Streeterville Apartment Tower Breaks Ground in “Symbol of Chicago’s Recovery”

City officials joined developers Wednesday at the groundbreaking for The Saint Grand, Streeterville’s newest mixed-use development. The project is a joint venture between Mavrek Development, GW Properties, Luxury Living, and Double Eagle Development. The 21-story property is being constructed at the corner of Grand Avenue and St Clair. Office tenant buildouts are expected later this year, with residential deliveries in early 2024. 

“What we’re celebrating today is a symbol of Chicago’s recovery,” said Chicago Deputy Mayor of Neighborhood and Economic Development Samir Mayekar. “This will be the first multifamily property to deliver in Streeterville since the pandemic. The future is bright to invest in Chicago and to invest in this neighborhood.” 

Added Mavrek managing partner Adam Friedberg, “Breaking ground is the next exciting step on a project we’re eager to bring to completion, not only for our joint team of developers, but for the area and its residents as well.”
