As caisson work continues, 741 North Wells scores its full permit for 168 apartments in River North

No, they’re not trying to uproot the Hancock Center. They’re doing caisson work at 741 North Wells.

As caisson work digs in at 741 Nort Wells in River North, the final piece of the permit puzzle has fallen into place, and Vista Property Group and Skender received the full permit to build 21 stories on Thursday.

741 North Wells will be a 178-unit apartment tower. It was designed by Antunovich Associates Architects, and according to their website, will offer a mix of 70 studios, 68 one-bedroom, and 40 two-bedroom units, with “a full complement of amenities including a rooftop terrace with pool, meeting facilities, exercise area, bicycle storage, and parking for roughly 50 vehicles.” There will also be about 9.400 square feet of street-level retail space.

Adjustable Concrete Construction is assisting Skender as the concrete contractor, while Stalworth Underground is out there drilling the caissons.

The City of Chicago issued permits for:
The full build on 8/25/2022
Caissons and foundation on 7/19/2002
The tower crane on 6/22/2022
Demo permits for 739 N Wells and 745 N Wells on 5/12/22
