A groundbreaking has been held for the new commercial building at 4100 W Ann Lurie Place in Archer Heights. Located just west of the intersection with S Pulaski Road, the new structure will add on to the massive warehouse and kitchen building that currently occupies the site along with demolishing the empty and cracking concrete lot next door. The project is being led and developed by the Greater Chicago Food Depository who is working with Skender to build out the new facility.
Updated plans have been approved for the mixed-use redevelopment at 2618 N Milwaukee Avenue in Logan Square. Located on the six-corner intersection of the neighborhood, across the street from the CTA Blue Line station and Centennial Monument, the existing structure has gone through various owners with failed plans as well. Now Blue Star Properties and Marc Realty have come back with a new revised plan for the former Grace Furniture building which is being designed by local architecture firm K2 Studio.
The superstructure is now emerging for 311 W Huron Street in River North, where developer North Wells Capital has planned a 16-story office and retail commercial building. The developer had secured an $88 million lease with the tenant Spins earlier in 2022, thereby allowing construction to begin. The primary tenant will occupy the three highest leasable floors of the building, which is situated on the site of a former parking lot.
Construction topped out for a planned commercial addition at 732 W Randolph Street at the eastern end of Fulton Market District. This nine-story structure is being developed by Samuel Olivia, whose initiative expands on an existing commercial center known as “Randolph Office Center.” The existing buildings in this assemblage include an adjacent six-story office and retail building, as well as a 12-story building directly to the east, housing condominiums with flex commercial space.
Foundation work is beginning to rise for a two-story commercial building at 801 W Belmont Avenue in Lakeview East. Developed by Hubbard Street Group, the project is replacing a masonry bank and surface parking lot on the block bound by Belmont Avenue, Clark Street, and Halsted Street. This former bank at 3179 N Clark Street was originally designed by Ivar Viehe-Naess and built in 1921. Demolition was completed in late 2021.
