Construction checkup: Alta at K Station

Alta and Cirrus at K Station

Fulton River District‘s newest rental high-rise development, K Station’s Alta at K Station, 555 W Kinzie St, looks to be at a turning point in construction. The project’s western tower, Cirrus (at right), has topped out with all of its 37 stories completed and windows installed almost all the way up. Its counterpart to the east, which shares the project’s name, 365 N Jefferson St, has nearly most of its 41 stories laid and should top out soon. Both Pappageorge / Haymes-designed towers are estimated to be finished in February.

Rental information for these two works-in-progress remains undisclosed. However, Alta’s Web site calls the towers “eco-friendly” and allows interested tenants to sign up for a “VIP Registration,” or, as it’s more commonly known, a mailing list.

The Echelon at K Station, Alta’s sister development at 353 N Desplaines St, was completed in 2008 has only a handful of remaining units for lease.
