ALLY At 1229 W Concord Gets Glassy In Lincoln Yards

Facade installation can be seen making substantial progress for the new life sciences center known as ALLY at 1229 W Concord, the first building in Sterling Bay’s 55-acre Lincoln Yards mega-development along the North Branch of Chicago River.

The 320,000-square-foot structure will be oriented towards biotechnology and bioscience companies. Nearly 90 percent of its floor area will be dedicated to Class A medical research labs, supplemented with additional conference and creative office space. Additional features include 15-foot ceiling spans, flexible floor layouts, and private balconies for tenants.

There will be a notable amenity component that will feature a double-height lobby with lounge seating, a fitness and wellness center, a tenant lounge, an event center with a stage and pre-function bar, along with a conference center and an attached lounge. Meanwhile outside the building, there will be a stepped terrace area that will attach to a 128-foot-long stretch of Riverwalk. This walkway along the bank will be extended manyfold as future phases of Lincoln Yards are built out.
