This is a two-phase development in Chicago, part of the booming Fulton Market District.
The first phase, soon to be under construction, is a massive renovation of the existing buildings to accommodate retail and office uses. OKW has worked as the client’s advocate with the City’s Landmark Commission to realize a design that’s beautiful, marketable, and complies with the District’s strict guidelines.
The project’s second phase is a new 18-story tower for approximately 270 luxury apartment units. The building’s design is at once both contextual and modern. The alternating steel and brick spandrels relate to the neighboring industrial buildings. However, the ample expanses of glass as well as the open glass corners are a distinctly forward-thinking approach that will allow for the light-filled units that the luxury rental market demands.
