Cassidy on Canal is topped out at 350 North Canal in River West. The tower crane is on the way done, as the glass exterior rises toward the top. It appears The Habitat Company’s 343-unit apartment tower is on pace for its scheduled Spring 2024 opening. Great location, too.
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.
1114 West Carroll, the 34-story, 368-unit apartment tower from Trammell Crow Company in Dallas is really showing out in the Fulton Market District. Don’t believe me? Check out the gallery of Power Construction progress, who appear to have reached the underside of Floor 11:
Another fantastic location is about to be your home, if you so choose. Sterling Bay announced last week in an Instagram post that The Dylan, their new Fulton Market apartment tower, is now showing units. And while I’m not going to fool anyone into thinking these are in my price range just to get a tour, the studio units I looked at on the website are nice sized. At least where I come from, 553 square feet is darn spacious. Plus, I love the West Loop and Fulton Market District. This’d be a great spot for me. Or for any of my dedicated followers who like to invite guests over. (Careful that hint don’t drop on your noggin.)
Here’s a quick look at what The Dylan looks like right this very minute. You can also click on my tags for The Dylan and 160 North Morgan to see how construction progressed.
732 West Randolph is an edition, and an addition. The eight-story building in the heart of Restaurant row connects on all six floors of the exiting building to its east. Wait….I guess it’s more of an extension than an addition, but I’ve said what I’ve said.
Never forget, this humble eight-story edifice brought a tower crane to the West Loop. Be grateful for that, Construx Nerds.
Hey, there’s a sweet video in that link above. And the gallery shows what the almost-ready-for-business office building looks like right this very moment.
This post has been corrected to show Q Investment Partners of Singapore as the developer.
633 South LaSalle has avoided a forced vacation to Spireville and is now underway in the Printers Row area of the South Loop. The tower crane is up, the core has gone 3-D, and any and all delays — pandemic-related or otherwise — are a thing of the past. Thrilled and relieved to see this one get going.
This will be an 18-story co-living development, consisting of 117 units and 381 beds. Why co-living in the South Loop? Students. Roosevelt University, Columbia College, DePaul, East-West University, etc. Lots of kids need lots of places to stay.
I went to the South Loop Friday to see a new tower crane, and found an even newer one in Lake View on the way home.
Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center is erecting an eight-story vertical expansion (if this was a house, it would called an addition) addressed as 900 West Nelson Street. This construction is best viewed from an outbound Brown Line train, which is where I was Friday when I snapped a couple iPhone shots of the crane going up.
1114 West Carroll, the 34-story, 368-unit apartment tower from developer Trammell Crow Company, is beginning to go 3-D from its excavation site in the Fulton Market District. On the site where once stood a Ryder truck-rental site, GC Power Construction has been digging out space for the below-grade 95 parking spaces for several weeks. But now, the core is rising.
Designed by ESG Architecture & Design, who also teamed with Trammell Crow on the Fulton Labs project on the north side of the Metra tracks, 1114 West Carroll will add retail space at ground level. Below-grade parking + ground-level retail = no parking podium, if my math is correct.
To date, 1114 has received the following building permits: foundation issued 1/9/23 tower crane issued 1/23/23 full build issued 3/7/23 hoist issued 4/25/23
I got over here a couple times while the digging was still being dug — you’ll see photos from those visits in the gallery, including shots from Craning Day in March — but verticality is always a nice milestone. Those pics were taken May 7.
