A new redevelopment at 839 W 79th Street in Auburn Gresham has been granted Tax Increment Financing (TIF). Led by the Greater Auburn Gresham Development Corporation (GAGDC), the project looks to redevelop an existing four-story structure and turn it into a mixed-use development that will serve the community. Located along W 79th Street, the building sits on an interior lot between S Green Street and S Peoria Street.
Renderings have been revealed for a new proposed five-story mixed-use building at 1801 W Grand Avenue in West Town. Located on a corner lot, the project sits at the southwest corner of the intersection of W Grand Avenue and N Wood Street. The nearest public transportation is the 65 CTA Bus, accessed at the Grand and Wood stop on the edge of the site. The Ashland CTA L station, serviced by the Green and Pink Lines, is a 13-minute walk away. Salina Vest and Planrise LLC are in charge of the project development.
Last month, YIMBY reported that the 16-story office building at 400 N Aberdeen Street, dubbed “Fulton Labs,” had received its initial demolition permits. This past week, full construction permits were issued for the project, with foundation and structural work likely to begin this fall.
Recent photos show work being wrapped up on the conversion of The Loop‘s Marshall Field & Company building at 24 E Washington Street. When complete it will house new office space in the top six levels of its 13 floors.
