Construction permits were recently issued for a four-story residential development at 4733 N Wolcott Avenue in Ravenswood. FEPH-Highland Park LLC is the listed owner, who plans 112 total units and 67 parking spaces. The structure is set to replace a former parking lot and two-story brick commercial building, and is the third installment of a three-part development that is bound by Wolcott, Lawrence, and Ravenswood Avenues. While the first sub-area is a now-complete single-story bank, the second planned development received permits earlier this month under the same developer, architect, and general contractor.

Structural work has climbed to the fourth floor of 15 N Elizabeth Street, a five-story residential building near the southwest corner of West Loop. The condominum development is a collaboration between Ranquist Development Group, Jodi Development, and Campbell Coyle.
Construction permits have been issued for a five-story mixed-use building planned for 3637 N Central Avenue in Portage Park. Filed under the owner Innovative Markets Inc, the project will include ground-floor retail and storage space on the four floors above. The new development will replace a currently vacant grass plot, and will ultimately stand just over 57 feet in height. According to planning documents, the developer was granted approval last summer to extend the storage space into a portion of the originally designated retail space.
Exterior construction is now complete for the mixed-use 800 W Fulton Market in West Loop‘s Fulton Market district. At 300 feet in height, the 18-story edifice is one of West Loop’s tallest buildings. Bound by Fulton Market, N Green Street, W Wayman Street, and N Halsted street, the full-block project has replaced a series of low- and mid-rise masonry buildings.
Demolition permits were recently issued for a three-story masonry building at 462 N Morgan Street in West Town. Filed under the owner Baby Grand LLC, no plans have been published as to what will replace the multi-unit residential structure. However, the parcel is currently zoned for M2-2 Light Industry District, which allows for moderate manufacturing, warehouses, as well as freight and recycling facilities. M2-2 also permits a floor area ratio of 2.2, so that any new development may have up to 2.2 times the square footage as the containing lot. Currently it is unclear if the owner plans to apply for an amendment to change the designation.
