With a demolition permit approved this past Wednesday, equipment can be seen at the future site of 160 N Morgan Street, a 29-story mixed-use high rise planned for West Loop’s Fulton Market District. Developed by Sterling Bay, this 350-foot-tall tower will be replacing a former one-story masonry building, which had previously served as a drive-through commercial venue.

The much taller replacing structure will yield retail on the first two floors and a total of 282 rental units, comprised of studios, convertibles, one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts. Under ARO requirements, 28 of the on-site units, or 10 percent of total, will be affordable. As noted in a recent Urbanize article, Sterling Bay will contribute $5.26 million to fund a sustainable mixed-income project known as Solar Lofts, located at 2548 S Federal Street in South Loop. Sterling Bay will also contribute $2 million to the neighborhood opportunity fund.
