160 North Elizabeth Heads to Plan Commission

The people behind a plan to put up a 27-story skyscraper at Randolph and Elizabeth in West Town are ready to make things happen.  Moceri+Roszak’s 160 North Elizabeth is scheduled to get an airing before the Chicago Plan Commission this month.

160 was designed by Thomas Roszak Architecture, and features a large tower atop a podium.  The tower is divided into four vertical planes, giving the impression of individual structures with less mass.  The skyscraper is set back from Randolph and Elizabeth, presenting its bulk to the interior of the block.

Since we last reported on this building, the maximum number of residences has been reduced from 383 to 375.  Automobile parking has increased from 117 spaces to 144.  And retail space has been trimmed from 10,000 square feet to 9,000.  One detail we didn’t have last time is the inclusion of parking for 150 bicycles. The height remains unchanged at 292 feet, eight inches.

Location: 160 North Elizabeth Street, West Town
