The existing buildings at the site of Atrium Village, one of downtown Chicago’s largest redevelopment projects in a decade, will be demolished soon according to Chicago demolition permits.
The Chicago Architecture Blog reports that the completed project, designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture (HPA) will include 1,500 homes and some retail space in four large towers, ranging from 30 to 39 stories, and one smaller building of four stories.
Developers Onni Group, from Vancouver, BC, say the project should be completed by November, 2017
