This week, YIMBY stopped by the commercial redevelopment of 932 W Randolph Street in West Loop. With exterior work now complete, interior construction can be seen progressing as this three-story former bank prepares for tenant occupancy. Developer L3 Capital has converted the former bank into a new retail and office venue, reskinning its outer walls and gutting the interior, while also adding a new segment at the northern end of the property. Last year, plans were revealed for the retail component to be occupied by a showroom for the electric carmaker Rivian.
Work has completed for the second phase of the Steppenwolf Theater campus expansion in Lincoln Park. This new theater-in-the-round is now open for performances, with 50,000 total square feet of space and seating for 400 patrons. The building at 1646 N Halsted Street, designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, also comes with a two-story atrium and lobby, a wine bar and lounge area, as well as a costume shop.
Facade progress is rapidly taking shape for 932 W Randolph Street, a redevelopment of a former three-story bank in West Loop‘s Fulton Market. The development involves the re-skin of the existing structure, and a new three-level connected addition that will take on the same design. L3 Capital is the developer behind the 35,000-square-foot project, whose programming will be entirely commercial. Recent reports have confirmed that a new showroom for the electric carmaker Rivian will occupy the building. Last year, L3 Capital received approval to convert the existing zoning designation of the property from C1-2 neighborhood commercial district to DX-5 mixed-use district.
