MCZ Development has shifted course again on its plans to build a 236-unit apartment tower in Fulton Market, restoring two floors to the top that it had planned to eliminate in a version last year.

MCZ will go before the Chicago Plan Commission on April 19, seeking approval for the 20-story tower at 166 North Aberdeen Street, according to Curbed. The building will rise on the old Fabbri Sausage plant. The development will include ground-floor retail space.

The developer unveiled plans for a 20-story project a year ago, then shaved off two floors the next month in a followup proposal, which only eliminated one apartment unit from the complex.

Now, it’s back to the first version, for the most part. The developer will seek 70 parking spaces, down from the original 84 requested, Curbed reported. The tower will be designed by Solomon Cordwell Buenz, and will be located two blocks from the Morgan CTA Green Line stop.

Also in Fulton Market, Tucker Development and Related Midwest recently tweaked their plans for a condo tower in the 900 block of West Randolph Street, lowering the proposed height to 495 feet from 570 feet, but maintaining the overall square footage.

ZOM Living and Verde Communities plan two 15-story towers with a total of 357 apartments, to include retail, on the 900 block of West Washington Boulevard. Taris Real Estate recently secured a $23 million loan to finish its pricey 10-story condo development, also in the 900 block of West Washington. [Curbed] — John O’Brien
