The New Atrium Village’s First Tower Picks Up A Floor

The transformation of a quiet, some might say bucolic, corner of downtown Chicago into a bustling planned community is about to kick into high gear.

It’s been a little over a year since the foundation permit was issued for the first residential tower in the rebuilding of Atrium Village (1140 North Wells Street).  Now with the parking podium in hand, the City of Chicago has issued a permit for the tower portion of the building.

FULL BUILDING FOR PROPOSED 32-STORY RESIDENTIAL TOWER WITH 405 DWELLING UNITS, 74 COMMERCIAL SPACES AND 342 RESIDENTIAL PARKING SPACES

That’s a modest increase from what was written on the foundation permit back in July, which specified 31 floors and 400 residences.

This is the first of five phases where Vancouver’s Onni Group is turning the garden apartment community into a high-rise neighborhood.  The other phases involve another 31-story tower, a 35-story tower, a 39-story tower, and a four-story residential block.

 

Location: 1140 North Wells Street, Near North
