Foundation Work Progresses for 360 N Green Street in Fulton Market District
Since July’s update, foundation work has made extensive progress for Sterling Bay’s mixed-use development at 360 N Green Street in Fulton Market District. The planned 24-story tower will house 5,400 square feet of retail and Class A office space on the upper floors. At 399 feet in height, the project is set to replace a former vacant lot at the intersection of Green and Kinzie.
Residences come equipped with private balconies with great views of the city, high ceilings, and large, flexible floor plates that can easily be divided. Tenants will also have access to an extensive fourth amenity deck with spaces such as a full-service fitness center and an indoor/outdoor lounge. Just south of the building will also be a new urban park with various tables, benches, open grass space, decorative landscaping, and seating.
The tower’s design by Gensler will be composed of a rectangular volume over a series of V-shaped trusses supporting the overhanging portion of the building. Along the exterior will be floor-to-ceiling windows mixed with metal mullions and floor slips.
The closest transit options for this location include Divvy Bike stations and bus service for Route 8 along Halsted Street. Commuters will also find nearby service for Routes 56 and 65 within a five-minute walk. Those looking to board CTA trains will find service for the Green and Pink Lines via a seven-minute walk southwest to Morgan station, as well as Blue Line trains a four-minute walk north to Grand station.
This northeast corner of Fulton Market has been approaching Loop-levels of floor area ratios, with office mega blocks like 800 Fulton, 333 N Green Street, 167 N Green Street, and 400 N Aberdeen all coming to fruition in recent years. With just under half a million square feet of rentable floor space, 360 N Green will measure closely in scale to these aforementioned towers, furthering the neighborhood’s transformation. This decade, Fulton Market and the broader West Loop will see an increasingly eclectic urban backdrop, intertwining contemporary medium-height towers with masonry low-rise buildings from varying time periods.
Power Construction is serving as general contractor for the $288 million construction. Sterling Bay will also $4.4 million to the city’s neighborhood opportunity fund. With an estimated 473 construction jobs generated by the project, work is expected to complete by 2024.
