177 North Morgan will be a one-story retail building in the heart of the development-furious West Loop. Crain’s Chicago wrote back in July that Shapack Partners had lined up Shake Shack as one tenant for the space. LG Construction, the general contractor on the project, is hard at work on foundations. The design is by Bureau of Architecture and Design in River North.
The demolition of the previous structure on the site revealed an old advertisement on the bricks of the Music Box Films building next door, at 173 North Morgan Street. Presumably, it will disappear once again as 177 rises to its full one-story height.
