The Chicago City Council has approved the mixed-use development at 301 S Green Street in the West Loop. Located south of W Randolph Street, the proposal will bring new rental units to an area of the neighborhood that has seen less construction than its northern counterpart, while also adding some height away from the Eisenhower Expressway cluster of towers. Developers GSP Development and Golub & Company are working together with local firm Goettsch Partners on the new building.

New details have been revealed on the sale of the Damen Silos at 2900 S Damen Avenue in McKinley Park. Located on the northeast corner with W 29th Street along the Chicago River just north of the Stevenson Expressway, the long abandoned structures were put on sale earlier this year by the state in order to cut spending. The process which consisted of accepting various bids from local companies seems to have concluded with a winner being selected.
The Chicago City Council has approved the mixed-use development dubbed NOMA across multiple lots in West Town. Consisting of a mix of adaptive re-use and new construction, the multi-phase project is generally bound by W Ohio Street to the north, W Hubbard Street to the south, N Halsted to the west, and N Des Plaines Street to the east. The team at Shapack Partners, who developed various West Loop properties, is partnering with architecture firms Chicago-based Eckenhoff Saunders and New York-based ODA on its design.
An updated completion date has been announced for the upcoming CTA Damen Green Line Station, located at 2001 W Lake Street in the Near West Side neighborhood.

The Chicago Transit Authority is leading the project with local architecture firm Perkins & Will in charge of its design.
Initial demolition permits have been issued for the mixed-use development at 566 W Van Buren Street in West Loop Gate.

Led by co-developers Riverside Investment and Blue Star Properties, the project is being designed by Antunovich Associates who worked on the recently completed 609 W Randolph Street nearby in a similar industrial style.
