A permit was issued early last week for a two-story commercial development to be located at 801 Belmont Avenue in the Lake View neighborhood. This is a corner lot and has also been addressed as 3179 N Clark Street.

Hubbard Street Group is the developer of this project. The new construction will feature a masonry facade and a total of 59,000 square feet of useable retail space. Plans indicate there will also be on-site 87 parking spaces accessible via an underground garage. The previous structure was issued a demolition permit and has since been removed.

The Belmont station is also available via a four-minute walk west where the Red, Purple, and Brown Lines can be found.

Howard Hirsch of Hirsch MPG is listed as the architect of record. William A. Randolph Inc will act as the general contractor on this project. A full timeline and an anticipated completion date have not yet been revealed.

  1. Awful project in way too many ways. Just sad.

  2. It would be much better if it had 6-8 floors of residential on top of it. Such a missed opportunity.

  3. An utterly disappointing downgrade for Clark & Belmont. A beautiful bank building destroyed for a bland generic 2-floor structure just a block from an important rapid transit station. Shame on Hubbard Street Group.

    While I agree this could have been much better. And I’m sad about the old bank building. 70% of this parcel was a parking lot and the new anchor grocery store will be a welcome addition.

  5. Horrid. Surprised this is going forward in lakeview..

  6. The developer should be shot along with the useless alder-subman who gave the go-ahead to this pathetic development. It’s a shame that such a beautiful and historic building is being destroyed, and only to be replaced with a sh!tty suburban design/concept.

  7. And not a shocker that an amazon grocery store is going into this structure… and that they should have done a facadectomy and could definitely have affforded it! Such a shame!
