New towers proposed for West Loop


LG Development and NORR Architects want to construct a pair combined office and apartment tower on both sides of Lake Street, according to reporting in Curbed Chicago.

According to the website, “the residential portion of the [Amylu Collection] project calls for a 22-story tower at 171 North Racine Avenue and a 20-story tower at the opposite corner of the block at 168 North May Street. Topping out at 238 and 217 feet, the glass, metal, and concrete buildings share a common base topped by a fifth-floor amenity deck with two pools.

“Combined, the high-rises will offer 484 studio, one-, and two-bedroom rental units with 20 percent affordable housing located on-site. The transit-oriented complex also provides ground-floor retail space topped by 220 parking spaces which are hidden behind smaller residential ‘liner’ units.”
