McHugh Goes Vertical on Embry Condo Project in West Loop

Chicago-based McHugh Construction has started vertical construction on Embry, a new 16-story tower from Sulo Development that will bring 58 luxury condo residences to Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. Construction is on track for completion by fall 2023. 

Located at 21 N. May St., the 201-foot-tall building will offer duplexes; two-, three- and four-bedroom units; and two penthouses, ranging from 1,828 to 5,187 square feet. The two top-floor condos will offer expansive terraces with private outdoor swimming pools. 

“As Embry begins to rise in the West Loop, we are especially proud to be putting our mark on the neighborhood with a building that will stand out for its notable architecture,” said Jason Balamut, project manager for McHugh Construction. “This is our client’s first project using poured-in-place concrete instead of precast or steel, so our team’s technical expertise in concrete construction has allowed us to make it a smooth experience for ownership.”
