This week, YIMBY captured shots of the near-complete demolition at 1200 W Fulton Street in Fulton Market, set to give rise to a major new three-building development. The full-block plan will replace a parking lot and three existing one-story industrial buildings, delivering 1.5 million square feet of mixed-use space and designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture (HPA). The developer, Fulton Street Companies, is spearheading the development alongside Waterton, a local landlord company, and Harrison Street Real Estate Capital.
Final facade touches have wrapped up for a new five-story mixed-use building at 1020 W Randolph Street in Fulton Market. Within the he developer, L3 Capital, is ground-floor retail and Class A office space above, as well as a 2,500-square-foot rooftop deck.
Now at the 20th floor mark, 225 N Elizabeth Street is steadily approaching its final height of 28 stories in the Fulton Market District. This mixed-use project is already making a significant impact on the cityscape as one of the pioneering new towers in the area. It is part of a transformative wave that will turn the low-rise industrial meatpacking district into a mixed-use urban center with a density comparable to that of Streeterville. The project, a collaboration between Sterling Bay and Ascentris, is taking shape on the site of a former parking lot at the intersection of Fulton Street and Elizabeth Street.
Updated renderings have been revealed for the upcoming Bally’s casino at 777 W Chicago Avenue in River West. Located on the corner with N Halsted Street and replacing the Chicago Tribune printing facility on the site, the casino has received a partial redesign which mainly changed the exterior but leaves the previously proposed interior the same. Rhode Island-based Bally’s is leading the charge for their new flagship property with multiple firms working on its design including SCB, Gensler, Site Design Group, Urbanworks, STL Architects, and NIA Architects among others.
