For this year’s Chicago Architecture Biennial, architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) introduced a concrete substitute made from algae, known as Bio-Blocks™. Integrated into a spiral wall for the demonstration, this material was developed in partnership with Prometheus Materials and offers a carbon-neutral construction alternative. The installation is located at The Mews in the Fulton Market District and is hosted by Shapack Partners, Focus, and Walton Street Capital. Biennial visitors can walk around the wall and observe its response to environmental factors like wind and moisture.
Today, YIMBY takes a look at the newly completed mixed-use high rise at 808 N Cleveland Avenue in Near North Side. Dubbed “The 808 Cleveland,” the 22-story building offers 28,000 square feet of retail and office space along with 200 apartments that are leased and managed by Common. DAC Developments is behind this project, which spans a total of 281,256 square feet and had a development cost of $105 million, according to their website.
Placing 16th in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown, construction is wrapping up for 808 N Cleveland Avenue, a 23-story mixed-use tower in Near North Side. Standing 260 feet to its pinnacle, the high-rise is being constructed on a formerly overgrown trapezoidal site and is set to provide 7500 square feet of retail space, 200 rentable apartments, and 20,000 square feet of office space.
DAC Developments is now disassembling the tower crane at 808 N Cleveland Avenue, a 23-story mixed-use tower in Near North Side. The topped-out high rise is taking the place of an overgrown trapezoidal piece of land. Programming will include 7,500 square feet of retail space, 20,000 square feet of leasable offices, and 200 for-rent apartments.
Construction at 808 N Cleveland Avenue is progressing at a rapid pace in Near North Side. The 23-story mixed-use tower is quickly reaching its full height, and the structural work is almost finished. The 284-foot-tall tower is being developed by DAC Developments and is replacing a previous overgrown lot on a trapezoidal parcel.
