As River North booms with construction activity, the new projects seem to just keep coming. The latest comes from developer Belgravia Group and would replace a pair of parking lots and the former site of Citizen Bar at 356-366 W. Erie. The popular rooftop watering hole shuttered this fall after developers threatened to flank the eatery with seven-story condo buildings. Designed by Chicago-based GREC Architects, the project would rise 11-stories and contain 38 condominium units.
According to prelimary plans, 52 deeded parking spaces will occupy a single sub-level and a portion of the building’s ground floor along with a lobby, management office, and mail room. The top level would feature a pair of three-bedroom penthouse units plus a communal fitness center, indoor lounge, and an outdoor terrace.
With a seven-floor condo development headed to nearby 351 W. Huron and a 24-story condo tower planned for 300 W. Huron, it seems that condos are slowly making their return to the Windy City—much at the expense of River North’s once plentiful surface lots. If all goes smoothly, delivery of Belgravia’s 360 W. Erie is anticipated to take place in the third quarter of 2019.
