Construction permits have been issued for a three-story residential building at 3329 N Avenue, near the western edge of Avondale. The new structure will replace a two-story brick residential building, whose demolition permits were issued in July of last year.
Construction is rapidly approaching completion for a new five-story residential building at 550 N Ogden Avenue, located near the eastern edge of West Town. According to permits issued this past June, the masonry building will house eight apartment units and an integrated garage on the ground floor. The number of parking spaces will likely tally at eight to match the number of units, though this exact figure has not been confirmed. Additional interior information is not currently known.
Construction permits have been issued for a two-story retail building at 8125 S Halsted Street in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood. Previously, a two-story masonry structure occupied the lot, with demolition permits issued in October of 2019. The new building, developed under the name Carol J. Galuszka, will be occupied on both floors by a liquor store. The store’s name appears to be Spirit Beer & Wine, which was listed in the October demolition permit.
