Chicago-based developers are proposing a 26-story residential tower in the Fulton Market/West Loop area.
Architect-developer Thomas Rozak and his partner Dan Mocderi have filed a zoning application for the 292-foot-tall structure with 383 residential units on land at 160 N. Elizabeth St. and Randolph St.
The site currently includes the Gateway Auto Service garage and a cluster of low-rise brick buildings.
The design features a three-story brick podium topped by a glassy tower with a setback on the 14th floor, based on elevation drawings attached to the application, Block Club Chicago reports.
The proposed zoning change would require Ald. Walter Burnett Jr.’s (27th) support. Block Club Chicago says it is unclear unclear when the project will be publicly presented to West Loop residents.
“With the economy going the way it’s going, we’re trying to help to keep the economy going in the city by opening the floodgates to Fulton Market residential development,” Burnett told Block Club in May. A number of other projects are proposed or under-way in the area.
“We support bringing residential developments to the Fulton Market District,” said West Loop Community Organization executive director Carla Agostinelli in October. “Responsible residential development is a key component to having a successful business corridor and filling vacancies.”
Nearby, construction is continuing on new buildings at 1400 and 1454 W. Randolph St., rising 26 and 11 stories respectively.
