It’s been a long time coming and now after a nearly three-and-a-half year wait, the new 35-story Gold Coast apartment tower coming to Clark and Division is well on its way to finally becoming a reality. Although it’s safe to say many existing Gold Coast residents truly miss the convenience of the Jewel-Osco store that was located at the current construction site, the sleek new building, which will also include a new, larger Jewel-Osco, will no doubt improve a part of the neighborhood that desperately needed some modernization.

With an estimated cost of $200 million to develop, the building now being called The Sinclair was designed by renowned, Chicago-based architecture firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz, and judging from the renderings, will easily be the hottest rental building anywhere near the Clark and Division Red Line station once completed, which is basically right outside the front doors.

Originally designed to be a 50 story building, the final version of The Sinclair will stand 35 stories high—and noted above—and include 390 luxury apartments, along with the expanded 55,000 square foot grocery store that will act as a new downtown flagship store for the Jewel-Osco chain.

Like many new developments around the city, The Sinclair will also be a transit-oriented development due to its close proximity to the Red Line, providing just 0.5 parking space-to-tenant ratio with some additional parking outside for the new Jewel.

Along with easy access to transportation, The Sinclair will also be just steps from all the lively nightlife that stretches all along Division Street, and the wide range of restaurants, boutiques, and other luxury retailers that help shape the rest of the Gold Coast landscape will also be only minutes away from this dynamic new building.
