Last week, One Chicago celebrated the topping out of its taller east tower, marking a key milestone in JDL‘s River North megadevelopment. Spanning 2.2 million square feet, the mixed-use project comprises of two glassy residential towers atop a central podium. The shorter west tower rises 49 stories and 574 feet, while its eastern neighbor stretches 76 stories and 971 feet in height.
One Chicago Square
Construction has reached the 800-foot-tall mark for the east tower at One Chicago Square, a 2.2 million-square-foot megadevelopment in the northeast corner of River North. Planned by JDL and Sterling Bay, the project involves a pair of 49- and 74-story skyscrapers rising 574 and 971 feet in height, respectively, the latter of which will be Chicago’s eighth tallest building upon its completion.
Structural work is nearly two-thirds complete on the 74- and 49-story towers that comprise JDL‘s massive One Chicago Square mixed-use development, located near the northeast corner of River North. Set to reach 971 and 574 feet to their respective pinnacles, the taller eastern tower takes third place in Chicago YIMBY’s end-of-year development countdown.
One Chicago Square has surpassed the vertical halfway mark for both its 74- and 49-story towers. Developed by JDL, the mixed-use project will max out at 971 feet in height and make a substantial impact on the cityscape in the River North neighborhood. Since YIMBY’s last update in August, each tower has climbed about 13 floors, with the structurally completed floor count now around 41 and 28, respectively.
YIMBY has north- and east-facing photos from the 41st floor of Wolf Point East, a 679-foot-tall, 60-story residential building in River North. The photos show the scope and magnitude of several projects under construction around downtown.
