Topping out at the seventh spot of Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown is the Cirrus condominium development in Lakeshore East. Reaching a height of 562 feet, the tower is part of a greater project that is building up the last plots of land near the water of the multi-decade masterplan for the neighborhood. Developers Lendlease and Magellan have worked with bKL Architecture, whose office is in the nearby Aqua Tower, on the three-tower plan.
An exterior transformation is taking shape at 600 N Dearborn Street in River North, where a 21-story condominium building known as The Farallon is being repainted from a light beige to a dark gray. The current work will visually distinguish the 161-unit tower from a deluge of other postmodern buildings that sprout up around the turn of the century.
A full completion and move-ins are fast approaching for the new 47-story condominium tower known as Cirrus, situated at Lakeshore East‘s 211 N Harbor Drive. Developed by Lendlease and Magellan, the 350-unit tower is part of a larger masterplan occupying parcels I, J, K, and L within the Lakeshore East masterplan.
This week, the 37-story apartment tower known as Cascade and the adjacent Cascade Park both officially opened in Chicago’s Lakeshore Eastc neighborhood. Lendlease and Magellan have co-developed the overall project, which includes Cascade tower, a taller 47-story condominium tower known as Cirrus, and the public Cascade Park located at the foot of the towers.
Work on the new 0.8-acre Cascade Park is wrapping up as part of Lendlease and Magellan Development Group‘s Cirrus & Cascade masterplan in Lakeshore East. While the park is to be privately owned and maintained, it will be open to both residents and the public. The park slopes downward from west to east, connecting the elevated N Harbor Drive to the lower lakefront level.
