Construction has topped out for 609 W Randolph Street, a 15-story mixed-use development near the heart of West Loop Gate. Planned by Vista Property Group and spanning over 100,000 feet, the 211-foot-tall tower is set to house 1,770 square feet of ground-level retail and office use on the remaining 14 floors. The base of the project will also restore and integrate a late 19th-century masonry building, while the new construction will replace a former parking lot.

Caisson work has kicked off for The Reed, a 41-story residential tower along the river in South Loop. Situated at 234 W Polk Street, the 447-foot-tall structure serves as the second phase of a larger five-building development by Lendlease known as Southbank. This masterplan was formerly occupied by a large grass parcel that had long been vacant. Underneath this land were a series of freight tunnels that have undergone a sealing process over the past few months, thereby allowing The Reed to proceed.
