Construction permits have been issued for a two-story frame church located at 3133 W Carroll Avenue in East Garfield Park. Filed under owner Burl Rose, the property had an ordinance passed in 2018 allowing for the previous zoning designation of M1-2 Limited Manufacturing Business Park District to convert to C1-2 Neighborhood Commercial District. The site is currently a vacant lot and once housed a single-story masonry industrial building.
Cladding is well underway for Rush University Medical Center’s new 10-story cancer and neuroscience center at 850 W Jackson Boulevard. The project is named after Joan and Paul Rubschlager, whose donation not only helped fund its construction, but is also the largest in the institution’s history.
A zoning ordinance was approved last month for 2510 W George Street in Avondale, allowing the planned four-story residential building to proceed.

Currently, the property is occupied by a vacant lot. The now-approved ordinance requested a reduction of the required rear setback from 30 feet to zero feet.
