The redevelopment of Chicago’s 1970s era Atrium Village apartment complex is ready to kick things into high gear. Dubbed Old Town Park, the multi-phase project is preparing to begin work on the second of three high-rise towers planned near Wells and Division along the border of the Old Town and Near North neighborhoods.
As crews take down the festive light-up tower crane of the development’s 32-story phase one tower, British Columbia-based developer Onni Group has received the all-clear to start construction on a taller building to the immediate south.
Known by the address of 202 W. Hill Street, the glassy tower will rise 39 stories and is expected to feature 428 residential units. Its six-story podium will contain a parking garage as well as ground floor retail space. Like phase one, the latest design comes from Chicago’s Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture.
Onni is planning a third skyscraper—also 39 stories tall—to the immediate west of the phase two building. Additionally, the Old Town Park development will rehab one of the original nine-story Atrium Village structures at the northwest corner of the site. No word yet on the rumored plan to reconstruct the CTA Brown/Purple Line stop at Division Street.
