With mainly landscaping work now remaining, exterior construction has been completed for Onni‘s 33-story residential building dubbed Onni Fulton Market, located at 354 N Union Avenue in Fulton River District. At 410 feet in height, the Onni-developed tower will provide 373 new rental apartments to a rapidly growing cluster of high rises at the northwest corner of downtown.
Yesterday, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for a new three-building mixed-income housing development known as Schiller Place Apartments in Near North Side. Situated at 711, 731 and 749 W Schiller Street, the project is a collaboration between co-developers Structured Development and Evergreen Real Estate Group and governmental bodies such as the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) and Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA).
Full building permits have been issued for the residential development at 3449 N Ashland Avenue in Lake View. This third and final phase of a larger block-long project will sit on the southeast corner with W Cornelia Avenue and finish the replacement of the Loyola Press building that stood on the site for 97 years. Developed under an LLC for the address, Contemporary Concepts Inc is the company behind the three structures and have been working with Studio Dwell Architects on all of their designs.
Final facade touches can be seen at 120 N Willard Court, a five-story residential building just south of the Randolph Street in West Loop. The development will replace a pre-Chicago Fire single-family residence, which received demolition permits last December. The project is set to yield seven total units and seven parking spaces.
By Fulton Market‘s height standards, a towering new residential development has been proposed for the 375 N Morgan Street, lying adjacently west of the underway Guinness Brewery project. Spearheading both projects on the two adjacent parcels, developer Fred Latsko has called for a nearly 40-story building with more than 500 for-rent units. Given its similar number of floors to the nearly topped-out 900 Randolph, we can likely expect a height in the range between 450 and 500 feet. Latsko had previously mulled plans for a 30-story office development, but has shifted due to ever-increasing apartment demand and the lifting of the neighborhood’s moratorium on new residential developments.
