If you notice The Hudson with a little extra swagger in its step this week, there’s good reason. This proclamation from the City of Chicago arrived Friday:
WORK_DESCRIPTIONNew construction 25 story mixed use high rise consisting of retail at the first floor, parking at basement through the 3rd floor and dwelling units at floors 3 through 25 with amenity spaces at floors 3 and 4.750 NORTH HUDSON STREET
And with those words, the contractors and developers at the two-hat wearing Onni Group may continue onward and upward at 750 North Hudson Avenue. The project broke ground in August after receiving a foundation permit in July.
One feature of The Hudson will be a pocket park on the west end of the development, along Kingsbury Street. But as far as green space is concerned, have a gander at all that green rebar on site. Though it’s a safe assumption that won’t be visible for long.
Pappageorge Haymes Partners has designed a 25-story tower in River North that will deliver 240 new apartments to the neighborhood. Eschewing the usual studio and convertible units, and turning a solid thumbs down to micro-units, The Hudson will only provide actual bedrooms to its future tenants, in the form of one-, two-, and three-bed abodes.
240 parking spaces go along with those 240 apartments. If you’ll recall from our update back in December, that’s a one-to-one ratio. the 375,000-square-foot project will include 10,000 square feet of retail space along Chicago Avenue, stretching the length of Hudson to Kingsbury. Renters will also enjoy two floors of amenity deck space.
