A new construction permit has been issued for the first phase of a mixed-use development at 3437 W Flournoy Street in Homan Square. Dubbed the Homan Square Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) project, the three-site proposal is being built in multiple phases with the lots centering around S Homan Avenue just south of the highway. Hoping to tackle various housing issues, the locally-led Foundation for Homan Square is envisioning the project with popular design firm JGMA working on the buildings.
Permits were issued on the 29th for the removal of a two-story residential building located at 831 N Maplewood Avenue in West Town. The permit owner is listed as 831 N Maplewood LLC and they were also issued a permit for a new construction back in early October. The new building plans consist of three total units, a basement level, a rooftop deck, front and rear decks, and a detached three-vehicle garage with its own rooftop deck.
Taking the 29th spot in our year-end countdown is the residential development at 4600 N Marine Drive in Uptown. Sitting right across the street from Montrose Beach on the intersection with W Wilson Avenue, the project replaces a surface parking lot previously owned by Weiss Memorial Hospital after much controversy with locals. Developer Lincoln Property Company has been leading the charge of the Valerio Dewalt Train-designed building which broke ground recently.
Construction permits have been issued for a four-story mixed-use building set for 4939 N Damen Avenue in Ravenswood. Fortech, Inc is the filing owner, whose plans include 12 total units, along with first-floor retail and a 12-vehicle garage topped with a rooftop deck. The property was formerly occupied by a one-floor masonry commercial building.
