Construction appears to finally be moving forward on 808 W. Van Buren—the latest mixed-use development to hit Chicago’s rapidly changing West Loop neighborhood.
Being developed by Loukas Development and designed by bKL Architecture, the 12-story project initially secured a construction permit for the building’s foundation back in April, but not much has been active at the site since.
According to reports from Curbed Chicago, 808 W. Van Buren will include 148 apartment residences, ground floor retail space, and parking for 65 vehicles once finished, although a completion date hasn’t quite been announced as of yet.
Previous to development, the building site at the corner of Halsted and Van Buren was once the home of Costa’s restaurant, which burned down back in 2010 and has sat vacant ever since.
As more details are released about the new apartments at 808 W. Van Buren, we’ll pass them along.
