Permits are in hand, foundations are set, and the tower crane is up at 50 East Randolph Street in The Loop. That’s where Moceri + Roszak are replacing a parking garage and cheap food (though I admit to having been a fan of the Qdoba that was here) with a 26-story residential tower at the corner of Randolph and Wabash.
Parkline is a design by Thomas Roszak Architecture. It will consist of 213 units, according to a foundation permit issued by the City of Chicago back in November. Some will be rentals, some will be condos. Also included will be 68 parking spots and ground-floor commercial space, all with an anticipated opening in 2021.
Crain’s Chicago had a lot of information about Parkline in May of last year (holy moley, 2019 was last year already.)
Clark Construction is the general contractor for this tower. And, in names that don’t get enough shout-outs on this blog, Adjustable Concrete Construction is in charge of the concrete and tower crane, while Thornton Tomasetti is the structural engineer. They did work for The Vessel at Hudson Yards in Manhattan. That alone makes them heroes. Have you seen that thing?
I didn’t go to Hudson Yards on New Year’s Day, but I did stop by the Parkline construction site. Want proof? It’s in the photos below, along with a batch of Parkline renderings from Thomas Roszak Architecture.
