A demolition permit has been issued for the former Greyhound maintenance facility at 901 N. Halsted. Located at 901 N. Halsted, the facility will be replaced by Halsted Pointe, a new megadevelopment approved back in late summer 2021.
Designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, the development’s first phase will see the construction of a 46-story mixed-use tower that will include 460 residential units and 20,000 square feet of retail space. Rising 504 feet, the tower will meet the ground with a five-story podium which will hold the aforementioned retail space as well as 200 parking spaces and amenity space for the residents.
With a total of four phases, the overall development is expected to deliver up to 2,650 residential units, retail space, a hotel, and 1,470 parking spaces. After Phase 1, the subsequent towers will follow in a clockwise direction around the site. On the northeastern corner of the site, Phase 2 will include a 30-story and 45-story tower with 1,150 apartments, commercial space, and 500 parking spaces.
At the southeastern corner of the site, Phase 3 will include a 65-story mixed-use tower. Rising 691 feet, the tower will have 1,015 units with 18,00 square feet of retail and 600 parking spaces. This phase will also deliver over 100,000 square feet of outdoor green space with a new riverwalk and market plaza. The final phase will sit at the southwest corner of the site, delivering a 28-story hotel tower standing 313 feet tall. The building will have 2,150 square feet of retail space and 300 hotel keys.
Onni Group took control of the site in February and has been prepping the building and site for demolition. Work has begun on the site to remove underground tanks and coordination with local utilities has been in progress to clear the building before demolition. With the demolition permit issued, Brandenburg Industrial Service Company will lead the demolition. Once the site is cleared, Onni Group is targeting Q4 2023 to break ground on Phase 1 with a 24-month construction timeline to follow.
