Initial brickwork can be seen for a five-story residential building located at 120 N Willard Court, just south of the Randolph Street commercial corridor in West Loop. The development will replace a pre-Chicago Fire single-family residence, which received demolition permits last December.
With foundation work now underway, construction has begun for a nine-story commercial addition at 732 W Randolph Street in Fulton Market District. Developer Acosta Ezgur plans for the structure to connect with two other buildings just to the east, the adjacent structure at 730 W Randolph Street is a landmarked six-story building with office and retail, and the other is a 12-story building with condominiums and flexible commercial space. Combined, this assemblage has been marketed as “Randolph Office Center.”
Facade brickwork continues along the new seven-story West Loop condominium building known as CA6. This 72-unit building by Belgravia Group is located at 311 S Racine Avenue, and represents the developer’s sixth installation to the West Loop area.
Excavation and initial drilling is moving along for a new 18-story residential tower at 1044 W Van Buren Street, located just north of I-290 in West Loop. Developer Tandem has planned for 196 rental apartments atop ground-level retail. This new development will replace a formerly empty lot while also adding to an emerging high-rise cluster at the southern end of the neighborhood.
Initial site work has been spotted at the site of 817 W Lake Street in West Loop‘s Fulton Market district. Developer Sancerre Realty has planned for a new patio area to accompany the adjacent BLVD Steakhouse. While these plans were originally intended to be temporary in anticipation for a new seven-story mixed-use building, the permit filing from January this year indicates that the patio will be permanent.
