Construction topped out for a planned commercial addition at 732 W Randolph Street at the eastern end of Fulton Market District. This nine-story structure is being developed by Samuel Oliva, whose initiative expands on an existing commercial center known as “Randolph Office Center.” The existing buildings in this assemblage include an adjacent six-story office and retail building, as well as a 12-story building directly to the east, housing condominiums with flex commercial space.

Construction has now ascended past the 12th floor at 160 N Morgan Street, a 30-story mixed-use tower in Fulton Market District. At 350 feet in height, the new high rise by Sterling Bay and Ascentris will tower above the majority of the other buildings west of the Kennedy Expressway, making a significant mark on the growing West Loop skyline.
Cladding installation has started on a five-story residential structure located at 913 W School Street in Lake View. The Hageman Group plans to have a total of 22 apartments, which will include four studios, eight one-bedrooms, eight two-bedrooms, and two three-bedroom apartments. Nearly half of the residences will have outdoor access, in which four of the units will have balconies and another six will have terraces.
Updated renderings are currently making their way through zoning approvals as Pizzuti Development plans 1061 W Van Buren Street, a new 21-story mixed-use tower along the southern edge of West Loop. Officially addressed as 1011 W Van Buren Street, the project will be replacing a narrow vacant lot whose length runs west and east. Alongside completed towers like Avra West Loop and Landmark West Loop and other underway developments like 1044 W Van Buren and CA6, the new construction represents a growing node of high-density housing along the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290).
This week, YIMBY attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for 345 N Morgan Street, an 11-story mixed-use building in Fulton Market District. This new development features new ground-level retail topped by offices on the upper floors. Continuing the trend of high-amenity, high-flexibility office space to be built in Fulton Market, the 200,000 square-foot structure highlights the neighborhood’s increasing densification and expanding urban footprint. Although only 11 floors, the 178-foot-tall development by Sterling Bay still measures up to many of the surrounding projects and planned developments.
