Last week, Chicago YIMBY had the opportunity to step inside 800 Fulton, a 19-story office and retail building that recently completed construction in West Loop‘s Fulton Market District. Developed by Thor Equities alongside joint venture partner QuadReal, the 300-foot monolith at 800 W Fulton Market spans nearly half a million square feet, offering tenants column-free layouts, private terraces, and 13-foot floor spans. The lower three levels offer 35,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.
Revised designs have been revealed for the two-tower project at 1112 W Carroll Avenue and 315 N May Street in the West Loop. ESG Architects presented the new plans along with developer Trammell Crow to the West Loop Community Organization; changes to the design were developed based on comments received during the inaugural meeting of the Committee on Design last month.
The concrete core for Salesforce Tower Chicago is now at roughly the two-thirds height mark, set to rise 60 stories at the southwest tip of River North. The 1.2 million-square-foot skyscraper at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza is the final staple in a three-building masterplan known as Wolf Point, developed by Hines and in partnership with the Joseph P. Kennedy Family. The Wolf Point parcel is just under three acres, occupying an outcrop that borders the confluence of the Chicago River. This land has served a swath of purposes since the first settling of Chicago, ranging from a parking lot prior to the current development all the way back to the site of the city’s first tavern.
Construction equipment is now on site, with foundation work imminent for Sterling Bay‘s first building at Lincoln Yards. This new structure, known as ALLY at 1229 W Concord, will serve as an eight-story office venue for bioscience-related companies. At 320,000 square feet, the edifice will feature a double-story lobby, flexible floor plates, and an east-facing terrace with river and skyline views.
Glass, metal, and brick continues to envelope the 12-story mixed-use building known as 1045 on Fulton Market currently underway in West Loop‘s Fulton Market District.

The new structure, officially addressed as 1045 W Fulton Market, is replacing a former parking lot and single-story masonry building.
