The concrete core has reached its full height for a 27-story mixed-use building at 160 N Elizabeth Street in the Fulton Market District. This 293-foot-tall edifice planned by Moceri + Roszak is set to yield 9,000 square feet of retail space and 375 rental units, 20 percent of which will be affordable under ARO. There will be a mix of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedrooms, and many of the units will also come with private balconies.

Structural steel has reached its full height for a three-story addition to Wrigley Field in Lake View, having been co-planned by the Chicago Cubs and Marquee Development. Connected to the original stadium, this new 22,000-square-foot enclosure at 1012 W Addison Street will house a Draftkings sportsbook betting venue along with multiple dining options, replacing the former Captain Morgan Club (later the Fantasy Draftkings Sports Zone) at the southeast corner of the stadium block. The project comes at the heels of City Council’s recent reversal of its sports betting ban, thereby greenlighting such operations at Chicago’s five professional stadiums.
Remaining facade touches are now underway for a boutique residential building at 1118 W Patterson Avenue in Lake View’s Wrigleyville neighborhood. The new construction project is situated at the border between residential and commercial zones, and will replace a former pair of masonry low-rise buildings.
Demolition and site clearing work is now underway for a 25-story mixed-use tower at 868 N Wells Street, the second building in the broader “North Union” scheme set to transform the north end of Chicago’s skyline. The tower will yield 428 rental units atop 12,000 square feet of retail. Currently underway the sibling tower at 920 N Wells Street is making significant construction progress, with much of the first floor’s superstructure now taking shape. This slightly shorter building will stand 18 stories and offer 10,000 square feet of retail and 228 apartments.
Following up on last month’s demolition permit article, partial site clearing has begun for a 21-story mixed-use tower at 741 N Wells Street in River North. Planned by Vista Property Group, the development will integrate with a historic three-story brick building at its northwest corner bordering the intersection of W Chicago Avenue and N Wells Street.
