Last week, Chicago YIMBY had the opportunity to tour JDL Development‘s two-tower megadevelopment known as One Chicago, located at the northeast corner of River North. At 2.1 million square feet, the mixed-use project will yield a combination of 55,000 square feet of office space, 812 residential units, restaurant and banquet space, and a new 65,000-square-foot Whole Foods at its base.
Steel is now above the halfway point for Salesforce Tower Chicago, a 60-story skyscraper at the confluence of the Chicago River. Located at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza in River North and developed by Hines, the 1.2 million-square-foot structure will house primarily office space, as well as ground-level retail and tenant amenities. Each office floor will provide 24,500-square-foot floor plates, as well as flexible tenant build outs. Amenities will include a club-caliber fitness center, a conference center, and a tenant lounge. The anchor tenant, Salesforce, will also have top-level “Ohana” floor, similar to the one in San Francisco’s Salesforce Tower. Equipped sweeping city views, this level will serve as a lounge space for Salesforce employees during business hours and a venue for nonprofit and educational events during off hours.
Demolition has wrapped up for a former single-story bank, clearing the way for a new five-story mixed-use building at Fulton Market‘s 1020 W Randolph Street. L3 Capital is the developer of the West Loop project, whose new edifice will house ground-level retail space and 22,000 square feet of offices on the upper four floors. Programming will also offer tenants a sixth-floor amenity penthouse and a nearly 2,000-square-foot terrace with skyline views.
The 12-story mixed-use development known as 1045 on Fulton Market hit a key milestone this past week when its first facade pieces were installed. At 150,000 square feet, the boutique Fulton Market building at 1045 W Fulton Market offers ground-level retail, with office floor plates above ranging in size from 14,000 to 10,000 square feet. Both buildings have been co-developed by Fulton Street Companies and Intercontinental Real Estate.
Both interior and exterior work is currently underway for the adaptive reuse of the 13-story Bridgeview Bank Building, located at 4753 N Broadway Avenue in Uptown. Previously known as the Sheridan Bank and Trust Building, the classically-styled structure was initially built at eight stories in 1925 before four additional floors were constructed in 1928. In 2007, the structure received landmark designation, before it was bought by Cedar St. Companies for $19 million in 2019.
