Located in the Near West Side neighborhood along Union Park, the structure and outer walls for 140 N Ashland Avenue have now reached their full height. This 12-story mixed-use building planned by developer Marquette Companies will integrate with a 1920s era, five-story brick structure on its southern side. Once complete, the complex will feature 210 apartment units above ground-level retail spaces.
The Lydian, a 22-story high rise at 513 S Damen Avenue in the Illinois Medical District, has now opened to residents. This is the second phase of a three-building complex spearheaded by Marquette Companies and managed by Power Construction as the general contractor.
This year’s countdown continues with The Lydian at 513 S Damen Avenue in the Illinois Medical District taking the 19th place. The structure claimed the 19th place in last year’s countdown as well when it had recently broken ground, but now the development races towards completion just south of the intersection with W Congress Parkway. Local developer Marquette Companies, who is also behind a handful of projects around the West Loop’s Union Park, is leading the charge with architecture firm Brininstool + Lynch having worked on its design.
As the 30th tallest construction project in Chicago’s year-end countdown and set to stand 155 feet in height, 140 N Ashland Avenue is now making headway in Near West Side. The 12-story building by Marquette Companies will attach to an existing five-story brick building, offering a total 210 rental apartments in addition to first-floor retail. At least 10 percent of the units will be affordable, while the remaining five percent will either be on- or off-site (yet to be indicated).
Structural work has now begun on the second floor of 140 N Ashland Avenue, a 12-story mixed-use building rising in Near West Side. Under development by Marquette Companies, the new building will be integrated with an existing five-story brick building adjacent south, yielding a total of 210 apartments atop ground-level retail. The development will yield a minimum of 10 percent on-site affordable units, while it has yet to be determined if the remaining five percent will be on site or off.
