Work on the exterior wall has climbed the western face of the Peoria Green development, a six-story condominium project at 123 S Peoria Street in West Loop. Planned by ZSD Corporation, the building squeezes within an irregularly shaped lot, requiring it to split into adjacent east and west wings. ZSD Corporation plans for 17 units spread across its 70,000 square feet, ranging from four- to five-bedrooms. Prices range between $1.8 million and $3 million, according to the development website which also lists units are 90 percent sold. In January Crain’s reported that given the unexpected demand in sales, the developers altered the original programming to include more higher-priced units.
Demolition permits were recently issued for two adjacent residential buildings at 117 and 119 S Bell Avenue in Near West Side, several blocks west of United Center.
