Updated details and renderings have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 360 N Green Street in Fulton Market. Located north of the Metra tracks, the currently vacant lot will be replaced by the tower and a small pocket park developed by Sterling Bay with Gensler providing design services for the project. This will be the third iteration we’ve seen of the finalized design and presented to the community yesterday with further explanation of the changes.
The Chicago City Council has approved a new mixed-use development at 1245 W Fulton Market Street in the West Loop. Located near the intersection with N Elizabeth Street, the project comes to us from developer Sterling Bay with the design being led by West Loop local firm Harthshorne Plunkard Architecture. The approval green-lights the building to rise in the fast-growing neighborhood where some have called for a slowdown on new developments.
Significant progress can be seen for ALLY at 1229 W Concord Place, an eight-story research-oriented office building along the North Branch corridor. This building serves as the first entry in Sterling Bay’s gargantuan Lincoln Yards master plan, which will ultimately yield 15 million square feet of mixed-use space at a projected cost of $6 billion.
At Fulton Market District‘s 345 N Morgan Street, on the site of a former low-rise masonry building, a much taller replacement high-rise has maxed out at 11 floors and 178 feet tall. This boutique commercial development by Sterling Bay brings an industrial yet refined aesthetic to the rapidly developing neighborhood. The design by Eckenhoff Saunders Architects consists of lighter-tone brick, grand archways and windows, welded metal accents, as well as soaring ceilings to account for the relatively high height-to-floor count ratio.
Developer Sterling Bay has announced a partnership for its 160 N Morgan Street mixed-use development in the West Loop. The joint venture will be with Colorado-based real estate private equity firm Ascentris and will see the ground-breaking of the high-rise in the first quarter of 2022. Designed by local firm bKL Architecture on a mid-block lot that once held a drive-thru bank, the demolition of the existing building has begun with site prep expected to commence soon after.
