Renovation permits have been issued for an existing four-story masonry building located at 23 W Hubbard Street in River North. Filed under the owner 9-25 W. Hubbard LLC, the top three office floors will be converted to six residential units, while the existing ground-level retail and basement will be retained.
John Hanna is the architect of record. No drawings or renderings of the conversion have been published, and it appears that the existing brick exterior will be retained.
