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.
Core work for Salesforce Tower Chicago, aka Wolf Point South, now stands at around 20 stories, with the main structural frame beginning to rise around it. Planned by Hines and located at 333 Wolf Point Plaza in the southwest corner of River North, the 60-story office tower serves as the tallest and final staple to the company’s three-act megadevelopment known as Wolf Point.
Renovation permits have been issued for an existing four-story masonry building located at 23 W Hubbard Street in River North. Filed under the owner 9-25 W. Hubbard LLC, the top three office floors will be converted to six residential units, while the existing ground-level retail and basement will be retained.
