Since July’s update, foundation work has made extensive progress for Sterling Bay’s mixed-use development at 360 N Green Street in Fulton Market District. The planned 24-story tower will house 5,400 square feet of retail and Class A office space on the upper floors. At 399 feet in height, the project is set to replace a former vacant lot at the intersection of Green and Kinzie.
Initial details have been revealed for a potential off-shore wind farm near 3600 E 95th Street in the East Side community area. Located near the Illinois International Port District close to the state line with Indiana, the new proposal seeks to create the first facility of its kind on the Great Lakes ahead of other states vying for the opportunity. The plans were introduced by State Representatives Marcus Evans Jr. and Robert Peters at a neighborhood meeting this past week in hopes of getting locals on board.
Demolition permits have been issued for a two-story multi-unit residential building located at 2246 W Winnemac Avenue in Lincoln Square. A permit has been filed, but not issued, for the construction of a two-story, single-family home along with a detached two-vehicle garage.
Next in our procession of unbuilt Chicago skyscrapers is the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and Residence Tower, a 107-story supertall that would have been located along North Park Drive, less than a block from the river in Streeterville. Compared to existing Chicago structures, if built, the mixed-use project would have been the third tallest in the city with a 1,265-foot height. More broadly, if it were built at the time of its proposal in 2007, it would have been the seventh tallest in the world. The Prime Group in partnership with Fordham Co. had planned for a three-year construction timeline starting in 2009 and wrapping up in 2012.
