Just two short weeks after crews were spotted doing exploratory digging for potential buried radioactive waste, the 47-story residential high-rise slated for the vacant lot at 465 N. Park is officially ready to rise. The Streeterville project received its first building permit yesterday and foundation equipment is already on site preparing to drill the tower’s supporting caissons. When completed, the 535-foot skyscraper will contain 444 luxury rental units, 11,650 square feet of retail/commercial space, and 181 decently-concealed parking spaces.
Designed by Chicago architects Pappageorge Haymes Partners, the tower’s curved shape optimizes available views and should offer a nice contrast to Streetville’s typically rectangular buildings. Residents in the upcoming tower will have access to an expansive fifth floor amenities deck plus a communal "sky terrace" located on the 37th floor. Monthly rent for an 800-square-foot unit expected to start around $2800.
