Brick cladding can be seen for Sterling Bay’s 345 N Morgan Street, an 11-story mixed-use development in Fulton Market. This 200,000-square-foot edifice will house a mix of ground-level retail and offices above. Prior to construction, the site was occupied by a low-rise masonry building. The replacing structure will measure 178 feet in height despite the relatively low floor count.
The Community Development Commission has approved the land sale and Tax Increment Financing (TIF) funds for the affordable mixed-use development at 201 S Kedzie Avenue in East Garfield Park. Going by the name ‘Garfield Green’, the two-site project located on the intersection with S Fifth Avenue recently received approval from both the plan commission and city council.

Foundation work is now underway for a 30-story mixed-use high rise at 1400 S Wabash Avenue in South Loop. The developer CMK Companies plans for 299 total units atop ground-level retail. Replacing a long-vacant lot, the 316-foot-tall structure is poised to contribute to South Loop’s expanding high rise cluster.
Updated details and renderings have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 360 N Green Street in Fulton Market. Located north of the Metra tracks, the currently vacant lot will be replaced by the tower and a small pocket park developed by Sterling Bay with Gensler providing design services for the project. This will be the third iteration we’ve seen of the finalized design and presented to the community yesterday with further explanation of the changes.
