Close to topping out is a 22-story residential building at 513 S Damen Avenue in the Illinois Medical District (IMD). This 242-foot-tall edifice developed by Marquette Companies will yield 279 rental apartment units and 1,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor.
Aluminum panel installation has kicked off at The Gateway Apartments, an 11-story residential building at 2050 W Ogden Avenue in the Illinois Medical District.
