A $2 million construction permit issued this week gives the 14-story, 263-unit apartment building planned for Chicago’s West Loop the green light. The modern, L-shaped building will sit on the corner of Ada and Lake streets.
The 180 North Ada Street site contains a small surface parking lot and a warehouse building that formerly housed Takis Royal Foods grocery. In 2014 Sterling Bay purchased the property, and it looks like Naperville-based Marquette Companies will develop the multifamily building designed by Brininstool and Lynch.
Work on the building is expected to take place after demolition, according to Neighbors of the West Loop. The neighborhood community group said the proposed plan calls for a 2nd floor swimming pool, a fitness area, resident lounge, outdoor grilling space and green roof. Nearly 2,500 square feet of ground floor space will be available to a retail or restaurant tenant.
In previous proposals the building was one story shorter and offered only 96 parking spaces. According the construction permit, the apartments will now have a parking garage with 148 spaces available.
