Initial details have been revealed for the redevelopment of an existing commercial building at 900 N North Branch Street on Goose Island. Located just west of the intersection with N Halsted Street, the existing masonry-clad, industrial-style building most famously housed local culinary school Kendall College for many years and is now being pivoted as class A office space. Owner and developer W.P. Carey is working with Madison Rose on the project and are currently in the selection process for an architect to execute the renovations.
Construction can be seen at the site of West Town‘s 1690 N Elston Avenue, where Property Adventures Corporation has planned a boutique office redevelopment of a former industrial building. This existing masonry structure will be renovated, while a new 10,000-square-foot addition will attach to its west-facing side.
Structural work has topped out for the eight-story life sciences center known as ALLY at 1229 W Concord Place. This 320,000 square-foot development by Sterling Bay is the first phase of the gargantuan Lincoln Yards master plan, which will ultimately span 55 acres along Chicago’s North Branch Corridor.
Both landscaping and facade work are nearing completion for the 52-story 320 S Canal Street, aka BMO Tower, located near the southern end of West Loop Gate. This 727-foot-tall office tower has been co-developed by Riverside Investment & Development and Convexity Properties.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the mixed-use development at 360 N Green Street in Fulton Market. Replacing a vacant lot just east of the recently announced Guinness Brewhouse, the Sterling Bay-led project is being designed by Gensler and has gone through a series of revisions, most recently this past February. The approval is the second tower moving forward this month in the area with the residential-heavy 1353 W Fulton Street also getting the green light.
