1043 West Fulton rises, scores a permit

It’s no tower crane permit, but 1043 West Fulton landed a hoist permit Monday. It’s news, and we’ll take it.

There are now banners naming this as both 1043 W Fulton and 237 North Aberdeen on site. Which moniker will win?

First Visit: 1043 West Fulton begins going vertical in Fulton Market

One of Chicago’s newest tower cranes is at 237 North Aberdeen in the Fulton Market District. But you can call it 1043 Fulton if you’d like.

1043 West Fulton is a joint effort from Intercontinental Real Estate and Fulton Street Companies. The 12-story office building will deliver 124,000 square feet of office space, 6,400 square feet of retail space, and about three dozen below-grade parking spots to the busiest neighborhood in the city.

Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is the design architect; Power Construction is on the build. 1043 is expected to open in Spring 2022.

Photos are from two visits with five days. They’re kicking some butt on this one.
