With an official groundbreaking ceremony having taken place earlier this month, construction is now underway for a new 21-story mixed-use development at Fulton Market District‘s 166 N Aberdeen Street. This 220-foot-tall edifice planned by MCZ Development will provide 224 apartments atop ground-level retail. There will also be 70 off-street parking spaces and 50 bike spaces included in a ground-level garage. The new construction will replace the now-demolished Fabbri Sausage Factory, and will serve as the second phase of a two-building masterplan. The first stage of this plan was a shorter 11-story mixed-use building that lies directly across Aberdeen and was completed in 2018.
Facade work is drawing towards completion for a four-story residential building known as The Grace Apartments, located at 957 W Grace Street and 3763 N Sheffield Avenue in Lake View. MCZ Development is behind the 50-unit project, whose completed has been staggered across two separate phases. The already-completed portion houses 40 of the units, while the remaining 10 are in a still-in-progress wing located at the southern end. These two phases occupied separate parcels of land, for which the developer received approval to combine by the Committee on Zoning, Landmarks, and Building standards.
Demolition is now complete at 166 N Aberdeen Street in West Loop, clearing the way for a new 20-story mixed-use tower by MCZ Development. Standing 241 feet to its pinnacle, the building will house a collection of retail, dining, and offices on the lower floors, with 236 apartments housed above. The project serves as the second and taller phase of a two-part plan, with the first building at 171 N Aberdeen Street completed in 2018.
