Structural work is nearly two-thirds complete on the 74- and 49-story towers that comprise JDL‘s massive One Chicago Square mixed-use development, located near the northeast corner of River North.

Zoning has been approved for a four-story residential building at 3604 N Campbell Avenue in North Center. The owner, listed under 2604 North Campbell Avenue, LLC, is planning 12 total dwelling units. Zoning designation of B3-2 permits commercial space on the first floor and apartments above. The now-approved amendment sought to include all-residential use, foregoing grade-level retail space. The first floor will instead include resident parking and an amenity room.
Updated photos show the addition of mosaic-like cladding near the southwest side of Catalog, a near-complete three-story structure surrounding the base of Willis Tower in The Loop. This cladding marks the final exterior piece of EQ Group‘s 300,000-square-foot project at 233 S Wacker Drive, which houses updated tenant and visitor entrances, restaurants, and a third-floor meeting area by meeting space company Convene. Convene’s venue will offer tenants more than 90,000 square feet of rentable gathering areas. Atop the new structure is also 30,000 square feet of green space, accessible from the fourth floor of the original structure.
Demolition permits have been issued for a two-story masonry building located at 1511 W 59th Street in West Englewood. First Allegiance is the owner behind the multi-unit residential edifice, although plans for the site currently remain unknown. The zoning designation of B3-1 would allow for larger retail storefronts and a maximum height of 38 feet. B3-1’s floor area ratio is 1.2, which permits any structure’s floor area to be 1.2 times the area of the total property.
