At eighth place in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown is 300 N Michigan Avenue, a 47-story mixed-use skyscraper developed by Sterling Bay at the northeast corner of The Loop. Rising 523 feet to its pinnacle, this nearly complete tower will house retail within its podium, a hotel on floors six to 15, and apartments on the 17th through 46th floors. The hotel portion will be a 280-key CitizenM, while the residential portion, dubbed “Millie on Michigan” will yield a total of 289 rental units.
With a demolition permit approved this past Wednesday, equipment can be seen at the future site of 160 N Morgan Street, a 29-story mixed-use high rise planned for West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Developed by Sterling Bay, this 350-foot-tall tower will be replacing a former one-story masonry building.
Claiming the 25th spot in the 2021 Chicago YIMBY year-end countdown is 345 N Morgan Street in the West Loop with a final height of 178 feet upon completion. Located across the street from the Google midwest headquarters and south of the Metra tracks, the 11-story building will deliver 230,000 square feet of space of which 200,000 will be allocated for office space.
Claiming the 30th spot in Chicago YIMBY’s year-end countdown, Sterling Bay’s ALLY at 1229 W Concord Place is now rising above grade along the North Branch Corridor. The structure will be oriented toward medical research companies, offering 280,000 square feet of Class A medical research lab space and attached conference and creative office space. The 144-foot-tall edifice serves as the first step in the developer’s 55-acre Lincoln Yards masterplan, set to yield nearly 15 million square feet of mixed-use programming at a projected cost of $6 billion.
Since YIMBY’s September update, glass has steadily enclosed most of the remaining floors at 300 N Michigan Avenue, a 47-story skyscraper that recently topped out in the northeast corner of The Loop. Developers Magellan Development Group and Sterling Bay have planned a mix of retail in the base, a 280-key CitizenM hotel on the sixth through 15th floors, and residential apartments on the 17th through 45th floors.
