The Lincoln Yards mega-development is set to enter its next phase as two of its riverfront parcels, D2 and D3, are scheduled to break ground next month. Following the completion of the life sciences ofice building at 1229 W Concord early this year, developer Sterling Bay has reevaluated the phasing plan for the Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture and Gensler-designed project, likely due to shifts in the economy. This adjustment prioritizes the development of mixed-use structures at the D2 and D3 parcels, located just north of 1229 W Concord.
This weekend, Chicago YIMBY had the opportunity to tour the nearly complete 1229 W Concord Place, the first building of the broader Lincoln Yards plan. Developed by Sterling Bay, the plan calls for a 53-acre urban revamp of a former North Branch industrial corridor. This first installation will offer 320,000 square feet of Class A medical research labs geared towards biotechnology and bioscience tenant companies.
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.
Welcomes to Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown. Now in its third year, we invite you to come back every day this month as we count down new tall developments populating our skyline. Similar to years past, we will showcase 31 projects across the city in alignment with our sister sites like New York YIMBY.
Construction and landscaping are quickly nearing completion for 1229 W Concord Place in West Town. The eight-story biosciences office building is part of Sterling Bay‘s much larger Lincoln Yards project, which covers 55 acres and is expected to bring new commercial, residential, and recreational spaces to the north branch of Chicago River.
