River North is going to get another new residential building.

The Chicago Plan Commission greenlit 400 West Huron Street late last week.  Chicago Architecture Blog managing editor Mary Chmielewicz was there when the vote was taken, and if you follow our Twitter or Facebook feeds, then you got the alert instantly.

400 West Huron will be a 15-story building with 46 residences, designed by Berkelhamer Architects for developer Smithfield Properties.    Right now that location is the home of a couple of unremarkable one-story retail buildings.  Full details about and diagrams of the building follow:

  • Developer: Smithfield Properties
