Demolition permits were issued yesterday for a two-story residential building at 855 N Paulina Street in West Town. The lot is currently occupied by a two-story masonry residence. The permit owner is listed as The Alverna Group, LLC. YIMBY previously reported on this property in February when permits were issued for new construction.
Construction can be seen at the site of West Town‘s 1690 N Elston Avenue, where Property Adventures Corporation has planned a boutique office redevelopment of a former industrial building. This existing masonry structure will be renovated, while a new 10,000-square-foot addition will attach to its west-facing side.
New walls, signage, and windows can be seen along the exterior of the former Morton Salt Factory in West Town, where developers R2 Companies, Blue Star Properties, and Skydeck have planned an adaptive re-use renovation. This revamped complex at 1357 N Elston Avenue will house a new entertainment venue inside the main shed, as well as supplementary R&D offices for Morton Salt in the old packaging buildings. Other changes include the removal of the east shed, a new one-story access corridor, and a new food stand within the former garage.
Permits were issued yesterday for a new three-story residential building at 815 N Hoyne Avenue in West Town. The lot is currently occupied by a two-story masonry residence which was issued a demolition permit on February 10th. The owner is listed as 815 Hoyne Company, and plans indicate that the scope of the project will include two dwelling units, a rear deck with stairs across floors, a basement level, a rooftop deck and trellis, and a detached two-vehicle garage with its own rooftop deck.
Exterior work is advancing closer to completion for a new eight-story building at 1140 W Erie Street in West Town. Known as Inspire West Town, this mixed-use development by Bond Companies is set to yield both ground-level commercial space and 113 rental units. There will be an affordable component to this project, with six of the on-site residences qualifying as affordable, and an additional 17 units subsidized off site. Planned layouts will fall between one- and three-bedrooms, offering attached private balconies for select units.
