The work called for in this week’s filing includes lifting columns and shear walls from the foundation to the Midtown project’s second level, listing a total cost of construction of about $5.9 million.

First presented in late 2019, Hanover’s plans consist of about 260,000 square feet of office space, 8,600 square feet of ground-floor retail, and several hundred apartment units. Though initial plans included 328 market-rate units, filings updated with the city last month show that Hanover intends to construct 421 units, with 47 studios, 199 one-bedrooms, 140 two-bedrooms, and 35 three-bedrooms.

Hanover Company didn’t immediately respond to request for comment on its plans.

The developer first initiated site work at the property in mid-December, filing for land development and demolition permits at the site, which has held a three-story office building. The demolition permit is listed as ready to issue as of Wednesday.

The project will rise below the westward path of the planned two-block extension of 15th Street to Williams Street. Hanover is coordinating utility installation and streetscape improvements for its project with Midtown Alliance and extension project consultant Jacobs.

Designed by Chicago-based architecture firm Solomon Cordwell Buenz, Hanover’s project will feature residential amenities including a dog wash and bike storage, according to drawings.

  1. I’m not sure I understand this story. Them filing permits doesn’t necessarily equate to them starting foundation work. It’s assumed that they will eventually start foundation work but this title seems a bit misleading.
