Progress Update: AMLI 808 at 808 North Wells

This was AMLI 808 back in July. It looks nothing like this now. Because progress.

Today in developments I’ve neglected, we feature AMLI 808, a new rental tower in the Near North neighborhood from AMLI Residential.

AMLI 808 is a 16-story tower at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Wells street bringing 318 apartments to town. NORR and Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture have shared the design duties, while The Big Green W is taking care of the build.

The official string of permits for this development started in February of last year, when a demolition permit was issued to remove the single-story structure on the site originally intended to be the sales center for a never-started residential tower here. Once that was out of the way, the foundation and tower-crane permits were issued in March 2020, with the full-build permit following in April.

Studio to two-bedroom apartments at AMLI 808 will be available for tenants to move in starting in July.
