Paperwork has been filed for the latest residential tower proposed for Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, which is undergoing something of an apartment-building boomlet.
The nameless project at 1600 East 53rd Street is being developed by Mac Properties, with Solomon Cordwell Buenz as architect. It’s intended to be a 27-story tower with 250 apartments, and also includes the renovation or replacement of the co-owned retail building at 1644 East 53rd Street next door, and a small residential building facing Hyde Park Boulevard. The tower replaces a surface parking lot.
Though the paperwork was filed last month, the project does not yet appear on any city hall committee agendas.
