Out With The Old, In With The New at 676 North LaSalle

Last week we gave you an update on the demolition happening at 676 North LaSalle Street.  That’s where a non-descript office building is being turned into apartments, getting a townhouse hat, and expanding laterally.  Well, the demolition phase must be nearing completion because the City of Chicago has issued construction permits for a foundation for the expansion portion of the project.

By way of recap: this is a Cedar Street project, designed by Booth Hansen.  When finished, the expansion will have the above-mentioned 149 apartments, and the original building will be capped with six townhouses.  The basement parking is for 20 cars and 68 bicycles.
