As the 30th tallest construction project in Chicago’s year-end countdown and set to stand 155 feet in height, 140 N Ashland Avenue is now making headway in Near West Side. The 12-story building by Marquette Companies will attach to an existing five-story brick building, offering a total 210 rental apartments in addition to first-floor retail. At least 10 percent of the units will be affordable, while the remaining five percent will either be on- or off-site (yet to be indicated).
The lower levels of the superstructure are taking shape for 360 N Green Street, a 24-story mixed-use tower at the northeast corner of Fulton Market. The 399-foot-tall tower is being developed by Sterling Bay directly east of the Guinness Brewery, already in progress.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the final iteration of the Roseland Medical District Masterplan in Roseland. Relatively bound by W 110th Street to the north, S Michigan Avenue to the east, W 112th Street to the south, and S Eggleston Avenue to the west, the plan would sit just east of the future 111th Street station from the CTA Red Line extension. The efforts are being led by the Roseland Medical District Commission who is working with local design firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture on the overall guide.
Facade installation is approaching completion for One Six Six, a 21-story mixed-use tower at 166 N Aberdeen Street in Fulton Market District. At 224 feet in height, the Greystar-developed high rise will give way to 224 rental apartments atop ground-level retail. The site was formerly home to a complex of two-story masonry buildings that included Fabbri’s sausage factory.
A groundbreaking has been held for the mixed-use renovation of the old Covent Hotel at 2653 N Clark Street in Lincoln Park. Located on the corner with W Drummond Place, the project is part of a larger proposal which will bring a new market rate apartment building, however the existing rooming motel will be converted to affordable units. This is being led by the NHP Foundation and Drummond Development with local firm Weese Langley Weese Architects working on its design.
