The Chicago Plan Commission has approved plans for the mixed-use development at 1353 W Fulton Street in Fulton Market. Located on the corner with N Ada Street, the new high rise replaces an existing industrial building on the quickly-growing corridor that has seen numerous high-profile proposals including a 600-foot-tall tower in the last few months. Developer Shapack Partners has been working with SOM on the design of the structure, which has undergone a handful of updates since we originally covered its announcement late last year.
Move-ins have begun for the new six-story building at 1123 W Randolph Street in West Loop. This mixed-use mid rise by Interra Realty comes with retail spanning the lower two levels, while the upper floors house a total of nine for-rent apartment units.

Just north of the Metra tracks, the project will yield a total of 343 for-rent units atop ground-level retail.

The project comes from developer Mike Breheny who is working with local architects Studio Dwell on the masonry-clad building.
