Last week, Chicago YIMBY had the opportunity to step inside 800 Fulton, a 19-story office and retail building that recently completed construction in West Loop‘s Fulton Market District. Developed by Thor Equities alongside joint venture partner QuadReal, the 300-foot monolith at 800 W Fulton Market spans nearly half a million square feet, offering tenants column-free layouts, private terraces, and 13-foot floor spans. The lower three levels offer 35,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.
Revised designs have been revealed for the two-tower project at 1112 W Carroll Avenue and 315 N May Street in the West Loop. ESG Architects presented the new plans along with developer Trammell Crow to the West Loop Community Organization; changes to the design were developed based on comments received during the inaugural meeting of the Committee on Design last month.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved a mixed-use development at 160 N Morgan Street in the West Loop. Slightly revised plans for the bKL Architecture-designed residential high-rise were presented by developer Sterling Bay as they continue to build up the former meat packing industrial area. Facing N Morgan street, the site which once held a drive-thru bank turned Gucci store pop-up, will give residents direct access to restaurant row, the CTA Green Line, and next door Federales bar.
Glass, metal, and brick continues to envelope the 12-story mixed-use building known as 1045 on Fulton Market currently underway in West Loop‘s Fulton Market District. The 150,000-square-foot development, planned by Fulton Street Companies alongside Intercontinental Real Estate is set to house a combination of ground-level retail and office space on the upper floors. The new structure, officially addressed as 1045 W Fulton Market, is replacing a former parking lot and single-story masonry building.
A portion of the structural and facade work is now above grade for 133 S Ashland Avenue, a planned four-story residential building near the southwest corner of West Loop. The development received permits in September 2020 under the owner name 133 Ashland Land LLC.
