John Buck Company Proposes Two-Tower Office Development for 655 W Madison Street in West Loop Gate

The John Buck Company has proposed a major two-tower office development at 655 W Madison Street, set to replace a full-block surface parking lot in West Loop Gate. The development will be staggered, beginning with the taller of the two towers. This first tower will stand 36 stories and span 850,000 square feet. The subsequent shorter tower will encompass 650,000 square feet and link to the taller edifice via a shared five-story podium. In an emerging pattern of new West Loop green space, the podium will be topped by a sprawling one-acre urban park.
