Noted Chicago developer Sterling Bay has unveiled ambitious plans to build the city’s largest and tallest timber building since the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. They are planning a nine-story, 130-unit apartment building at 2100 N Southport Avenue in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
Construction has begun for a 24-story mixed-use tower at 360 N Green Street in Fulton Market District. The 399-foot high rise developed by Sterling Bay will feature two retail spaces spanning a total of 5,400 square feet, along with offices as the primary programming. This project is set to replace a former vacant lot at the northeast corner of the rapidly developing neighborhood. Nearly 100 feet taller than adjacent projects like 333 N Green Street and 800 W Fulton Market, 360 N Green Street will add a dramatic presence to the emerging West Loop skyline.
Final glass and brick installation is visible at Sterling Bay’s 345 N Morgan Street, an 11-story mixed-use building in Fulton Market District. This latest edifice to be added to the rapidly densifying neighborhood will provide a combination of ground-level retail topped by offices above. Despite its relatively low floor count, the high rise will compete in height with some of the other nearby projects at a height of 178 feet.
Facade installation can be seen making substantial progress for the glassy new life sciences center known as ALLY at 1229 W Concord, the first building in Sterling Bay’s 55-acre Lincoln Yards mega-development along the North Branch of Chicago River.
Structural work is now above grade for a 30-story apartment building just north of Morgan & Randolph in West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Residing under the address 160 N Morgan Street, this development by Sterling Bay and Ascentris will be one of the tallest towers west of the Kennedy Expressway at a height of 350 feet. Programming will include 282 rental apartments atop two levels of retail within its podium.
