As the 30th tallest construction project in Chicago’s year-end countdown and set to stand 155 feet in height, 140 N Ashland Avenue is now making headway in Near West Side. The 12-story building by Marquette Companies will attach to an existing five-story brick building, offering a total 210 rental apartments in addition to first-floor retail. At least 10 percent of the units will be affordable, while the remaining five percent will either be on- or off-site (yet to be indicated).

Exterior renovation work continues to take shape for the new Guinness Taproom and Brewery in Fulton Market. Owned by Fred Latsko, the former Pennsylvania Railroad Terminal Building at 375 N Morgan Street is being developed by Guinness as part of a deal that was finalized last year. Once a popular street art canvas, the converted beer hub will now contain a 10-barrel brewery, a pub, and a restaurant serving local chef cuisine.
The lower levels of the superstructure are taking shape for 360 N Green Street, a 24-story mixed-use tower at the northeast corner of Fulton Market. The 399-foot-tall tower is being developed by Sterling Bay directly east of the Guinness Brewery, already in progress.
The majority of the windows have now been installed for ZSD Corp‘s “Madison + Carpenter,” a six-story condominium building at 6 N Carpenter Street in West Loop. The residential structure will contain 13 units of either four- or five-bedroom floorplans. The site had previously contained a set of single-story masonry buildings that were demolished last year.
Facade installation is approaching completion for One Six Six, a 21-story mixed-use tower at 166 N Aberdeen Street in Fulton Market District. At 224 feet in height, the Greystar-developed high rise will give way to 224 rental apartments atop ground-level retail. The site was formerly home to a complex of two-story masonry buildings that included Fabbri’s sausage factory.
