A tower crane permit has now been issued for a mixed-use development at 741 N Wells Street in River North. Developer Vista Property Group has planned for a 21-story to rise atop a historic three-story masonry building just south of the Chicago & Wells intersection. Programming will provide 9,400 square feet of retail and 178 apartment units.
Construction is set to begin in early June for a 16-story commercial building at 311 W Huron Street in River North. This retail and office building has been planned by North Wells Capital. This past February, the developer secured an $88 million lease with the anchor tenant Spins, who will occupy 48,000 square feet within the top three floors. The 226-foot-tall edifice will replace a former parking lot just west of the elevated CTA L tracks.
Now standing its final height of 850 feet, the 60-story Salesforce Tower in River North has now removed its tower crane. Well on track to reach completion by next year, this glassy skyscraper at 333 Wolf Point Plaza will be the city’s 17th tallest skyscraper. It will also mark the final installment in a three-part megadevelopment by Hines known as Wolf Point. Located at the confluence of the Chicago River, this scheme also includes a 500-foot apartment tower known as Wolf Point West, as well as a 679-foot apartment tower dubbed Wolf Point East.
Foundation work is progressing on HUGO, LG Development‘s two-building development located at 751 N Hudson Avenue and 411 W Chicago Avenue in River North. The two nine-story buildings will be nearly adjacent to one another, separated by an existing low-rise masonry building. Combined, the mixed-use edifices will span 230,000 square feet, occupied by 19,000 square feet of mercantile space and 227 apartments.
The final steel pieces are being added to Salesforce Tower Chicago, rising 60 stories at 333 W Wolf Point Plaza in River North. This 850-foot-tall skyscraper is the final, and tallest, staple in Hines‘ three-part masterplan known as Wolf Point. With more than a third of its floor area anchored by the tech giant Salesforce, the 1.4 million-square-foot edifice will house primarily offices, below which will be retail and dining within its base.
