Earlier this month, YIMBY reported on the Committee on Design’s review of 170 N Green Street, where CRG (of St. Louis-based Clayco) and Shapack Partners have planned a massive mixed-use development. The Fulton Market site was previously owned by Bridgford Foods, whose former packaging facility is currently undergoing full demolition. Clayco purchased the property for $60 million in 2020, prior to which Bridgford Foods had considered its own plans for a 17-story building to occupy the site.
Just north of the Randolph & Aberdeen intersection in West Loop, Greystar Development’s 166 N Aberdeen Street can be seen rising past the second floor. The 21-story project involves a mixed-use package of ground-level retail and 224 total apartment dwellings. Greystar purchased this parcel, a former sausage factory, for $6 million from MCZ Development.
This week, YIMBY stopped by the commercial redevelopment of 932 W Randolph Street in West Loop. With exterior work now complete, interior construction can be seen progressing as this three-story former bank prepares for tenant occupancy. Developer L3 Capital has converted the former bank into a new retail and office venue, reskinning its outer walls and gutting the interior, while also adding a new segment at the northern end of the property. Last year, plans were revealed for the retail component to be occupied by a showroom for the electric carmaker Rivian.
Initial details have been revealed for a new residential development at 1026 W Jackson Boulevard in the West Loop. Located near the intersection with S Morgan Street, the new structure will replace the existing two-story manufacturing plant of the Bays Corporation, famous for their English Muffins, and its adjacent parking lot. Developer Belgravia Group is behind the project, who is also responsible for CA6 Condos building rising nearby, with Sullivan Goulette Wilson Architects leading the design.
The 43-story mixed-use tower at 900 Randolph Street, on track to be West Loop’s second skyscraper, has now surpassed the fifth floor. Under development by Related Midwest, this 495-foot-tall edifice will house a combination of ground-level retail and a total of 300 apartment units.
