With cladding not far behind, structural work has now topped out for 1044 W Van Buren Street, an 18-story mixed-use high rise along the southern edge of West Loop. Previously a two-story masonry building, the site is being developed by Tandem, whose plans call for a total of 196 for-rent apartments atop a ground-level retail component.
Steel has officially reached its full height for a six-story condominium building known as “Madison + Carpenter,” located at 6 N Carpenter Street in West Loop. Real estate developer ZSD is planning to construct 13 condominiums, with four- and five-bedroom residences available. The project will replace a set of lower brick buildings that were demolished last year.
Final facade touches can be seen at 120 N Willard Court, a five-story residential building just south of the Randolph Street in West Loop. The development will replace a pre-Chicago Fire single-family residence, which received demolition permits last December. The project is set to yield seven total units and seven parking spaces.
Construction has surpassed the third level for Embry, a 15-story condominium development situated at 21 N May Street near the center of West Loop. Planned by Sulo Development, the high rise will contain a total of 58 for-sale units ranging from two- to four-bedroom houses and ranging in size from 1,828 to 5,187 square feet. The construction of this 207-foot-tall building will fill the space of an old, vacant lot where a two-story masonry structure used to stand.
In a dramatically busy week, another residential tower has been proposed for 1234 W Randolph Street in Fulton Market. The joint venture behind these plans, comprised of Azur Holdings and Golub, have filed a zoning application calling for a 42-story tower with 400 apartment residences, of which 80 will be affordable under ARO guidelines.
