The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a mixed-use development at 160 N Morgan Street in the West Loop. Slightly revised plans for the bKL Architecture-designed residential high-rise were presented by developer Sterling Bay as they continue to build up the former meat packing industrial area. Facing N Morgan street, the site which once held a drive-thru bank turned Gucci store pop-up, will give residents direct access to restaurant row, the CTA Green Line, and next door Federales bar.
Construction permits have been issued for a new five-story mixed-use building located at 4920 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Square. The developer, Marta Landrosh Properties, plans for ground-level retail and 14 total condominium dwellings on the upper four floors.

Last week, structural work reached the 510-foot-tall pinnacle of a new 47-story mixed-use skyscraper, located at 300 N Michigan Avenue in The Loop.

Located on the south end of the former Cabrini-Green area, the project will benefit from being located near the new Halsted Pointe development and Sterling Bay’s recently renovated 600 West Chicago Avenue.
