Lakeshore East's eighth residential high-rise tower is on schedule for a February opening.
Coast is a luxury rental property under construction at 345 E. Wacker Drive in Chicago, on the northwest corner of the $4 billion, 28-acre master-planned development.
Forty-one of the 46 floors have been poured, according to David Carlins, president of Magellan Development Group, developer of Lakeshore East.
"We anticipate topping off the building by mid-August and completing window installation by mid-September," he said. "We've had an unusually mild winter that has allowed us to move ahead with our goal of initial occupancy in February 2013."
Robin Loewenberg Tebbe, president of Magellan affiliate NNP Residential, the leasing and management agent for Coast, said prospective renters have shown strong interest in the new building."We have an active group of Facebook and Twitter followers as well as a priority waiting list of interested prospects," said Loewenberg Tebbe.
