A long-discussed—and, for some people, likely forgotten—high-rise apartment project in Chicago’s Fulton River District is finally ready to break ground. Vancouver-based developer Onni Group has received the official go-ahead to begin foundation work on its new building at 354 N. Union Avenue.

Plans to redevelop the vacant parcel bordered by Halsted Street, a set of Metra tracks, and the K2 apartment complex go back at least to 2015, when Crain’s reported that a California developer was pursuing a 38-story tower at the site. That plan was approved in 2016 and later revised in 2018. Based on a new construction permit issued by the city and shared by Chicago Cityscape, the current version of the project will rise 32 stories and contain 373 rental units and 143 parking spaces.
