Coming in at #12 in Chicago’s tallest construction projects is 868 N Wells Street, a 27-story mixed-use building in Near North Side. The tower is the second addition to JDL‘s North Union megadevelopment. This expansive $1.3 billion masterplan encompasses a total of 2.9 million square feet of space, 2,656 residences, a multitude of commercial units, and 100,000 square feet of public areas. This comprehensive plan is designed to bring a variety of resources and amenities to the local community.
Capturing the 15th spot in this year’s countdown is the mixed-use development at 410 S Wabash Avenue in The Loop. Located on the southwest corner with E Van Buren Street, the structure will replace a vacant surface lot directly adjacent to the famed CTA tracks that give the neighborhood its name. North Carolina-based developer Lennar Multifamily Company which recently rebranded as Quarterra is behind the project along with architecture firm Antunovich Associates on its design.
This year’s countdown continues with The Lydian at 513 S Damen Avenue in the Illinois Medical District taking the 19th place. The structure claimed the 19th place in last year’s countdown as well when it had recently broken ground, but now the development races towards completion just south of the intersection with W Congress Parkway. Local developer Marquette Companies, who is also behind a handful of projects around the West Loop’s Union Park, is leading the charge with architecture firm Brininstool + Lynch having worked on its design.
Ranking 25th in the year-end countdown of tallest Chicago construction projects, 920 N Wells Street is continuing facade installation in Near North Side. The 21-story tower developed by JDL is the first step in a larger $1.3 billion development known as North Union.
Rising into the 26th place on our year-end countdown is the mixed-use development at 210 N Aberdeen Street in the West Loop. Located not too far from yesterday’s entry of Embry, the multi-mass project is near the intersection with W Fulton Street. The team at LG Development Group worked with local architecture firm NORR on its design with Power Construction executing on the plans.
