Structural work has topped out for the eight-story life sciences center known as ALLY at 1229 W Concord Place. This 320,000 square-foot development by Sterling Bay is the first phase of the gargantuan Lincoln Yards master plan, which will ultimately span 55 acres along Chicago’s North Branch Corridor.
1229 W Concord Place
Significant progress can be seen for ALLY at 1229 W Concord Place, an eight-story research-oriented office building along the North Branch corridor. This building serves as the first entry in Sterling Bay’s gargantuan Lincoln Yards master plan, which will ultimately yield 15 million square feet of mixed-use space at a projected cost of $6 billion.
Construction equipment is now on site, with foundation work imminent for Sterling Bay‘s first building at Lincoln Yards. This new structure, known as ALLY at 1229 W Concord, will serve as an eight-story office venue for bioscience-related companies. At 320,000 square feet, the edifice will feature a double-story lobby, flexible floor plates, and an east-facing terrace with river and skyline views.
A tower crane permit has been issued for the eight-story Life Sciences Building at Lincoln Yards, marking a key milestone as developer Sterling Bay kicks off its first building in the larger 53-acre Lincoln yards development along Chicago’s North Branch corridor. The permit address has been listed under 1229 W Concord Place, though the official address will fall under 1200 W Concord Place. The site of the new construction is a 60,000-square-foot parcel located at the southern end of the Lincoln Yards development boundary, just west of the river.
