Walsh Construction begins to build AMLI 808 apartments in Chicago’s River North

CHICAGO, IL – Walsh Construction has broken ground on AMLI 808, a mixed-use development that will deliver 318 new apartment residences at 808 N. Wells Street in Chicago’s River North neighborhood.

Developed by AMLI Residential, the 17-story tower will feature apartments ranging from studio to two-bedrooms, including multiple amenity floors and nearly 4,700 square feet of ground floor commercial space.

The building will have several high-end and unique amenities, including two-level fitness center, a juice and coffee bar, a Zen lounge, a podcast room, an outdoor pool, outdoor grill and seating areas, pollinator garden and exterior viewing decks on the sixteenth and seventeenth floors, a bike repair shop, a pet spa and a library. Custom lighting and artwork are planned throughout.

Walsh Construction is the project's general contractor with support from Riteway Huggins Construction. Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is the project’s design architect, with NORR as the architect of record.

AMLI 808 is being built to achieve LEED Gold® certification, which is a hallmark of AMLI communities nationwide. AMLI is a leader in multifamily sustainability and was recently recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency as an ENERGY STAR® partner of the year for the second year in a row.

Walsh Construction, part of The Walsh Group, has constructed numerous multi-family buildings for AMLI Residential including AMLI River North, AMLI Lofts and AMLI 900, all located in Chicago. The Walsh Group is also nearing completion on the 45-story AMLI Fountain Place in Dallas.

AMLI 808 is expected to be complete in late spring 2021.

AMLI Residential focuses on the development, construction and management of environmentally responsible, luxury apartment communities throughout the country. Founded in 1980, AMLI is owned by PRIME Property Fund, a core commingled institutional fund. AMLI currently owns and manages 66 apartment communities including over 21,000 apartment homes and has approximately 5,700 additional apartment homes under development at 16 locations. AMLI owns six apartment communities in the Chicago area, which will contain over 2,500 apartments when AMLI 808 is completed. AMLI is a leader in multifamily sustainability.
