Following up on last month’s demolition permit article, partial site clearing has begun for a 21-story mixed-use tower at 741 N Wells Street in River North. Planned by Vista Property Group, the development will integrate with a historic three-story brick building at its northwest corner bordering the intersection of W Chicago Avenue and N Wells Street.
A tower crane permit has now been issued for a mixed-use development at 741 N Wells Street in River North. Developer Vista Property Group has planned for a 21-story to rise atop a historic three-story masonry building just south of the Chicago & Wells intersection. Programming will provide 9,400 square feet of retail and 178 apartment units.
Exterior construction has reached completion for the 15-story high rise at 609 W Randolph Street in West Loop Gate. This mixed-use development by Vista Property Group consists of the aforementioned tower and a four-story 19th century brick building directly to the east.
The recently topped-out 609 W Randolph Street takes the 23rd spot in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown. The 15-story, 211-foot-tall high-rise comes to us from developer Vista Property Group and is designed by Antunovich Associates in the growing West Loop Gate neighborhood. The development which replaced a surface parking lot also included renovations of the existing adjoining five-story brick building built in the 1890’s.
