Significant progress can be seen for ALLY at 1229 W Concord Place, an eight-story research-oriented office building along the North Branch corridor. This building serves as the first entry in Sterling Bay’s gargantuan Lincoln Yards master plan, which will ultimately yield 15 million square feet of mixed-use space at a projected cost of $6 billion.
At Fulton Market District‘s 345 N Morgan Street, on the site of a former low-rise masonry building, a much taller replacement high-rise has maxed out at 11 floors and 178 feet tall. This boutique commercial development by Sterling Bay brings an industrial yet refined aesthetic to the rapidly developing neighborhood. The design by Eckenhoff Saunders Architects consists of lighter-tone brick, grand archways and windows, welded metal accents, as well as soaring ceilings to account for the relatively high height-to-floor count ratio.
Developer Sterling Bay has announced a partnership for its 160 N Morgan Street mixed-use development in the West Loop. The joint venture will be with Colorado-based real estate private equity firm Ascentris and will see the ground-breaking of the high-rise in the first quarter of 2022. Designed by local firm bKL Architecture on a mid-block lot that once held a drive-thru bank, the demolition of the existing building has begun with site prep expected to commence soon after.
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.
