Community Meeting Summary for Development Proposal at 353 West Grand Avenue

Earlier this week, Alderman Reilly and the River North Residents Association (RNRA) co-hosted a public presentation for a proposed development at 353 West Grand Avenue.

Representatives of Onni Grand Limited Partnership (the “Applicant”) presented their plans to construct a 38-story residential tower and 6-story podium. The building would contain approximately 356 dwelling units, and provide 284 accessory parking spaces. Additionally, a pocket park located at the corner of Grand Avenue and Orleans Street would be built to encourage community gathering and provide a green space within the neighborhood. The site currently contains vacant buildings and an unused surface parking lot.

This is the beginning of a robust community process. Alderman Reilly uses your feedback to negotiate across the table from the Development Team.

This transparent development review process has yielded significant improvements to projects proposed in the 42nd Ward, and has resulted in substantial community benefits implemented at private expense.

Your feedback is crucial in Alderman Reilly’s negotiations with the development team. If you were unable to attend the community meeting, and would like an opportunity to share your thoughts on this project, Alderman Reilly wants to hear from you.  Contact him at
