GOOSE ISLAND — The southern tip of Goose Island is set to receive a dramatic makeover.
The City Council approved a zoning change Tuesday for Onni Group’s five-tower Halsted Pointe development at 901 N. Halsted St. along the Chicago River.
The site is currently home to a Greyhound maintenance facility, which Onni purchased in 2019, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The project will bring 2,650 new residential units, 300 hotel rooms, commercial and retail space and 1,400 parking spaces to the site. It will also include new landscaping, trees and a riverwalk.
The complex will include 530 units of affordable housing, in line with city requirements.
The project is expected to be completed in multiple phases over the next 10 years, bringing the first new homes to Goose Island in decades.
