How busy are things in the West Loop? Look through the snowflakes in the above photo, taken January 26, and you’ll see four new projects lined up along Aberdeen Street.
They are, beginning in the foreground and working south:
165 North Aberdeen
An 11-story mixed-use building from MCZ Development, featuring 90 residential units, with 40,000 square feet of office space and 15,000 square feet of retail space.
McDonald’s Corporation Headquarters
Barley noticeable are the tops of caisson equipment. Sterling Bay is building a new HQ for the McDonald’s Corporation where Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Studios once stood. The 9-story, nearly 500,000-square-foot facility will have McDonald’s as its only tenant.
Look very closely beneath the elevated CTA tracks, and you’ll see the skeleton of CA Washington. Developed by Belgravia Realty Group, CA Washington brings six stories and 60 condos to the neighborhood.
1035 West Van Buren
Finally, way off in the distance you see the yellow forms and tower crane atop 1035 West Van Buren, a 30-story, 300-unit rental tower from Related Midwest.
