Sterling Bay Tops Out Construction on Its First Fulton Market Residential Tower

Sterling Bay celebrated the structural completion of 160 N Morgan, a residential building in Fulton Market. A topping-out event was hosted on-site with Sterling Bay’s project leadership team, as well as partners at Walsh Construction, Bowa Construction, bKL Architecture, Ascentris and CIBC, marking the milestone with a traditional beam-signing ceremony.  

As Sterling Bay’s first residential development in Fulton Market, where the firm has developed more than $3 billion in office assets, 160 N Morgan will deliver 282 units designed to accommodate the area’s growing workforce population. 

“Like many cities across the country, Chicago is experiencing an increased demand for high-end residential, particularly when it comes to rental options,” said Andy Gloor, CEO of Sterling Bay. “160 N Morgan is the first of many hospitality-inspired residential buildings that Sterling Bay will deliver to meet the moment in Chicago, with more like it coming soon to both Fulton Market and Lincoln Yards.”
