Related Midwest breaks ground on 900 Randolph in Chicago

Related Midwest breaks ground on 900 Randolph in Chicago

The partnership between Related Midwest, LR Contracting Company and BOWA Construction will deliver one of Chicago’s first 80/20 buildings and the City’s first high-rise with a minority-led general contractor.         

Related Midwest, along with LR Contracting Company and BOWA Construction, has broken ground on 900 Randolph, a new mixed-use development in Fulton Market. The project will make history as the 43-story building will become the city’s first high-rise project with an African-American Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) co-leading construction.

Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, 900 Randolph in Fulton Market features 300 apartments from studios to 3-bedrooms, complemented by a full suite of amenities and services. This is Related’s third collaboration with Morris Adjmi Architects nationwide and second in Chicago; the firm previously partnered with Related for the 300-unit Landmark West Loop tower at 1035 West Van Buren, opened in 2015. While adding architectural significance to Chicago’s skyline, the development will also be a model for the future as it is the first major building constructed under new Affordable Illinois legislation, with 80 percent market-rate and 20 percent affordable units, totaling 60 affordable residences. 900 Randolph will be the fourth project in Chicago under the Related Rentals brand, projects synonymous with luxury high-rise living and thoughtful services and benefits.
