Exterior work is nearing completion at the final phase of the Old Town Park re-development in Chicago’s Near North neighborhood.
Old Town Park Phase III, at 228 West Hill Street got its full-build permit on New Years Eve 2019. That permit authorized construction of a 41-story, 456-unit apartment tower.
Old Town Park Phase II, the 39-dtory, 425-unit tower at 202 West Hill Street, got its first permit in December 2017.
The baby of the group, Phase I, got its first permit in February 2016. It has 405 apartments across 32 stories.
That puts developer and general contractor Onni Group in construction mode here just over five years. They also lit up all three tower cranes over the course of this development, so kudos for that, Onni! You’ll always hold a special place in the B.U.C. heart for that alone.
Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is the design architect on Old Town Park.
