Full planning permission has been issued for a new 27-story tower at 160 N. Elizabeth Street in the West Loop. Located at the intersection of W. Randolph Street and N. Elizabeth Street, crews demolished a set of masonry buildings to clear the site after demonstration permits were approved in early November, and foundation work is in full swing. The project is led by Moceri + Roszak.

Designed by Thomas Roszak Architecture, the 27-story tower will rise 291 feet and accommodate 375 residential units with 9,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor. The L-shaped tower design consists of a four-story podium that fills the entire site, an L-shaped central tower portion, and an upper tower portion that spans the long section of the lower L-shape, extending east/west lengthwise.

The residential lobby will face N. Elizabeth Street with retail spaces around the corner to face W. Randolph Street. Parking for 144 cars will be accessible from the driveway, while bike storage for 160 bikes will be included in the podium.

The mix of units will consist of studios, convertibles, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, with these apartments ranging in size from 540 square feet to 1,450 square feet. The plan includes a 20% supply of affordable units on the site, totaling 75 units.

With all necessary permits in hand, general contractor Clark Construction may continue construction to completion. Construction is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2023.
