Demolition permits have been issued for a single-story warehouse/office building and an accompanying single-story guard shack, located at 1241 W Division Street in West Town. Lying just across the river from Goose Island, the masonry and frame structures form part of a larger property that is zoned for PMD-2 (Planned Manufacturing District). The owner Peoples Gas has in turn constructed new business facilities on a separate section of this 15-acre plot.

Exterior work has reached the top floor of AMLI 808, a 17-story mixed-use building located at 808 N Wells Street in Near North Side. Developed by AMLI, programming is set to include retail at ground level, as well as 318 apartments on the above floors. The new structure will stand 225 feet, replacing a former parking lot and sales center that was used for a previous iteration of the project.
