The former restaurant space also served as a sales center for the new development slated to rise in its place

An upcoming River North condo project got somewhat ahead of itself earlier this month when it received its building permit with an existing two-story structure still standing in its way. Once home to Citizen Bar—a shuttered neighborhood watering hole perhaps best known for sporting an elevated deck years ahead of Chicago’s rooftop craze—the plucky masonry low-rise has finally been cleared to come down, notes local construction blog Building Up Chicago.

Once scraped clean, the parcel and its neighboring parking lot will give way to the 11-story new development known as Three Sixty West. A product of Renelle on the River developer Belgravia Group and penned by GREC Architects, the new building is expected to feature 38 for-sale residences, 52 deeded parking spaces, and no retail space.

Meanwhile, a 10-story condo development is in the works to the immediate north to replace a parking lot at 365 W. Huron. The same block is also home to a soon-to-open, seven-story boutique condo project at 351 W. Huron.
