FULTON MARKET — Separate plans by LG Development and Fulton St. Companies for apartment towers and an office building in Fulton Market received approval from the City Council Wednesday afternoon.

Prominent developer LG can move forward with plans for a 20-story apartment building with ground-floor retail at 1150 W. Lake Street and a 33-story building across the street on Lake, May and Randolph Streets.

In total, the two buildings will bring 665 apartment units, 290 parking spaces in the transit-oriented development.

LG Development previously envisioned an office building on the north side of Lake before pivoting to apartments after the moratorium on residential was lifted earlier this year.

The developer of the $300 million project will include 133 affordable units on-site, and pay $2.57 million into the Neighborhood Opportunity fund.
