Structural work is now at full height for a four-story residential building at 1118 W Patterson Avenue in Wrigleyville. Developer Patterson Green LLC has planned a total of 18 apartment units, two of which will be affordable under Affordable Requirement Ordinance requirements.
The Chicago City Council has approved the rezoning of 160 N Morgan Street in West Loop. The approval clears the way for the bKL-designed structure to rise near the CTA Green Line Morgan stop, adjacent to the popular late-night spot Federales. Developer Sterling Bay continues to leave its mark across the once meat-packing neighborhood with the new mixed-use structure featuring ground-floor retail to complement the surrounding area.
The Chicago Plan Commission has approved two projects bringing a total of three new towers to the ever-growing West Loop. Both projects have recently gone through design updates after receiving feedback from the Committee on Design and will now be able to move forward to the Chicago City Council for final approval. The projects consist of the two-tower project at 315 N May Street and 1112 W Carroll Avenue and the new life-science building at 400 N Elizabeth Street.
Rezoning has been approved by the Chicago City Council for a new mixed-use development at 2913 W Belmont Avenue in Avondale. Replacing a single-story home, the lot is near the intersection of W Belmont Avenue and N Francisco Avenue and is being privately developed. The existing home is popular with neighbors with its deep setbacks creating the rare front yard in the city that frames the ivy-covered three-flat next door.
Extended funding for the redevelopment of the remaining parcels of the former Cabrini-Green homes has been approved by the Community Development Commission in Near North Side. The first of the two separate vacant parcels just west of downtown, sits north on the corner of N Larrabee Street and N Clybourn Avenue, replacing the recently demolished Near North Career High School. The second parcel just south of the first sits on the northeast corner of W Division Street and N Halstead Street next to a Target that was developed on former housing property as well.
