Arkadia under construction

Greektown’s latest residential tower is rising along South Halsted Street.  Arkadia (765 West Adams Street) has poked above ground and construction crews are rapidly adding floors to what will eventually be a 33-story building.

The animation above  (photos by our own Bill Motchan) shows how far Arkadia has progressed in 14 months— from packed parking lot to budding building site.  When completed in 2015 the FitzGerald Associates skyscraper will add 351 homes to the neighborhood.
