Developer Baking Plans For Skyscraper to Rise on Restaurant Row

Plans for another West Town apartment tower are moving forward.

We first heard about a new building on the southwest corner of West Randolph Street and the Kennedy Expressway way back in January. Back then it was little more than a blurb in Crain’s Chicago Business, and an indication of about 90 residences.

Then in February, some paperwork was filed with the city of Chicago bumping that number up. Way up. To 31 stories and 190 residences.

Now the current proposal is for a 31-story building with 220 apartments over 260 parking spaces and 3,000 square feet of retail space. Its size and location fit well with the city’s long-term goal of placing a line of skyscrapers along the west side of the Expressway in order to block the sound and visual blight of I-90/94 from Greektown and the West Loop.

It was approved in December but Fifield is struggling getting the tower financed. They just put another significant site up for sale so money has become a problem for them. They had hoped to start this year.
