Sterling Bay Unveils Revamped Design for Fulton Market Apartment Tower
Developer Sterling Bay unveiled at a virtual community meeting its latest plan for phase one of 1300 W. Carroll Ave., a 515-foot rental apartment tower in Fulton Market that company officials say they hope to secure city approval for in the coming months, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Sterling Bay updated its original design from late 2021 after Department of Planning and Development officials and local residents called for more green space. The wide podium initially proposed would have stretched across much of the block, and was replaced by one with a smaller footprint, opening enough room for a pocket park and a public plaza.
As builders transform the former industrial area into a sleek residential neighborhood and high-tech office center, bigger parks and other open spaces are likely to become more common in new developments, Sterling Bay managing director Fred Krol told the Tribune.
