Foundation permits have been issued for a three-story daycare center at 2745 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Park. Filed under the owner Kensington Lincoln Park Building LLC, the commercial development will occupy the site of a previously demolished trio of masonry structures. Details regarding the size of the building footprint and its square footage are not currently known. However, the parcel’s zoning designation allows for a floor area ratio of up to 2.2, meaning that the total building’s floor space may be up to 2.2 times that of the site itself.
Initial work has commenced for West Loop‘s 932 W Randolph Street, where L3 Capital is planning the renovation of an existing three-story masonry building, as well as a new three-story addition.

Programming will include retail space at ground level, with office space on the two floors above. The Commission on Chicago Landmarks also deemed that the project and its design would not have an adverse affect on the area’s historical context.
