Final touches for both interior and exterior work can be seen at the 2740 North Spaulding Avenue (filed under 2755 N Milwaukee Avenue) in Logan Square. R.P. Fox & Associates is the developer behind the six-story mixed-use building, whose interior programming involves ground-level retail split into five segments, along with 60 apartments on the upper floors. Prior to demolition and subsequent construction, the roughly half-acre property was occupied by a single-story bakery and a parking lot.

This past week, the tower crane has been erected for a new 43-story mixed-use development in West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Planned by Related Midwest and dubbed “900 Randolph,” this 495-foot-tall tower will offer a combination of ground-level retail and 300 apartment units on the above floors. While marketing materials both on-site and on the developer’s website have listed 900 W Randolph Street as the address, a tip to YIMBY indicated that the project would eventually be switched back to its official address, 164 N Peoria Street.
At the southwest corner of Streeterville, facade scaffolding can be seen directly north of Tribune Tower at 160 E Illinois Street. Originally built in 2007 at 26 stories, the building known as “Avenue East” contains a total of 130 condominium units. The edifice offers a postmodern aesthetic with a mix of metal paneling, concrete, and glass.
Since YIMBY’s September update, glass has steadily enclosed most of the remaining floors at 300 N Michigan Avenue, a 47-story skyscraper that recently topped out in the northeast corner of The Loop. Developers Magellan Development Group and Sterling Bay have planned a mix of retail in the base, a 280-key CitizenM hotel on the sixth through 15th floors, and residential apartments on the 17th through 45th floors.
Since YIMBY’s September update, much of the facade work has taken place at the northern building of Southbridge Phase I, now known as 23rd Place at Southbridge. Located at 2310 S State Street and 2344 S State Street in Near South Side, these two sibling edifices both rise six stories and will offer a mix of ground-level retail and apartments on the upper floors. Planned by McCaffrey and The Community Builders, the unit count will tally at 206, divided evenly between each structure. Residences will comprise of a mix of affordable and market-rate options.
