Two developers are seeking to approval for new towers that would be among the tallest in the city. JDL Development is looking to spend $700 million to develop two luxury residential towers west of the Loop, including one that would become the city’s sixth-tallest skyscraper. Meanwhile, Related Midwest is planning to build the two tallest towers in the Fulton Market district — a 58-story residential and hotel tower and a 51-story residential tower — according to the Chicago Tribune. Zoning plans have been submitted for the projects. JDL Development is looking to build residential towers with 76 and 45 stories connected to a nine-story retail base. If built as proposed, the taller tower, One Chicago Square, would be 1,011 feet. [Chicago Tribune]
