Marquette Companies is putting up the new apartment building at 158 North Ada Street. That’s just half a block from Randolph Street and a block from the park.

At ten stories, it will be the tallest building in the immediate area, with views in all directions since its neighbors are generally under two or three stories. The building will include 263 apartments above ground floor retail. And because the joint is a little far from the mass of mass transit, it’s going to sport about a hundred parking spaces.
