Chicago Construction Report - May 2015

                                              Chinese Version

With summer drawing near, major construction projects are launching throughout the windy city. The large amount of projects can be partly contributed to a recent construction boom in Chicago, which has generated a lot of opportunities for commercial and residential developers.

Chief among some of Downtown Chicago’s latest additions are the Arkadia Tower & JeffJack Apartments. Both buildings boast impressive amenities as well as prime downtown locations. These new downtown apartments really cater to the increasing millennial market, who don’t want to commit to a mortgage anytime soon.

Looking forward, it is estimated that this surge in construction will lead to 3,000 new apartments downtown by years end. A couple projects that will soon be breaking ground include:

The Sinclair

The Sinclair will be a 35 story apartment building located at 1210 n. Clark. The impressive building will feature everything from studio apartments to 3 bedrooms, and will be aiming for LEED certification. To achieve LEED certification, The Sinclair will have a podium-top green roof and utilize recycled construction materials.  

East Village  Apartment Complex

Just having received building permits from the city, the construction  for this $13 million apartment and retail development will likely begin very soon. Stationed between 1822-50 W Chicago ave, this complex will feature 59 apartments, 15.000 sq ft of ground retail floor space, and 49 parking spots.


It is indeed a very exciting time for developers in Chicago. Being that we are in a city that is so informed by it’s world class architecture, we here at PahRoo cannot wait to see how this new wave of construction adds to the city’s impressive legacy.
