Preliminary facade work can be seen at North Wells Capital’s 16-story, mixed-use building located at 311 W Huron Street in River North. This structure, which now stands 226 feet tall, is primarily designated for office spaces, with Spins set to occupy 48,000 square feet within the top three floors.
Occupying 153,000 square feet, the tower will be primarily occupied by Class A office space, along with an 8,500-square-foot area for retail. Each of the office floors spans an area of 16,250 square feet with ceiling heights of over 12 feet. All office floors will incorporate floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces, and tenants will have access to various amenities on the top floor, including a fitness center, lounge area, and rooftop deck. Furthermore, the building plans include an integrated garage that can accommodate 137 vehicles at the tower’s base.
Designed by NORR, the building’s exterior will exhibit a blend of glass and metal panels. Unique design elements include a curved penthouse and a kinetic wall on the podium, composed of movable metal pieces that react to wind. The main facade is characterized by dark metal framing around the floor-to-ceiling glass panels.
The building’s location offers close access to multiple public transit options. The Chicago station, just one block north, services the CTA Brown and Purple Lines. Additionally, Route 37 bus services can be accessed via a five-minute walk north to Chicago & Franklin, while Route 66 service is available via four-minute walk northeast.
ARCO Murray is responsible for the project’s construction, which is expected to complete by this coming September.
