Plans for a brand new 19-story condominium are under way in Chicago’s South Shore. Breaking a streak decades in the making, the residential building will be the first new high-rise along the South Shore’s lakefront in 30 years.
Still largely untouched by the residential development boom that has hit Chicagoin recent years, the city’s SouthShorewill be the site of JFJ Development Company’s new high-rise, the first since the 28-story Quadrangle House was completed in 1968.
Situated on the corner of East 68th Street and South Shore Drive, the 128-unit condominium building will have an attached section of three-story, three-bedroom townhomes. The new structure will replace three separate two-story buildings that are being razed for the $60 million project.
