Every week, it seems, brings several announcements for new downtown Chicago apartment developments.
Chicago Real Estate Daily reported earlier this week that a Seattle-based developer is buying a 1.8 acre site at 1001 W Chicago Ave with hopes of building 300 or more new apartments.
The River West site is adjacent to a CVS pharmacy and a few short minutes’ walk from a CTA Blue Line stop.
We shot these aerial views last September. In the second photo our chopper was almost directly above the 1001 site. It’s unlikely that a new tower would reach the height our helicopter was at, but you’ll still have an approximation of the views from the site.
