The Chicago Plan Commission has approved plans for the mixed-use development at 1353 W Fulton Street in Fulton Market. Located on the corner with N Ada Street, the new high rise replaces an existing industrial building on the quickly-growing corridor that has seen numerous high-profile proposals including a 600-foot-tall tower in the last few months. Developer Shapack Partners has been working with SOM on the design of the structure, which has undergone a handful of updates since we originally covered its announcement late last year.

The large team includes the church, The University of Chicago, the Preservation of Affordable Housing, Citibank, AECOM as well as SOM and Gensler on the design side.

Developer Shapack Partners has revealed initial plans for a new mixed-use development at 1353 W Fulton Street in the West Loop.

Directly east of the new West End Fulton office building, the tower will allow current tenants to continue operations on the site until mid-next year, this includes the leasing office for the nearby 1400 W Randolph residential tower.
