The Chicago City Council has approved the mixed-use development dubbed NOMA across multiple lots in West Town. Consisting of a mix of adaptive re-use and new construction, the multi-phase project is generally bound by W Ohio Street to the north, W Hubbard Street to the south, N Halsted to the west, and N Des Plaines Street to the east. The team at Shapack Partners, who developed various West Loop properties, is partnering with architecture firms Chicago-based Eckenhoff Saunders and New York-based ODA on its design.

This week, YIMBY attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for 345 N Morgan Street, an 11-story mixed-use building in Fulton Market District. This new development features new ground-level retail topped by offices on the upper floors. Continuing the trend of high-amenity, high-flexibility office space to be built in Fulton Market, the 200,000 square-foot structure highlights the neighborhood’s increasing densification and expanding urban footprint. Although only 11 floors, the 178-foot-tall development by Sterling Bay still measures up to many of the surrounding projects and planned developments.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a large new mixed-use development using various lots in West Town. Spread across a total of five lots predominantly centered around the intersection of W Grand Avenue and N Union Avenue, the project looks to feed off of the upcoming demand created by the nearby casino as well as the growing West Loop neighborhood within walking distance. The multi-phase proposal is being led by Fulton Market stalwart Shapack Partners which partnered with local firm Eckenhoff Saunders and New York-based ODA, known for their deconstructed style.
Structural work has reached its full height for 3501 N Halsted Street, a five-story mixed-use building in Lakeview East. The new facility will serve as a hub for Howard Brown Health, an organization dedicated to providing comprehensive care and support for the LGBTQ community in Chicago.
Initial details have been revealed for a new mixed-use development at 415 N Sangamon Street in the West Loop. Located on the corner with W Kinzie Street directly across from the upcoming Guinness Brewery, the new proposal will incorporate the existing multi-story structure on site and occupy the adjacent vacant lot. The developer Fortem Voluntas Partners is led by ex-Sterling Bay leasing agent Joy Jordan. According to Crain’s, they have partnered up with local architecture firm Eckenhoff Saunders on the design of the sleek new tower.
