Back towards the beginning of last summer, developers announced plans to build a luxury 27-unit condo building right across the street from Groupon’s headquarters at 600 W. Chicago Avenue. Since then, there’s been hardly any movement whatsoever with the project, and it appears now that Chicago-based Domus Group is switching gears and developing a totally new rental building instead.

According to reports, the impressive new design is from architecture firm Brininstool + Lynch, and once completed, the building will stand 4 stories high, feature 49 apartment residences, and also include some retail space on the ground level as well. It’s also worth noting that the building will also include indoor garage parking that will house up to 38 vehicles.

With so many new apartment developments coming through the pipeline, and now even quite a few condo buildings (see No. 9 Walton, 808 Wells, and 403 N. Wabash just to name a few), the Aurélien is a fabulous new rental tower that has to some degree slipped through the cracks a bit. 

Being built at 833 N. Clark, Aurélien will be a 31-story, 373 unit apartment tower when finished, adding to the already incredible collection of new construction rentals to be added to the growing Gold Coast/River North inventory.

Earlier this month, however, new details and renderings were released about the relatively mysterious project that has somehow flown under the radar in what’s been an extraordinarily busy time for the apartment market in downtown Chicago.

Part of those details include a total unit count of 102 apartments, as well as the declaration of the building officially housing rental units despite some earlier chatter that the plan could call for condos. In addition, it’s also been

HoJo Tower, Chicago IL

The River North apartment market is about to get a little more crowded as construction for a 38-story high-rise rental tower continues to move forward, replacing the old 71-room mid-century Howard Johnson Motel.

Designed by bKL Architecture, the HoJo Tower will house 298 apartment units when finished, not to mention an abundance of retail and commercial space which should liven up this stretch or River North. In addition, a small public pocket park will also be situated on the west end of the building site—a feature that’s being designed by Kettelkamp & Kettelkamp out of Evanston.

Earlier today, the Chicago Architecture Blog posted photos of the completely demolished, now-empty site of the former HoJo Motel, which will soon be occupied by this
