A contributor to the SkyscraperPage forum noted yesterday that site prep for construction appears to have begun at 765 W Adams, the site of a proposed new 33-story, 350-unit apartment tower in the Greektown part of the West Loop.
FitzGerald Associates is the architect for the project, and the firm’s website has a new rendering and project summary.
The project also has a new name: Arkadia. Like many a development name, it may resonate in unintended ways. The developer doubtless wishes to call to mind an idyllic, peaceful, but it may remind some Greek emigrants of their rapidly depopulating home.
We dipped into our vast photo archive to bring you the following views of the site. The first shot was taken from the roof of Haberdasher Square, 728 W Jackson, the second and third from a helicopter.
You can see 100s more of YoChicago’s aerial photographs at Flickr, and follow the progress of all the new downtown apartment projects on our at-a-glance list.
