Historic Water Tower in Fulton Market Demolished


The Fulton Market District's skyline got an update over the weekend, when wrecking crews removed a historic water tower from atop the former Federal Savings Bank building. Sterling Bay, the property's developers, announced on Facebook that they would incorporate wood salvaged from the water tower into their designs for the building, which will become part of its new office campus Fulton West. Fulton West is just blocks from 1K Fulton, another Sterling Bay office development, soon to be home to Google's Midwest HQ. Crews from Heneghan Wrecking removed the water tower from the former bank building, located at the corner of Elizabeth and Fulton streets on Chicago's Near West Side. The building will not be demolished, DNAinfo reports, but be joined with the nearby 1330 W Fulton St, where Sterling Bay is developing 290k SF into one office campus. Fulton West is expected to feature 796 on-site parking spaces, private roof decks and balconies, and a 20k SF park, with completion by December 2016. [DNAinfo]
