The last skyscraper in the Kinzie Station development topped out today. Developers, bankers, architects, and others signed a ceremonial beam that was lifted into place at the top of the 34-story tower.
It was almost exactly one year ago today that Fifield broke ground on the building at 365 North Halsted Street. The first residents are expected to move in within six months.
Randy and Steven Fifield, of Fifield Companies, spoke to a group of dignitaries and journalists about the project. Mrs. Fifield spoke about the high-end finishes that she believes will set the tower apart from the stiff competition in Chicago’s downtown residential sector. Mr. Fifield spoke to the history of the project, which required bringing together five different banks to work out the financing.
The project is ahead of time and under budget.
