Initial funding has been announced for the mixed-use development at 6300 S Cottage Grove Avenue in Woodlawncovered the plans to restore and redevelop the old Washington Park National Bank building mid-last year. Now plans for the structure located on the southwest corner of the intersection with E 63rd Street received new life thanks to city-approved funding. Developer DL3 Realty has been working on its plans for a few years now and is working with local firm bKL Architecture on this iteration.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved the mixed-use development at 415 N Sangamon Street in the West Loop. Located on the northeast corner of the intersection with W Kinzie Street the project will break the mold of green-design with an innovative facade. Renderings were revealed earlier this year at a local community meeting, now developer Fortem Voluntas Partners is moving forward with the proposal designed by local firm Eckenhoff Saunders as it begins to gather momentum.
The Committee on Design has reviewed the updated plans for 330 N Green Street in Fulton Market. Located just north of the intersection with W Wyman Street and replacing a vacant lot that was once the home of Coyne College, the mixed-use proposal is moving forward with a new taller and slimmer proposal we last covered in October. The Gensler-designed tower will be the third in the immediate area by developer Sterling Bay, with 360 N Green Street reaching its final height this week just to the north.
A land purchase has been made for the mixed-use development at 655 W Madison Street in West Loop Gate. Located just east of the Kennedy Expressway/I-90 and replacing a surface parking lot, YIMBY last reported on the proposal in August 2022 as new renderings were released. We now know that developer John Buck Company has purchased the lot, closing a multi-year deal which depended on the city approving the HOK– and JGMA-designed plans for the site.
Demolition work has begun and a groundbreaking is imminent for the second phase of the Harper Court development at 5209 S Harper Avenue in Hyde Park. Located on the corner with E 52nd Street, the upcoming structure will replace a one-story building and vertically expand the existing shops from phase one. Its construction comes after multiple revisions and set-backs that downsized the originally proposed high-rise to the current low-rise. Developers Beacon Capital Partners and Trammell Crow are working with Elkus Manfredi Architects and Interactive Design Architects on the updated proposal we covered last summer.
