Demolition work can be seen at the site of the former Sears department store, situated at 4712 W Irving Park Road in Portage Park. Under development by Novak Construction, this initial work will clear the way for a mixed-use transformation.

Just across the street, work is progressing rapidly for a 10-story senior living and retail development known as Clarendale Six Corners.
