Over this past weekend, exactly six months after receiving a permit for its foundation and first five floors, the 23-story apartment tower under construction at 221 W. Hubbard has been granted the go-ahead by the City of Chicago to rise to its full potential. Known by the official name of Centrum Hubbard, the 195-unit residential structure is part of a two-building combo replacing the surface parking lot at the southwest corner of Wells and Hubbard. The project comes from developer Centrum Partners and architect Hirsch Associates.
While 221 W. Hubbard is already several stories above River North, the space to its immediate east will eventually be home to a nine-story sibling building dubbed 412 N. Wells. Designed to tightly hug the inside of the elevated Brown and Purple Line CTA tracks that cut across the corner of the site, 412 N. Wells will contain new Class A office space and a rooftop amenity terrace for tenants.
