WEST LOOP — Developer Related Midwest will unveil amended plans that would bring an 18-story office tower next door to their planned massive skyscraper at a meeting next week in the West Loop.

The prominent developer wants to build a 250-foot-tall office tower at 724 W. Washington Blvd. next to their planned 58-story Equinox hotel/condo tower at 725 W. Randolph St. Developers will present plans at a community meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Revel Fulton Market, 1215 W. Fulton Market.

The developer also now wants to build more units in the Equinox hotel-condo. Although it was approved by City Council with 370 condos and 165 hotel rooms, Related Midwest now wants to build the 58-story, 615-foot-tall tower with 370 residential units and 240 hotel rooms.

If the new plan for the Equinox tower is approved, 30,000-square-foot club, restaurant, a fifth-floor amenity deck and 50 parking spaces, according to zoning documents.

Just one block south, the developer aims to build an 18-story office tower where a Bank of America now sits, according to a zoning application filed with the city in October.

In August, Related Midwest purchased the property along Washington Boulevard between Halsted and the Kennedy Expy for $20 million, according to Crain’s.

The developer is also behind a controversial 43-story high-rise planned for 906 W. Randolph St. Earlier this month, the apartment building received key approval from the city’s Plan Commission. If approved by City Council, it would become the city’s tallest building west of Halsted.

The 906 W. Randolph tower was initially proposed as a 51-story condo building before being downsized following community opposition, Crain’s reported.
