The Committee on Design has launched its review of 1338 W Lake Street, a newly proposed 28-story mixed-use tower in West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Cedar Street Companies is the developer behind the 319-foot project, which would bring 271 new apartment units to the area, along with 7,100 square feet of retail.
A land purchase and start date have been announced for the mixed-use development at 917 W Fulton Market in Fulton Market. As a part of the greater West Loop area and occupying the full length of the block along N Sangamon Street south to W Lake Street, the structure is set to be the first office-heavy project to break ground this year in the neighborhood with changing demands. The team is being led by Fulton Street Companies, JDL and Shanna Khan, who have tapped New York-based Morris Adjmi Architects who also worked on the upcoming 900 Randolph nearby.
Full construction permits have been granted for the mixed-use development at 225 N Elizabeth Street in the Fulton Market District. Located on the corner with W Fulton Street, the project took the 11th place in our 2022 year-end countdown and has started construction with foundation work well underway. Now construction has been cleared to fully rise over its low-height industrial neighbors. Developer Sterling Bay, who is also busy building up Lincoln Yards, and Colorado-based Ascentris are working with local architecture firm Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture on its design.
Related Midwest has unveiled a new proposal for 725 W Randolph Street, a now 41-story skyscraper poised for the southeast corner of Fulton Market District. The mixed-use project has steered toward a more commercial angle over its last two building iterations, which would have yielded a 370-apartment residential component in addition to office space and a hotel. While apartment demand has blossomed following the reversal of a new housing moratorium in the district, the office market has also seen a recent surge of new companies into the neighborhood’s growing collection of large floor-plate towers.
The committee on design is now reviewing two mixed-use high rises at 370 N Morgan Street and 400 N Morgan Street in West Loop‘s Fulton Market. Located on the west side of the intersection with W Kinzie Street, the multi-phase project will eventually see a third tower join it at 401 N Morgan Street on the northeast corner. The three towers are being developed by Vista Properties, whose plans will replace what is currently a mix of surface lots and existing one- to two-story industrial buildings just north of the Metra tracks. Gensler is responsible for the designs.
