Final facade work continues to progress for a new high rise at 225 North Elizabeth Street in Fulton Market. The 28-story mixed-use tower is a joint effort between Sterling Bay and Ascentris and is situated at the intersection of Fulton and Elizabeth Streets.
Standing at a height of 314 feet, the building will house 350 apartment units and 10,000 square feet of retail space. In accordance with Chicago’s Affordable Requirements Ordinance, 70 units (20 percent of the total) will be designated as affordable.
Amenities encompass a lounge, a fitness center, and two green rooftop decks featuring outdoor kitchens, fire pits, dining areas, a swimming pool, and a dog run. For parking, the building will offer spaces for 95 vehicles and 199 bicycles.
The architectural design by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture integrates floor-to-ceiling windows with dark metal paneling, creating a gridded pattern. The building’s rectangular profile is marked by a penthouse amenity enclosure on its eastern side.
Transportation options within a 10-minute walk include bus service for Routes 8, 20, 56, and 65, as well as Morgan station, which services the Green and Pink Lines.
McHugh Construction is overseeing the construction with a budget set at $110 million. The project’s completion is anticipated for the first half of next year, with first residential move-ins targeted for March.
