The Chicago Plan Commission has approved plans for the mixed-use development at 1353 W Fulton Street in Fulton Market. Located on the corner with N Ada Street, the new high rise replaces an existing industrial building on the quickly-growing corridor that has seen numerous high-profile proposals including a 600-foot-tall tower in the last few months. Developer Shapack Partners has been working with SOM on the design of the structure, which has undergone a handful of updates since we originally covered its announcement late last year.
