New Chciago Skyscraper Gets Taller, Less Affordable

Last month we gave you the skinny on 410 East Grand, the residential tower that Golub is developing after a land swap with the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.

Since that time, the plans have changed.  In some ways, the changes are minor.  But there are also some significant changes.

  • Maximum height: 452 feet 486 feet
  • Roof height: 428 feet 457.5 feet
  • Floors: 42 45
  • Residences: 443 first tower + 87 second tower 490 total
  • Parking spaces: 297 270 residential + 26 office
  • Bicycle parking: 149 spaces 50 spaces
  • Green roof: 22,674  21,330 square feet (51.9% of roof)

Those are the highlights for numbers geeks.  What does it really mean?  It means that the main tower has gotten three stories, or 34 feet taller.

The secondary building, which was formerly to have 87 affordable housing units in it has been turned into an office building.  It remains to be seen if those affordable residences will be incorporated into the main apartment tower.  But even if they have, only 53 units made it over, meaning there will be at least 34 fewer affordable housing units in the project.
