The core is now approaching its full height for 360 N Green Street, a 24-story mixed-use tower at the northeast corner of Fulton Market. The tower, located directly east of Guinness Brewery, will stand 399 feet tall.
This weekend, Chicago YIMBY had the opportunity to tour the nearly complete 1229 W Concord Place, the first building of the broader Lincoln Yards plan. Developed by Sterling Bay, the plan calls for a 53-acre urban revamp of a former North Branch industrial corridor. This first installation will offer 320,000 square feet of Class A medical research labs geared towards biotechnology and bioscience tenant companies.
Updated details have been revealed for one of the next phases of the Lincoln Yards mega-development near Goose Island. As work wrapped up on Ally at 1229 W Concord late last year, developer Sterling Bay has shifted its originally announced phasing plan on the HPA and Gensler designed proposal. The change is most likely due to a changing economy and thus brings the two mixed-use structures at the D2 and D3 riverfront parcels just north of Ally to the forefront. While parcels D1 and the market place were set to be delivered prior, no movement has been seen on those, a more detailed breakdown can be found here.
Many of the I-beam exterior pieces have now been installed along 1012 W Addison Street, a new three-story sportsbook betting addition to Wrigley Field in Lake View. The Chicago Cubs and Marquee Development are spearheading an extension to the iconic stadium oriented around sports betting, whose ban in the city was recently lifted. Owing to this new ordinance, the five major sports stadiums in the city have now facilitated their own betting operations.
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.
