Just days after developer Sterling Bay revealed a plan to construct no less than three high-rise office buildings near the intersection of Green and Wayman, a different developer has filed a zoning application for another office project at nearby 310 N. Sangamon. The 12-story proposal comes from veteran Chicago real estate firm Mark Goodman & Associates and is slated for a site currently occupied by the AmeriGas propane fueling facility.

According to Goodman’s paperwork, the development would contain 211,000 square feet of office space, roughly 4,400 square feet of ground floor retail, and off-street parking for 53 vehicles. The design from Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB) features brick-clad lower levels topped by a more modern-looking glass penthouse. Based on elevation drawings filed with the City of Chicago, the architecture is evocative of SCB’s “McDonald’s Vendor Village” currently under construction at 210 N. Carpenter.

In addition to the planned Sterling Bay towers, the AmeriGas development site is just steps from the Google-anchored 1K Fulton building, the neighborhood’s newly-opened Ace Hotel, and an 11-story office project planned for 375 N. Morgan. Mark Goodman’s plan to purchase the 34,330-square-foot industrial parcel was first reported by Crain’s in October. The project will require a zoning change to move forward.
