Global real estate leaders and joint venture partners Thor Equities and QuadReal, together with leading real estate services firm, Cushman & Wakefield, and global design firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), introduced the city to 800 W Fulton on Tuesday, with an official groundbreaking ceremony. The project was dedicated by Chicago Alderman Walter Burnett, Jr., (27th) along with executive leadership from the groups involved in the project.

Located at the eastern entrance to the historic Fulton Market district at 800 W. Fulton Market, the soon-to-be 19-story, mixed-use building is designed to enrich its setting with a lively program of public and commercial spaces. The trophy property is expected to activate the burgeoning neighborhood with more than 450,000 square feet of office space, public amenities, retail and food and beverage outlets. Occupying a full city block, bounded by Green, Fulton Market, Wayman and Halsted Streets, the project is carefully proportioned to respect and relate to the rhythm, scale and streetscape of the vibrant Chicago West Loop neighborhood. Designed to meet the highest sustainability standards, the project is targeting both LEED Platinum and the WELL Building Standard certification. 800 W Fulton is slated to open in spring of 2021.
