Construction has begun on foundations for Wolf Point South, also known as Salesforce Tower, and will rise 813 feet over 58 stories. Addressed as 333 W Wolf Point Plaza in River North, the tower will stand at the three-way fork of the Chicago River, with the other two towers, Wolf Point West and Wolf Point East, sitting to the sides of it. Permit filings show that the foundation permits were issued in April, approving the construction of the caissons and foundation structure up to grade level, including the below-grade parking. Permits for Phase 1 of construction, covering foundation construction and tower crane installation and use, were issued this past week. Full building permits have been filed for the tower portion of the project, but await approval. Wolf Point South, LLC is the owner behind the applications.
YIMBY spotted what appears to be a test facade piece on the lot of 1325 W Fulton Market, a project developed by Sterling Bay and designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Located at the west end of the rising Fulton Market neighborhood, the site is located at the corner of W Fulton Market and N Ada Street, just across from Sterling Bay’s Fulton West at 1330 W Fulton Market. Nearby bus transit is a nine-minute walk southwest to the 9 route’s Ashland & Lake stop, as well as a nine-minute walk southeast to the 19 route’s Washington & Racine bus stop. Nearby CTA L stops include a seven-minute walk southwest to Ashland Station and a ten-minute walk southeast to Morgan Station, both of which are serviced by the Green and Pink Lines.
Construction is well underway at 800 W Fulton Market, a large office space development in the northwest corner of the fast-developing Fulton Market neighborhood.
