Structural work is now above grade for a 30-story apartment building just north of Morgan & Randolph in West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Residing under the address 160 N Morgan Street, this development by Sterling Bay and Ascentris will be one of the tallest towers west of the Kennedy Expressway at a height of 350 feet. Programming will include 282 rental apartments atop two levels of retail within its podium.
Now open to residents is the 47-story condominium skyscraper known as Cirrus, situated just west of the lakefront in Chicago’s Lakeshore East. This 562-foot-tall tower at 211 N Harbor Drive was developed by Lendlease and Magellan Development Group, offering 350 condominiums connected to 50,000 square feet of amenity space. Alongside its 37-story apartment buildings sibling dubbed Cascade and a 0.8-acre-Cascade Park. The two towers and the park occupy the parcels J, K, and L of the larger Lakeshore East masterplan.
Initial plans have been revealed for a mixed-use development within the walls of the existing Washington Park National Bank building at 6300 S Cottage Grove Avenue in Woodlawn. Located on the southwest corner with E 63rd Street directly adjacent to the CTA Green Line terminal station, the historical structure has fallen into deep disrepair from years of sitting vacant. Developers DL3 Realty have owned the site for various years with their precious plans being proposed prior to the pandemic and having since changed, although local firm bKL Architecture remains as the project’s designer.
Foundation work is making quick headway for 160 N Morgan Street, a 30-story apartment building gearing up to rise in Fulton Market. At 350 feet, the tower will be one of the taller structures to rise as West Loop‘s development boom gains momentum. Developed in partnership between Sterling Bay and Ascentris, plans for the structure include 282 rental units, occupied by two levels of retail at its base.
Developer Sterling Bay has secured financing for its mixed-use development at 160 N Morgan Street in Fulton Market. Located just north of W Randolph Street and next to the CTA Morgan station, the tall tower replaces a now-demolished drive-thru bank that once held a Gucci pop-up shop. Earlier this year Sterling Bay forged a joint venture with Colorado-based real estate private equity firm Ascentris on the project with local firm bKL Architecture working on the modern design.
