Paperwork in Place for New Hyde Park Residential Tower

Paperwork has been filed for the latest residential tower proposed for Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, which is undergoing something of an apartment-building boomlet.

The nameless project at 1600 East 53rd Street is being developed by Mac Properties, with Solomon Cordwell Buenz as architect.  It’s intended to be a 27-story tower with 250 apartments, and also includes the renovation or replacement of the co-owned retail building at 1644 East 53rd Street next door, and a small residential building facing Hyde Park Boulevard.  The tower replaces a surface parking lot.
