Construction has wrapped up on a four-story commercial building at 1111 W. Addison Street—the former site of the infamous and also beloved Taco Bell across from Wrigley Field. The 59,000-square-foot building's ground floor is home to a new Taco Bell and a Chase Bank while levels two through four house a climbing gym dubbed Movement Wrigleyville.
The fitness facility includes three-story climbing walls wrapped around a central atrium, a yoga studio, locker rooms, work-out equipment, and supporting office space. Designed by Chicago-based architecture firm Hirsch MPG and developed by West Addison Development, the new structure features a contemporary facade of brick, glass, and metal screening. The project includes no on-site parking. Summit Design + Build served as general contractor and shared a video of the construction progress.
The area around Wrigley Field has seen an unprecedented amount of development in recent years including the massive mixed-use Addison & Clark apartment complex, the offices and plaza at Gallagher Way, and the nearby 173-room Hotel Zachary. The Cubs meanwhile plan a new 22,350-square-foot sportsbook addition to the ballpark, which replaces the now-demolished Captain Morgan Club.
