Marlowe Really Wants to be Your Neighbor

Some downtown Chicago projects seem to take forever.  Marlowe is not one of them.

The new Antunovich Associates-designed residential tower at 675 North Wells Street has gone from announcement to permits to crane-up in just four months, eliminating yet another surface parking lot from one of the most rapidly-transforming nooks of downtown Chicago.

River North Spy Joel sent us the photo below, showing Marlowe’s crane doing its thing at the corner of Wells and Huron.

When complete, LMC’s 15-story building will have 176 residences, 84 parking spaces, and 11,000 square feet of retail space.
