As of mid-April, 52 high-rise developments were under construction in the city of Chicago, which is up by 8 projects since January alone. Chicago’s latest construction boom is among the strongest in the country right now, and it’s also tops in the U.S. when it comes to residential high-rise construction. And considering that a number of high-profile developments like 150 N. Riverside, The Hudson, and Wolf Point West were just recently completed and aren’t even featured on this list, what’s currently happening right now in Chicago from a new construction standpoint is nothing short of remarkable.
Along with thousands of new apartment residences, luxury hotel rooms and plenty of commercial office space is being added to the downtown landscape specifically; and yes—even a number of condo buildings are also in the mix as well as the Chicago’s dynamic condo market continues to regain momentum in the midst of one of the craziest apartment markets we’ve ever seen.
In fact, projects like One Bennett Park and Vista Tower—two of Chicago’s most highly anticipated new residential developments—will feature both condos and apartments once finished, while other skyline-changing projects like One Grant Park and Essex on the Park will only house rentals.
With so many major new construction projects in the works, and no sign of a slowdown coming anytime soon, keeping current with what’s coming through the pipeline has become increasingly difficult, unless you’re someone like us who works in the business.
