Here comes 1400 S Wabash!

Foundation permits have been issued for the construction of the South Loop’s newest tower, located at 1400 S. Wabash Avenue. Poised to take over the space between S. Wabash Avenue and the CTA L tracks at E. 14th Street.

The building’s scope, as it rises 30 stories and 305 feet, includes 299 rental apartments, 105 car parking spaces, 180 bicycle parking spaces, and retail/commercial space on the ground floor. The unit mix will consist of studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, with amenities located on the top floor with an outdoor deck.

The development will use the 14th Street easement to create a motor court with access to the parking levels and loading dock. The residential entry will face north towards the motor court with a small pocket park occupying space between it and the next property. Retail spaces will front S. Wabash Avenue.

With permits in hand and a vacant lot requiring no demolition, construction could begin very soon. According to permit filings, Lendlease will be the general contractor for the project. A September 2021 Block Club Chicago article reported that the tower could be completed as soon as 2023.

 Hello, and welcome to my page! My name is Alex Linardos.  Thank you so much for checking out my page! I currently run @MrSouthLoop on both Instagram and Facebook. I've decided to take "MrSouthLoop" to the next level. This is my first ever attempt at a Blog / Website so please bare with me! While I'm still going to post daily on both accounts, I'd like to use this site to expand my voice and connect with neighbors who may not be on social media. I created @MrSouthLoop on September 5th 2020 on Instagram. I wanted to bring a spotlight on our South Loop Community. Since starting @MrSouthLoop, I have really gotten to know the neighborhood and some of its residents. It's truly been an honor. I'm having a lot of fun with @MrSouthLoop and I thank you for the continued support! 

Back to the Movies.

 MrSouthLoop Revisits ShowPlace Icon Chicago Last night I revisited ShowPlace Icon Theatre in the South Loop. Now this wasn't my first visit since the pandemic, it was actually my second one. Despite living literally right behind the Theatre, I tend to see most of my movies at AMC locations throughout the city. I'm an avid moviegoer and AMC offers AMC A List which lets you see up to three movies a week. Anyways, let's get back to covering ShowPlace Icon. On Tuesdays, ShowPlace Icon offers bargain Tuesdays. Tickets purchased online or on the app are $6 and tickets purchased in person are $7. I asked a few friends if they wanted to return to the movies and take advantage of the discount. I purchased Six tickets from the app for our Tuesday evening showing of Promising Young Woman. We ended up having another friend want to join after I already purchased the ticket.
