November’s email newsletter from FitzGerald Associates Architects brought word that the newly-named Circa 922 has broken ground.
Construction has begun at Circa 922, located at 922 West Washington Street in Chicago’s West Loop. The project is the expansion of an existing building— 123 Sangamon —onto an adjacent parcel. The new 157,000 square foot addition will stand 11 stories and will add 104 apartments in studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans to the building’s 45 loft apartments. Focus Development, Inc. is the developer, and Focus Construction, Inc. is the general contractor.
Residents will have access to 7,000 square feet of amenity spaces including a business center, theater room, lounge, breakfast café, and fitness room on the ground floor. On the fourth floor, another amenity suite includes a kitchenette leading out to the building’s outdoor pool, lounge, and grill areas. Atop the building’s 10th floor, accessible from the penthouse level, another landscaped patio allows visitors to take in panoramic views of the city. The building’s base will include parking for 130 vehicles, as well as office spaces for building management functions.
Other apartment projects currently under construction in the West Loop include Catalyst (223 units), Arkadia (350 units), and The Madison (216 units).
