoor pool, lounge areas, fire pits, and grills; a fitness center with yoga and spin studios; a coworking space with private offices and conference rooms; a club room with a kitchen, bar, fireplace, and billiards; and a pet spa. The units range from studios to three-bedrooms and offer finishes such as quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, walk-in closets, and in-unit washers and dryers.
One Six Six is also well-connected to public transportation options such as the CTA Green and Pink Lines at Morgan station which is only two blocks away. Several bus routes also serve the area including Route 8 and 20 within close walking distance.
Lendlease is serving as the general contractor, with an opening date targeting this coming spring.

This is yet another bona-fide masterpiece. Chicago’s diverse utilization of glass is something to behold. You’d think that it would get monotonous at some point but it’s endlessly fascinating to see how many blue glass buildings can be erected in one city without ever failing to produce stunning, bold and innovative work. Bravo
It’s an architectural symphony indeed!
You really put the “um” in UnionMade. This building is no joy to look at but it is not unique to Chicago to see larger buildings clad in glass. Are there cities where this isn’t the case? Where on the globe (where buildings of this size are going up) is there a wider diversity of cladding materials? Are you also upset that most buildings of this size are being framed with steel beams or reinforced concrete? What the hell is your point?
You guys are replying to a troll bot. That’s not the real UnionMade smh
I think it’s the real guy. He was being trolled for making the same monotonous statements in post after post after post so now he’s beating them to the punch. It’s a form of pouting. Dollars to donuts this is the “@realUnionMade”.
I actually like it. We need to start putting shovels in the ground on all these approved projects. They won’t stick out so much then.
