Updated plans have been revealed for the mixed-use skyscraper at 420 N May Street in the West Loop. Located on the northwest corner with W Kinzie Street, the proposal will replace a couple of existing structures and their adjacent parking lot. Miami-based developer Crescent Heights presented the HPA-designed plans to the community at a meeting earlier this week. The developer also recently placed the parcel earmarked for NEMA phase II in the South Loop for sale.
Initial details have been revealed for the sale of the parcel of land at 1201 S Michigan Avenue in the South Loop. Located directly on the corner with E Roosevelt Road and adjacent to the NEMA Chicago skyscraper, the large lot was most recently envisioned as a slightly taller version of NEMA itself. Now Miami-based developer Crescent Heights has hired the local office of CBRE to sell the property according to Crain’s.
A zoning application has been submitted for the mixed-use skyscraper at 420 N May Street in the West Loop. Located on the northwestern corner with W Kinzie Street directly across the street from the recently completed Fulton Labs, the tower would become the tallest building west of the Loop adding a new peak to the skyline. Plans were originally revealed late last year by Miami-based developer Crescent Heights, who also built NEMA in the South Loop, and is working with local-architecture firm HPA.
A new tallest is coming to both Fulton Market and the broader West Loop as Crescent Heights recently proposed a 52-story skyscraper located at 420 N May Street. The structure will stand 600 feet, surpassing the nearby 900 Randolph Street that is already dominating the emerging western skyline. The mixed-use tower will house a total of 587 apartment units atop 3,100 square feet of retail and 339 total parking spaces.
Updated renderings and plans have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 640 W Washington Boulevard in West Loop Gate. Located just east of the Kennedy Expressway on the corner with N Des Plaines Street, the tower will replace a surface parking lot as downtown density pushes west. Miami-based developer Crescent Heights, the company behind other recent Chicago skyscrapers including Nema in the South Loop, has partnered with local design firm Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture on the slim skyscraper.
