There’s no mistaking Gild Chicago

Now THIS is how you brand your building during construction.

Stellar signage atop Gild leaves no doubt as to what’s being built as you look up Rush Street to State.

I’m not quite sure what constitutes the second floor here, but that may very well be the underside of the 12th floor Power Construction is working on. That would darn near top out this 12-story apartment development.

A verticality update at Gild Chicago

What’s up, Eli!

Gold Coast’s lone tower crane continues sending Gild skyward at State and Division. The future 12-story, 89-unit apartment building from Newcastle Limited had reached the sixth level when I stopped by last weekend.

Gild is a design by CallisonRTKL. Power Construction is on the build.

Enjoying the photos? Metra and CTA rides, Zipcars, Divvy Bikes, camera lenses, and comfortable walking shoes are adding up. You can help offset expenses by making a greatly-appreciated donation to Building Up Chicago.

Gild Chicago levels up

Gild Chicago

No more hiding below the fenceline for Gild Chicago.

Crews were pouring concrete on the second floor Thursday for the 12-story tower. If you were stuck in traffic in the Gold Coast neighborhood for 45 seconds, this is the reason. Those see-ment mixers don’t have a whole lot of maneuvering room at State and Division, but kudos to the Power Construction guys for keeping cars and pedestrians moving thru with minimal delays. A well-oiled machine, they are.

Gild starts to peek above fence level

Gild Chicago, 1210 N. State Parkway

Progress is beginning to show above the fence line at Gild in the Gold Coast neighborhood. There might not be much to see yet, but thanks to the power of a tower crane, soon there’ll be 12 stories to peruse, and rent, if you’d like.

First Visit: Gild gets underway in the Gold Coast neighborhood

Gild Chicago March 2021

Gild, at State and Division in Gold Coast, is underway.

A bunch of short stuff was demolished to make room for a not-as-short apartment building at 1210 North State.

Gild is coming to Gold Coast. This 12-story, 89-unit apartment building from Newcastle Limited will also include nearly 18,000 square feet of retail space. It is a design by CallisonRTKL, and is being built by Power Construction.
