After several alterations, redesigns and public meetings, West Loop residents reluctantly approved the proposed Gateway development for Green & Madison last summer, which is set to bring 167 apartments and 95 parking spaces to the already booming area. Recently, YoChicago spotted a tower crane at the site, signaling that construction of the new development has started, and indeed, it most certainly has. Curbed photographer Harry Carmichael swung by yesterday to check out the site, and was surprised to see that caissons have already been installed and elevator pits are currently being formed. Designed by Antunovich Associates, the new development also includes the new Mariano's on Halsted. Keep your eyes peeled West Loopers, this thing is coming up fast.
