New 'No. 9 Walton' Condo Tower Proposed for the Gold Coast

While the latest building boom in the Windy City is bringing thousands of new apartment units to the greater downtown area, new condominium construction seems to be coming at a slow trickle. However, a new condo project is targeting that demand for new units in the high end market of the Gold Coast neighborhood. The Chicago Architecture Blog has uncovered details about a new tower proposal for the southwest corner of Walton and State, currently an empty lot roughly four blocks away from the 4 East Elm project going up in the Gold Coast. According to the post, the proposed tower by JDL Development would feature just 67 residences spread over 34 stories, suggesting a seriously upscale development with massive condos. The proposed tower won't go over well with tenants at Walton on the Park, who'd see their view compromised by a new neighbor to the north. It's probably a little early to worry, though, since details and permits are still forthcoming.

Work begins soon: http://chicago.curbed.com/archives/2015/08/10/no-9-walton-construction.php

One of Chicago's priciest condo developments is ready to begin construction in the Gold Coast. JDL Development's ultra-lux No. 9 Walton tower has just been issued a building permit by the city to begin work on the building's foundation and first floor. Designed by Chicago's Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture (HPA), the stone-clad tower will stand at 35 stories and contain just 66 condo units.

Prep-1/2016

At 9 West Walton Street is another luxury condo project which just finished foundation work. Known as No. 9 Walton, the project by JDL Development is an ultra-luxury building designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture (HPA) featuring only 66 units in a 35-story tower. Because the tower features no parking podium, foundation work took longer than usual as a secant wall was installed around the perimeter of the site, serving as earth retention while the site's interior is excavated and will eventually serve as part of the building's overall foundation.
