Midwest Property Group has a foundation permit for 448 North LaSalle

Who knows what the actual address will be, but in the follow-up to a tower crane permit being issued (way back in November) for 151 West Illinois Street in River North, a foundation permit was issued Wednesday for 448 North LaSalle. That permit allows for construction to begin through the first three levels of a 13-story building. The developer, Midwest Property Group, uses 430 North LaSalle as the address here, so we now have three different physical addresses related to this build.

I *think* this is going to be an office building, with retail space at street level. If so, ride to work, don’t drive. You’ll be able to park 40 or so of your bikes here, but no cars.

Lamar Johnson Collaborative is the design architect on 151/430/448. Lendlease is the GC. Crews have already been busy with site prep, tearing apart what used to be a dreaded surface parking lot.

Here’s a very clumsily-copied rendering I lifted from the pdf Alderman Reilly’s office shared with the public back in March.
