An extension has been granted and a redesign revealed for the mixed-use development at 130 N Franklin Street in The Loop. Located on the southwest corner with W Randolph Street, news of the proposal broke back in 2015 as a replacement of an existing empty lot along with a surface parking lot as well. Struggling to execute a tower on it, developer Tishman Speyer was granted an extension on their previous approval due to the last two years. The team at Tishman have been leading the efforts with local architecture firm Krueck Sexton Partners on all iterations of the design.
Cladding has begun installation for the five-story 1020 W Randolph Street in Fulton Market District. The commercial building will offer ground-floor retail and upper-level Class A offices, with L3 Capital as the developer. The building will have a 1,850-square-foot rooftop deck encased in amenities and 22,000 square feet of interior space with modern finishes, living walls, and warehouse-style windows.
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.
Final touches are underway for an 11-story mixed-use building branded as “Cadence,” situated at 2050 W Ogden Avenue in the Illinois Medical District. The development will be anchored by 10,000 square feet of retail and 161 apartment residences scaling from studios up to two-bedroom units. In partnership with AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust, East Lake Management & Development is the developer behind the 108-foot-tall structure and its containing master plan known as Gateway.
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.
