Construction Update
The Hudson Begins Flowing Along Chicago Avenue

The Hudson

The tower crane started sprouting in early November as foundation workers continued digging at The Hudson.

The Hudson (750 North Hudson Avenue) is scratching and clawing its way up from the dirt at the corner of Chicago Avenue and Hudson Avenue in the city’s River North neighborhood. Weeks after Case Foundation could be heard boring holes into the earth, crews have been streaming into the site to continue the work.

The Hudson, designed by Chicago firm Pappageorge Haymes, will deliver 240 apartments across its 25 stories. Shunning the increasing demand for studio and convertible units, Canadian developer Onni Group (it’s also handling the general contractor duties) has opted to include on one-, two-, and three-bedroom units for this tower.

240 parking spaces will be built on-site between the basement and 3rd floor (we did the math for you; that’s a one-to-one ratio.) It will also add a landscaped pocket park to the neighborhood along Kingsbury Street. Ten thousand square feet of ground-floor retail space is also part of the package.

You should expect the first residents to move into these new digs some time in 2017. We’ll keep an eye on narrowing down that opening date for you, while we keep you updated on how construction is coming along.

Here’s the summary, bullet-style:

  • Designed by Pappageorge Haymes
  • Onni Group is the developer
  • Onni Contracting is the general contractor
  • 25 stories
  • There will be 240 rental units
