A view over Streeterville’s busiest new apartment block

by Joe Zekas on 8/22/14

You can see a drilling rig and caissons on the far end of the large site in the foreground in the above picture. Construction is apparently underway on 545 N McClurg Ct, a 44-story, 490-unit apartment tower, office space and ground-level retail.

Construction has also begun on the conversion of the River East Art Center building, 445 E Illinois, into 285 loft apartments.

At the east end of the park Related Midwest is proposing a new residential tower, and a site directly across from that tower has the potential for more than 340,000 square feet of residential or office development. That tower would be immediately west of Related’s recently-completed 500 Lake Shore Drive apartments.

You can see all of the new downtown apartment projects that are proposed or underway on our at-a-glance list.
