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 feet486 feet
- Roof height:
428 feet457.5 feet
443 first tower + 87 second tower490 total
- Parking spaces:
297270 residential + 26 office
- Bicycle parking:
149 spaces50 spaces
- Green roof:
22,67421,330 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.
