Curtain wall facets can be seen taking shape along the exterior of 1012 W Addison Street, a new three-story sportsbook betting addition to Wrigley Field in Lake View. The project is being spearheaded by the Chicago Cubs and Marquee Development, whose new wing of the iconic stadium comes as a result of a recent reversal of the city’s sports betting ban. This new ordinance has led to five total professional sports stadiums throughout the city now integrating their own betting operations.

In a week of similar milestones, construction has gone vertical for 741 N Wells Street, a 21-story mixed-use development in River North. The 201,000-square-foot development by Vista Property will yield a total of 168 apartment units atop a ground-level retail component. The project will also preserve a two-story masonry building situated directly to the north.
Foundation work is beginning to rise for a two-story commercial building at 801 W Belmont Avenue in Lakeview East. Developed by Hubbard Street Group, the project is replacing a masonry bank and surface parking lot on the block bound by Belmont Avenue, Clark Street, and Halsted Street. This former bank at 3179 N Clark Street was originally designed by Ivar Viehe-Naess and built in 1921. Demolition was completed in late 2021.
As construction continues to makes rapid gains, full permits have now been issued for a 19-story mixed-use building at 210 N Aberdeen Street in Fulton Market. LG Development Group has planned to construct a 214-foot-tall structure that will sit on an L-shaped site. The building will include 10,700 square feet of retail space and 363 apartment units. The scope and design have changed slightly prior to construction, having reduced the total units from 414 residences and the height from 239 feet.
