Brown Line riders: Keep your eyes to the west as you ride between Merchandise Mart and Chicago Avenue. The empty lots along Franklin Street on Erie and Huron are changing.
North Wells Capital has three buildings planned for this stretch of River North, and one of them just got started. Officially an “addition” to the existing office building at 308 West Erie, 306 West Erie will be a five stories high, according to North Wells Linkedin post, or seven stories, according to the renovation permit issued to 308 back in December. The rendering sure looks like five to me. Offices at 311 and 320 West Huron will follow.
You can read more about, and see renderings of, the project at:
