113 East Roosevelt is a 76-story, 792-unit apartment tower proposed for the site on Roosevelt Rd just west of The Grant condominiums in the South Loop.

Miami-based Crescent Heights will be the developer and Rafael Vinoly Architects is the architecture firm.

113 East Roosevelt will be the first building of three that Crescent Heights will build just south of Grant Park and will be one of the tallest buildings to be built in the South Loop.

There are also plans for a 648-unit building just west of 113 East Roosevelt and a 100-unit complex just south on Indiana Ave, which will either be apartments or condominiums.
