The dual cores have nearly topped out for 1020 W Randolph Street in Fulton Market District. L3 Capital is behind this five-story mixed-use development, yielding ground-floor retail and boutique Class A offices on the upper levels. The top of the building will feature an amenity enclosure and a 1,850-square-foot rooftop deck. Meanwhile, the 22,000 square feet of interior space will offer sleek finishes, living walls, and expansive warehouse-style windows.

Structural steel has reached its pinnacle for the frontmost section of “The Porter,” a five-story mixed-use building rising at 2411 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park. Having replaced a privately-owned park at the three-way intersection of Lincoln Avenue, Halsted Street, and Fullerton Avenue, the scheme by Mike Breheny involves 3,700 square feet of retail, a 1,700 square-foot covered patio, and 36 for-rent apartments above.
New designs and scope have been unveiled for a planned 36-story mixed-use tower at 301 S Green Street in West Loop. Co-developers GSP Development and Golub & Company have envisioned a total of 362 apartment units atop 1,700 square feet of ground-floor retail. Poised to stand 404 feet, the high rise will be a major addition to West Loop’s overall building height, helping to counterbalance the influx of taller projects towards its north end.
In an increasingly heated saga over their ultimate fate, two historic Loop buildings targeted for demolition by the federal government have been cleared for review by the Commission on Chicago Landmarks. The process could lead to the landmarking of the two terracotta-clad structures, whose potential demise reflect “security concerns” over potential vantage points available looking into the adjacent Dirksen Federal Building. Designed by Holabird and Roche, the 16-story Century Building at 202 S State Street was completed in 1915, while the 21-story Consumers Building at 220 S State Street was designed by Jenney, Mundie, & Jensen and completed in 1913. Both are part of the National Register’s Loop Retail Historic District, but currently lack official city landmark designation that would parry any demolition efforts.
Facade installation has begun for 808 N Cleveland Avenue, a 23-story mixed-use tower nearing its full height in Near North Side. A notable addition to Chicago Avenue’s recent canyon-ization, the 284-foot-tall tower is being developed by DAC Developments and will provide 7,500 square feet of retail, 20,000 square feet of leasable offices, and 200 for-rent apartments. The new structure is replacing a previously overgrown lot situated on a trapezoidal parcel.
