The Permit Review Committee, a subcommittee of the Commission on Chicago Landmarks, has approved the adaptive reuse of the former Morton Salt Warehouse Complex. Located at 1357 N Elston Avenue in West Town, the former manufacturing complex is bound by the north branch of the Chicago river to the east, N Elston Avenue to the west, and W Blackhawk Street to the north. The nearest public transportation is the 70 CTA Route accessed at the Division and Elston bus stop, a five-minute walk from the property. The Division CTA L station on the Blue Line is a 13-minute walk away. Blue Star Properties is developing the project in collaboration with R2 Companies.

Recent photos show work being wrapped up on the conversion of The Loop‘s Marshall Field & Company building at 24 E Washington Street. When complete it will house new office space in the top six levels of its 13 floors.
Topping off at 13 stories, 448 N LaSalle Drive has reached its full height in River North. YIMBY previously reported on the office development which filed for construction permits this past spring. Construction photos currently show the building’s structure reaching the final floor, where the rooftop deck will be. Additionally, the main curtain wall now covers the first seven floors, with the eighth floor partially installed.
