Editor’s Note: In yesterday’s story we incorrectly state there were four Fulton Market projects up for consideration. There are actually five.
With minimal public opposition, the Chicago Plan Commission unanimously approved site plans for five large-scale development projects in the city’s historic Fulton Market District. The applications now advance to the Council’s Zoning Committee, scheduled to meet Monday, ahead of the full City Council meeting on Wednesday.
- Taris Real Estate’s plan for a new 10-story, 22-unit apartment building at 900 W. Washington, a $30 million project located two blocks from McDondald’s new Chicago headquarters.
- Shapack Partner’s planned a 20-story office tower with ground floor retail for the corner of Lake and Halsted. The building would be located at the entrance to the landmark district, and across the street from the new 29-story Parker Chicago condo building.
- Bridgford Food’s planned 17-story, 314-unit residential building for 170 N. Green Street, on the same block as the new Nobu Hotel currently under construction.
- Sterling Bay’s planned 12-story office building for 210 N. Carpenter. Their planned development application includes a two-story commercial building (1039 W. Lake), so they could expand the project site area and transfer the unused development rights for that property to the new office building.
- Peerless Real Estate’s planned twin 9-story condos, each with 28 units. One will front 1115 W. Washington, the other 19-27 North May Street. It’s located a block away from McDonald’s new headquarters.
