A slightly slimmer version of Union West has been revealed, which would now bring 358 new apartment residences to a West Loop location that’s bounded by Washington, Sangamon, Morgan, and Madison.
Dubbed Union West, the ambitious new project was first introduced last October and included 405 units throughout its two 17-story towers, which have also both been reduced to 15 stories in the revised proposal. An additional 8-story building along Madison Street was also part of the original plan, however, that building has also been reduced down to just one story should the development eventually move forward.
ZOM Mid-Atlantic and Verde Communities are the developers behind the new Union West project, and each of the three buildings are being designed by Chicago-based bKL Architecture. As of now, the three buildings combined would house 123 studio apartments, 26 convertibles, 219 one-bedroom apartments, 59 two-bedroom apartments, and just 15 three-bedroom apartments. Roughly 9,400 square feet of retail space would also be included, should the proposal eventually be developed.
