As if the trio of cores rising at the Clark and Grand Hotels site weren't enough, there's an even larger project underway right up the block on Clark and Hubbard. The 50-story AMLI River North tower, whose groundbreaking we reported on last fall, is gradually lumbering above street-level. It is the latest in series of projects in the area, beginning with 353 North Clark, that have rabidly consumed some of River North's most conspicuous surface parking lots. Some of the amenities at the 409-unit rental building, which will link up to the Greenway Self Park garage: a 22,700-square foot rooftop deck complete with a swimming pool; yoga and pilates studio; private balconies; and—of course—great city views. Completion is set for July 2013. Check back in the future, as we'll be keeping an eye on this one.
