James McHugh Construction Co
Developer Sterling Bay and partnering private equity firm Ascentris have broken ground on a 28-story mixed-use tower, situated at 225 N Elizabeth Street (formerly addressed as 1245 W Fulton) in West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Plans for this 314-foot-tall edifice include 350 residential apartments atop first-floor retail. Unit sizes will be split into 66 studios, 46 convertibles, 140 one-bedroom, 92 two-bedroom, and six three-bedroom floor plans. To meet the 20 percent affordability requirement under the latest ARO guidelines, the development will have 70 on-site units for residents making up to 60 percent of the area median income (AMI). These units will be distributed as 13 studios, nine convertibles, 28 one-bedrooms, 19 two-bedrooms, and one three-bedroom.
This week, YIMBY stopped by the rising core at 1000M, currently Chicago’s fourth tallest construction project. Located at 1000 S Michigan Avenue just across from Grant Park, this 788-foot-tall, 73-story residential tower is set to house a total of 738 rental units. The developer trio of JK Equities, Time Equities, and Oak Capitals had originally planned 506 condominiums, but ultimately pivoted due to the city’s booming apartment market. The skyscraper resumed construction following a nearly two-year hiatus and a $304.5 million loan from Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank.

Planned programming includes 12,000 square feet of first-floor retail, split into units between 1,628 and 2,178 square feet. Atop this mercantile component will be 200 for-rent apartment dwellings, ranging from single-bedroom up to three-bedroom residences.
