Excavation has begun for a two-story retail addition at the site of Near North Side‘s 44 E Walton Street, directly north of the recently completed Brunello Cucinelli retail addition under the same address. Situated near the center of the Rush & Division commercial area, the entrance will be along Walton’s cross street at 939 N Rush Street.
44 E Walton Street
Permits have been issued for a two-story addition to an existing two-story commercial building located at 44 E Walton Street in Near North Side. Owned by Rush Walton LLC, the L-shaped building currently houses a variety of retail storefronts and will continue to be retail-oriented once the new portion is complete. The filing description seems to indicate that the addition will be a separate mercantile space from the existing stores, with frontage located at 937 N Rush Street that lies caddy-corner to Walton Street.
