Chicago’s newest tower crane permit has been issued to erect a parking facility the Plumbers Local 130 has planned for the West Loop. The garage will replace what is now a surface parking lot adjacent to the union’s recently-completing training center at 1400 West Washington. W.E. O’Neil will be the general contractor.
The parking garage itself will float in the middle of the existing surface lot; it won’t extend to the east edge of the block along Ada Street. There are other plans for that space.
You can follow this link to the Chicago Plan Commission’s presentation for a whole boatload of specs and info. They approved the six-story, 500-space facility, with ground-level retail, in December 2020. No word yet on when construction is expected to begin.
