As the dust clears, the nostalgic Clark and Barlow hardware store on the Southwest corner of Grand & Orleans will become history and brand new luxury apartments in Chicago’s River North will take its spot.

Plans are already moving forward for the 452-foot upscale luxury apartments in downtown Chicago which is set to grace 353 W. Grand Ave. The “Onni Grand”, as it is proposed to be named, is expected to break ground this year.
