1123 W Randolph Nears Full Height in West Loop

Structural work has reached the roof level for a six-story mixed-use building located at 1123 W Randolph Street in West Loop. The project is being developed by Interra Realty, who plans retail space on the first two floors and nine apartments on the third through sixth floors.
