The West Loop’s development boom looks to keep on rolling with no less than four new Fulton Market office projects are slated to go before the Chicago Plan Commission for approval this month. Combined, they will deliver a staggering 2.5 million square feet of rentable space.
According to the Commission’s February draft agenda, the line-up will include three recently revealed commercial buildings from developer Sterling Bay near the former Coyne College campus at 330, 333, and 360 N. Green Street. The trio will be joined by the 290-foot-tall office high-rise at 801 W. Lake Street proposed by Shapack Partners and Focus Development.
Other West Loop projects up for approval include Sterling Bay’s metal-skinned movie theater project at 345 N. Morgan and Bridgeford Food’s previously approved apartment development located at 158 N. Green. The latter seeks to amend the boundaries of its Planned Development in order to transfer a parcel east of Green over to the aforementioned 801 W. Lake Street building.
The February meeting will also see the commissioners vote on a pair of North Side transit-oriented apartment projects. The first, a seven-story apartment building proposed for the corner of Chicago and Milwaukee avenues in River West, had appeared on an early agenda but was deferred. The second is a curvaceous eight-story development slated for 3300 N. Clark in Lakeview.
The two proposed rental buildings are joined by a lone condo project—a 10-story, 45-unit development—located at 365 W. Huron Street in River North.
The Plan Commission is expected to consider a couple of educational developments as well. They include a Lakefront Protection Ordinance application for a three-story athletic facility for Loyola University of Chicago and a zoning application supporting a new Robeson High School building in Englewood.
Scheduled for Thursday, February 15, the public meeting will commence at 10:00 a.m. in the second floor council chambers at Chicago’s City Hall at 121 N. LaSalle.
