Photos taken yesterday show construction mockups and other equipment on the site of Fulton Market‘s 345 N Morgan Street, in preparation of the future 11-story office building. The structure will replace a previously-demolished single-story commercial building, adding 230,000 square feet of total floor space to the pool of new office developments rising in the West Loop neighborhood.
Construction has begun on the foundations for 300 N Michigan, which will rise 523 feet across 47 stories. Addressed as 300 N Michigan Avenue in The Loop, the development will stand at the intersection of N Michigan Avenue and E Wacker Place. Permit filings show that the foundation permits were issued in August, approving the construction of the caissons, foundation structure, and full floor structure up to level four. Full building permits have yet to be filed for the tower portion of the project. 300 N Michigan LLC is the owner behind the applications, an LLC for Magellan Development Group and Sterling Bay, the developers collaborating on this project.
YIMBY has fresh photos showing off two major office space projects rising in the Fulton Market neighborhood of West Loop. Both sites, 800 W Fulton Market developed by Thor Equities, and 320 N Sangamon Street developed by Tishman Speyer, lie just north of the Fulton Market street, and just south of the Metra North West and Central Line rails. Transit in the area includes the bus route 8 stop at Halsted & Fulton Market. CTA L access includes Morgan station along the Green and Pink Lines, just one block south of Fulton Market. The area has been noted previously for its growing vibrancy amongst a slew of new restaurants, bars, and mixed-use development.
YIMBY spotted what appears to be a test facade piece on the lot of 1325 W Fulton Market, a project developed by Sterling Bay and designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Located at the west end of the rising Fulton Market neighborhood, the site is located at the corner of W Fulton Market and N Ada Street, just across from Sterling Bay’s Fulton West at 1330 W Fulton Market. Nearby bus transit is a nine-minute walk southwest to the 9 route’s Ashland & Lake stop, as well as a nine-minute walk southeast to the 19 route’s Washington & Racine bus stop. Nearby CTA L stops include a seven-minute walk southwest to Ashland Station and a ten-minute walk southeast to Morgan Station, both of which are serviced by the Green and Pink Lines.
