WEST LOOP — New York-based developers will present plans for yet another West Loop office building to neighbors at a meeting next week in West Loop.

Developers RCG Longview and CLK properties will unveil their plans for a nine-story retail and commercial office space at 1230 W. Washington Blvd. at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 26 at Revel Fulton Market, 1215 W. Fulton Market. The West Loop Community Organization and Ald. Walter Burnett Jr. (27th) will co-host the meeting.

Developers aim to convert the site into a 160,000 square foot, nine-story glass building. Designed by Hartshorne Plunkard Architects, the proposal looks to keep the site’s current three-story building, which houses a storage facility at the corner of North Willard Court and Washington Boulevard, and build the offices alongside and behind it.

If approved, the building will include ground floor retail, office space and 59 parking spaces, according to a zoning application filed last September.

RCG Longview and CLK properties are seeking to rezone the property from the C1-3 Neighborhood Commercial District to the DX-3 Downtown Mixed-Use District, then to a Business Planned Development.

In 2017, the developers bought the property for $13.5 million, according to Crain’s.

The developers own other office spaces including 327 N. Aberdeen St. and 1144 W. Fulton St., according to the Real Deal.
