Previously known simply by its address of 1035 W. Van Buren, the increasingly-visible residential tower rising just north of the Eisenhower Expressway has a new name—Landmark West Loop. Developed by Related Midwest, the 300-unit luxury apartment tower began foundation work last spring and is rapidly approaching its ultimate height of 30 stories.

The design of the steel and glass building comes from New York-based Morris Adjmi Achitects with Chicago firm GREC serving as architect of record. The duo of Adjmi and GREC are also collaborating on the West Loop’s upcoming 170-room Hoxton Hotel slated for the corner of Lake and Green.

Landmark sits atop a sizable 300-plus stall parking podium topped by an amenity deck and will feature new retail space fronting Van Buren Street. While the garage’s concrete ramps are currently exposed, the lower portion of the Landmark will soon be concealed behind slick, industrial-looking screens that have just started arriving on-site.

Scheduled to open in August, Landmark West Loop will be the first apartment tower to be delivered to the booming neighborhood this year, according to a release from Related Midwest. The project has also launched a new website LandmarkWestLoop.com and has started pre-leasing its mix of studio, convertible, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.
