Work is progressing on the Obama Presidential Center in Jackson Park, with the main tower now reaching around one-third of its final height. The Obama Foundation is overseeing the development of this complex, set to include three public buildings: a museum, a forum building, and a new library branch.
Exterior construction is nearing the finish line for a new four-story mixed-use building at 508 E Pershing Avenue in Bronzeville. This new structure is being developed by The Community Builders, whose plans include 3,500 square feet of commercial space, topped by 53 apartment dwellings on the upper floors. Prior to development, the property was occupied by a vacant grass lot.
Facade work is now underway at 508 E Pershing Road, where The Community Builders has planned a four-story mixed-use building. With a roof height of 50 feet, the structure will offer 3,500 square feet of at-grade commercial space and 53 residential units planned for the upper floors. Approximately two-thirds of these units will be designated as affordable under the Chicago Housing Authority, while the remaining will be market rate apartments. Sizes are distributed into 50 one-bedrooms and three two-bedrooms.
As facade work enters its final leg, glass installation is now underway for the University of Illinois’ new medical building in the Illinois Medical District. Known as the UI Health Outpatient Surgery Center & Specialty Clinics, the six-story facility will offer more than 200,000 square feet of programming.
