Proposal withdrawn for high-rise rental building on State Street
Loop North News

13-Sep-19 – There are no longer plans to build a 39-story apartment building at 1130 North State Street.

2nd Ward Alderman Brian Hopkins says he is opposed to the project. Chicago developer Newcastle Limited has reportedly withdrawn its proposal.

“After listening to the community regarding the proposal,” said Hopkins (left), “I have determined that this proposal does not fit the character of the neighborhood.”

He says residents, after listening to Newcastle describe the project on April 10, were concerned the 368-unit rental building would make the neighborhood more congested. The 425-foot height of the building, said Hopkins, “was not the right fit for the area.”

The building, which would have included a restaurant and other retail space, would have replaced one of the last remaining Barnes & Noble bookstores in Chicago.
