Related Midwest Has A New Plan For Fulton Market

It was back to the drawing board for real estate developer Related Midwest after it debuted its plan for a huge condo tower at 170 North Peoria Street (900 West Randolph) in the greater Fulton Market area.  Now the River North concern has a new plan for the on the west side of the street between Lake and Randolph.

In the previous plan, Related teamed up with Tucker Development to put forward a a 51-story residential building.  it clocked in with a height of 570 feet and 51 floors.  The building was going to be 300 condominiums and a matching number of parking spaces in a garage hidden from street view.

At a community meeting in January, neighbors weren’t having it.  The neighborhood has been going through intense growing pains, and the notion of the Halsted Street skyscraper canyon moving westward was a non-starter with many people.

Now 27th Ward Alderman Walter Burnett Jr., has put out a reminder that those people, and anyone else curious about the project will have a chance to voice their opinions once again.  This time about an “updated” version of the project.

The meeting will be held next Tuesday, March 27th at 6pm.  The location is Haymarket, a couple of blocks east at 737 West Randolph Street.

What the “updated” plan entails is being kept under wraps for now.  And while a reduction in height to appease the natives is certainly possible, the skyscraper might not get too dramatic a haircut considering that Related has to find a way to make as much money as it can on the project.
