A full building permit has been issued for the construction of 1400 S. Wabash. Poised to take over the space between S. Wabash Avenue and the CTA L tracks at E. 14th Street, the project is already under construction after foundation permits were issued in December 2021. CMK is leading the development of the property.
With a design by Pappageorge Haymes Partners, the building will rise 305 feet over 30 floors. The project will deliver 299 rental apartments with retail space on the ground floor. Residents will choose from a mix of studios, one-beds, two-beds, and three-bed configurations, and be provided with 105 car parking spaces and 180 bicycle parking spaces. Amenities will be located on the top floor with an outdoor deck.
The development will use the 14th Street easement to create a motor court with access to the parking levels and loading dock. The residential entry will face north towards the motor court with a small pocket park occupying space between it and the next property. Retail spaces will front S. Wabash Avenue.
With a full building permit in hand, general contractor Lendlease Construction can continue construction through completion. Work is planned to wrap up sometime in 2023.
