Updated details has been released for a mixed-use development at 170 N Green Street in the West Loop. Located just north of W Randolph Street, the multi-structure project will replace the old Bridgford Foods plant which was vacated in 2020 and is currently being demolished. The joint venture developers of St. Louis-based Clayco’s real estate division CRG and West Loop native Shapack Partners, have tapped the Chicago-based architecture firm Lamar Johnson Collaborative on the new design.
Initial renderings have been revealed for a new expansive renovation of the Merchandise Mart at 222 W Merchandise Mart Plaza in River North. The renovation comes just a few years after it received major updates including new elevators, monumental stairs, and upgrades to other amenity areas. The new work will be led by New York-based developer Vornado Realty Trust who is also planning some residential towers nearby, while the design is led by the local office of Gensler.
Further details and initial floor plans have been revealed for the next phase of Lincoln Yards near Goose Island. Building upon the initial information we covered this past December, developer Sterling Bay brought forward another informational presentation to the Chicago Plan Commission as it does not need any further approval. Designed by local firms Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture and Gensler along with Hoerr Schauft and Site Design Group on the landscape team, the project is expected to be completed in 2025.
Metal cladding can now be seen enshrouding the remainder of 1525 N Elston Avenue, a six-story boutique office building in West Town. The uniquely-shaped edifice has been planned by Property Adventures Corp, and will include a ground-level lobby and five total suites on the upper five floors.
Significant progress can be seen for ALLY at 1229 W Concord Place, an eight-story research-oriented office building along the North Branch corridor. This building serves as the first entry in Sterling Bay’s gargantuan Lincoln Yards master plan, which will ultimately yield 15 million square feet of mixed-use space at a projected cost of $6 billion.
