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.
As the 30th tallest construction project in Chicago’s year-end countdown and set to stand 155 feet in height, 140 N Ashland Avenue is now making headway in Near West Side. The 12-story building by Marquette Companies will attach to an existing five-story brick building, offering a total 210 rental apartments in addition to first-floor retail. At least 10 percent of the units will be affordable, while the remaining five percent will either be on- or off-site (yet to be indicated).
Exterior renovation work continues to take shape for the new Guinness Taproom and Brewery in Fulton Market. Owned by Fred Latsko, the former Pennsylvania Railroad Terminal Building at 375 N Morgan Street is being developed by Guinness as part of a deal that was finalized last year. Once a popular street art canvas, the converted beer hub will now contain a 10-barrel brewery, a pub, and a restaurant serving local chef cuisine.
The lower levels of the superstructure are taking shape for 360 N Green Street, a 24-story mixed-use tower at the northeast corner of Fulton Market. The 399-foot-tall tower is being developed by Sterling Bay directly east of the Guinness Brewery, already in progress.
