Demolition has begun at 901 N Halsted Street on Goose Island for Halsted Pointe, a multi-phase, mixed-use development by Onni Group. The development will replace the existing Greyhound bus terminal and introduce the island’s first high-rise skyscraper.
Situated at the southern end of Goose Island, Halsted Pointe will feature four towers complete with activated podiums, a plaza, and new central roads. The development also plans an extension of the riverwalk and a pedestrian bridge connecting to the Montgomery Ward complex on the opposite bank of the river’s east branch.
The first tower, standing at 504 feet, will have 46 stories. A 58-foot podium will wrap around its base, accommodating parking and 20,000 sq. ft. of retail space. The tower will contain 460 apartments, with 20% designated as affordable. The units will range from studios to four-bedroom apartments, and amenities will include a pool deck, lounge, fitness center, and game room.
Future phases will add over 2,100 units in towers of 30, 45, and 65 stories. Also planned is a 28-story, 300-key hotel, 1,470 parking spaces, and 100,000 sq. ft. of public space, along with additional retail outlets.
Onni Group acquired the Greyhound site this February after experiencing delays. Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture and Hitchcock Design Group will oversee the architectural and landscaping aspects of the project.
A full groundbreaking expected in the last quarter of this year. The first tower is anticipated to welcome residents by 2025.
