Developer Wants to Replace Loop Parking Garage With 33-Story Rental Tower



Quote:
A developer has come forward with a new plan to transform a downtown parking lot into a new apartment tower. Architect and developer Thomas Roszak has told Crain's that he and a partner are looking to plant a 33-story tower at 215 W. Lake Street in the northwest corner of the Loop that will contain 265 rental units. While the downtown apartment landscape is becoming more and more competitive, the tower project wouldn't be Roszak's first rodeo. The architect/developer was one of the partners behind the JeffJack tower block in the West Loop that was completed earlier this year.

Those colours make it look cheap IMO. It is also tiny compared to neighbouring towers.

Doomed

I've been checking on this building since its late August appearance on the city's delay list for demolition but it's now imminent for this post-Fire building. Plans are to replace it and the parking garage to the west with a 33-story apartment tower. The building is orange-rated for historic significance in the Historic Resources Survey, but the delay review period elapsed and a permit was issued to demolish.

It is one of about 15 extant Loop buildings erected immediately following the Great Chicago Fire. But a third of those, including 209 West Lake, have not been protected by city landmark ordinance. It's estimated this building dates to 1872-1874, supported by the presence of tiered window hoods detailing an Italianate facade.

Rental Tower Quickly Climbing in Chicago


Quote:
Thomas Roszak Architecture's new highrise project at 215 West Lake Street in Chicago is rapidly climbing above its initial parking levels. The 33-storey development replaces a parking garage, one of many single-use structures that are steadily vanishing from the downtown core in favour of mixed-use building typologies.

Cladding Installation Underway at 215 West Lake

Quote:
In the two months since our last update, progress at the Thomas Roszak Architecture-designed 33-storey apartment tower has been swift, with glass cladding now chasing the structure's vertical ascent into the sky.
