A 180,900-square-foot warehouse has been proposed for 328 W 40th Place in Fuller Park, just several blocks south of Guaranteed Rate Field. The project site is being developed by The Missner Group and will replace a currently vacant lot. Designed by Ware Malcomb, the facade will have a colorful facade for an industrial building, with patterns of blue precast concrete wrapping around the rectangular structure. While a tenant has not yet been announced, the interior will be able to accommodate light manufacturing, food packaging, or distribution. As for on-site transportation infrastructure, there will be 35 loading docks and parking for 176 vehicles.
Since last week’s site prep update, an initial foundation permit has now been issued for the planned hospital addition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital in Lake View. The construction of a new lateral addition, known as phase 03A, is taking place at 900 W Nelson Street. This structure will be attached to an adjacent medical building constructed in 2015. Once the phase 03A structure has been built, phase 03B – a vertical expansion sitting on top of both the earlier 2015 building and phase 03A – will begin construction.

A cafe will also be located at the southeast corner of the building’s street level
Construction is now well underway for 151 N Michigan Avenue in New Eastside, where BJB Partners has planned for a three-story mixed-use building. Located at the prominent corner of Michigan Avenue and Randolph Street, the development replaces a former single-story restaurant venue. The new construction will house a total of 15,000 square feet of commercial space, of which 5,300 square feet will be retail on the first level. This level will be split into either two or three commercial units depending on demand. The above floors will either be office or additional retail, along with a bridge connection on the second level to the adjacent Millennium Park Plaza.
