Foundation work is progressing on HUGO, LG Development‘s two-building development located at 751 N Hudson Avenue and 411 W Chicago Avenue in River North. The two nine-story buildings will be nearly adjacent to one another, separated by an existing low-rise masonry building. Combined, the mixed-use edifices will span 230,000 square feet, occupied by 19,000 square feet of mercantile space and 227 apartments.
411 W Chicago Avenue
Following permit approval from last summer, foundation work can now be seen for LG Development’s HUGO masterplan, which involves the construction of two mid-rise buildings in River North. Located at 751 N Hudson Avenue and 411 W Chicago Avenue, these two mixed-use structures will each stand nine stories and will collectively house 230,000 square feet of programming, made up of roughly 19,000 square feet of retail and 227 apartment dwellings. The two buildings will replace former parking lots, and will be narrowly separated by an existing masonry low-rise building.
Construction permits have been issued for the second of two buildings within LG Development‘s HUGO masterplan. This second mixed-use building is located at the eastern end of the property at 411 W Chicago Avenue, and will house ground-level retail, 93 apartments, as well as various amenity spaces. These building-specific amenities include a large landscaped sun deck with lounge chairs, an outdoor kitchen with grilling stations, and a 10th-floor amenity deck with east-facing views.
