The Tribune East Tower, the recently approved supertall expected to rise 1,422 feet, takes the number one spot in YIMBY’s countdown as Chicago’s tallest development. Poised to become Chicago’s second tallest building, Tribune East is part of the Tribune Tower redevelopment project, which includes the conversion of the original Tribune Tower into 162 condominium units. Developers CIM Group and Golub & Company are leading the development of the $700 million structure that will replace a surface parking lot originally used by Chicago Tribune employees.
The residential complex known as Elm 551 is nearing exterior completion at 551 W Elm Street in Near North Side. Developed by Holsten Real Estate, the project comprises of a seven-story residential building, as well as a pair of three-story townhome buildings. The mixed-income development will house 102 units and is part of a larger redevelopment scheme known as Parkside of Old Town.
Construction permits have been issued for a four-story residential building located at 3348 N Ashland Avenue in Lake View. The owner, filed under Kyle Nikolich, is planning four units, a rooftop deck, a two-car garage, and additional outdoor parking stalls. The project will replace a 3.5-story frame structure with a masonry base.
Final exterior touches remain near the base of St. Regis Chicago (formerly Vista Tower), a 101-story mixed-use skyscraper at 375 E Wacker Drive in Lakeshore East. Developed by Magellan Group, the tower reaches 1,191 feet in height, claiming the second spot in Chicago YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown and garnering “supertall” status at over 984 feet.
Renderings have been revealed for a proposed residential development located at 4600 N Marine Drive in Uptown. Poised to replace an existing parking lot, the building will rise at the intersection of N Marine Drive and W Wilson Avenue. Lincoln Property Company is the developer behind the proposal.
