Developers Shapack Partners and Focus joined with city officials Thursday to break ground on the Fulton Market District’s latest project. With WeWork as its first announced tenant, the 17-story 167 N. Green St. is expected to open in late 2020.
“This building is a collection of unique spaces that form a pedestrian connection through the heart of the site, uniting Halsted and Green Street pedestrians around a mid-block office-lobby,” said Tim Anderson, CEO of Focus. “This new pathway represents fresh thinking around the centuries-old concept of a mews, and the space will be the first of its kind in Chicago – attracting world-class companies and brands alike.”
The developers, with Walton Street Capital as their financial partner, provided $5.8 million in a Neighborhood Opportunity Bonus payment to the city in order to exceed their locations base zoning by more than 250,000 square feet. Gensler is the architect on the project.
