Mark Goodman Proposes Fulton Market’s Biggest Life Sciences Project to Date
Veteran Chicago developer Mark Goodman presented plans for a life sciences lab building along the western edge of the Fulton Market District, Crain’s Chicago Business reported. At 500,000 square feet, the 19-story lab and office building at 400 N. Elizabeth St. would be the neighborhood’s largest such project yet.
Crain’s reported that Goodman is expected to file a zoning application in the weeks ahead for the project, adding him to the short list of developers betting on Chicago as a burgeoning destination for early-stage life sciences companies.
“We’ve assembled a ‘dream team’ of experts, from environmental specialists to geotechnical and structural engineers to electrical and traffic consultants, to ensure we design and deliver a best-in-class facility that propels Chicago to the forefront as a top-tier life sciences hub,” Goodman told Crain’s.
The project would be two blocks west of a 425,000-square-foot life sciences project under development by Trammell Crow Company.
