Number 13 in the countdown goes to a newly kicked-off high-rise at 1400 S Wabash Avenue in South Loop, set to rise 30 stories and 316 feet. Developer CMK Companies has planned a mixed-use scheme that will provide ground-floor mercantile space and 299 rental apartment units above. Replacing a formerly vacant lot, the tower will fill a major gap both at the pedestrian level and within the South Loop skyline.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a mixed-use development at 3914 N Lincoln Avenue in North Center. The wedge-shaped structure, bound by N Lincoln Avenue to the east and N Damen Avenue to the west, will replace an empty lot and three buildings on Damen Avenue, one of which is orange-rated. Developer Longford Construction partnered with SPACE Architects + Planners on the masonry clad building.
Claiming the 14th place in the year-end countdown is the mixed-use development at 160 N Elizabeth Street in the West Loop. Located on the corner with W Randolph Street, it replaces two one-story masonry buildings with a Thomas Roszak Architecture designed high-rise developed by Moceri + Roszak. With the site now cleared, Clark Construction is now wrapping up caisson work as the structure recently received foundation permits.
With a demolition permit approved this past Wednesday, equipment can be seen at the future site of 160 N Morgan Street, a 29-story mixed-use high rise planned for West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Developed by Sterling Bay, this 350-foot-tall tower will be replacing a former one-story masonry building.
At number 15 in the year-end countdown of tallest construction projects is 1400 W Randolph Street, aka Parq Fulton, a 26-story mixed-use tower nearing completion at the western end of Fulton Market in West Loop. Marquette Companies‘ plans for the 282-foot project involve 10,000 square feet of mercantile space and 278 rental apartment units. The ground-floor retail will be occupied by one retail space and a new restaurant, which received an interior buildout permit this past October. The apartments, meanwhile, will range from studios through three-bedrooms. Pricewise, studio begin at $2,075, one-bedrooms at $2,549, two-bedrooms at $3,945, and three-bedrooms at $5,685.
