Updated plans have been revealed for the affordable residential development at 5853 N Broadway in Edgewater. Located south of the intersection with W Thorndale Avenue and adjacent to the Broadway Armory Community Center, the new structure will replace a one-story building and its parking lot with much needed vertical density. We last covered the project in April of last year as its initial design was released, now an updated design has been made public of the proposal by Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation, with Landon Bone Baker Architects working on the new aesthetic.

An official opening ceremony has been held for the new mixed-use development at 2602 N Emmett Street in Logan Square. Located on the intersection with W Kedzie Avenue, the completed project replaced a vacant parking lot adjacent to the CTA Blue Line Logan Square station. Becoming the first Equitable Transit Oriented Development (ETOD) in the city, it was developed by local non-profit Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation who operates now over 2,000 affordable units across the city. Their team partnered with Chicago-based Landon Bone Baker Architects who are well known for their work on multiple affordable buildings as well.
Final touches are in progress for Bickerdike Redevelopment Corporation’s Emmett Street Apartments, situated at 2602-38 N Emmett Street in Logan Square. With a reported construction price tag of $40 million, the seven-story edifice provides 4,300 square feet of retail, along with 100 affordable units on the upper floors. Of these units, half will be available to Section 8 Chicago Housing Authority voucher holders, while the remaining are available via the application process.
