Construction continues on the mixed-use redevelopment of 4735 N Western Avenue in Lincoln Square. Located just north of the CTA Brown Line at Western station and near the intersection with W Lawrence Avenue, plans to renovate much of the building were revealed earlier this year along the changing corridor. Developer Rany Management is behind the project and worked with local firm Kennedy Mann Architects on its design.
A construction permit has been approved for a residential project at 4333 N Western Avenue in North Center. The four-story masonry building will house four dwelling units and will feature an elevator, a basement level, and a fire suppression sprinkler system. The new structure will have both an attached garage and exterior parking spaces. Nikola Delic owns the property.
The City of Chicago has announced plans to remodel and convert the Diplomat Motel at 5230 N Lincoln Avenue in Lincoln Square. Located towards the northernmost edge of the neighborhood, the building has served as one of the few remaining motels in the city with a unique neon mural on its streetfront. Now the City Council has voted to approve the purchase of the property in order to convert it into stabilization housing in collaboration with the Department of Public Health.
Initial details have been revealed for a mixed-use development at 4454 N Western Avenue in Lincoln Square. Located on the southwest corner with W Sunnyside Avenue and directly across the street from Welles Park, the project would demolish and replace a vacant one-story commercial building with a multi-colored brick facade. The proposal comes to us from developer Gerard Coyle who is working with local architecture-firm 360 Design Studio.
With its construction permit now issued, a new mixed-use development is set to rise in the center of Lincoln Square at 4715 N Western Avenue. This six-story building, led by The Community Builders, will integrate both retail and new affordable units into what is currently a parking lot.
