YIMBY has recent construction photos of Onni Group‘s third and final tower, a 41-story mixed-use building in the Old Town Park development, a large site just east of Near North Side‘s Seward Park. Located at 1140 N Wells Street, the three-tower complex is developed by the Vancouver-based real estate company, which has built a series of other apartment buildings in the Near North Side area. Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is responsible for designing all three phases. Phase One consists of a 32-story residential high rise northeast of the third tower, while Phase Two is a 39-story mixed-use tower adjacent to the east of it.
Permits were filed last week for a two-story residential building at 1244 S Washtenaw Avenue in the Douglas Park neighborhood.
Topping off at 13 stories, 448 N LaSalle Drive has reached its full height in River North. YIMBY previously reported on the office development which filed for construction permits this past spring. Construction photos currently show the building’s structure reaching the final floor, where the rooftop deck will be. Additionally, the main curtain wall now covers the first seven floors, with the eighth floor partially installed.
Permits were filed recently for a four-story residential building at 3253 N Elston Avenue in Avondale. The lot currently sits empty, as the three-floor duplex home once on the property was demolished between 2016 and 2017.
