A foundation permit has been issued for the planned 150 E Ontario Street, kicking off the first high rise to be built in Streeterville in several years. Filling in a long-vacant patch of land within an otherwise dense downtown segment, the new construction will be a 28-story hotel for the Spanish hotel chain RIU Hotels and Resorts. The Prime Group is the developer for this proposal, having also contributed $2.9 million to the Neighborhood Opportunity Fund alongside the project.

The basement level of the University of Illinois Chicago’s new computer science building can be seen taking shape at 900 W Taylor Street in Little Italy. The five-story structure, known as the Computer Design Research and Learning Center, will attach to UIC’s existing Science and Engineering Labs building while adding 135,000 square feet of new programming.
The dual cores have nearly topped out for 1020 W Randolph Street in Fulton Market District. L3 Capital is behind this five-story mixed-use development, yielding ground-floor retail and boutique Class A offices on the upper levels. The top of the building will feature an amenity enclosure and a 1,850-square-foot rooftop deck. Meanwhile, the 22,000 square feet of interior space will offer sleek finishes, living walls, and expansive warehouse-style windows.
Construction for Fulton Market‘s 1020 W Randolph Street is currently wrapping up its foundation phase and is approaching vertical construction. At 22,000 square feet, this five-story building is coincidentally the same floor area as the new Wrigley Field addition that was covered this past Sunday.
With all structural work complete and much of the facade now in place, the seven-story parking and retail structure at 1371 W Randolph Street is now approaching completion. Rising 85 feet, this West Loop project is the latest addition to the Chicago Journeyman Plumbers Local 130 UA Campus, developed in partnership between the union and Chicago Title & Trust Company.
