Power Construction continues working at ground level on 165 North Desplaines. You remember 165 North Desplaines, right? Gerding Edlen is developing 199 apartments within the 14-story tower designed by GREC Architects. The existing building at the “back” of the lot, at 156 North Jefferson, is also being renovated into dwelling units as part of the project. That portion of the project has its own permits; one for renovation was filed in August.
The foundation permit for 165 North Desplaines was filed in June. We’re still waiting for the full building permit that will allow the tower to start going vertical.
