Demolition is now complete at 166 N Aberdeen Street in West Loop, clearing the way for a new 20-story mixed-use tower by MCZ Development. Standing 241 feet to its pinnacle, the building will house a collection of retail, dining, and offices on the lower floors, with 236 apartments housed above. The project serves as the second and taller phase of a two-part plan, with the first building at 171 N Aberdeen Street completed in 2018.

Taking the 24th spot in YIMBY’s countdown of Chicago’s tallest developments, the approved tower at 344 N Canal Street will rise 375 feet above its site in the Fulton River District. The project is located on the west side of N Canal Street between W Kinzie Street and W Fulton Street. The lot is an irregular shape with spurs that extend to N Clinton Street, around a railroad abutment. The new development will replace the existing Cassidy Tire building.
Demolition permits have been issued for a pair of low-rise masonry buildings, paving the way for a new 20-story tower at 166 N Aberdeen Street. The building will stretch 220 feet to roof and 241 feet to the parapet, making it one of the taller buildings in West Loop.
