Greystar Tops Out on First Chicago Highrise

Greystar has topped off construction of its first Chicagoland highrise development project, One Six Six, at 166 N. Aberdeen St. in the Fulton Market District, at its maximum height of 21 stories. 

“This is a great milestone for Greystar and our entire project team,” said Christine Kolb, Greystar Midwest senior director of development. “We are thrilled to join the dynamic fabric of the Fulton Market neighborhood, and contribute much needed housing, including on-site affordable units, to the community and city of Chicago. One Six Six will be a fantastic complement to the area’s substantial office and hotel development and will provide residents walkability to some of the best live/work/play amenities in the city.”   

Greystar is working with Lendlease as construction manager and SCB Architects to bring the project to fruition. Construction on One Six Six began in October 2021. Anticipated delivery of first units is slated for early 2023.
