Construction has now ascended past the 12th floor at 160 N Morgan Street, a 30-story mixed-use tower in Fulton Market District. At 350 feet in height, the new high rise by Sterling Bay and Ascentris will tower above the majority of the other buildings west of the Kennedy Expressway, making a significant mark on the growing West Loop skyline.
Initial details have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 1016 W Jackson Boulevard in the West Loop. Located just west of the intersection with S Morgan Street, the new project will replace an existing five-story office building and its parking lot that currently occupy the site. The team at Chicago-based Mavrek Development is leading the proposal with local firm BKV Group who also worked on 525 S Wabash Avenue being in charge of its design.
Updated renderings are currently making their way through zoning approvals as Pizzuti Development plans 1061 W Van Buren Street, a new 21-story mixed-use tower along the southern edge of West Loop. Officially addressed as 1011 W Van Buren Street, the project will be replacing a narrow vacant lot whose length runs west and east. Alongside completed towers like Avra West Loop and Landmark West Loop and other underway developments like 1044 W Van Buren and CA6, the new construction represents a growing node of high-density housing along the Eisenhower Expressway (I-290).
This week, YIMBY attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for 345 N Morgan Street, an 11-story mixed-use building in Fulton Market District. This new development features new ground-level retail topped by offices on the upper floors. Continuing the trend of high-amenity, high-flexibility office space to be built in Fulton Market, the 200,000 square-foot structure highlights the neighborhood’s increasing densification and expanding urban footprint. Although only 11 floors, the 178-foot-tall development by Sterling Bay still measures up to many of the surrounding projects and planned developments.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the mixed-use development at 301 S Green Street in the West Loop. Located on the corner with W Jackson Boulevard, the new structure will replace a parking lot and one-story industrial building in the quickly growing area that has seen most of its growth north of W Randolph Street. Co-led by GSP Development and Golub & Company, the tower is being designed by Goettsch Partners who have made a new round of changes after input from various city agencies.
