A groundbreaking has been held for the mixed-use renovation of the old Covent Hotel at 2653 N Clark Street in Lincoln Park. Located on the corner with W Drummond Place, the project is part of a larger proposal which will bring a new market rate apartment building, however the existing rooming motel will be converted to affordable units. This is being led by the NHP Foundation and Drummond Development with local firm Weese Langley Weese Architects working on its design.

The construction for a 22-story mixed-use building now dubbed “The Lydian” is closing in on completion at 513 S Damen Avenue in the Illinois Medical District. With 279 rental units and 1,000 square feet of retail on the ground level, the 242-foot-tall structure is being developed by Marquette Companies and meant to cater an increasing apartment market amongst medical professionals working nearby.
Structural work has now begun on the second floor of 140 N Ashland Avenue, a 12-story mixed-use building rising in Near West Side. Under development by Marquette Companies, the new building will be integrated with an existing five-story brick building adjacent south, yielding a total of 210 apartments atop ground-level retail. The development will yield a minimum of 10 percent on-site affordable units, while it has yet to be determined if the remaining five percent will be on site or off.
Full building permits have been issued for the remaining half of the mixed-use development at 2653 N Clark Street in Lincoln Park. The new project will redevelop the existing Covent Hotel and build a new addition on its surface parking lot at 537 W Drummond Place which received the approval. Local developer Drummond Development has partnered with architecture firm Brininstool + Lynch on the design and restoration while working with the National Historic Preservation Foundation (NHP) on the latter.
