The Chicago City Council has given the green light for 640 W Randolph Street, a 15-story mixed-use development project in the West Loop Gate neighborhood. The development, situated at the intersection with N Des Plaines Street, will replace an existing surface parking lot near the highway. Vista Property Group and Antunovich Associates, who have previously collaborated on projects at 741 N Wells and 609 W Randolph, are the driving force behind this new development, employing a similar industrial-inspired design approach.

The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the mixed-use development at 640 W Randolph Street in West Loop Gate. Located on the northwest corner of the intersection with N Des Plaines Street, the slim proposal will be replacing a surface parking lot and joining a row of brick-clad commercial buildings near the highway. The team of Vista Property Group and designers Antunovich Associates is back after working on 741 N Wells and 609 W Randolph nearby, utilizing a similar design language.
With its loft-window-style curtain wall continuing to take shape, construction has now passed the 20th floor for 741 N Wells Street, a 21-story mixed-use development in River North. The 201,000-square-foot Vista Property project will be composed of 168 residential units above several retail stores; all while integrating with the two-story masonry building to its north.
Dark glass can now be seen along the rising 741 N Wells Street, a 21-story mixed-use development in River North. Vista Property’s 201,000-square-foot project will house 168 apartments above ground-level retail establishments, all while respecting the historical two-story masonry building situated north of it.
The committee on design is now reviewing two mixed-use high rises at 370 N Morgan Street and 400 N Morgan Street in West Loop‘s Fulton Market. Located on the west side of the intersection with W Kinzie Street, the multi-phase project will eventually see a third tower join it at 401 N Morgan Street on the northeast corner. The three towers are being developed by Vista Properties, whose plans will replace what is currently a mix of surface lots and existing one- to two-story industrial buildings just north of the Metra tracks. Gensler is responsible for the designs.
