Work is getting closer to completion for Structured Development’s Shops at Big Deahl Phase 2 in Near North Side. The overall $250 million scheme is oriented around a new urban park on an elbow-shaped parcel. Phase one of this project was the construction of a new three-story climbing gym known as Movement Lincoln Park. Situated at the east end of the property, this first component was completed last year.

Directly west of the Chicago River across from Goose Island, a tower crane permit has now been issued for a large-scale distribution center and warehouse. Owned and developed by Logistics Property Company (LPC), the 11-acre site was once home to a Peoples Gas production facility and required extensive rehabilitation following its previous use.
Completed demolition can be seen at the site of 1112 W Carroll Avenue in Fulton Market, where developer Trammell Crow Company has planned for a 33-story, primarily residential tower. Set to house 377 units and a ground-floor restaurant, the 370-foot-tall structure will be one of two. The second is a planned 26-story, 410-foot-tall office tower directly to the south at 315 N May Street. This even taller high-rise will yield 650,000 square feet of leasable office space and 15,000 square feet of retail.
A rising core and row of V-shaped truss supports can be seen at 360 N Green Street, where developer Sterling Bay has planned for a 24-story mixed-use tower. With a height of 399 feet, the project will be built on a vacant lot located at Fulton Market‘s Green and Kinzie intersection, directly east of the now-underway Guinness Brewery and pub.
The City Council has approved a nine-story mixed-use development residing at 330 W Chestnut Street in the Near North Side. The 115-foot-tall edifice by Draper & Kramer and BlitzLake Partners will house a mix of 128 residential units alongs atop 2,620 square feet of ground-level retail.
