Cool CHICAGO | 215 N Michigan Avenue | 827 FT | 66 FLOORS

Renderings Reveal Possible New 66-Story Tower At 215 N Michigan Avenue In The Loop

Today YIMBY has a first look at renderings by Lamar Johnson Collaborative for 215 N Michigan Avenue, an 827-foot-tall, 66-story skyscraper proposed at the corner of E Lake Street and N Stetson Avenue in the New Eastside section of Chicago’s Loop. Situated on a narrow lot, the site is located next to the BTN and BTS office towers, across the street from Two Prudential Plaza and Two Illinois Center, as well as adjacent to the Aon Center.

The site is currently a hole in the Chicago framework of lifted streets, showing the layers of service infrastructure underneath street level. The site is zoned under Planned Development No. 70, with 215 N Michigan Owner LLC listed as the owner of the property.

The mixed-use project will include a data center on two lower levels, 262 parking spaces on the two levels below the data center, a 150-key hotel on levels 2-16 with hotel amenities on level 17. The remaining 46 floors will be occupied by 500 residential units, with two of those floors designated for residential amenities.

Renderings of the building depict a podium rising from the sub-grade hole to street level, a short bottom section, and a wider tower that rotates 90 degrees and cantilevers over the hotel component. The project utilizes a parametric facade that runs up the northern and southern face of the project, morphing from the hotel massing to the residential massing.
