The West Loop Prepares to Welcome Another 200 Rental Units Along Van Buren Street
There’s so much development taking place in Chicago’s West Loop that it is sometimes hard to keep track of what’s going on. And with the lion’s share of construction happening around the northern portion in Fulton Market, it’s easy to overlook the new residential buildings popping up at the neighborhood’s southern edge, next to the Eisenhower Expressway.
At 1125 W. Van Buren Street, work recently began on a 24-story, 200-unit apartment tower from developer Tandem Partners. The proposal was last on our radar back in 2018 when it went before the Chicago Plan Commission for preliminary zoning approval.
The project—which also includes ground-floor retail space, amenities on the 2nd and 24th floors, and onsite parking for just seven cars—is the second of four apartment buildings looking to flood a roughly two-block stretch of Van Buren with as many as 650 new rental residences.
It will join the existing 300-unit Landmark West Loop high-rise that opened 2017. A 26-story, 351-unit rental tower is in the works for the parcel between those two towers, according to paperwork filed with the city by Related Midwest and the Pizzuti Companies. Meanwhile, Tandem also has approval for a 20-story, 201-unit apartment project at nearby 1050 W. Van Buren.
