Construction Progress: 801 South Financial nowhere near Alta-mate height

Alta Roosevelt

Alta Roosevelt, 801 South Financial Place, is done spreading out. Now it’s going skyward.

Get it? Because it’s called “Alta Roosevelt.” This is what happens with no editor to reel me in.

Alta Roosevelt is the 33-story apartment tower Wood Partners is building at 801 South Financial Place in the South Loop. Walsh Construction started hammering away at the foundations back in the spring, and now the Pappageorge Haymes Partners design sits six stories above the ground, with the core rising slightly higher. When all is said and done, Alta Roosevelt will contain 496 apartments and 348 parking spaces. No retail space, though.
