New Renderings Released For 171 N. Wabash Development in the Loop

New renderings were just revealed for a planned mixed-use development that will soon be built at 171 N. Wabash in the Loop. According to Curbed, the building will feature 81 new apartments and 5,500 square feet of ground level retail space, and also provide a location that’s just steps from two CTA stations, which is important given the project won’t include any on-site parking.

The new 171 N. Wabash building was designed by Chicago-based Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture (HPA), and its warehouse-like exterior blends in perfectly with other neighboring mid-rise buildings that date back to the 1920s and ’30s.

Also featured in the new renderings is a pretty sweet rooftop swimming pool and sun deck, and also the noticeable addition of “vertical planted areas” that will cover some of the building’s facade with living greenery, which of course will only be prominent during the warmer months of the year.
