FULTON MARKET — Three months after getting city approval for an 18-story tower and 11-story building in Fulton Market, Sterling Bay is looking to expand its footprint with yet another building just blocks away.

The prominent West Loop developer wants to build a 14-story office building at 1200 W. Carroll Ave., according to paperwork filed with the city.

The proposal calls for a 227-foot-tall glass and aluminum building, with metal panels and a brick facade at the corner of Racine and Carroll avenues. The building will add 485,000 square feet of office space to the area and will also include retail, according to Julie Gouldie, a Sterling Bay spokeswoman.

The Gensler Architecture-designed building also includes 90 parking spaces, according to the zoning application submitted earlier this month.

If approved, the building would be the Sterling Bay’s 10th building in Fulton Market. The new property was purchased for $22 million last year, Crain’s reported.

The developer is currently working on three office towers north of the proposed 19-story Thor Equities tower: a 20-story building at 330 N. Green St.; a 19-story building at the old Coyne College parking lot, 333 N. Green St.; and a 21-story building at 360 N. Green St.

Sterling Bay previously built Google’s office and McDonald’s headquarters in the neighborhood.
