Ceiling mural artwork designed by Emmy Star Brown (@emmystarbrown) has been spotted along the underside of The Dylan, a 30-story mixed-use tower at 160 N Morgan Street in Fulton Market. The project, a collaboration between Sterling Bay and Ascentris, topped out at its 350-foot height earlier this year. The plan is for 282 rental apartments above a 2,657 square-foot retail space.
The Dylan is slated to provide a range of floor plan options, from studios to two-bedroom apartments, along with 28 units designated as affordable housing. The developers have also committed $2 million to the neighborhood opportunity fund and an additional $5.26 million to a mixed-income residential project in the South Loop.
The amenities of The Dylan include an outdoor deck on the fifth floor, an indoor fitness center, and a lounge. There will be 89 parking spaces in a podium garage and 153 bicycle parking spaces.
Designed by bKL Architecture, the tower’s design incorporates a rectangular massing split into two offset volumes. The facade features floor-to-ceiling windows, red metallic paneling, and dark gray metal accents. The southern section of the tower extends over the podium, with the now-underway abstract art piece along the underside of the overhanging section. This overhang is supported by prominent Y-shaped columns.
The site has access to several public transportation options in close proximity. Within a 10-minute walk, residents can reach multiple Divvy bike stations and bus transit options for Routes 8 and 20. Additionally, Morgan station, serving the Green and Pink Lines, is just a minute’s walk to the north.
Walsh Construction has served as the general contractor, with a reported total cost of $82 million. The target for completion and opening is anticipated for this summer.
