Due to the geographic size and amount of infill going on in River North, we are splitting up our roundup posts into four areas. Here is a map showing the areas we will be referencing for these posts.

Today, we will begin with the west quadrant, which encompasses Denargo Market and everything west of the train tracks up to 33rd Street. Currently, there are three projects under construction.

Denargo Market Phase 3. This project has topped out at eight stories with work beginning on the exterior weatherproofing. Like many multifamily projects this size, the primary structure is light gauge steel. When complete, this project will provide 337 apartment homes.

AMLI RiNo. This seven-story, 390-home project will be divided into two buildings connected by a bridge near the north end of the project. One elevator core has topped out, which gives you a good idea of how tall this project will be. Work is currently underway on the second floor for the north building and the third floor for the south building.

DriveTrain. The original DriveTrain project we announced is no longer active. Back in 2018, Carmel Partners bought the parcel and has begun to build a new rendition of DriveTrain. This project will now feature 403 homes contained in a six-story building. Below are a couple of new renderings courtesy of 4240 Architecture, the architect on record.

Construction is well underway for DriveTrain with the underground levels now complete. Here are some recent photos around the project site.

That’s a wrap for the west area of River North! Stay tuned for the other three over the next week.
