Sterling Bay breaks ground on newly-permitted 225 North Elizabeth

Early this week, Sterling Bay broke ground on their latest residential project, then began tearing away at the concrete slabs that stand in its way, while also celebrating the caisson permit issued by the city on Tuesday.

225 North Elizabeth, in their own words, will be:

a 28-story mixed-use tower in Fulton Market featuring 350 modern residential units and approximately 10,000 square feet of ground floor retail. The building, which is designed to complement the industrial character of the neighborhood, will set a new standard for urban living in what has been named “the fastest growing submarket in the country”. Featuring residential amenities including two green rooftop spaces to connect tenants to the outdoors, indoor/outdoor fitness and pet suite facilities, as well as shared indoor work-life spaces to meet the growing demand for work-from-home accommodations, 225 N Elizabeth is where form meets function in Fulton Market.

Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is the design architect. McHugh Construction is the general contractor, with McHugh Concrete doing the concrete work. That’s Lindahl Brothers out there having at the concrete.

Love seeing the height of the West Loop moving further west.

Disappearing this gigantic concrete slab was the first order of business at 225 North Elizabeth.
