With a demolition permit approved this past Wednesday, equipment can be seen at the future site of 160 N Morgan Street, a 29-story mixed-use high rise planned for West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Developed by Sterling Bay, this 350-foot-tall tower will be replacing a former one-story masonry building.
Coming in at spot number 20 in our year-end countdown of tallest construction projects is 166 N Aberdeen Street, a new mixed-use high rise near the western end of the Fulton Market District. Rising 241 feet to the top of its elevator overrun, the 21-story building has been planned by MCZ Development, and will provide ground-level retail and 224 total apartments. Replacing the now-demolished Fabbri Sausage Factory, the project recently broke ground and erected its tower crane.
Coming in at 22nd in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown is the 16-story Fulton Labs at 400 N Aberdeen Street, located near the northern edge of West Loop’s Fulton Market District. At a height of 242 feet, the nearly completed life and health sciences office building is being developed by Trammell Crow Company in collaboration with Zoë Life Sciences. Having replaced a pair of one- and four-story masonry buildings, the modern new tower is the second installation of the Fulton Labs campus plan, which also includes the nearby 14-story 1375 W Fulton Street that was completed last year.
This past week, the tower crane has been erected for a new 43-story mixed-use development in West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Planned by Related Midwest and dubbed “900 Randolph,” this 495-foot-tall tower will offer a combination of ground-level retail and 300 apartment units on the above floors. While marketing materials both on-site and on the developer’s website have listed 900 W Randolph Street as the address, a tip to YIMBY indicated that the project would eventually be switched back to its official address, 164 N Peoria Street.
