New 'No. 9 Walton' Condo Tower Proposed for the Gold Coast

New, 23 comments

While the latest building boom in the Windy City is bringing thousands of new apartment units to the greater downtown area, new condominium construction seems to be coming at a slow trickle. However, a new condo project is targeting that demand for new units in the high end market of the Gold Coast neighborhood. The Chicago Architecture Blog has uncovered details about a new tower proposal for the southwest corner of Walton and State, currently an empty lot roughly four blocks away from the 4 East Elm project going up in the Gold Coast. According to the post, the proposed tower by JDL Development would feature just 67 residences spread over 34 stories, suggesting a seriously upscale development with massive condos. The proposed tower won't go over well with tenants at Walton on the Park, who'd see their view compromised by a new neighbor to the north. It's probably a little early to worry, though, since details and permits are still forthcoming. We've reached out to JDL to learn more information about this project, so stay tuned.
