A groundbreaking has been held for the United Yards development along 47th Street in Back of the Yards. With its center located on the intersection with S Ashland Avenue the multi-building proposal won its Invest South/West bid back in 2021, now construction has been split into phases with the first two underway. Developers Celadon Partners and Blackwood Group worked with local architecture firm DesignBridge on the adaptive reuse and new construction proposal.
Final zoning approval was granted for the mixed-use development at 2354 and 2355 N Washtenaw Avenue in Logan Square. The pair of buildings will be located on the southern corners of the intersection with W Fullerton Avenue across the street from Haas Park, replacing a one-story bank and a parking lot with much needed density in the growing neighborhood. The project comes to us from Hibernian Development who worked with local firm 360 Design Studio on the nearly twin structures.
Updated details have been approved for the residential development at 330 W Chestnut Street in the Near North Side. Located on the intersection with N Orleans Street near the upcoming North Union megadevelopment, the project replaces a vacant lot which has served as a parking lot in recent years. Now developers Draper & Kramer and BlitzLake Partners have returned to the Plan Commission after receiving approval last fall, as they are amending the plans designed by FitzGerald Associates.
Construction is wrapping up for a new affordable residential development for seniors at 833 W Wilson Avenue in Uptown. Brinshore Development LLC has joined forces with Landon Bone Baker Architect, a firm renowned for their affordable housing designs, to bring this project to life. The building will be situated on a vacant lot to the west of the intersection with N Clarendon Avenue, close to the recently approved Sarah’s on Lakeview.
Construction permits have been issued for a new residential development at 6517 S Drexel Avenue in Woodlawn. The project involves the construction of a three-story, three-unit masonry building with open rear steel decks and an egress stair at the second and third floors. The development will be situated in the Woodlawn neighborhood and is owned by BKRS Development LLC. Previously, a vacant lot occupied the site.
