Three Sixty West is making big progress in River North

Three Sixty West June 2018

Progress continues upward at Three Sixty West, the new condo development from Belgravia.

The only problem I can find with this building is that it’s right up against another structure to the east, so you can’t walk a 360 around it.

Growth galore in River North, where Three Sixty West, the 11-story condo tower from Belgravia Realty Group, has climbed to the seventh floor.

In the GREC Architects-designed building where there will soon be 38 brand-spankin-new condominiums, Maris Construction is more than halfway up in progress at 360 West Erie Street. What that could mean is we might see glass installation beginning soon.

Renelle on the River drops its tower crane

Is a tower crane still a tower crane if only the cab remains on the tower? I think not.

It was only November when Renelle on the River made news by erecting Chicago’s 60th tower crane of 2017. It took McHugh Construction and that tower crane just six months to erect the 18-story bKL Architecture design that will soon contain 50 of the city’s newest, nicest condominiums. last week, it came down.

Don’t worry though, there’s still a lot of work to be done here. Only one level of curtain wall has been installed so far, so we’ll have that to watch before all that’s left to do is interior work on those 50 condos.

Now topped out, glass is in session at Renelle on the River

Yep, we just shared two tweets with you. That’s because Renelle on the River celebrated two important milestones: The first pieces of glass, and the last piece of steel.

As you can see in the video shared by bKL Architecture principal Thomas Kerwin, the first level of cladding installation is underway on the bKL-designed tower. And McHugh Construction was kind enough to share with the world that Renelle’s steel has topped out. That means the next milestone will be the sad one, when the tower crane comes down. And then all that’s left for Renelle on the River to accomplish is to open those incredible condominiums to residents, and that’s expected to happen early in 2019.

 

 

Three Sixty West rises above the River North street

Maris Construction is using this tower crane to build Three Sixty West in River North.

Maris Construction has one, and only one, tower crane in the skies over Chicago. And they’re making it count.

Three Sixty West, the 11-story condominium tower at 360 West Erie Street in River North from Belgravia Realty Group, has risen a floor above street level. The 38-unit, GREC Architects-designed development got its initial building permit back in November, and a tower crane permit this past January.

Those condos should be ready for move-ins early next year.

Renelle on the River is topped out and ready for glass

Renelle on the River went up in a hurry. Now, the concrete is topped out, and without any glazing yet, it looks kinda skeleton-like. But that will change soon, as McHugh Construction focuses on getting the outer skin installed and interior work begins. (Then again, maybe that’s what they’re calling an “open floor plan” these days. No windows, no cladding, just you and the elements and your living room.)  The bKl Architecture design brings 50 new condos to the River North neighborhood across 18 stories.

Three Sixty West gets in on the tower crane fun

It is the absolute newest tower crane to hit the Chicago skyline, so it’s no wonder developer Belgravia Group tweeted about it last week.

Belgravia is building Three Sixty West at 360 West Erie Street in River North. Formerly the site of the impressively-decked Citizen Bar, and one of those ever-popular surface parking lots, the site will soon be home to the GREC Architects-designed 11-story, 38-unit condominium tower. Condo delivery is expected in early 2019.

Three Sixty West marks the official entry onto our Chicago Tower Crane Survey for Maris Construction. We’ve documented Maris Construction’s work on CA Washington in the West Loop, but that gig didn’t require a Big Rig. This one does, so welcome, Maris!

The Three Sixty West website has a section dedicated to Tower Crane Arrival Day. If that’s not enough to make you want to live here, you’re not living at all.
