West Loop residents who are less-than-thrilled with how dense the neighborhood is becoming were recently presented with a revised plan to redevelop a site at 845 W. Madison. And while the original plan called for 627 units, the new version would still add 586 luxury rentals to the West Loop landscape, as well as 14 townhouse, 293 parking spaces, and about 10,000 square feet of retail space.
Developers are also saying the revised version also greatly reduces its visual impact at street level, most notably when viewed from Adams & Sangamon Park, which sits directly across the street.
In addition, the new design also includes a number of setbacks, which should help minimize shadows and still allow for the park to enjoy plenty of natural sunlight. If approved, the massive new project has an estimated cost of around $100 million.
