Construction is nearing full height for 160 N Morgan Street, a 30-story mixed-use tower in Fulton Market District. Set to stand 350 feet in height, the new high rise by Sterling Bay and Ascentris will yield a total of 282 for-rent apartments atop two levels of retail.
This weekend, Chicago YIMBY had the opportunity to tour the nearly complete 1229 W Concord Place, the first building of the broader Lincoln Yards plan. Developed by Sterling Bay, the plan calls for a 53-acre urban revamp of a former North Branch industrial corridor. This first installation will offer 320,000 square feet of Class A medical research labs geared towards biotechnology and bioscience tenant companies.
Full construction permits have been granted for the mixed-use development at 225 N Elizabeth Street in the Fulton Market District. Located on the corner with W Fulton Street, the project took the 11th place in our 2022 year-end countdown and has started construction with foundation work well underway. Now construction has been cleared to fully rise over its low-height industrial neighbors. Developer Sterling Bay, who is also busy building up Lincoln Yards, and Colorado-based Ascentris are working with local architecture firm Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture on its design.
Chicago’s sixth tallest tower under construction is 360 N Green Street, a 24-story primarily office tower in Fulton Market. Planned by Sterling Bay and poised to stand 399 feet, the building will be one of the tallest to the west of the Kennedy Expressway. The base portion has seen significant progress in the last few months, with both the core and structural pieces already filling out much of the base section.
Quickly rising into the 8th place of this year’s countdown is the mixed-use tower at 160 N Morgan Street in the West Loop. Located just north of famed W Randolph Street in the growing neighborhood, the project recently had its first pieces of facade installed as it grows next to neighborhood stalwart Federales who just announced a Logan Square outpost. Developer Sterling Bay partnered with the Colorado-based equity firm Ascentris, both of which are also working on the 11th place of the countdown 225 N Elizabeth nearby, with bKL Architecture leading the design.
