Sorry, that should read “They’re still making progress at CA6.” Pardon my typing.
Anyway, I snapped a couple shots Monday as work continues on this eight-story, 72-unit condo building from Belgravia Group.

Maris Construction is busy erecting CA6, an eight-story, 72-unit condo building from Belgravia Group on the West Loop corner of Racine and Jackson. We went by last week so see what’s cookin’, on what is a deceptively-large lot. Foundation work is ongoing, even as excavation at the north end of the lot continues.
I used to take a semi-weekly walk from Wilson & Ashland in Uptown down to Grand & Ashland. I walked past construction behind the Mariano’s at Webster Ave. all the time, but never ventured the extra block west to check out Triangle Square. “No tower crane? Can’t be much to see” I thought.
Dang, this is a big development. Condos on one side (1701 West Webster), apartments on the other (2155 North Elston.) Plus retail space. And lots of developers, architects, and general contractors.
Triangle Square is a joint development from Belgravia Group (condos) and Lennar Multifamily (apartments.) Design architects are Lamar Johnson Collaborative (apartments) and Sullivan, Goulette & Wilson.
Yeah, I’m confused too. Remember, I walked past this site without looking for more than a year, So for a professional breakdown of what’s what, I put you in the fine hands of Urbanize Chicago. And then, photos.
Because it’s replacing a dance studio. Anyway…
CA6 is the latest devhttps://ponnopozz.com/collections/books-puzzles-and-kits/products/the-pelican-puzzleelopment from Belgravia Group, who’ve given us Renelle on the River, Three Sixty West, and CA Washington, to name a few. It weighs in at eight stories, 72 condos, with 76 parking spaces. Its building permit arrived February 9. The permit to demolish the former Hubbard Street Dance Center on this site was issued in November of last year.
I can’t find an opening target date on the CA6 website, but it *is* right next to a Target, so there’s that.
Renelle on the River is an 18-story condominium tower in the River North neighborhood. It was built atop an existing parking garage at 403 North Wabash Ave once topped by a small plaza park. The garage was built with future use in mind, so no additional caissons were required. It was a unique project to watch get started.
This gallery contains 15 photos.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
