ALLY at 1229 W Concord makes its presence known along the Chicago River

ALLY at 1229 W Concord on the rise along the Chicago River

ALLY at 1229 W Concord, Sterling Bay’s life sciences development (it’s at 1229 W Concord, as you may have already figured out) has reached full height. Next milestone is to wrap that bay up in glass and let it shine along the North Branch of the Chicago River.

Sunday wasn’t my first visit to ALLY; I stopped by as they were erecting the tower crane on November 9 of last year, but I’ll be darned if I haven’t lost all the photos from that day, save for a couple of them I tweeted.

ALLY at 1229 W Concord is a design by Gensler, with Power Construction acting as the general contractor and Adjustable Concrete Construction on concrete. It’s the first of lots more to come at Lincoln Yards, which should keep us construction nerds entertained for a long, long time. The nine-story, 280,000-square-foot facility will include seven lab floors and lower-level parking for 55 cars. Expect delivery next year.

Enjoying the photos? Metra and CTA rides (and Amtrak trains to Milwaukee), Zipcars, Divvy Bikes, camera lenses, domain fees, snacks & energy drinks, and comfortable walking shoes add up. You can help offset expenses by making a greatly-appreciated donation to Building Up Chicago.
