Related Midwest Details Name, Design of Luxury Chicago Tower
The project is one of the city’s first 80/20 buildings under the Affordable Illinois legislation.
The Row Fulton Market, a 43-story, 300-unit luxury high-rise and Related Midwest’s latest Chicago development, is set to open in June in the heart of the city’s Fulton Market District.
Preleasing for the market-rate residences at 164 N. Peoria St. will begin in March. As one of Chicago’s first 80/20 buildings established under the Affordable Illinois legislation, The Row will set aside 20 percent of the units, or 60 apartments, as affordable.
Related Midwest broke ground on the mixed-use property in November 2021, along with its contracting division, LR Contracting Co., and BOWA Construction. The Row will be the city’s first high-rise development co-led by a Black-owned contractor. BOWA, a certified Minority Business Enterprise, has previously partnered with Related Midwest on several projects in Chicago.
The Row is part of Related’s Reserve Collection, an exclusive set of properties across the Related Rentals portfolio that blends the finest design from celebrated architects and the world’s top interior designers with services and amenities. Morris Adjmi Architects designed The Row, previously known as 900 Randolph. It is Related’s fourth collaboration with Morris Adjmi nationwide and the second in Chicago. The companies recently worked together on the 300-unit Landmark West Loop at 1035 W. Van Buren St., which opened in 2017. Building interiors were created by March and White Design.
