Initial plans have been revealed for a mixed-use development within the walls of the existing Washington Park National Bank building at 6300 S Cottage Grove Avenue in Woodlawn. Located on the southwest corner with E 63rd Street directly adjacent to the CTA Green Line terminal station, the historical structure has fallen into deep disrepair from years of sitting vacant. Developers DL3 Realty have owned the site for various years with their precious plans being proposed prior to the pandemic and having since changed, although local firm bKL Architecture remains as the project’s designer.
The Chicago Committee on Design has reviewed the initial details for a new mixed-use medical masterplan in Roseland. The overall plan area is bound by W 110th Street to the north, S Michigan Avenue to the east, W 112th Street to the south, and S Eggleston Avenue to the west and is near to the recently opened Pullman National Monument. The project was brought forward by the Roseland Medical District Commission who is working with a team of designers led by local firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, all of which are helping to provide a zoning and phasing scheme for the upcoming developments.
Demolition is complete for a two-story masonry building, clearing the way for a four-story mixed-use development at 3322 N Halsted Street in Lake View East. Developer and owner Lion Halsted 3 LLC has planned for seven rental apartments atop 814 square feet of ground-floor retail. There will be five on-site bike spots and two parking spaces.
Demolition permits have been approved for an L-shaped parcel at 210 N Aberdeen Street in Fulton Market, giving way to a new 19-story mixed-use building. LG Development Group has planned for 414 apartment units atop 10,500 square feet of retail. Currently, the site is occupied by a series of low-rise brick buildings. One of these structures, the historic Arthur Harris Building, will only be partially demolished then integrated into the new design.
Initial Tax Increment Financing (TIF) approval has been granted by the Community Development Commission for a new mixed-use development at 757 and 838 W 79th Street in Auburn Gresham. Of the two sites, one is located on the intersection with S Green Street, and the other with S Halsted Street, both will be seeing new construction from the Invest South/West initiative winning project. Development team Evergreen Imagine, made up of Imagine Group and Evergreen Redevelopment, is working with local architecture firms Ross Barney Architects and Nia Architects on the revised proposal.
