Leading up to 2021, YIMBY will be checking in on Chicago’s tallest projects under development and construction. Beginning at number 31 in our list, 1400 W Randolph Street is a 26-story mixed-use tower, rising 274 feet. Located in the West Loop, the development site is a corner lot at the intersection of W Randolph Street and N Ogden Avenue. The nearest public transportation is Ashland CTA L station, serviced by the Green and Pink Lines, a five-minute walk away.
Construction is nearing completion on phase one of the Ogden Commons development in North Lawndale. Located on a larger development site, the new 10-acre, mixed-use project is bounded by W Ogden Avenue, S Washtenaw Avenue, S Talman Avenue, S Rockwell Street, and W 13th Street. Phase one is located at 2652 W Ogden Avenue, between S Washtenaw Avenue and S Talman Avenue.
Work is nearing completion for the third and final stretch of Navy Pier Flyover, a 1,750-foot-long elevated bikeway/walkway that replaces a portion of the Lakefront trail near the namesake pier. Planned by the Department of Transportation, the project will reconcile the paths to the north and the south, previously encumbered by uneven terrain and water.
