Updated plans have been revealed for the mixed-use skyscraper at 420 N May Street in the West Loop. Located on the northwest corner with W Kinzie Street, the proposal will replace a couple of existing structures and their adjacent parking lot. Miami-based developer Crescent Heights presented the HPA-designed plans to the community at a meeting earlier this week. The developer also recently placed the parcel earmarked for NEMA phase II in the South Loop for sale.
420 N May Street
A zoning application has been submitted for the mixed-use skyscraper at 420 N May Street in the West Loop. Located on the northwestern corner with W Kinzie Street directly across the street from the recently completed Fulton Labs, the tower would become the tallest building west of the Loop adding a new peak to the skyline. Plans were originally revealed late last year by Miami-based developer Crescent Heights, who also built NEMA in the South Loop, and is working with local-architecture firm HPA.
A new tallest is coming to both Fulton Market and the broader West Loop as Crescent Heights recently proposed a 52-story skyscraper located at 420 N May Street. The structure will stand 600 feet, surpassing the nearby 900 Randolph Street that is already dominating the emerging western skyline. The mixed-use tower will house a total of 587 apartment units atop 3,100 square feet of retail and 339 total parking spaces.
