A rising core and row of V-shaped truss supports can be seen at 360 N Green Street, where developer Sterling Bay has planned for a 24-story mixed-use tower. With a height of 399 feet, the project will be built on a vacant lot located at Fulton Market‘s Green and Kinzie intersection, directly east of the now-underway Guinness Brewery and pub.
The penultimate addition to our Dead by Design series of cancelled Chicago projects is a gargantuan 2011 proposal oriented around the nine-story Old Chicago Post Office. The original post office was a smaller mail terminal designed by Graham, Anderson, Probst and White. Having completed in 1921, the Art Deco structure was expanded in 1932 to bring its total square footage to 2.5 million square feet. While shuttering its mail operations in 1996, the building was inducted into the National Registry of Historic Places in 2001, then would be sold by the city to Bill Davies of International Property Developers in 2009 for $24 million.
Curtain wall facets can be seen taking shape along the exterior of 1012 W Addison Street, a new three-story sportsbook betting addition to Wrigley Field in Lake View. The project is being spearheaded by the Chicago Cubs and Marquee Development, whose new wing of the iconic stadium comes as a result of a recent reversal of the city’s sports betting ban. This new ordinance has led to five total professional sports stadiums throughout the city now integrating their own betting operations.
Updated details have been revealed for the mixed-use development at 330 N Green Street in Fulton Market. Located just north of the intersection with W Wyman Street, the project replaces an empty lot that once held the Coyne College building. Developer Sterling Bay also built the structure across the street at 333 N Green Street as well as the one to the north at 360 N Green Street. Being one of the main driving forces in the neighborhood, they have partnered with Gensler for the new design of the building which was originally proposed a few years back.
The City of Chicago has announced a new program which seeks to revitalize the aging LaSalle Street corridor in The Loop. Dubbed LaSalle Street Reimagined, the program launched this week with an Invitation For Proposals (IFP) by the Department of Planning and Development as well as the Department of Housing. The boundary of the area for projects will be W Washington Street to the north, W Van Buren Street to the south, N Wells street to the west, and mainly N Clark Street to the east, encompassing much of the once bustling financial district.
