Multiple sources say McHugh, which has a long history of serving as general contractor on projects with SoBro co-developer Magellan Development Group, wants to find space in an existing building and from which it can interview subcontractors and manage contruction. Magellan, which is also based in Chicago, is partnering with Nashville-based Giarratana Development to develop the 33-story tower.

SoBro would include 342 luxury rental apartment units, 378 parking spaces and more than 18,000 square feet of Class A, ground-level retail space. The tower is planned to rise adjacent to both the Encore condominium tower to the west and The Pinnacle at Symphony Place office skyscraper to the north.
