Construction is nearing the vertical halfway mark for the 50-story BMO Tower, set to extend the Chicago skyline further southwest into West Loop Gate. Located at 320 S Canal Street, the 727-foot-tall edifice ranks ninth in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown of tallest new developments.
The Commission on Chicago Landmarks has approved the demolition of structures at 906 and 910 W Fulton Market in Fulton Market. Located at the corner of W Fulton Market and N Peoria Street, the two structures are part of a redevelopment project spanning between 900 and 910 W Fulton Market. Shorewood Development Group is in charge of the project.
Demolition permits have been issued for a three-story frame residential building, located at 218 W 24th Street near the southeast corner of Chinatown. The owner, listed in the permit as Victor Kuo, plans to replace the current structure with a three-story residential building. The not-yet-issued construction permit shows that the building will contain three total units, as well as a basement and three on-grade parking spaces. Neither an architect nor renderings have yet been revealed.
The approved Parcel O tower at Lakeshore East breaks into the top 10 of our Chicago’s tallest development countdown. Located at 195 N Columbus Drive, the site within the larger megadevelopment is currently a vacant lot. Studio Gang’s Aqua Tower neighbors the property to the north while the Blue Cross Blue Shield Tower by Goettsch Partners stands just to the south. Magellan Development Group is in charge of the project.
