Structural work has reached the third floor of 1039-41 W Belmont Avenue, a four-story mixed-use building currently underway in Lake View. Cumin Restaurant is the occupying owner, filed under the name Kathmandu Properties in the original construction permit. The new structure will replace a former two-story masonry building that received demolition permits in May 2019.
Renovation permits have been issued for a three-story residential building at 2215 W Chicago Avenue in West Town. MVRS Properties is the filing owner, whose plans include a rehab of the existing 12-unit structure, the reconstruction of the rear porch, and the construction of a six-car concrete parking pad.
Renderings have been revealed for a proposed mixed-use development at 4715 N Western Avenue in Lincoln Square. Located at the intersection of W Leland Avenue and N Western Avenue, the site is a city-owned public parking lot on the northeastern corner of the intersection. The Community Builders is the developer behind the concept.
Construction permits were filed last week for a three-story residential building at 4351 S Vincennes Avenue in Bronzeville. With McBrearty Construction Company as the listed owner, plans consist of three total units, a basement, a private rooftop deck, and a detached three-car garage with an additional rooftop deck. The project is set to replace a formerly vacant grass parcel.
Caisson work has kicked off for The Reed, a 41-story residential tower along the river in South Loop. Situated at 234 W Polk Street, the 447-foot-tall structure serves as the second phase of a larger five-building development by Lendlease known as Southbank. This masterplan was formerly occupied by a large grass parcel that had long been vacant. Underneath this land were a series of freight tunnels that have undergone a sealing process over the past few months, thereby allowing The Reed to proceed.
