Facade pieces can be seen nearing the top of “The Row”, a new 43-story mixed-use tower located at 900 W Randolph Street in Fulton Market. Developed by Related Midwest, the 495-foot edifice is West Loop’s second-ever skyscraper (above 150 meters in height), with the first being 727 W Madison Street, built in 2018. The project will bring 300 total residential units to the neighborhood, of which 60 will be affordable. There will be a 146-vehicle garage embedded within the podium.
Full construction permits have now been issued for 5200 W Chicago Avenue in Austin. The Oak Park Regional Housing Center and Heartland Housing Alliance have partnered to renovate and redevelop the historic Laramie State Bank building and an adjacent parking lot to the west.
Quickly rising into the 8th place of this year’s countdown is the mixed-use tower at 160 N Morgan Street in the West Loop. Located just north of famed W Randolph Street in the growing neighborhood, the project recently had its first pieces of facade installed as it grows next to neighborhood stalwart Federales who just announced a Logan Square outpost. Developer Sterling Bay partnered with the Colorado-based equity firm Ascentris, both of which are also working on the 11th place of the countdown 225 N Elizabeth nearby, with bKL Architecture leading the design.
A new construction permit has been issued for the first phase of a mixed-use development at 3437 W Flournoy Street in Homan Square. Dubbed the Homan Square Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) project, the three-site proposal is being built in multiple phases with the lots centering around S Homan Avenue just south of the highway. Hoping to tackle various housing issues, the locally-led Foundation for Homan Square is envisioning the project with popular design firm JGMA working on the buildings.
The 43-story mixed-use tower at 900 Randolph Street has officially reached its full height, making it the second tallest building in West Loop. Related Midwest has planned for two levels of retail and 300 rental units within this 495-foot-tall tower.
