166 North Aberdeen hits the Construction Trifecta: It’s topped out, glassy, and renamed. Hello One Six Six

One Six Six Chicago in the West Loop

166 North Aberdeen used to be on the rise, glassless, and 166 North Aberdeen. You can forget all of that.

One Six Six is now topped out, and the first couple levels above the podium are glazed. Those are all big milestones for the 21-story, 224-unit apartment tower from MCZ Development and Greystar. (The tower topped out two weeks or so ago.) Congratulations are in order for the construction team of Lendlease (GC) and Pepper Construction (concrete) and design architect Solomon Cordwell Buenz.

How that topping out has been achieved, crews need to get the rest of the exterior glazed and the interior ready for One Six Six’s anticipated Fall Opening.

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.
