The development at 140 North Ashland Avenue is advancing, with fiber cement installation now well underway for this 12-story mixed-use project in the Near West Side. Marquette Companies, the developer, has combined this new structure with a pre-existing five-story brick building from the 1920s on its southern boundary. Upon completion, the building will contain 210 apartments above retail establishments on the ground level.

Located in the Near West Side neighborhood along Union Park, the structure and outer walls for 140 N Ashland Avenue have now reached their full height. This 12-story mixed-use building planned by developer Marquette Companies will integrate with a 1920s era, five-story brick structure on its southern side. Once complete, the complex will feature 210 apartment units above ground-level retail spaces.
The Lydian, a 22-story high rise at 513 S Damen Avenue in the Illinois Medical District, has now opened to residents. This is the second phase of a three-building complex spearheaded by Marquette Companies and managed by Power Construction as the general contractor.
This year’s countdown continues with The Lydian at 513 S Damen Avenue in the Illinois Medical District taking the 19th place. The structure claimed the 19th place in last year’s countdown as well when it had recently broken ground, but now the development races towards completion just south of the intersection with W Congress Parkway. Local developer Marquette Companies, who is also behind a handful of projects around the West Loop’s Union Park, is leading the charge with architecture firm Brininstool + Lynch having worked on its design.
As the 30th tallest construction project in Chicago’s year-end countdown and set to stand 155 feet in height, 140 N Ashland Avenue is now making headway in Near West Side. The 12-story building by Marquette Companies will attach to an existing five-story brick building, offering a total 210 rental apartments in addition to first-floor retail. At least 10 percent of the units will be affordable, while the remaining five percent will either be on- or off-site (yet to be indicated).
