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.

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.
Foundation work is ready to give way to vertical construction for the mixed-use development at 225 N Elizabeth Street in Fulton Market District, where many of this year’s entries are. Located on the southeast corner with W Fulton Street, foundation work is currently well underway for the structure after it completed the removal of the previous empty surface lot on the site. Developers Sterling Bay and Colorado-based Ascentris have been leading the charge on the Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture-designed-structure.
