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.
Taking the 25th spot in our countdown of Chicago’s tallest developments, an updated proposal for a 29-story mixed-use tower at 1130 N State Street in the Near North Side awaits approval. The property is located on a corner lot at the intersection of N State Street and W Elm Street, and would replace the existing shuttered Barnes & Noble store. The Clark/Division CTA L station, serviced by the Red Line, can be accessed within a four-minute walk. The 36 CTA bus route can be accessed on the corner of the site at the State and Elm stop. Newcastle Limited is in charge of the project.
Construction is nearing completion on phase one of the Ogden Commons development in North Lawndale. Located on a larger development site, the new 10-acre, mixed-use project is bounded by W Ogden Avenue, S Washtenaw Avenue, S Talman Avenue, S Rockwell Street, and W 13th Street. Phase one is located at 2652 W Ogden Avenue, between S Washtenaw Avenue and S Talman Avenue.
