400 West Huron Street, and its next-door neighbor at 410 West Huron, will soon live only in the memories of those who dined at Scoozi restaurant, and those who cruised by with their cameras to document their destruction. And Heneghan Wrecking Company is making short work of it.
Permitted for demolition by the City of Chicago August 27th, the two lots are being cleared to make way for a new 15-story residential building. Which, for the record, happened to be permitted for foundation construction the very next day (after receiving tower-crane blessings on the 25th).
The new 400 West Huron is a design by Berkelhamer Architects. Topping the ground-floor retail space, developer Smithfield Properties plans to deliver 26 luxury condominiums, with all the high-end amenities you’d expect from today’s new condo construction. The two- to four-bedroom and penthouse residences will vary from 2,100 square feet to 4,900, plus have balconies or terraces with each unit. Buyers will also have the use of a two- or three-car private garage with their purchase. 61 parking spaces will be included in the development overall. Expect prices to range from a million and a quarter, to four million dollars.
